Psychodiagnostic chirology is a milestone in the history of modern hand reading!

Psychodiagnostic chirology is a milestone in the history of modern hand reading!

What is psychodiagnostic chirology?

Founder Arnold Holtzman from Yehud (Israel) describes this advanced system of hand analysis as : ‘The Science of Handreading in Psychological Diagnosis’.

In 1983 Holtzman presented his first book ‘Applied Handreading’, and in 2004 he presented his masterpiece: ‘The Illustrated Textbook of Psychodiagnostic Chirology in Analysis and Therapy’.

Psychodiagnostich Chirology (PDC) is described by Holtzman in his second book as follows:

“From its somewhat esoteric origins in the medical-genetic science of dermatoglyphics, Psychodiagnostic Chirology (PDC) has evolved to become one of the most powerful and dramatic tools available to professional therapists in the behavioral sciences today.”

Interestingly, Holtzman has positioned PDC in line with the theoretical conceptualizations and clinical orientation described by various famous 20th century figures in the history of modern psychology, like for example: Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) and Abraham Maslow (1908-1970).

The picture below describes the theoretic framework which is described in PDC of the human hand. The model includes two polar dimensions which are very related to the Psychoanalysis described by Freud (‘CONSCIOUS vs. SUBCONSCIOUS’ and ‘MIND vs. BODY’).

Palmist Johan Hjelmborg is practicing Astro-Palmistry in Roskilde. He writes on his website about astro-palmistry:

“THE HAND – A LIVING HOROSCOPE”

“… Hand reading and astrology have much in common and some cultures even as “the same” seen. I.e. narrates one an Indian, that astrologer, it is immediately opposite stretch his hands and a “prediction” ask.

An important common denominator between the two are the common names. Because the finger, the lines and the various rooms of the planet palm bear names, like “Saturn’s finger,” “Mercury line,” “Venusberg” etc. But there are of course crucial differences. The knowledge of the astrological predictions laws to allow collective level, such as Earthquakes or movements on the stock exchange – which is completely outside the possibilities of a hand-held reader is located. However tell the constitution and hands over psyche as well as on Earth and very specific circumstances of the individual, ie facts on which the astrologer maximum implicitly, can describe – unless his intuition comes to help him…”

Palmistry reading by Pat F.

Palmist Pat F. is practicing palmistry in Singapore. Pat writes on her website Palmistryworld.com:

“WHAT IS CHEIROMANCY?”

… Cheiromancy (Kee-roh-man-see) is the art of foretelling a person’s likely future by knowing his/her character from reading the palm lines in their hands. The name is derived from the Greek cheir for “hand”, and manteia for “divination”.

Cheiromancy is the old name for palmistry or palm reading, and is still in use today. It is at times spelt as Chiromancy or Kiromancy. It is also referred to as Cheirology, Chirology, or Kirology. However, Cheirology really is the study of the lines of the palm, without any divination involved.

Chirognomy and Chirosophy are related subjects – the former is the study of the shapes and bumps of the fingers and hands, and the latter is the study of the philosophical and esoteric aspects of palmistry.”

Jen Hirsch's website

Jen Hirsch writes about cheirology (hand reading) on her website about ‘5 Element Cheirology’:

“Cheirology is an evolved form of Palmistry”

“I promote the craft as an authentic healing therapy. Handreading is not to be equated with Palmistry, gypsies, caravans, crystal balls and fortune-telling, and should no longer carry the associated reputation of charlatanism and fakery.

Growing numbers of medical doctors worldwide are studying Cheirology to substantiate physical, emotional and mental diagnosis. With many forms of alternative medicine emerging, this modality is making inroads into mainstream thinking.

Expertise in identifying and encoding the meanings in the markings of the hand is developed by studying a five element system, which forms Cheirology’s interpretative language. Earth, water, fire and air each have a variety of associated principles.”

Kenneth Lagerström writes on his website www.humanhand.com more about his background and professional services:

“My father has no hands, which as a young child I believed to be perfectly normal and natural. I was eight years old when the school librarian was given the arduous task of proving to me that my own hands wouldn’t fall off one day. Her efforts began a life-long study into the wonders of Cheirology. Over the years the search has taken me on a bizarre journey through topics with only the hands in common: Palmistry, Chirokinesics, meditation hand positions, Laying of Hands, slight-of-hand, Burning Palm, Iron Palm, reflexology…. the list goes on and on. (I used to be a member of MENSA CANADA, which explains a lot.)

In 2001 I received the “Year of the Volunteers” certificate from the Government of Canada for outstanding service and contribution.

In 2002 I became the first British Columbia Representative for 18 Daoist Palms system of internal kung fu, and was later named as the first “International Lohon”.

Ever since my daughter was born in 2003, I’ve had the privilege of being a “stay-at-home-dad” while continuing my study of the hands. I take care of all the website maintenance myself (content writing, webmastering, etc.) for both sites.

I am also a current member of the International Society for Gesture Studies (ISGS).”
