The origins of Palmistry

origins of Palmistry

Reading the lines of the hand has always been a human and goes back to prehistoric times where handprints were found.

It is estimated that palmistry is practiced in China for over 5000 years, and experts believe it even goes back to the Chaldeans or ancient Egypt.


This divination is born in Europe in the twelfth century and have been found treatises of Aristotle mentioning palmistry.
In the seventeenth century, it is taught in Germany but banned in England where it is equated with witchcraft.
In the nineteenth century, palmistry becomes progressively under the leadership of Captain D'Arpentigny (1789 - 1853) and Adrien Adolphe Desbarolles (1801-1886). They will lay the foundation of this art and classify types of hand.

When the subject is right handed, palmistry agrees that the lines of the left hand indicate the potential and the innate values of an individual, while the lines of the right hand indicate the using this potential and established values. When the subject is left is obviously the opposite applies.

Finally, let us not forget that the lines of the hand change throughout the life of the individual, and that the interpretation of a line at a time of life may be different at another time.
