Feng Shui has been called the Chinese "Art of Placement," that balances the life energies, or Qi, in a living space. Using simple "cures," it increases the flow of positive Qi and subdues the negative flow. And according to the theory of Feng Shui, harmonizing our personal Qi with the Qi in the environment puts us in harmony with the natural forces of nature and, in turn, results in a healthy, happy and prosperous life. |
The basic tenets of this philosophy are quite simple. If positive energy can flow through an environment, then the people residing there will benefit. Just as an acupuncturist or bodyworker charts the energy flow within a person's body and either stimulates points of stagnation or subdues overactive channels, Feng Shui maps the flow through our surroundings and makes adjustments -- with often startling results. When the Qi circulates properly, we experience a feeling of well-being while good health and prosperity are increased in our lives.
