About Colour Therapy
Colour Therapy is the ancient art of holistic healing using the energy of light and colour in various forms to assist a number of physical and emotional disorders and balancing the body’s natural energy centres.
Apart from the physical benefits, colour can also affect our moods. Using colour either visually, physically or psychologically there can be a shift of mood and removal of blocked energy, enabling the body to relax and heal itself internally.
Before the use of drugs, colour therapy, along with other holistic therapies, was used as a healing for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Its roots are based in the ancient civilisations of Egypt, Persia, China and India, and continues to receive recognition in Ayurvedic medicine today.
There are various tools that can apply colour energy both physically and psychologically. The ancient civilisations observed how the different colours, when applied to various areas of the body, affected the organs beneath and developed what has become known as the chakra system. They also used numerology, symbolism, animals, astronomy and mathematics to develop various ways of defining personality traits. Down through the centuries, many people have used these various methods in different ways. However, whichever method is preferred, they all reach the same conclusion in observation of these ancient arts.
The coloured light rooms of Egypt and Greece are well-documented as a means of healing, and today some professional healthcare establishments build sensory rooms for adults and children with learning difficulties, as research has shown that colour and light encourages psychological interaction where language may fail. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-18438826
It is also well known that Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.) is greatly improved with the use of full spectrum light boxes. http://www.sada.org.uk/treatment-1.html
The Scientific Facts
All light is energy and all colour is light. Visible light is a small part of the electro-magnetic spectrum sitting between infra-red and ultra-violet energy. All these energies vibrate at different frequencies, and the wavelength at which each colour within that light vibrates gives each coloured wavelength its distinct property.
Through the intelligent application of colour in its various forms, physical and emotional conditions can be affected. Colour Therapy works alongside conventional medicine in a complementary way. It works at cellular level by stimulating/inhibiting chemical release via the nervous and endocrine systems.
Apart from the physical benefits, colour can also affect our moods. Using colour either visually, physically or mentally, there can be a shift of mood and removal of blocked energy.
How Colour Therapy Works
Colour therapy – stimulates the body’s own healing processes by regenerating and re-balancing cellular behaviour. It restores the delicate balance of the vibrational electro-magnetic coloured energy within the body.
Our body has seven main energy centres. Beneath these energy centres, every cell and organ in the body vibrates at a particular frequency. Exposure to light and colour can affect changes and realign energy levels, which in turn, will enable the body to ‘heal’ itself and keep it in good health.
Colour therapy can nourish the physical cells and organs and influence our moods.
It works alongside conventional medicine. It should be stated that it is NOT AN ALTERNATIVE to orthodox medicine, particularly for serious medical conditions.
