OUR STORY

 

Métange was born out of necessity. After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in 2017, an extended hospital stay was the catalyst that led our founder to be re-acquained with the practice of gua sha, a healing eastern massage technique. 

“After experiencing facial swelling from my condition, I relied on gua sha as a natural remedy. I found it to be a mindful and self-soothing practice that reminded me of my cultural roots. Unable to find a gua sha tool shaped for my specific needs, I created our Obsidian Stone out of necessity. I saw the importance of the skincare routine, and the sacredness of the self-care ritual, not only for physical wellness but mental clarity as well. My goal is to transform the at-home self-massage experience, turning it into an act of healing, a moment of solace for one’s self.” 

Featured in Forbes, Vogue, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, The Toronto Star and FASHION Magazine, Métange’s self-healing tools aim to merge traditional eastern healing practises into everyday self-care.
