Meridian massage appointments

Jack Logan

Meridian Massage Practitioner

Jack is a qualified shiatsu practitioner from the Australian Shiatsu College (Dip. Shiatsu & Oriental Therapies) who believes in using a hands on approach to move tension and deepen relaxation.

He uses meridian massage techniques to stimulate the acupuncture channels and points, as well as muscles, tendons and soft tissues to balance the internal organs.

Jack is particularly interested in working with health issues that deplete energy, including people who are recovering from chemotherapy, chronic fatigue, stress and anxiety.

As well as being a passionate practitioner of meridian massage, Jack brings his knowledge of physical therapy with a decade of experience in yoga (qualified 200 hr Hatha Yoga Teacher, 2017) and currently trains in Ziran Qigong.

Facial rejuvenation and cosmetic acupuncture

We also provide facial rejuvenation and cosmetic acupuncture appointments at our Melbourne CBD and Prahran clinics.

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, is a cosmetic-focused and personalised treatment for those who are concerned about the signs of premature ageing that can affect the muscles, soft tissue and skin of the face.

Facial acupuncture treatments are performed by Chinese medicine practitioners who will assess your skin concerns combined with pulse and tongue diagnosis to uncover any internal organ imbalances.

In addition to using points on the body, your practitioner will apply extra-fine needles on the face to promote circulation and naturally stimulate your body’s own healing response.

Visible signs of premature ageing, long-term stress and poor internal body health can appear on different areas of the face as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin sagging, drooping and loss of firmness
  • Dull and dry skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Acne and scarring
  • Skin redness, swelling and pain
  • Face and jaw tension

Acupuncture meridians connect every part of the body and a facial acupuncture treatment doesn’t just treat the face – it considers both internal and external symptoms and causes to gently and naturally treat each person’s face as a reflection of their whole body.

We advise our clients who have recently had any facial procedures, injections or treatment including laser, microdermabrasion, facial lifting or peeling, to wait 6 months before commencing facial acupuncture. It is recommended, but not required to remove makeup during your facial acupuncture session.

If you would like to know more, please call (03) 9629 9920 to book your initial facial acupuncture consultation and assessment.
