Feng Shui Principles
The principles of Feng Shui, (Feng Shui meaning ‘wind’ and water’), are found within the philosophy of ancient China.
Feng Shui is a strand of Chinese Medicine, based on the same Five Elements system as acupuncture. In the same way that energy flows through our bodies, so does energy also move through space and time. This means that we can apply Feng Shui principles to position and structure our living and work places to achieve maximum benefits and positively influence our health, relationships, financial rewards and spiritual peace of mind. We often refer to Urban Feng Shui as ‘acupuncture for buildings.’
A basic premise of Eastern Medicine, or acupuncture, is that the human being is made up of three equal aspects; body, mind and spirit. Like the three legs of a stool, each aspect must be balanced in order to achieve optimum health and inner happiness. When studied and applied in depth, Feng Shui becomes a journey within, that can become as much of a way to live as it is a solution for arranging our houses.
When Feng Shui principles were first developed, cities like London, with aeroplanes flying overhead, trains passing underneath and a constantly evolving landscape of buildings, were not even a distant dream of the ancient Chinese.
Urban FengShui is a contemporary application of an ancient medicine, practical and effective for the twenty first century. When prescribed correctly it creates peaceful, productive and harmonious spaces in which to live and work, anywhere in the City.
