  • A fascinating and unusual subject tackled in a highly readable and detailed way - giving all levels of reader the chance to take something personally useful away from the book
  • A useful adjunct to the diagnostic tools in traditional Chinese medicine - giving the practitioner an additional "tool" to make an ever more accurate diagnosis of their patient
  • Written by a lecturer and writer already known in this field - giving a uniquely authoritative and experienced voice to a subject which has been covered only a little in other texts
  • Highly illustrated - to make sure that the reader is clear in understanding what the text describes.
  • An exciting new, full-colour edition of Face Reading in Chinese Medicine featuring over 200 colour photographs and practical instructions on how to conduct a face reading!

     Face reading has been part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for many centuries, and Professor Lillian Bridges is a popular academic and international lecturer on the subject who gained her fascinating knowledge through her family line of Master Face Readers in China.

     Based on an understanding of the shapes, markings and features of a face, practitioners can learn 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, practitioners can also learn how to evaluate Shen to understand non-verbal expressions.

    Technical and detailed information is presented in an upbeat, insightful and highly readable manner. This was the first book to focus on the deeper aspects of  face reading and diagnosis, this edition includes ancient Taoist knowledge regarding the Original Face and Facial Jing and Qi markers which have previously only been taught through the oral tradition.


    Key Features
  • Clear discussions demonstrate how this technique can be used as a supplement to other diagnostic tools in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
  • Engaging, insightful, highly readable text is written by a well-known and experienced lecturer in the field.
  • Extensive illustrations give you a clear understanding of theories and techniques.
  • A focus on the deeper aspects of face reading and diagnosis helps readers become more conscious of their actions, reactions, and the health consequences of behavior.

    Published Reviews '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.'
