Why a massage therapist and Feng Shui Consultant and artist?
While bodywork looks at energy and its blockages; Feng Shui looks at energy and its blockages in one's environment. Shortly after graduating, I discovered a dilemma. Many Westerners shy away from making traditional feng shui changes because they don't relate to the cure/adjustment - an example being Chinese coins and bamboo flutes. So I created and designed a line of products that use feng shui principles, but also fit into modern Western homes without someone walking in and saying, "Oh, you've made a feng shui adjustment." The criteria for my products were they needed to be uniquely designed (not something manufactured on an assembly line); green (for the most part); use natural resources without destroying the ecological balance (sustainable); use nature's constructive cycle (The 5 Element Theory); be beautiful and yet have intention; and help connect people back to the Earth.
