Face reading has been used for millennia in both
the Eastern and Western civilizations. In the Western
world it is called physiognomy while in China it is known as
xiàng shù 相术 (also: xiàng miàn 相面, kàn xiàng 看相), and in Japan as ninsō-uranai 人相卜.
Aristotle, Hippocrates, Galen and Chaucer all studied and wrote about physiognomy. In China, face reading has a long association with medicine. Skilled specialist practitioners diagnose illnesses from careful observation of the face.
