It is traditional in the practice of BTB Feng Shui to pay for services rendered in red envelopes. Red envelopes are used for many reasons in Asian traditions, i.e. giving a couple a gift of money at their wedding, or giving children money at New Year’s. In the Asian culture, it is considered rude to hand someone cash and therefore, the red envelope is most often used. The red envelope symbolizes good luck, power and protection and increases the strength and effectiveness of Feng Shui cures.


In my Feng Shui practice, I follow this tradition by receiving all or part of my fee in red envelopes. If you are paying your deposit by credit card, it is not necessary to use the red envelope for that portion of the transaction. In these modern times, with computerized credit card services, it is difficult to adhere to the strictest traditions, but I do my best to honor this tradition by requesting payment in red envelopes.


This will reserve/confirm your session and allow Catherine to accurately schedule other clientele throughout the week. The deposit fee will be put toward your total cost.
