- The Hand Lines in Palmistry & Science -

LEARN TO RECOGNIZE & UNDERSTAND THE MOST IMPORTANT LINES IN THE PALM OF YOUR HANDS!





The names of the hand lines according
palmistry & medical science!

While the 'primary palmar lines' are quite well-known, a proper understanding of the other lines is often helpfull to recognize the most significant characteristics of the palmar creases.

R.S. Bali (1994, p.58) wrote:

"On the basis of crease and crease form it is possible to assort primary crease from secondary and tertiary type. Primary creases are embryonic in nature and are pre-ordained in their shape and position on palm or sole. Primary crease has a distinct base, terminal end and a core. The core of a primary crease determines its dominance and primary characteristics."

This sort of impicates that for practical purposes primary creases can be recognized by dominance in anatomical structure (featured by: length, width and deepness).

Below follows an overview of five categories of palmar lines - listed by order of occurence (during embryonal life) and relative importance:

• 1 - the three 'primary palmar creases' (life line, heart line & head line);
• 2 - three 'finger creases';
• 3 - four 'secondary creases';
• 4 - four 'tertiary creases';
• 5 - all other lines are 'accessory creases'.

The picture displays for each line the most common palmar location, and the table describes common used names - according palmistry & medical science.

NOTICE: The 'primary palmar creases' starts developing in the 2nd month (life line + heart line) and 3th month (head line) in the fetal hand; the 'middle finger crease' starts developing in the 5th month. All other creases follow much later. Only the 'primary palmar creases' display permanent characteristic after birth - all other lines may show signficant fluctuations during a lifetime (they can appear and/or completely disappear). The section palmar crease embryology presents more details.

After getting familiar with the basic principles of all common palmar lines, one can start to identify the formation pattern of the 'primary palmar lines' according the 'PIC-model'! ...more.
