View all copies of this ISBN edition:

For many centuries, face reading has provided an insightful aspect of traditional Chinese medicine. Based on an understanding of the shapes, markings and features of a face, a therapist can learn more about the health and life of a patient, relating to the principles of Chinese medicine. In addition to understanding how the body's internal functions - physical, psychological and emotional - can be seen on a face, readers will also learn to evaluate non-verbal expressions and assess personality from the features and markings.

Technical and detailed information is presented in an upbeat, insightful and highly readable manner. This is the first book to focus on the deeper aspects of the face reading and diagnosis, and as such to make therapists and patients more conscious of their actions, reactions and the consequences of their behaviour relating to health.

'This lovely book is clearly written by someone who has been immersed in reading faces all her life and who spent twenty years before writing it, studying further from Chinese medical and other texts and from family members. It clearly lays out all the theories and principles of face reading, mostly relating to understanding personality ( but also in a final chapter to medical diagnosis) and illustrates these with numerous black and white and colour photographs.

This is simply the best book on face reading that we have seen, and if the subject fascinates you, you just have to get it.'

Peter Deadman, Journal of Chinese Medicine
