Like the patina and wear on something touched often, or the way shoes and fabric carries the memory of the wearer. Our life and spirit shows its presence on our face. To read the face is to delve into the intricacies of the being woven into the lines, curves, and expressions of the human face.

The face reflects the depth of our being. It’s an invitation into a world of untold stories, capacities and potential. Sparse eyebrows speak of emotional strain, the fullness of your lips reveals the ability to express emotions, and the ear lobes indicate prosperity. Perhaps the tales told by face could help foster greater understanding and healing for those seeking vitality and wellbeing.

In this conversation with Juli Kramer, we delve into the art of face reading and how it can serve as a valuable tool in our work. We explore the parallels between psychology and face reading—with Juli sharing some practical tips on how to decipher the narratives etched within the lines and curves of the face. We also look at the state of mental health among young people today, and why a rethinking of our attitude and healing approaches may be necessary.

Listen into this discussion on using the lens of face reading to guide and enhance clinical conversations.

In This Conversation We Discuss:

  • Blending face reading and psychology as tools for self-discovery
  • The issue with wearing mental health diagnoses as badges of honor
  • Questioning approaches to young people’s mental health
  • How to not worry about a world on fire
  • The psychology of totalitarianism and the need to find healthy ways to create meaning and connection
  • Using face reading to unlock the mysteries of the mind
  • A glimpse into the language of face reading (ear lobes, eyebrows, lips, etc.) and its clinical application

A traditional Chinese proverb states that “Where there is movement, there is no pain,” including emotional pain. In regards to face reading, when you learn the story your face tells, you have a starting point from which to move the emotions and release the pain.

Hi! My name is Dr. Juli Kramer.

Chinese medicine was not something I set out to practice from a young age. In fact, I discovered its incredible healing and wellness benefits later in life when I needed them most. Since Chinese medicine changed my life, I went on to learn as much as possible to bring this healing power to others. I am a certified qigong, meditation, and TCM beauty secrets instructor. I also hold a diploma in Chinese Medicine Nutritional Therapy and multiple certificates in Chinese medicine and face reading.

My earlier experiences, including a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Counseling Psychology, help me use these tools most effectively to change people’s lives.

Shop Talk with Ross Rosen
The importance of assessing Rate on Exertion
with Shen-Hammer Pulse Diagnosis


Pulse diagnosis can be scary for lots of practitioners; not everyone has been fortunate enough to spend years deep diving into the intricacies and subtleties, and often practitioners don't even spend much time checking pulse at all.  In this ShopTalk episode, I detail one of the most important assessments on the pulse, explain its significance, and detail how to do it.  And it is EASY and QUICK to perform. 

 If you treat pain, emotional issues like depression/anxiety/panic, or complaints like insomnia, dizziness/vertigo, or specialize in internal medicine conditions like chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, POTS, and autoimmune disorders, you will find this assessment super valuable.  

You can also visit this link  to see a demonstration of me performing it.
