I just completed a short course in Applied Facial Diagnosis According to Chinese Medicine through Pacific Rim College. I decided to do this, to take an alternative approach to discovering possible imbalances in the body by looking for clues on the face. I am also challenged with some issues on my own face and wanted to see what this approach might have to say about that, and if attention to those areas might have any positive affects on my health. This is really an experiment for me, a low risk one at that, since there isn’t anything to loose in trying. I will pair this with my reflexology skills. With using this approach, I can help guide someone with reflexology methods and points on the feet, hand, ear and face. This session can be done online through Zoom and can include a variety of other healing modalities as well such as drumming, meditation, reiki, and nutritional approaches. Having also completed the course on Autoimmunity and Food Intolerance, I can make some recommendations as well on food elimination for addressing issues of inflammation. I am not a nutritionist mind you, so if you are struggling with health issues, it’s important to seek a professional first. My approach is meant to compliment other health avenues you area taking. For me, the key is to calm the body of stress and reduce inflammation and that is something we can guide with natural methods.
