Face ReadingWhat will be covered during the 2 days:

Overview of Face Reading and it’s importance as a diagnostic tool in clinic. The face is a very valuable tool to help us understand the physiology of the body. This ancient technique used in Chinese Medicine for thousands of years not only helps us understand someone’s health but also their personality, likes and dislikes, abilities and passions. If you look at the eyebrows we can see how the liver and gall bladder organs are doing, we can see issues with the spine like back pain on the nose as well as how the Pancreas is dealing with sugar. The temple area can tell us how someone is doing with medication or suffering with depression and the philtrum is the area that reveals our fertility and creativity.

Lines and Colour of the Face: Identifying the emotional markers on the face like lines, and looking at changes in colors on the face and their meaning in relationship to depression, disease and potential illnesses.
