Palmistry 2010 re-defined: ‘What is palm reading today?’

Modern palmistry (hand analysis or chirology) is not about predicting the future of individuals, it’s about the life of indvidual (specified to issues related to: psychology, personality & temperament).

Chirologist Gaël Demeaux


Gaël Demeaux is a student of Gerard Aussoleil, and is trained in handwriting analysis and chirology (chirologie), based on a psychological evaluation to facilitate a better understanding of the hand and exploit its potential.

On his webpage Gaël Demeaux describes modern chirology as follows (in French language):

“Based on a careful observation of the morphology of the hand, supported by psychological theories, the modern chirologie developed by Gérard Aussoleil differs markedly from any science divination. It is through a methodical angle that the hand becomes a support to interpret the psychology of a person.
The hand is raised in its relationship with the biological brain (scissure of Rolando). Due to its form and composition, it is seen as an image influences of the nervous system and endocrine essential components that structure the psychology of humans. The couple hand / brain is then seen as the couple main / personality. For some psychologists the chirologie can be a valuable investigative tool that helps to understand the springs that animate the psyche.”

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’).

    Hand Analysis

    Beth Davis writes on her website www.handanalyst.com about Hand Analysis:

    What is Hand Analysis?

  • Palmistry as a form of divination emerged in India over 5,000 years ago
  • Hand analysis is a combination of ancient palmistry, the latest scientific data and current advances in human psychology and philosophy
  • Hand analysis is NOT predictive (I can’t tell you how many children you’re going to have or when you’re going to meet that tall, dark stranger.)
  • Hand analysis is a repeatable system, based upon thousands of hands studied
  • Hand analysis can be learned, like learning to read or play a musical instrument
  • Hand analysis does not require psychic ability”
