"Your face, my thane, is as a book where Men may read strange matters." - William Shakespeare “Macbeth”
For more than 2000 years, practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have relied on face reading for insight into the physical, psychological, and emotional state of a patient. Oriental Facial Diagnosis has its roots deep in Buddhism and Chinese cultural and scientific life. Ancient scholars and thinkers have written extensively on the subject. The first texts such as the Bamboo Chronicles were written in the 3rd century BC and Chinese physiognomy is documented in the Tang manuscripts from Dunhuang which are dated 500-600 AD, as well as material from the 10th - 15th century AD.
Based on an understanding of the shapes, markings and features of a face, a therapist can discover important facts about the health and life of a patient, related to the principles of Chinese medicine. The face has zones which relate to the internal organs. When the body energy is in perfect flow, facial features are in perfect condition. When illness begins, the energy will not flow smoothly, all features on the face, shapes, colours and functions will change. Every day conditions such as a congested liver, deficient thyroid, poor digestion, stress on the adrenal glands are all visible on the face if you know what to look for.
