A fresh application of an ancient medicine
Feng Shui (meaning ‘wind’ and water’) is an Eastern philosophy, or a strand of Chinese Medicine, based on the same five elements system as that of 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 use Feng Shui principles to position and structure our living and work places to achieve maximum benefits and positively affect our health, relationships, financial rewards and our 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 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 homes.
When Feng Shui was first developed, cities like London, with aeroplanes flying overhead, trains passing underneath and a constantly evolving landscape of buildings, were not even a dream of the ancient Chinese. Urban Feng Shui 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.
