If facial color is black, it means kidneys has some functional problem(s).
If the kidneys have problem, the body usually is cold. Kidney problems manifest on bones. If there is bone problem, we treat kidney to fix bone problems.
If the kidneys are weak, the person is easily shown fear. If a person’s emotion is fear, can treat kidney to ride off fear. We can use Chui to do kidney detoxification and/or nourish the kidney.
