“Black In The Face” is a term used to describe the energy distribution visible in the face of a human being. The ideal human face should have an even distribution of energy across it’s entire surface. An even distribution of energy across the face would be associated with both good health and a balanced body.
Very generally, there are two causes that will produce the darkening of the face that is called “Black In The Face”. Any type of permanent or temporary health problem will cause a darkening of the face, and both temporary or permanent tightening of the head and body will cause a darkening of the face. The part of the face that becomes dark is directly related to the health problem affecting the individual, or directly related to the part of the head and body that has become tight.
The example picture for this blog entry is shown next.
This individual has Black In The Face on the right side of his face. The line in the next picture highlights the boundary between the light side of the face and the right side Black In The Face.
This example of Black In The Face is due to both temporary and permanent constriction of the body. Although it is blurry, the man is pointing his right hand at the camera.
In order to point his right hand at the camera the man would have to temporarily tighten and constrict his right arm. Further corroboration that the right side of his body is temporarily contracted is the leaning of his entire body to his right.
The man’s body is leaning to his right because the contraction of the right side of the body pulls the rest of the body towards it.
