What Some of My Clients Have to Say about Feng Shui Manhattan
Thank you so much Laura and thank you for your suggestions. I have to say that since the day you left I noticed certain things happening already.

I found the perfect place for the dresser in my bedroom and the following day I found a missing mailbox key I had no clue I had and needed before leaving for my trip.
Thanks you so much again for being so supportive.
