Chinese Palmistry began more than 3000 years ago. Chinese Palm Reading became popular since Zhou Dynasty (1122 B.C.). The complete Chinese Palmistry system had been developed during Western Han Dynasty (206 B.C.). Chinese Palmistry not only analyzes palm lines and hands appearances but also applies the Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth) and I-Ching Ba-Kua theories on it to predict people fortune and personalities.
Chinese Palmistry, Hand Reading, was combined into Chinese Physiognomy, Face Reading. Chinese Physiognomy covers body reading, appearance reading, voice reading, foot reading and body movement reading. The Palmistry and Physiognomy are able to understand people's personality, character and potential. Also, they can predict people's health, marriage, wealth, career and future.
Most Chinese professional fortunetellers have Palm Reading and Facial Reading skills. Chinese Astrology and Chinese Horoscope require people birthday and time to predict people's fortune. Chinese Palmistry can do the fortunetelling without birthday. That's why many Chinese Fortunetellers know Chinese Palm Reading.
