The face has been proven through modern research, especially by Dr. Stephen Porges and his Polyvagal Theory, to be central to our co-regulation, self-regulation and sense of safety. And now the face has become even more of a central focus, because of so much time spent on Zoom with clients, friends and families, and even in person – with or without masks.

When the flow of qi or energy from your heart to your face gets blocked, because of heart break, emotional or physical abuse, or other kinds of trauma (including birth trauma), the Shen, which is the spirit of the heart in Oriental Medicine, cannot rise into your face, and your face and eyes lack expressivity, luster and sparkle.
