For many centuries, practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have relied on face reading for insight into the physical, psychological, and emotional state of a patient. 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. In addition to understanding how the body's internal functions can be seen on a face, readers will also learn to evaluate non-verbal expressions and assess personality from features and markings of the patient's face.

  • Clear discussions demonstrate how this technique can be used as a supplement to other diagnostic tools in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
  • Engaging, insightful, highly readable text is written by a well-known and experienced lecturer in the field.
  • Extensive illustrations give you a clear understanding of theories and techniques.
  • A focus on the deeper aspects of face reading and diagnosis helps readers become more conscious of their actions, reactions, and the health consequences of behavior.

    Review:

    'This lovely book is clearly written by someone who has been immersed in reading faces all her life and who spent twenty years before writing it, studying further from Chinese medical and other texts and from family members. It clearly lays out all the theories and principles of face reading, mostly relating to understanding personality ( but also in a final chapter to medical diagnosis) and illustrates these with numerous black and white and colour photographs.

    This is simply the best book on face reading that we have seen, and if the subject fascinates you, you just have to get it.'

    Peter Deadman, Journal of Chinese Medicine
