Tools of Diagnosis

Facial Diagnosis

Health, Illness, Nutrition, Mental Wellbeing

Nothing happens inside the body that is not reflected on the outside. The face reflects the physical and mental state of its owner. In fact, the face show unequivocal signs of disease and any deficiencies often long before they manifest in the body and cause discomfort and pain. The skin also shows signs as you get older: spots, shadows, wrinkles... these signs give the wearer a distinctive profile and reveal aspects of their mental attitude, their lifestyle, and signs for future conditions. Understanding these signs can be the first step to curing disease.

Physiognomy

Personality, Abilities, Talents

The term Physiognomy derives from the Greek word ‘Physis’ meaning body and ‘Gnoma’ meaning indicator. It is the reading of a person based on their physical appearance, especially the face. This discipline of face reading is the perfect tool to understand the personality of someone. It can be further employed to identify a person's inherent talents including those hidden. 

A lot of people end up living each day frustrated, disappointed, melancholic or even aggressive because they are not living their talents. There is a disconnect between their authenticity and core ideals with how they are living their day-to-day. The face is able to show whether an individual is living life in a way that he thinks and feels make him authentic. Facial expressions and gestures are also combined in the reading as they reveal much about the individual’s emotional state.

Siang Mien

Disease & Illness, Deeper Thoughts & Intentions, Life Purpose, Destiny

This discipline from the East literally translates to face (Mien) and Reading (Shiang). In China,  the ability to read the face is treated not as art or technique, but as a science. Used since ancient times to address the wide range of human conditions, Siang Mien covers not just physical and mental conditions but also personality, character, and even the fate of a person. Fate, or destiny can mean choice, a fork in the road of your life where decisions have to be made. For Chinese face readers, a person is never a victim of their own destiny but one to give life to the body. Siang Mien can also be effective in seeing the feelings, thoughts and intentions of individuals. Looking closely, we can know a person, if they wish. The face, as they say, has always been a reflection of the human soul!

Micro-Expressions

Lie Detection, True Feelings & Thoughts, Hidden Emotions

When people try to hide their emotions, even when they repress them subconsciously, a very quick facial expression occurs that is almost invisible to the naked eye. Being able to see these micro-expressions allows us to detect deception and lies, to calm a person or even say the appropriate words in the right moment. Despite efforts made to hide any sign of true emotion, it is possible to catch a fragment of an expression that's easily recognizable to the trained eye. These split-second changes of the face also occur even when an emotion is just starting to enter the conscience. Due to the visual differences of human beings, not all people reach the same level of ability to detect these micro- facial expressions. This knowledge has numerous applications.

Body Language

The Little Brother of Face Reading

Face Reading is the ultimate tool for seeing and understanding more about yourself and others however, it does have a “little brother” that's more well known - Body Language. This important aspect of non-verbal communication consists of body posture and gestures, and can often communicate what we really mean even as we speak differently.

Noticing the signals that people send out with their body language is a very useful social skill, and complements the knowledge of facial expressions and eye movements. If you want to know what lies behind another's movements or wish to communicate and connect well with others, learning the language of the body is a useful skill that everyone can learn. After all, actions are louder than words.

History of Face Reading

Greece / 460 BC ~

Evidence shows other civilizations used face reading techniques such as Hippocrates of Cos of Greece who wrote an extensive treatise on observations of the face of the dying and dead. The Greeks were more interested in understanding the personality of a person. Only a part of this knowledge remains today.

China / 2,000 BC ~

Considered the doctors and advisors of their time, Master Face Readers used their techniques to recognize deficiencies and diseases as well as analyze the personality, character, life purpose and destiny of an individual. These masters of Siang Mien were hired by nobility to give them a competitive edge in retaining power and to guide them in achieving their life goals. The knowledge was guarded closely amongst the inner circle and not documented until later in Face Reading history. 

Europe / 1400 ~ 1900

Swiss physician Philippus Bombastus von Hohenheim (1493-1541), later known as Paracelsus, develops a new branch of medicine based on his conclusion that the condition of the body within, produces visible signs that show themselves on the outside of the body. He also discusses how a person’s appearance directly relates to their mental condition.

Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler (1821-1898) develops a novel therapy for the treatment of many diseases based on cataloguing the different skin colors that appear in specific areas of the face. The skin color and area can indicate deficiencies of specific minerals in the body, which could then be tied to diseases that are associated with that deficiency.
