Applying Facial Diagnosis in the Clinic

Applied Facial Diagnosis  2 Day Workshop (Dublin : October 19th and 20th 2019)

What will be covered during the 2 days:

Overview of Face Reading and it’s importance for diagnosing and treatment. 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.

Age Map: Past, Present, and Future Health. Jing Markers and their importance for (understanding patient’s health?)

 Shen (our Spirit):  how to identify in eyes, skin, hands and other features and how this relates to treatment success and outcome.

Sides of Face: Significance of the right and left sides of the face in health.

Facial Features: Understanding the features and how they correspond to the 5 Elements and their connection to health

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.

Diet and Lifestyle: How our diet and lifestyle impacts our health and where they reflect on the face.

Readings: On the Sunday afternoon we will have some patients come for a reading so you can put into practic what you have learnt.
