What is Colour Therapy?


Colour Therapy is a totally safe non-invasive complementary therapy that uses colour and light to bring back balance to the mind and body in order to stimulate deep inner healing. The appropriate healing colours are administered by a trained therapist and self-administered afterwards. Colour Therapy healing can be used to alleviate many different chronic problems, including pain management and also numerous symptoms brought about through emotional and mental stress.

Firstly, the colour therapist carries out a colour diagnostic test or art therapy task to highlight areas in your being that need attention. Afterwards, they will recommend healing and supportive hues to introduce into your dress, d├ęcor and diet, and also teach some simple colour healing techniques; for example, colour breathing, colour visualizations and affirmations. Over a course of several consultations a colour therapist may also give you a silk scarf, colour aromatherapy, colour reflexology or colour acupressure treatment.

Colour therapy healing is thousands of years old but it extends far beyond one particular treatment technique. It is a living therapy that is growing and changing to meet modern needs. Light therapy is one of the fastest developing areas of medicine that is incorporated into health and beauty treatments, sports therapy, optometry, haematology, physiotherapy and many other areas of healthcare.

How does Colour Therapy work?

 Colour is a form of life-sustaining energy contained in sunlight, and each wavelength of colour has its own particular healing quality and action upon us. Some colours in the warmer end of the spectrum stimulate and energise our physical body, while others stimulate our mental faculties or slow down our body processes and act on our intuitive, creative and unconscious mind.  So, the colours we are exposed to in our everyday life have a profound effect on our moods and behaviour.
