Colour therapy, also known as Chromotherapy, is a colour-based therapeutic science.
It dates back to the ancient Egyptians and has been used for thousands of years. For therapeutic purposes, they used sun-filled rooms with coloured glasses.
It’s a type of therapy that uses color, most typically light, to correct the physical, mental, and spiritual energy imbalances that cause sickness. It is one of the most holistic and simplest approaches to healing.
This healing method does not require you to consume anything or apply anything to your body, such as an ointment. Simply lie or sit in front of the desired hue.
Chromotherapy, according to a study by Samina T. Yousuf Azeemi and S. Mohsin Raza is a narrow band in the cosmic electromagnetic energy spectrum, known as the visible colour spectrum. It is composed of reds, greens, blues and their combined derivatives, producing the perceivable colours that fall between the ultraviolet and the infrared ranges of energy or vibrations.
These visual colours with their unique wavelength and oscillations, when combined with a light source and selectively applied, provide healing energy required by the body. The most common form of light therapy is used to treat seasonal affective disorder that occurs in autumn and winter when there is less daylight. Very common in more Northern hemispheric countries.
Light affects both the physical and etheric bodies. Colours generate electrical impulses and magnetic currents or fields of energy that are prime activators of the biochemical and hormonal processes in the human body, the stimulants or sedatives necessary to balance the entire system and its organs.
