What does your face tells you about your health?
As yellow color in eyes, sometimes indicates problems in liver; many of our body parts can relate to problems in other parts.
The Chinese understood this thing since ancient times and believed that the organs of our body are interconnected. And they also believed that when something happens to one part of the body, the body as a whole should be treated and not the part alone.
This technique is called the Chinese face mapping technique or the Mien Shiang.
1 What is Chinese Face Mapping technique?
The Chinese Face mapping technique or the Mien Shiang translates to reading the face. When one of our largest organs, the skin starts to show signs of something happening to it, it indicates that some part of our body is not functioning properly and needs treatment.
This sort of imbalance shows its sign on our face and we may not be aware of what’s wrong with us.
Chinese medicine says that each part of our face represents an organ of our body. If something gets affected inside us, it tends to show on our face. Examples of such ailments are acne, rashes, pigmentation and wrinkles.
