Color Healing

December 25, 2010 No Comments

Color Healing, or chromotherapy, has been used to heal bodies and souls since ancient Egypt and China. Scientists study how color itself stimulates people and even use their color likes and dislikes to assess their personalities.

Color healing can be used in alternative or holistic medicine by trained therapists to balance energy, emotions, and physical health. Color healing is also used in traditional medicine: Blue light is used to treat babies with jaundice, while ultraviolet light is used to treat various skin conditions.

Each different color on the spectrum, or wavelength of light, has a frequency. When the body’s energy is disrupted, disease or injury can result. Restoring energy through the corresponding wavelength of light enables the body’s innate healing ability to take effect. Various tools may be used in color healing, including gemstones, crystals or prisms, colored fabrics, and candles. As well as surrounding the person in a particular color, with intention.

Each color has its own properties and color healing values.

  • Red promotes blood circulation and improves blood flow to the brain, it improves sexual appetite and response, and it can stimulate ovulation and decrease menstrual irregularities.
  • Orange can stimulate lactation and increase milk production, it can be stimulating to the respiratory system, it can improve the digestive system and relieve flatulence, and it can stimulate creativity.
