Traditionally, Chinese face mapping was used to diagnose potential health problems. This post from The Magic of Life highlights how face mapping, “mien shiang,” discovers what your body is fighting with.
Mien Shiang is a diagnostic tool of Chinese Medicine. It’s a 3,000-year-old Taoist practice that means face (mien)reading (shiang). In just moments, you can determine anyone’s Five Element personality type — character, behavior, even health potential — by analyzing their face. (Mien Shiang)
When one of our biggest organs – our skin starts to give certain symptoms, it could point out that also something else in our body does not function well. All of the body imbalances, for which we are often not aware of, will be shown on our face.

Here, we speak about skin imbalance – the appearance of acne, rash, skin sensitivity, inflammation, redness, but also expressed wrinkles and pigmentation.
