IS USED TO DESIGN SPACES THAT BRING BALANCE, COMFORT AND HARMONY TO OUR LIVES
Feng Shui is a term composed of two Chinese words:
FENG (wind) and SHUI (water)
WIND (Air) is the breath of life and WATER is the liquid of life. Wind and water are the two natural elements that flow, move, and circulate everywhere on Earth. They are also the most basic elements required for human survival.
These two fundamental and flowing elements have always profoundly yet subtly, influenced human individuals and societies.
Energy known as Chi or Qi
rides and spreads with the wind
but is harnessed and retained when encountering water.
Feng Shui is often referred to as the art of placement. You as well as your surroundings, your home, your furniture and your possessions, are all interwoven through a universal energy.
Just as you would tune a guitar or a piano so that they could perform at their very best, you need to do the same within the places you live and work.
Referred to as a metaphysical science, Feng Shui involves calculating the life energy of an environment and harnessing it for potential benefit.
A Feng Shui consultant assists in balancing the environment in which we live by preventing good energy from being dispersed by the wind and ensuring it is harnessed by water.

and in the cycles of our tides and our 4 seasons.
Feng Shui sees all things and all creatures as part of a natural order, an environment that is equally alive, in flux, ever moving and ever changing. All plants, animals, people, and things exist in a vast landscape that swirls with vital energy and each one has it's own energetic value.
We know that a balanced diet is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Although we know this to be true, we are unaware of the internal process happening within our bodies, every second of every day.
Just as we are unable to see this process within our bodies, the "unseen" energies or the "chi" of the environment and the universe, affect us as human beings whether we are aware of them or not.
THE BEST ANALOGY TO DESCRIBE HOW THIS THIS AFFECTS US, IS TO RELATE THIS TO HOW OUR BODIES WORK:
