Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant | Oxford & Portugal
As a result of living in a house with many unexplained disturbances, including a ghost, Brenda started to investigate subtle energies.
Her research led her to Feng Shui, how energy flows through a space and how it affects people and places. Brenda discovered that if energy is perfectly balanced in a property, it can have positive life-changing effects.
She qualified with Grand Master Raymond Lo (pictured with Brenda) in Feng Shui, Four Pillars, Flying Stars and I Ching.
