Unveiling the Secrets: What Your Skin Reveals About Your Overall Health


Welcome to Touch of Joy, where I believe that true beauty starts from within. I'm Joy, your guide to holistic wellness and radiant skin. Let's explore the ancient practice of skin mapping from Chinese medicine and discover what your skin can reveal about your overall health.

In Chinese medicine, the face is considered a reflection of the body's internal balance. By examining the location of blemishes, discolorations, and other skin issues, practitioners can identify underlying imbalances and pinpoint areas of concern.

For example, dark circles around the eyes may indicate fatigue, poor circulation, or kidney issues.

Additionally, hooded eyes are often a result of tense temples and forehead muscles, particularly the frontalis and temporalis muscles.

The cheek area is often the place that shows digestive problems, with issues such as dairy, sugar, and white flour potentially contributing to blemishes and redness. These foods can disrupt gut health and manifest as imbalances in the skin.

Pimples in the neck area may be a sign of poor lymphatic drainage. The lymphatic system plays a crucial role in detoxification and immune function, and when it becomes sluggish, toxins and waste can build up, leading to skin issues like acne.

Understanding what your skin is trying to tell you is just the first step. At Touch of Joy, I specialize in holistic skincare treatments that address the root cause of skin issues and promote overall wellness.


Through personalized consultations and tailored treatment plans, we'll work together to restore balance to your skin and body. Whether it's through connective tissue massage, buccal massage, or gua sha therapy, my goal is to help you achieve glowing, radiant skin from the inside out.

But don't just take my word for it – let your skin be your guide to better health and vitality.

With love,

Joy x
