A patient’s face contains valuable and specific information for diagnostic purposes, often seen before medical tests reveal the organ dysfunction. Facial diagnosis can help identify diseases early and easily. Learn how the various markings and coloration on the face show the internal physiological functioning of the organs and relevant aspects of personality. These diagnostic clues will assist in determining appropriate and more effective treatments. Feb 15-16, Sat & Sun, 8:30a.m.-5:30p.m., Lillian Bridges, BA. 15 CEUs, PDAs

Gain additional diagnostic tools that can be used immediately in your clinical practice. Develop more insight into the psychological and emotional underlay affecting health using the signs from the face.

You will learn how to: read the facial signs for the amount and usage of Jing and Qi; uncover the personal psychological and emotional underlay of disease from the Facial Map of Life Experience and the Emotional Map; evaluate the fundamental Five Element organ strength from the shape and size of the features; and recognize Shen disturbances.

In addition, you will learn to interpret and identify the markers and coloration involved in diagnosing specific diseases. Recommended treatments will be offered with illustrations from case studies.

  • List the Emotional Markings on the Face
  • Describe the meaning of the Emotional Markings on the Face
