Color Therapy

Chromotherapy, also known as color therapy is a type of alternative treatment. Chromotherapy uses color, light and balance to help us balance our mind, body and soul to create harmony spiritually, emotionally, physically and psychologically.

Chromotherapists believe in this approach because they said that colors create different moods in people and can affect they way we live our lives. Chromotherapy is done by applying different lights and shades to various parts of the body in an acupoint fashion or in general. Colors can hold positive and negative effects and so it is important to understand what colors work in which instances. A positive color can have marvelous positive effects on someone but not do much for someone else. Different tools are used in color therapy such as wands, crystals, light beams and candles. Several traditional civilizations have used and still use color apart of their healing process. In ancient Chinese medicine, every part of the body has a different color. Ancient Egyptians built solarium type buildings with different colored panes of glass. In the United States, it is getting more and more popular, the idea and study of chromotherapy. Especially nowadays where people are looking into alternative therapies in the western world. In Europe, some scientists developed a way of combining color therapy with acupuncture to create a sort of culmination of the two therapies. In India, the study of Ayurveda centers itself on the idea of chakras and each of these chakras has its own color associated with it. The chakras work by being energy centers that deliver energy to the different parts of our body.

In chromotherapy, the color red is associated with fire and the sun. It is also related to jealousy, passion and desire. A person with too much red in them could be fairly dominant, cruel, angry and maybe vulgar.

Kind-heartedness and warmth are associated with the color orange. This is because it is a mix of red and yellow. Orange has been known to be used for treating patients with mental diseases with some promising results. Yellow is associated with the sun and the horizon. Being the brightest color, it is used a lot in color therapy to help with healing processes. Naturotherapy uses this color a lot to help combat diseases such as those of the glandular and lymphatic systems. People with excess yellow may be daydreamers with a lack of concentration but some deviousness. Green is the color of harmony. It is in the middle of the spectrum and is associated with calming and relaxing measures. It is also the color of possession and concentration. Naturotherapy uses this color to treat bronchitis, whooping cough, inflammations and swellings. Blue is the color of peace and tranquility. It is also the infinite color and is the color to relax us. Indigo is also known to be a relaxing color but is also the color for psychic perception and awareness. Violet is the color of the emotions and is used in meditation. Color therapy uses violet in conjunction with acupuncture to treat lymphatic and spleen disorders. An excess amount of this color can lead to obsessiveness and domination.

Although color therapy has been known to have positive effects on some humans, it is not to say that it is positive for all humans. There has not been enough scientific evidence to suggest that this type of therapy can be beneficial for humans and should not be seen as a replacement for conventional medicine, but simply a complementary approach. You can find further information available on the Internet or consult your local doctor or physician.
