Hands has always been associated with one’s personal ‘business card’, but the face also shows revealing details of who you are and how you live your life. Our wellness expert firmly believes in weekly (or daily!) self-indulgence in the shape of exercise, healthy food and lots of wellness. Learn how your face reveals you and what you can do to feel better.
We’re expressing countless emotions and feelings every day through our face, and as one gets older, the face does too! It’s often referred to as a superficial reflection of the inner wellbeing and how you’re actually feeling about yourself. An old Chinese proverb says that from the day you’re born till the day you turn 25, you carry the face that your mother gave you. Hereafter you will shape your own face.
So, the face is your identity and it reveals a lot more about you than any other part of your body – both when it comes to health, the function of organs as well as inner and outer wellbeing.
A so-called ‘facial diagnosis’ has been used in China for more than 1.000 years. It goes hand in hand with the old Chinese medical traditions of traditional medicine, which is centered about the fact that imbalances in the body can be read through the face. Imbalances typically occurs if the body is exposed to unhealthy food, stress, too little intake of fluid, a bad digestion, abuse of medicine etc.
Within the tradition of Chinese medicine it’s widely known that:
The face is divided into zones, which are related to certain areas of the body or a particular organ. Take for example a woman’s hormone balance, which is closely connected to the appearance of the skin. Close to the monthly period most women suffer from skin problems – typically located on the chin or around the mouth. That’s a sign of imbalance in the hormonal glands and in most cases the abdomen. For men, skin problems can occur due to imbalance in the male hormones.
