Human beings are desirous by their nature. In order to provide us assurance of happening that will result in our benefits; we often rely on strange and illogical practices. Sports fans do not change their socks when their favourite team is on a hot streak and you will never hear the drama geeks saying ‘Macbeth’ in theatres.
Almost all cultures in the world hold some or the other practices of these kind. For the sake of luck, fate or wacko superstition, people keep up with these curious practices. A new medical procedure has gained popularity recently. The mystical practice of palm reading has started colliding with the real practice of plastic surgery in the Land of the Rising Sun. Here is introducing you to Palmistry.
The supernatural art of divining someone’s future from hundreds of lines on our palms is all about palmistry. The positions and lengths of these palm lines dictate everything from your marriage to handling money to achieving fame and fortune in the future.
This practice has been used by psychics around the world and it is immensely popular in Japan. The extent of its popularity can be clearly seen from the growing number of Japanese permanently altering their palm lines in the hope of bringing good fortune.
The procedure costs around $1,000. Popular surgeries include strengthening the patient’s fate line which determines a person’s ability to earn and manage money. There is also a procedure to adjust the position of wedding lines. This indicates the ideal stage of marriage. Many men also look forward to an addition of emperor’s line. This occurs when the also sought after fate, financial lines and money luck intersect at the right spot.
Doctors use an electric scalpel that simultaneously cuts and burns the skin to leave semi-permanent and natural looking scars. The process takes only 10 to 15 minutes.
Takaaki Matsuoka is a plastic surgeon. He has performed many surgeries like these. He actually attributes the success to the change in mindset of the believers.
“If people think they’ll be lucky, sometimes they become lucky. And it’s not like the palm lines are really written in stone?—?they’re basically wrinkles. They do change with time. Even the way you use your hands can change the lines. Some palmisters will even suggest that their clients draw the lines on their hands to change their luck. And this was before palm plastic surgery existed. However, anecdotally I’ve had some success.”
One female patient got her wedding line adjusted and she got married shortly after the surgery. She is a true believer of this surgery and gives the credit of her marriage to it. But the doctors say it’s only a matter of determination that changes your fate.
If you also feel to try a little luck in making alterations to your fate, try the old standbys like tossing a coin in the fountain or wishing on a star. And if you have some cash, you might improve your palmistry lines as well. Who knows? Maybe it works.
