Facial diagnosis is a naturopathic tool that enables your practitioner and you to devise your unique way to health and anti-ageing
Facial Diagnosis is something we subconsciously perform every time we engage into a communication with someone “You look all gaunt, what’s up – are you trying to do too much?” You look really well – your eyes are shining, your skin feels so soft….”,You’ve been working late again – you look all drawn in and tired. You definitely need some rest!” Treatment lasts 2×30 minutes.
Facial Diagnosis is an investigative naturopathic consultation. It is not a “diagnosis” in the modern clinical sense of this word. It is a way of showing you how your genetic predispositions, your upbringing, lifestyle and choices, stress levels, and nutrition have made you who you are today and the way you look today. It can give you ideas of what you need to change to achieve a higher level of vitality and health. It goes beyond skin analysis, to connect all systems of your body with the features on your face.
Your visit to a Facial Diagnosis consultant will mainly consist of a conversation during which the consultant will also observe your face and make notes and sometimes draw diagrams. You may be asked questions about your lifestyle, levels of physical activity, or whether you have had any accidents, surgeries and diseases, as well as whether you suffer from any phobias or food intolerances. The therapist may inquire about your sleep patterns, stress levels, how you respond to stress, whether your bowel habits are regular and so on. The therapist may gently touch your face from time to time, to assess whether there is puffiness, may be look at you through a small magnifying glass to see better small wrinkles on the skin and so on. Afterwards the therapist will advise you of the findings and recommend simple steps that will help you achieve better health. You will take home a summary sheet, containing the recommendations.
Virtually anyone who is interested in their own health would definitely benefit from this consultation. This is what our clients say: “I was given a gift voucher for a Facial Diagnosis session. Although I did not have a clue about what I was going to have done, I came out amazed at what the therapists told me about my insides. I had never met them before so they knew nothing about me and went into great detail about my adrenal glands and the fact that I never shut down and rest, my digestive system and not to mention my sleep deprivation. These were just a few of the things they mentioned, but they were so precise that I really couldn’t’t believe it, they gave me some advice on what I could do to help myself and I came away thinking about how I was going to make some changes to my life to improve my body. I can’t wait to have another one done once I’ve introduced those changes into my life to see if I can make a difference to my body and its functioning.”
It all depends on what happens during the first consultation. For some conditions, like skin eruptions, eczema, psoriasis, or for the digestive conditions or respiratory weaknesses the therapist may recommend massage, lymph drainage, nutritional adjustments, acupuncture, colon hydrotherapy or exercise, among other things. At least a few months of implementing these changes are needed. Then come to see your consultant again, and see what has changed, and whether there is more room for improvement.
The therapist can identify strengths and weaknesses in your systems – respiratory, digestive, excretory, endocrine or reproductive. If you have concerns about any of those you will need to see a medical practitioner, who would be able to take tests and establish a medical diagnosis. For example, if the therapist has identified weaknesses in the small intestine, and you suffer from unexplained symptoms – heaviness after a meal, reflux, nausea, then you should really put two and two together and see a gastroenterologist. On the other hand, you should also listen to your therapist’s suggestions about the possible connection between your symptoms and your diet or stress levels, and implement the lifestyle changes that the therapist may recommend.
