The art and science of Feng Shui (literally "wind" and "water") dates back over 5,000 years to ancient China. The theoretical basis of Feng Shui revolves around five elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. Through Feng Shui, the correct placement and arrangement of objects representing these elements balanced and optimizes the harmonious flow of qi ("life force") - so as to affect personal relationships, careers, wealth, and ultimately, health.
Ultimately, Feng Shui can mean different things to different people. But please note that it does not contradict any religious, cultural or traditional beliefs.
