BRIEF HISTORY OF FACE READING

Face reading has been around for a long, long time.  In fact, the systematic art of face reading originated thousands of years ago in ancient China and was originally used for by medical professionals for purpose of diagnosing health and to predict the onset of illness.  Reading the face in this way was known as facial diagnosis, and is still used as a valuable diagnostic tool today.  After time it was  discovered that one?s outward appearance also revealed clues to his or her inner nature.  Reading faces to understand an individual?s character and fortune began.
	Faces were read by compassionate, well-educated men who combined the roles of counselor, shaman, and astrologer.  Face reading became popular throughout China, spread to nearby Japan, India, and Korea and found its way to the Greek and Egyptian cultures as well.  Both Hippocrates and Aristotle found face reading useful.

The intention of his works was to promote brotherly love and understanding of one another through face reading. He received international attention and achieved unsurpassed fame, and at the time of his death was one of the most celebrated individuals in Europe.
