Facial Self-Care Workshop: Facial Reading & Gua Sha -Learn Eastern Healthy Ageing Techniques

“…wrinkles could signal health trouble” warns The Times health editor on 27th August,
but don’t worry, prevention is better than cure!

This article refers to findings by French researchers which links wrinkled foreheads to heart disease. Observation of facial lines and wrinkles is integral to Chinese medicine diagnosis. Chinese face reading is a very ancient Chinese art and was especially important in the treatment of women, as the predominantly male doctors were not allowed to palpate them. Looking at the face was the easiest way of diagnosing any health issues (The Clinical Application of Facial Diagnosis, JCM, 100, October 2012).

As a traditional Chinese Acupuncturist I examine my patient’s faces as one way to diagnose any underlying disharmony. You too can observe your own face for any early warning signs of health issues, which, if detected soon enough, may be addressed through lifestyle changes to avoid illness.


I shall be introducing you to a few obvious lines and wrinkles mentioned in ancient Chinese texts and what they indicate in my Facial Self-Care Workshop: Facial Reading & Gua Sha – Eastern Healthy Aging Techniques on Sunday 13th January 2019- visit Event here.  You will examine your face and interpret what your wrinkles say about your inner health and emotions.
