Who would have thought that where your front door is located or how your bed is oriented in your sleeping room has the potential to impact your health, social life and productivity? Those were exactly the issues explored in “Feng Shui for Health,” presented by Mary Rose Villanova.
For nearly a decade and a half the Yo San University Board of Trustees has provided the vision for the planning and implementation of the program.

In the past year I’ve had to take one of these prevention formulas at least once a month and have only been sick once. Not bad for seeing more than ten patients a month with the cold or influenza. But as I binge watched a mind-numbing amount of TV I realized that two weeks is way too long to be down with this loathsome, contemptible illness – I don’t have time for this!
Professor Chen and his team were clearly impressed with what they saw. “You (YSU) are so small and yet you offer so much education and clinical training to your students”, Professor Chen complimented. Thank you, GZUCM visitors!
