What is Colour Therapy?
Colour therapy and energy healing (also known as chromotherapy) uses the visible spectrum of light and colour to affect a person’s mood and physical or mental health. Each colour falls into a specific frequency and vibration, which many believe contribute to specific properties that can be used to affect the energy and frequencies within our bodies.
Colours are known to have an effect on people with emotional troubles. For example, the colour blue can have a calming effect which can then result in lower blood pressure, whereas the colour red might have the opposite effect. Green is another colour that may be used to relax people who are emotionally unbalanced. Yellow, on the other hand, may be used to help invigorate people who might be suffering from depression.
A chakra reading is taken before treatment in order to assess the energy within the chakras.
Colour Therapy can be administered in all kinds of ways and usually starts with a consultation to assess the situation and a personal therapy plan is drawn up. Colour can be given by the silks as you can see, by lights, coloured scarves, crystals to name a few of the better known ways. More often than not a session will include several ways of administering and sending colour to where it is needed. It is quite amazing how much one session can alter the balance although, often it will take more than one session to totally bring things back to their true order.
As an energy healer I often use colour in my healings by mentally directing specific colour rays into the patient's aura and body. Oftentimes, the colour that’s used is inspired by the subconcious.
