Natural Health, working with Shamanic and Taoist philosophywhich underpins some of
Traditional Chinese medicine and Geomancyincluding the principals of
Feng Shui.Which teaches a deeper
understanding of how our environment,food and life habits affect us and we can affect them. By using this philosophy it opens up a more subtle and adaptable way of understanding where
imbalances in our daily environment,life patterns or diet may exist.
While the services of
Energy Aware Livingremain largely analytical, where a more subtle approach is felt more appropriate or desirable by the client this can be explored to provide overall a
more rounded service for the client.
