Research shows the effects aquariums have on people are a healthy mind, body and spirit. Therapeutic effects of aquariums include calming nerves and lowering blood pressure. In 1999 a study of Purdue University found that a display tanks of brightly coloured fish curtailed disruptive behaviours of Alzheimer patients. The fish were also credited with improving eating habits. Other studies also showed that fish calmed children diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Aquariums help people to find rest, relaxation, tranquillity and harmony that will reduce stress and increase health.
Improve your Feng Shui
Feng shui translated means the way of wind and water, the natural forces of the universe. In more simplistic terms, feng shui tries to explain and manipulate the impact on the environment on people’s lives. In feng shui terms, moving water brings prosperity and good luck to the home or office. Aquariums are great feng shui enhancements because the sound and motion of gurgling water activates chi and adds humidity to a dry room, helping to balance chi.
Chi is defined as the underlying cosmic energy, sprint or essence of a person, place or thing. In the case of a place, chi is it’s atmosphere which can affect your well being. Moving water represents prosperity and brings good luck, harmony and good health to a household or office. Moving water gets things going when the chi has been stagnant for a while (like ice melting in the spring ). An aquarium can be extremely effective at increasing wealth and luck. Aquariums add wealth, energy of living fish to the power of moving water resulting in a richly symbolic and valuable wealth cure.
