Course tutor(s): Adrian Jenkinson. The inventor of the WaveStone and the owner of WaveStone Therapies Ltd.
Having initially qualified and worked as a paramedic, his success as both a national league field hockey and ice hockey player (where Adrian also provided game day medical cover) led to him being inexorably drawn towards sports and massage therapy.
Five years ago, having become very concerned about stress to his fingers, hands and wrists, Adrian set out to create an ergonomically shaped tool that would protect hands (and therefore careers), aid therapists in their massage and bring relief and healing to their clients. He scoured the globe to find a natural stone that would retain both heat and cold, experimenting with many different materials and developing the design of a treatment tool that could follow all the contours of the body’s muscles. When Adrian travelled to China in his capacity as a sports therapist, his host introduced him to a local stonemason who had the raw materials, skills and understanding to help with the project. He produced various prototypes that Adrian brought back to the UK to fine tune, safety test and trial with clients. The much awaited result was a hand-crafted massage tool made of White Jade – the WaveStone. Adrian has been using the WaveStone extensively in his practice for the last three years along with increasing numbers of professional colleagues in the Clinical, Sports, Massage, Spa and Salon sectors. Might this be a good time for you to join them and start to safeguard your living?
