    Chapter 1: Reading Faces From Ancient China
    Siang Mien / Reading Faces
    Humanity as we know it has persisted for over five thousand years. Within this time period, social customs and habits appear to have contained a continuum of the precepts of the golden rule, the differentiation between that which is morally right and wrong. Upon reading carefully the Western Bible, the works of Confucius, and the Tao Te Ching, one cannot help but to find many similarities. Humanity, in spite of its cruel history, does know the differences between right and wrong, just as between health and disease. And from this, we start our journey on reading faces and how to improve the life of our fellow humans. -
  • The skin is one of the largest organs of the body and can easily be looked upon as a BIOLOGIC TOUCH SCREEN™. Growth of the organism begins embryonically from three, germinal layers from which all cells of our body arise: ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm. The body from birth is an interconnected matrix from differentiated growth of these three interconnected layers. The epidermis of ectodermal origin from the embryo, which is the same for the nervous system, represents a screen at a level where environmental stimuli are received and transmitted by somatic nervous pathways of the cerebral cortex. The dermis represents a screen at which there are areas of autonomic nerve concentration having spatial projection and connection with internal organs. All three layers are linked together by the body 's fascia, one of the most ignored and underestimated connective tissue as well as a repositories for toxins.
    Chinese acupuncture is one ancient system that mapped the relations from the skin zones and functional relation with internal organs. Other cultures also found these rudimentary connections. But it was not until the 1890s Sir Henry Head discovered certain areas of the skin that develop tenderness, spot on, in the course of visceral disease. These areas were later termed 'Head zones ' and would become known as part of the phenomenon of referred pain. He discovered the existence of specific points within these zones, that he called 'maximum points ', a finding that is all but forgotten today. It is relevant that two important groups of acupuncture points, the diagnostic Front-Mu and Back-Shu organ points, spatially and functionally coincide with these same maximum points to a large extent. -
    In 1875 Dr. Weihe introduced the method of "painful" pressure points of homeopathic correspondence. This implies that when a homoeopathic remedy is indicated, its corresponding Weihe point produces an acute pain when pressed. When the remedy is administered, soon thereafter the tenderness vanishes as the patient improves. In the words of one author, this "set the homeopathic world on fire. "-
    In the early 1900s, Dr. Frank Chapman, an American Osteopath, found that there were specific points on the body that when stimulated had a positive effect on many kinds of health conditions. He believed that these points excited sympathetic nerve fibers that can cause specific lymph vessels to increase or decrease and return to their function. He correlated these reflexes with specific organs and illnesses and called them Chapman 's Reflexes. Treatment was by digital pressure (pressure point healing). -
    One of the medical doctors of the early 1900s, who studied and practiced massage therapeutics as a medical discipline was Arnold Snow, M.D. He wrote two most decisive medical textbooks and maintained a large practice in New York City. Dr. Snow mapped out the extensive neurological connections between the skin, muscles and vertebrae, and their connection to the internal organs.
    Dr. Snow 's colleague, William Fitzgerald, M.D., in1917 debuted his book, Zone Therapy, where he postulated the theory of 10 wide vertical zones running the entire length of the body, every part of the body being in one or more of the zones. He is frequently called the father of reflexology and what is known today as Zone Therapy.
    The basis of palpation as a means of detection of irritation and inflammation is the dynamics of the active points by which they can increase or decrease the functional state of internal organs. In this conception the disturbance of an internal organ is projected upon the body 's surface by autonomic nerves, modifying receptor function, and becoming more sensitive if not sore. Concomitantly, it becomes a repository for focal toxins and metabolic acid salts. If they get out of hand, they develop into spongioform knots and even various tophi like ganglions, cysts, spurs, and so on. One is reminded of striking the cyst with a heavy object, the old-fashioned "Bible method " was used to smash the ganglion cyst. (This type of cyst was often called the Bible cyst (or "Bible Bumps") for this reason.)
    The old Chinese method of needling the painful points for relief of symptoms would one day be recognized as a valid, scientific method, as the metallic needle exerts and electric action. Science also observse that these points are more electro-reactive. The acupuncture points are often more sensitive than surrounding tissue.
    Taken by extension, we know from homeopathic medicine and Dr. Weihe 's discovery that toxins, poisons, allergens and drugs also project irritations at discrete sensitive points, and by palpation we can detect food allergies, heavy metal poisons, and other toxic irritations.
    Most all conditions can be helped by Pressure Point Healing. For massage therapists and body workers, as a pre-treatment you will find it a wonderful adjunct. For homeopaths, nutritionists, and herbalists, by incorporating this as a short treatment for revitalization therapy, it will greatly augment your prescriptive practices. For body therapists, this will greatly facilitate your rejuvenation practices including facial wrinkle reduction, lymphatic drainage, and weight loss.
    By contacting any center on the head, face or body which is painful, you immediately begin helping that organ or tissue. It is a question of counter-irritation, one of nature 's oldest and most direct healing methods. No drugs or medications are needed, for the body heals itself.
    This book is an exciting culmination of more than thirty years research by the author. For the body therapist, it is an exciting journey, evolving into a genuine understanding that sensitive points do not occur randomly and reveal rather significant understanding of our body 's functions.
