The Chinese tradition of feng shui and its Japanese equivalent kaso involve specialists who are called upon to design or redesign habitable structures in ways that will promote harmony and balance. Corporations in the West have recently discovered the tradition and increasingly employ feng shui consultants to create more psychologically friendly office spaces and reception areas.
When you walk into a space of any kind, your body receives thousands of unconscious signals, making you feel comfortable or uncomfortable. You might say something like, “This place has a nice feel” or a “conducive spirit.”
The practitioner would say you are expressing exactly what feng shui is all about. The analogy of wind and water is often used. An obstruction causes both to change their movement and break their natural motion.
The sense of flow and natural movement was originally attributed to spirits. Furniture or architecture would obstruct spiritual entities, causing blockage and a feeling of tenseness or anxiety. But consultants now try to explain the feng shui concept in terms of Health, Wealth, Happiness and Fulfilment. And are succeeding with this approach. Office buildings and hospitals report increased efficiency and profitability when people sense the calmness of a strategically placed water garden or sculpture. Clients feel more at ease after a simple rearranging of furniture. Workers take fewer sick days. Peaceful surroundings promote wa, camaraderie between employees and company, and a peaceful home and family life when fengshui is practised in the home and garden.
Stripped of what we westerners might call the “smoke and mirrors” of Eastern spirituality, feng shui has been shown to improve the bottom line. It thus becomes yet another example of Eastern wisdom that, in terms of Western sensibilities, was way ahead of its time, a concept that was widely misunderstood in the West until it could be explained in a new context.
Feng shui for health is one of the first steps to consider when looking to apply feng shui in your home and garden. No matter if your health is slightly out of balance, or you have been going through health complications for a while now, feng shui can help increase your energy levels and stay healthy.

The design of a home’s garden can also improve all aspects of a homeowner’s life. The process begins with reviewing the different principles associated with Feng Shui. We Start by reviewing the path chi takes. Chi involves the flow of positive energy.
We Start by counteracting aspects of negative or bad chi in your garden.
It’s also important that we include all of the elements of Feng Shui — earth, fire, metal, wood and water — and a garden is the perfect location for these elements. This is because each of these can easily be represented in a garden setting:
The earth can be represented with stones, both those that are used for pathways and walkways, along with those used as decoration
Water can be included with a water garden or fountain
A metal bench, statue or ornament can bring metal to the area
Fire can be achieved with the red colors of plants and flower, along with ornaments and lighting
Wood is natural through the presence of plants, trees and shrubs
Allow Feng Shui to flow properly in your garden and you can expect an area that not only peaceful and relaxing, but also that will battle negative elements while promoting those that are positive.
A healing garden is a vague term , but its purpose is to support generalized healing by helping people to become aware of there health, well, and whole. A meditation garden is likely to encourage inwardly focused attention for the purpose of deepening personal knowledge and attaining peace with oneself. A contemplation garden provides an ambience conducive to examining issues beyond and/or larger than oneself in a thoughtful, deliberate, perhaps spiritual or mystical way. When creating any of the above garden types, a designer’s intention is to present elements that serve as catalysts, inspiring individuals to reach further out and thus get closer to their individual goals.
