Energy, associated with the quality of the environment around us, allows us to live a full life, in perfect balance with our surroundings. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art with a scientific component, which will help us achieve harmony in our lives through healthy environments.
We’ve all been in places where we’ve felt better than in others. This sensation is due to the way in which energy flows in a given space, whether through light vibration, sound vibration or electromagnetic energy.
The Feng Shui techniques can help you fine-tune that energy, enhancing your positive moments and helping you through tough times.
When the spaces support the inhabitants through energy, life flows more harmoniously and people become happier, more wholesome, healthier and financially stable.
Feng Shui allows us to harmonize, balance and enhance the energy in homes and spaces, helping the inhabitants achieve their goals, such as health, relationships, prosperity, professional life, social recognition and others. This is because a home is the mirror of those who inhabit it.
The energy flowing around you will affect your life and the way you feel, so please safeguard them, fine-tune them and let them flow in harmony with you!

The Personal Shopper service is something new we created following suggestions from our clients, who stated they would appreciate having someone assisting them when choosing what to buy for their new home. It’s not that Feng Shui requires a full remodelling, rather that doubts always arise as to what item is most suited to each situation. New technologies certainly allow clients to contact us on the spot and clarify any occasional doubts, but it’s a great benefit to have the consultant on hand, offering personalized counselling, particularly since in addition to helping you make the right choices, it speeds up the entire process.
We are currently negotiating partnerships so our clients may further benefit from discounts in-store when using this service.
Home is the reflex of all our inner process, so the Personalized Support service comes from the need of our clientes in having a professional support in their homes to help them out in the final process of implementation of a Feng Shui Process.
Either our costumers are heavily attached to junk, which are blocking their lives, or the way how their home is organized or even because they need someone to encourage them and give the little push to a beginning, in this sense a specialized and professional consultant who will help you out to declutter and organize your home and life.
Workshops and lectures can be done through partners, companies and associations. We have recently launched a “workshops by request” service. These came about due to various people inquiring about tailor-made Feng Shui workshops, i.e. gathering a group of friends to discuss a subject they all have in common. Generally they are done in the client’s home or at a venue chosen by us. These tailor-made workshops enable moments of sharing and discovering new ways of well-being and harmony that can then lead to a better life overall.
The workshops for companies and/or associations can be organized according to the subjects the entity wishes to address and take place at their facilities.
Throughout the year there is a defined plan of events and workshops with our partners, which are open to the general public.
The Home Organizer service, together with Feng Shui, contributes to having an organized and harmonious home, as well as for a calmer life, with greater quality.
Professional home organization is a fairly recent activity that came about in the US in the 1990’s. It encompasses organizing both home and corporate environments through individual and customized solutions.
An organized home offers you a simpler life, more harmonious environments and greater quality of life, which are so essential nowadays.
Any important activity that we are about to undertake, such as starting something, moving house, starting a business, releasing a product/service, setting the date for a wedding, a trip and others… Through Feng Shui we can determine the best date for the event so that you can make the most of it and reap the most benefits.
The I Ching, or the Book of Changes, is the oldest oracle in mankind. As it was being developed, the wise men of old times stopped seeing it as merely an oracle and began, with its help, to understand how the world ran in all its complexity. It was the basis for studying the natural world and the way in which the cycles flow.
The I Ching survived riots, wars and uprisings and has made it into the world today.
Men have always sought answers concerning their future and what it would bring them. The I Ching will not tell you what to do, rather it will offer you advice and counsel you regarding the nature of the problem and the best way in which to tackle it. The I Ching throwing is scheduled with the consultant, who will ask you a clear and concise question.
There are several methods of throwing, namely counting rods, coins and cards. This will create a hexagram, which will be interpreted, as it contains the answer to the question asked.
Just as the name implies, Directionology is the study of the energetic qualities of a given direction, namely whether it is favourable or not for the person travelling.
This type of consultation may be applied to trips, in order to determine if a certain trip will be favourable or not, specifically for businesses purposes, whether these are conducted by travelling somewhere, by phone or internet with a person or company that is located elsewhere (city or country); for health purposes, for example to determine if a certain direction is favourable for the treatment in question; or even to know the best destination for holidays, honeymoon or other.
The favourable or unfavourable directions vary according to the person, time and space.
Is your intention to sell or lease your home?
Feng Shui provides calculation methods which will allow you to sell your home or commercial property.
These methods enable you to place “for sale” sign in the best spot for you to sell as quickly as possible and in the best manner you can.
We also analyze whether selling is indeed your best option and also the best time in which to take that step.
At the same time, we can also assist you when choosing your future home. There are a series of requirements that should be taken into account when buying or letting your home.
Please contact us so we may assist you in finding your new home using Feng Shui and calculate the best moment for moving.
When the energy (QI) of spaces supports the inhabitants, life flows in a more harmonious way and people become happier, more wholesome, healthier and financially stable.
Feng Shui allows us to harmonize, balance and enhance the QI in homes and spaces, helping their inhabitants reach certain goals, such as prosperity, wealth, health, relationships, social recognition, studies, among many others. This is because a home is a reflection of those who inhabit it.
A Feng Shui consultation begins with a visit to the location, where the consultant talks to the client or the architect (in the event of space planning or during the construction phase) in order to identify their goals. The consultant will also measure the space using the Luo-Pan compass for further analysis. The project is then drawn up and delivered to the client – this project is geared towards solving and/or identifying concrete issues and can be of any level of complexity, as well as containing the suggestions and healings to be applied so that the goals defined can be met.
The classical or traditional method, the most ancient one, uses a Chinese compass, the Luo-Pan (in the olden days the sun was used as a reference point). The energy charts of the house are drawn up using these measurements, taking into account the house’s orientations and outside shapes. After these have been duly analyzed, the amendments and healings are carried out in order to improve all aspects of the inhabitants’ lives so that they may achieve their goals.
Ideally Feng Shui should be applied during a house’s planning phase to ensure that the house is sited in the best location, and with a layout or organization that respects the house’s QI. However, Feng Shui can be applied in houses undergoing renovation or even those already completed and inhabited. Feng Shui consultations can also be done in outdoor spaces, businesses, when buying and selling property, selecting dates: choosing the best dates to start businesses, to sign contracts, weddings, scheduling surgeries, to travel, and many other important occasions.
The productivity and wellbeing of the workers in a company or business have always been a concern. We all know that a worker with a good inner balance, in tune with the environment around him/her is more productive. This represents financial gains and other gains for the businesses.
Because the elements that constitute a space, such as plants, are fundamental, A partnership was established in 2017 with IMArq. Paisagista that creates green areas both interior and exterior, helping our clients to select the most adequate plants for they're houses, gardens and companies, has well as to compose the environment.
IMArq. Paisagista is an Atelier that has the goal to find the best solutions to include nature on your day, either on a garden, terrace, at home or even at the office.
