Who is Dr Michael Oon?
I am Dr Michael Oon and am the only consultant practising Traditional Chinese lineage Feng Shui in the UK.
It is the Chinese tradition where the Master trains the students of the next generation to replicate methods that have been handed down from generation to generation. These established methods have proved to work over the centuries.
I have been consulting for the past 20 years and specialising in Feng Shui. I have worked with more than a thousand properties in the UK and many parts of the world (Europe, North America, East Asia, Middle East, Southern Africa).
These range from the single property, office block, shopping centre to the design of cities.
Previously, I was a Forensic Scientist with London’s Metropolitan Police, whose headquarters is at New Scotland Yard.
I was brought up in Singapore in a traditional Chinese family with Chinese values and traditions. I also know that the Chinese are perceived as secretive and keep the practice knowledge to themselves.
There is more to this than the reputation. Like any guild of artisans, they develop propriety methods and only pass on this practice method to those they consider worthy.
There are researchers and writers who would publish what they could get hold of—very much of the “noise” in today’s social media.
When I started reading about Feng Shui in the UK, it was all about formulae and interiors. This was contradictory to my perception of the application of Feng Shui in Singapore. Feng shui was applied to the city – it was about the exteriors like the network of roads. Even the story about Hyatt Hotel was about the surrounding environment. It did not fit.
As a scientist, I was curious. I needed to find out the “real” feng shui principles, not the highly publicised versions. I know of Chinese Societies where they practise their propriety methods passed down from generation to generation.
If I wanted to work as a feng shui consultant, I needed to use established methods that worked, which I could only get from lineage Societies to verify my integrity.
I realised the importance of integrity after working as a Forensic Scientist at the Metropolitan Police Laboratories in London. Therefore, I did not want to work with unproven methods that could give unreliable results.
Professional Training and Expertise
After a search lasting a few years, I was selected to be an indoor student with a lineage holder Shyan Tseng (Blue Dragon Feng Shui), for training. The methods learnt were about directly handling the energy in the environment and the primary tools of Chinese Metaphysics. There were no formulae, and we worked on both the exteriors (the environment) and the interiors of buildings.
All the training is by verbal instruction: no books or written text. There was a lot of physical work in the training programme.
We then went on to work as apprentices as a team as part of Alliance Feng Shui on projects. It was a wide range – from houses to the design of cities.
I specialise in Feng Shui. The scale of my work is vast – from a small residential property to the design of a city. I do not teach, train or mentor. My focus is on Feng Shui and marketing on the Web. I do it well.
I do not work on Chinese Astrology like BaZi and other high-level Chinese Metaphysics like QiMen DunJia, DaLiu Ren or date selection. These are carried out by other members of the team.
We are all team members, with different members having their own specialisations. It is not a one-person band. It is teamwork. We trained together, and we worked together as a family.
I have worked on jobs of different scales – consultation of property, assisting in the design of homes, buildings – hotels, shopping centres, film studios, conference centres, complexes, and cities’ design.
I have worked not only in the UK and Europe but also, North America, South East Asia, the Middle East and Southern Africa.
I have worked (and stayed in primitive accommodation) jungles of Indo-China and Malaysia to staying in 5-star accommodation in North America. The range of projects is vast.
It is the policy in Alliance Feng Shui that we do not reveal our clients’ names. They are confidential. Hence, no reference is made.
However, when I am working on my own as Michael Oon Consulting (michaeloon.com), I have been able to get reviews on google reviews. In this modern-day, it is essential to get reviews to reflect on the work carried out (link).
I have published a book – “Creating Competitive Advantage using Traditional Feng Shui”. It is projects involving Traditional Feng Shui. This is about results. Other books on Feng Shui are about methods.
I have given numerous talks in the UK in groups, associations, radio and TV. Also, in Malaysia and Singapore – a presentation at the International Feng Shui Association.
