AYRIAL’s Alexa Skills!
To be competitive in business twenty years ago, you needed a website. Ten years ago, you needed a smartphone app to keep up with the competition. Today, the future is here: The Voice Age!

Feng shui is an ancient practice developed over 3,000 years ago in China. Feng shui is not religion or superstition; it is a science because its formulas and fundamentals are based on empirical research and it is an art because experience and judgment are critical in the analysis. Feng Shui focuses on the study of Qi (pronounced “chi”, which is vital life energy) and how it can be harnessed to create harmonious living; better health, successful career or business, and fulfilling relationships for the people inhabiting the space.
