Before Rebecca became a licensed massage therapist, she was an interior designer! She graduated in 2004 with her bachelor's degree in Interior Design, and still practices on occasion, offering her services and feng shui to those seeking renovation or decorating advice.
SO, WHAT IS FENG SHUI?
Feng Shui is an intuitive art that originated in China over 3,000 years ago. It is largely based around the concept that the flow of energy, called ch'i, can be optimized based on the placement of a home, the rooms inside it, and the furnishings inside them. The ancient art prescribes lengthy and complex rules that may strike modern homeowners as quirky.
For example, your home should not be built at the end of a dead-end road. Round pillars are better than square. Ceilings should be high and well-lit. Yet even the most baffling practices have a basis in common sense. For example, feng shui principles warn that a kitchen door should not face the stove. The reason? A person working at the stove may instinctively want to glance back at the door. This creates a feeling of unease, which can lead to accidents. But whether or not you subscribe to the fundamental principles of Feng Shui or not, it is not an arguable fact that the results of Feng Shui applied properly create a sense of balance and peace.
