Feng shui is an ancient technique of ancient China that helps us to restore the balance of natural energies of the earth distorted by man along civilizations.
Feng Shui creates a balance of everything: shapes, colors, elements, … at all scales, from the city, housing, a stay or an object. Each element that makes up the whole must be in balance.
Feng shui was used in ancient China at the time of placing the cities according to the valleys, mountains and rivers. The Forbidden City in Beijing is the largest building built in the art of feng shui.
