Many find that music makes working more fun and that it makes you function more productively and creatively. Important aspects for increasing productivity through music are the tempo, rhythm and lyrics of the song.

The colourful melodies of bells, wind chimes, bamboo tubes and other Chinese instruments are soothing. Feng Shui music clarifies and can boost the inner self. Based on the I-Ching book of change and the five Chinese tones, Feng Shui music is designed to help people change their lives through the energy the music brings them.

Few know that the origin of music therapy comes from TCM - Traditional Chinese Medicine.
