What is Feng Shui
Feng Shui is a discipline of Chinese origin, which studies how mankind can make the most out of the surrounding environment.
It first originated more than 5000 years ago and continues to develop, insofar as living and workspaces have evolved over time, not to mention the world as a whole.
Feng Shui is a universal discipline as it focuses on the profound part of the individual and the rediscovery of their natural instinct which is generally suppressed by convention.
Feng Shui is independent from geographical area and in spite of this it is still able to show those who apply it how to use an area to reap maximum benefit.
Feng Shui for People
The home we live in represents who we are, to the extent that it actually speaks of our past, our present and above all, conditions our future.
In the western world it is common for people to live in the same home form many years.
Therefore, our living environment and psycho-physical well-being are strongly interconnected.
The first step towards action is to develop an awareness that the environment we live in determines the quality of life itself, for us in the here and now and above all, for future generations.
Taking care of our home is a way of taking care of ourselves.
This is why it is important to apply the principles of Feng Shui to our living environment.

What consultancy involves
The service is generally developed as follows:
- a preliminary meeting with the owner, identification of issues and the client’s objectives;
- an inspection of the space to be analysed and collection of all information required;
- analysis of the building and its occupants; presentation of a project proposal;
- discussion with owner, to check and define actions to be taken;
- implementation of changes to be made in the building;
- follow-up and check in the months after the consultancy operation have been implemented.
The Scientific-Intuitive method
Scientific-intuitive Feng Shui is based on the experimentation and verification of techniques, along with the development of body awareness in relation to surrounding environments. Focus is on understanding the “why” (principles and priorities) as opposed to just the “how” (techniques and methods), as the actual effectiveness of methods is evaluated. Believing is not enough, it is important to know.
This method recovers fragments from a number of different settings, dating back to 5000 BC, reconstructing missing parts, based on experimentation and cross-checking and then integrating them with new aspects and previously unassessed possibilities.
The Form School and the Compass School are interpreted in relation to archetypal information obtained from trigrams. Their application is essential insofar as not only does it enable a more in-depth interpretation on a number of levels, but it is also an essential link which further qualifies the work done with Luo Pan.
Therefore, this approach aims to go back to the origins of Feng Shui, a pure and uncontaminated Feng Shui, proven to be true and valid, which correctly balances technique and the intrinsic instinct of mankind.
