Feng Shui is an 8, 000 year-old Chinese philosophy about the relationship between humans and their environment. Every item in a space is thought to either enhance or diminish our well-being. Based on the laws of nature, logic and common sense, we have incorporated feng shui principles into the Acupuncture Associates office.
For example, in feng shui, mirrors are thought to reflect (double) or deflect (transfer) energy in a space. A mirror can increase the positive energy of something reflected in it. In this Acupuncture Associates treatment room, notice that we have hung a mirror to reflect the statue of Quan Yin who is regarded as a symbol of protection and healing. Likewise, the orchid is thought to be a symbol of health, fertility, and the quest for perfection in any area of one’s life. The fan symbolises auspicious movement of Qi (energy) and assists in dispersing negative Qi.
