Use Feng Shui To Create A Restful Setting for Your Hot Tub

The ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui may not spring to mind when you’re considering where to put your hot tub.  But the principles of balance and flow embodied in Feng Shui are also good principles of design from any point of view.

Feng Shui is an art form that has been practiced in the Far East for over five thousand years.

Feng means “Wind” and Shui means “Water” and Feng Shui is the “art of living in harmony with the earth”. When we live our lives in balance and harmony, we are filled with happiness, contentment, and abundance.

Feng Shui is a Taoist based vision of the natural world; alive and filled with “Chi”

, or energy. The ancient Chinese believed the land’s energy (chi) could be positive or negative (yin or yang).

Yin and Yang are two opposites in the Living Universe. Yin is represented by Black and Yang is White. Classic examples of yin and yang are; night versus day; short versus tall; and male versus female. While they are opposite, it is also true that one cannot exist without the other. Without night there is no day and without black there would be no white… Thus, yin and yang energies are constantly interacting with each other in our daily lives, practitioners of the yin-yang concept advocate the need of a balance the two forces. This is where The Art of Feng Shui fits in. ( Sources: FengShui.About.com, UnderstandingOccults.com)

These basic ideas can help shape your space into a restful, pleasing setting for your hot tub:

  • Avoid rushing water – a gentle spill is preferable. Like in the water features on Hot Spring Spas.
  • Hang wind chimes for calm and relaxation.
  • Do not arrange objects with their corners pointing toward important areas.
  • Avoid sharp objects pointing upward – especially tall sharp objects such as poles.
  • Concentrate on balance – warm and cool, soft and hard – in materials, color, shapes, and even scale.
  • Combine the opposing elements of fire and water. A fire pit is the perfect way to balance your hot tub and add that fire element.
  • Avoid straight lines of transit – let your paths and streams twist and wind.

The more soothing and in harmony and balance your hot tub setting is, the more you’ll use it. Consider adding some Feng Shui principles to your hot tub landscape.
