Feng Shui (or Wind and Water) was developed in China approximately 6,000 years ago.
Since everything in our environment has a life force or energy called “Chi”, it makes sense and is important to balance your environment so that energy or Chi flows smoothly through all of it. Properly applied Feng Shui helps to balance the energy flow in our environments, allowing us to take advantage of energetic, healthy and prosperous places around us.
This is accomplished by balancing the elements and unseen energy in your life and environment.
