Feng Shui and Mirrors


Feng Shui is an 8,000 year-old Chinese philosophy about the relationship between humans and their environment. Every item in a space and its placement 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 our Acupuncture Associates office in Wilmington, NC.

Feng Shui and MirrorsChinese tradition places a great importance on the use of mirrors in feng shui. According to feng shui principles, mirrors improve the flow of energy, or Qi, within a room.

Because they intensify natural and artificial light through reflection, mirrors make a room more pleasant and enjoyable to be in for any task.  When placed to reflect a pleasing view, mirrors can also add to one’s level of serenity and peace of mind.

In feng shui, light and mirrors can be used to create emotional effects, from increasing the sense of spaciousness in a room to representing the calming flow of water, a crucial element of balance. Additionally, many believe that mirrors help create inner calm by reflecting positive energies while absorbing negative energy.  This picture of the Acupuncture Associates reception area in our Wilmington, NC office shows how the strategic use of mirrors enlarges a space and adds light and energy to a small, but cozy area.
