What is traditional Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is Chinese for wind and water, the nature science. traditional Feng Shui (American pronunciation is fung shway) states that all living things in the universe are subject to the control of the environment. In ancient Chinese geomancy, the most important concept is air. In fact, air means current or energy (Chi or Qi). It is believed that this air, if directed in a knowledgeable way, can promote harmony, prosperity, good health and long life. That's why ancient Chinese dynasties kept traditional Feng Shui methods secret, ensuring their rule for centuries.
How does classic Feng Shui work?
The traditional Feng Shui practitioner / classic Feng Shui consultant calculates a building and/or a lot and does an analysis based on inside and outside elements. This information is combined with personalized data, and extensive research is performed on the unique results. Examples of traditional Feng Shui: A staircase should not face the main door; a money or people block may exist for the current year or longer; the year you were born determines the direction you sleep; and new years and circumstances affect one's environment (just as in life).
There is no 'cookie-cutter' approach with geomancy, which provides personalized, scientific analysis and is traditional Feng Shui. Other methods include Black Hat, an approach developed in recent years, which uses the Ba Gua to interpret life stations. Its focus is on color, mirrors and objects. There's also intuitive Feng Shui.
All have a purpose and bring value. traditional Feng Shui provides a firm foundation. Just as a house needs a good foundation to build upon, so does traditional Feng Shui. Remodeling and redecorating only go so far to change one's environment. If a poor foundation exists, the other changes are not a wise investment.
The American academic community recognizes traditional Feng Shui that customizes your information per your time and space (solar and magnetic) measurements.
What is traditional Feng Shui based on?
Traditional Feng Shui is based on geomancy, a complete and complicated set of theories and calculations derived from I-Ching. It is a complex scientific method, rather than a metaphysical reading relying on inspiration or conjecture. Traditional Feng Shui calculates the physical reactions among the natural environmental elements, and their interaction with air currents, energy and magnetic fields.

Why embrace classic Feng Shui?
What qualifies a traditional Feng Shui practitioner / classic Feng Shui consultant?
There aren't currently educational or certification requirements to practice traditional Feng Shui, unfortunately. Therefore, it's important to find a credible traditional Feng Shui practitioner / classic Feng Shui consultant. Energy fields, good or bad, should not be left to interpretation and inexperience. People often ask, "what makes a good traditional Feng Shui practitioner?" My reply is three fold: When people enter, traditional Feng Shui is felt not seen. You experience a collaborative energy journey, not a decorating destination. Results, results, results!
How are classic Feng Shui consultations performed?
Personal Analysis determines your Chinese trigram and horoscope, evaluates good and not so good directions and makes predictions for the current year (among many other things). On-site Analysis is a comprehensive consultation anywhere in the United States or abroad, and currently in the English language. A residential consult typically produces a 60+ page report. Telephone Analysis is an intensive two-hour telephone consultation and may involve e-mail, fax and U.S. mail. This conversation is recorded and sent to you.
What determines the cost of a classic Feng Shui analysis?
A proper diagnosis of symptoms is necessary for a successful cure. Similarly, in classic Feng Shui a correct analysis, or evaluation, is the starting point for a proper resolution. During the survey, we first observe the surrounding landscape. To do this, we observe the flow of ch'i in the landscape and ensure the building receives the most beneficial energy. Landscape design features are then suggested to be used to eliminate disturbances from inauspicious sources.
Secondly, the interior is analyzed to ensure a proper flow of ch'i in every room to maximize energy flow and elemental balance. At this stage, the furniture layout is important and we recommend appropriate design features for better results.
The third phase is the most critical. The ch'i components are analyzed in detail. Just as white light passing through a prism is divided into electromagnetic spectrum colors, so the flow of ch'i is divided into branches of energy vibrating at different frequencies. This process of analysis shows whether a site's energetic field is balanced using the geomancer's compass to find the magnetic pole, establish the building's orientation, and combine this information with others derived by knowing the date of construction of the building.
Then, we consult on natural elemental objects and colors (belonging to missing energy frequencies that can be introduced) to recreate harmony. This analysis is applied to every room of the house to ensure total balance. The fourth phase involves compatibility of the building with its primary inhabitants. We pay more detailed attention to space and color, as well as bed and desk orientation, favoring the options most beneficial to the inhabitants.
The results of such an evaluation will create detailed guidelines involving furniture layout and interior design in the case of an existing building. For new construction, design development concepts are provided for new buildings or remodeling.
