I very much doubt that wind chimes, at least as usually used today, are part of traditional Feng Shue, which is as usually practised, a bastardised version of a traditional system, often simply invented by the "practitioners".
However, there are so many sound, or even types of music which one person finds soothing, another interesting, another boring, and another intensely irritating.
A HUGE set of chimes seems to defeat the purpose, which is to provide a soft, gentle, random twinling in the wind, not chimes to rival the local church. And they should be inside her home, only near an open window, and in most cases neighbours wouldnt even hear or notice it.
Eve is right - your neighbour is selfish, petulant, and probably enormously vulgar.
Within a complex there should be a body corporate with rules about noise and annoyances and they should have both a right and a duty to stop such nuisancesm just as to stop mpokaying loud music late at night.
In a house its harder, and though there are usually City Council ordinances about noise and nuisance to neuibours, they'd probably not take this seriously. And I discovered years ago, when a neighbour chose to have incredibly noisy drilling through solid rock for a borehole, ONLY therough the night for a week, though its technically an offense to make a noise after sundown - the office that deals with this must witness the problem, and of course closes at 4 pm !
Establishing a rival nuisance could be tempting - whether a louder and more unpleasant set of chimes, or playing loud music of your favourite sort so as to drown out the noise of her charms, but this could lead to further problems.
Maybe a pharmacist can supply ear-plugs ? Or get an Mp3 player loaded with your favourite music, and close her chimes off with the ear-buds and listen to something far more pleasant and restful.
