Some may say that Feng Shui isn’t necessarily a ‘therapy’ but we at Seek A Therapy would argue that it is a form of complementary therapy. It is a complex system of ancient philosophies that’s core aim is to enhance your wellbeing inside a space (be it a home, an office, or a garden). It does this by looking to create a good flow of energy or Chi within that space. Chi, in feng shui, is referring to what they believe is the universal energy present in and around us. By altering your environment you can improve the flow of this energy and thus enhance your wellbeing and prosperity.
Before you seek a Feng Shui specialist, we at Seek a Therapy want to help answer your questions and concerns surrounding the practise in order to help you select the right practitioner for you. That is why, on this page, we have included some of the most common questions a person may have before speaking to a Geng Shui specialist.
What is Feng Shui?
It’s an ancient Chinese philosophy that helps people find balance in the way they live their lives by harmonizing their living spaces with nature through spatial design. The key is qi (pronounced “chee”), or the energy that connects all living things. Through the implementation of specific design principles that promote auspiciousness, feng shui is said to allow your energy to flow uninhibited through your home, improving your overall quality of life.
Feng Shui experts believe that to allow qi to flow effortlessly through your environment you must follow principles set out in its philosophy. For example, dictating the precise place to set your furniture (never put a bed under a window!) to what color to paint your front door. While different feng shui schools offer many variations on these principles, there are several commonalities that form the basis of the philosophy. If you watch the video above it goes into some of the principles in a basic way.
How Feng Shui can help improve your emotional health
By conducting feng shui within your environment it is believed it can have an overarching effect on your mental and emotional wellbeing. It is also believed to improve your prosperity and attract the right energy that you want into your life. The video above gives an example of how to help feng shui your home.

How Do I Know Which Practioner To Choose?
One of the most important parts of selecting any therapy is the relationship between yourself and the practitioner.
When you feel you find the right practitioner that offers you good communication, a partnership, trust, goals and a feeling of genuine understanding then together, over time, change the energy within your environment. Also, sometimes you may be able to find a practitioner with specialities is not only Feng Shui but also in terms of interior design so look into what other services they can provide you with.
How Long Does It Take To Have An Effect?
According to specialists, clients have reported seeing results in their lives within as little as 3 months! For other clients, it can take a year. Do not forget that Feng Shui is an ancient philosophy about how your environment can improve your wellbeing. Many people do report benefits but there is no scientific proof that it does work. If you choose to work with a Feng Shui expert keep in mind that you must also do other things to improve your overall wellbeing including lifestyle changes and seeking other forms of therapy.
