Chromotherapy

Ancient Indian sciences believe that light is composed of colour, along with colours, light also consists of emotional elements since it emits heat, electricity and magnetism. Thus, light, along with its component colours, can be used for healing the mind, body and spirit. Different colours have different effects on the mind and body. Chromotherapy, when used for healing the body, utilizes colours based on their electrical and heating properties. Some colours actually cool and soothe the nerves (e.g. dark-violet, indigo) while some can excite or heat the blood (e.g. red-orange or dark red).

Best colours used in Chromo therapy to heal different body parts

  • Brain and nerves– Nerve soothing colours like blue, violet and indigo.
  • Neck and thorax– Cobalt blue for its cooling and heating properties.
  • Digestive disorders– Red and yellow to stimulate digestive juices as well as blue and violet to stimulate saliva.
  • Lower limb disorders– Warm colours like orange and orange red.
