Bursitis Feng Shui Healing

Bursitis Feng Shui is an ancient method of creating a harmonious environment - the exterior and interior space where you live and work - including light, colors, sounds, smells, materials or furniture.

As our physical health is closely interconnected with our environment, tuning yourself into it can help you become as healthy as you can be.

Fun Feng Shui Facts

The Neanderthal cavemen chose their caves to live in based on three criteria:

  1. hight from the ground
  2. visibility of the surrounding area from the cave entrance
  3. accessibility of water

So even our old ancestors were naturally aware of the effects of placement in their environment. And that was some good 25,000 years ago or more.

Interestingly enough, all three of the cavemen criteria are in harmony with the basic principles of Feng Shui, which literally means wind-water.

Feng (wind) and shui (water) are the two natural elements that flow everywhere on Earth and are essential for our survival, health and well-being. Without air we would die in moments. Without water, we would die in days.

Feng Shui has developed in ancient China about 8,000 years ago and it was a well kept secret, known only to a handful of scientists commissioned to maintain the health, wealth, and power of the emperors. Beijing's spectacular complex of palaces, courtyards and temples - the Forbidden City - is a prime example of Feng Shui.

Feng Shui become more sophisticated over the centuries and was introduced to the US by Master Lin Yun in the 1970s.

Nowadays, it's everywhere: homes, hotels, cafes,...

Even entire communities in Hong Kong have been planned according to Feng Shui and so were premises of corporations like Citicorp or the Trump's empire, who are using Feng Shui to improve their business.

And yes, the British Royal family are believed to Feng Shui it too.

The 9th Bagua area in the very centre of the map is the Health section, which touches all other areas of Bagua, just as your health touches all other aspects of your life and being.

Specific gemstones are associated with each of the Bagua sections. The centre of the grid is associated with andalusite or tourmaline. So decorating your home with these bursitis Feng Shui stones will improve your physical health.


It is amazing how badly positioned furniture can affect our health:

  • Position your bed so that its head is against a wall and/or it is tucked in the back corner of a room (for grounding). Also, the foot of the bed should not be across from a door (for protection from fast moving energy).
  • Avoid having your chair positioned with your back facing the door, you should always have your eyes on the door.
  • Corners and edges of furniture should not aim at people.
  • Long empty stretches of room or hall are not ideal - use furniture to create the feeling of smaller and more intimate spaces.


To encourage positive energy flow in your home and so reduce your bursitis and tendonitis pains, all essential repairs should be taken care of:

  • Repair all doors to rooms and cabinets - hinges, doorknobs,...
  • Fix (and clean) your windows - the 'eyes of Chi life force'
  • Mend frayed wires as electricity represents our neurological balance
  • Replace empty light bulb sockets
  • Sinks, showers, tubs and toilets are connected to the Feng Shui water element and are potential energy drainers - so keep the bathroom doors closed, toilet lid down and the plugs in the drains
  • Carry out all necessary plumbing adjustments to fix leaky faucets, clogged drains
