Fifteen years ago when I first started my Feng Shui design practice, I adjusted my vocabulary when working with healthcare professionals for fear I would be considered too weird and “woo woo.”
At the time, I remember taking my first interior design class at the local junior college with the intention of simply learning how to speak a design language that was more Western, formal and more practical…. as I thought it would be “better” for my business. That was a false belief I later wholeheartedly let go of.
During my early Feng Shui days, one of the design concepts and tools I learned was the Taoist principal of yin and yang.
My first Feng Shui teacher taught me how to use yin and yang to create beautiful, balanced and magical spaces that make your guests ask, “What the heck did you do in here to make it feel this good?”
I still use yin and yang design principals in my design work today.
And, I normally don’t talk a lot about it.
Until today that is.
I have a new mini-podcast episode for you on The Tao of Healthcare Design.
The episode just went live a few hours ago and you can listen to it here:
In the episode you will learn:
💖 What the heck is yin and yang and why does it matter anyway?
👉 Examples of how a healthcare space can be too yin or too yang (and where you might fit in that range.)
🌈 Eye-opening and easy, peasy yin/yang design remedies that can create instant cozy for your patients and clients.
💖 What happens when you overlook this simple concept to the design of your waiting room.
👉 How to use yin and yang design that appeal to your Boomer, older adult and Millennial patients and clients.
🌈 Real-life examples of healthcare spaces and design ideas to create that perfect balance of yin and yang everyone will love!
Finally, here’s some fun homework, if you choose to accept it.
After you listen to the episode, send me an email with your answers to the following 3 questions:
1. Is your waiting room, treatment room, office or other space within your practice or wellness business too yin or too yang?
2. Does it need some balance?
3. If so, how do you think you could achieve that balance?
I’d love to know.
Yours in beautiful healing spaces that delight the eye and nurture the soul,
