"For years, many friends, students, family members, and strangers have asked me the same question: How do I maintain my youthful look and zest for life? After publishing my first book and with the help of many amazing friends, I have decided to write a book that answers this question. In About Face there are numerous natural concepts and information about staying healthy, looking young and vibrant, from various sources.
Everything you think and feel is reflected on your face. What others see on your face depends on many factors in your life including diet and nutrition, your emotions, inherited and genetic factors, your natural disposition, the state of your health, and the amount, causes and duration of stresses in your life. Beyond emotional and mental stress other contributing factors come from environmental pollutants, injury, and surgery. Your youthfulness and vitality, at any age, also has a lot to do with your attitude. You are in control of a great many contributing factors relating to your radiant health and youthfulness. If you apply even just a few of the suggestions provided in this book, you truly can be younger than your chronological age.
Reflexology always has been a large part of what I do as a bodywork therapist. The effectiveness of lymphatic drainage techniques have been an important element of my personal practice. The Meridian Body Therapy explored here has never failed to produce consistent results in improving my life and the lives of my clients. My knowledge of medicinal herbs, essential oils, Bach flower remedies, common domestically found ingredients for use in different formulas are just a few other concepts I practice and have combined in this book.
About Face is holistic in nature. It addresses all the components of health and vitality and gives you practical and easy recipes and techniques, which will add quality to your life when applied to your face and body regularly.
