Tongue and face diagnosis guide

Before your first treatment, it’s important to take pictures of your tongue and face. These images offer valuable insights into your overall health and enable me to customise the treatment according to your specific needs. Please refer to the guide provided below before submitting your pictures on the initial consultation form.

Don’t worry about how you look while taking these pictures! They may not be flattering and might even make you feel self-conscious and a bit silly. However, having analysed countless tongues over the years (including my own!), what matters most is assessing your overall health.

Guide to taking pictures of your tongue and face:

Step 1

Use a smart phone and make sure the flash is set to on.

Step 2

Stand in front of a mirror with good light.
Hold the phone so that the screen faces the mirror and the camera towards you.
Adjust so your nose and mouth are in the viewer.

Step 3

Stick out the tongue naturally relaxed.
Do not force, extend or curl your tongue.
To focus the camera, touch the screen over your tongue.
Take a picture.

Step 4

Ensure that the camera flashed.
Check the photo by zooming in.
The image should be in focus, clear, crisp with no blurriness or shadows.

Step 5

Follow the same steps, but place your tongue to the roof of your mouth behind your teeth.

Step 6

Take one picture of your whole face, preferably without any makeup and in daylight for the face diagnosis.

Step 7

You can either submit your pictures on the initial consultation form or WhatsApp them to me.
