oh hey , i haven’t written here for ages.. because i’ve been studying and playing DOWN UNDA MAYYYTEEEE!


Recently in my pursuit of knowledge and learning of “alternative medicines” or eastern medicine I began looking into Chinese Medicine having recently engulfed myself in Ayurvedic Medicine i felt it time to show my asian friends some love.

I’ve been getting regular acupuncture which is all great and good and you can research the millions of health journals which proves its effectiveness blah blah blah

but this isnt about that …

What intrigued me most in seeing chinese medicine practionors was their inate ability to tell me what physical or emotional problems I had within moments of meeting me ..

I then asked one practitioner if i could borrow some of her Chinese Medicine Textbooks (because im anal like that)  .. i needed to know the secret mind reading ninja tricks.. what it lead me to was FACE MAPPING .. i’ve posted an image of this months ago , but i never really realised what it all meant .

basically Chinese Tradition states that what happens in the body shows up on the face !


and pinpointing areas or pigmentation,acne and congestion on the face alludes to internal problems which has been backed up by Western Medicine .

for example PMS acne tends to show up on the chin – Chinese medicine also have this as a genealogical point / spleen point which controls the hormones

I personally noticed my smile lines diminishing recently (im 22 but they were definitely there) i thought it was just because i had gotten some sun but apparently this is the LUNG section .. which makes sense as i quit smoking and also I’ve noticed almost all smokers have that hideous puppet mouth the longer they smoke!

not only does it paint a picture of your physical health but also your mental health .. the chinese believe we store different emotions in different areas of the body The Liver stores Anger and Resentment and thus will show up on the corresponding areas of the face . so take a look at your mug and figure out whats possibly going on inside!

so you really can read someones face . its worth looking into and lets all draw on our faces because it is fun
