What is Chromotherapy?
Updated: Apr 4, 2019
Chromotherapy is the practice of using colour and light to improve your mental and physical state. At Pure Wellness Studio, we use chromotherapy lights in our infrared saunas so that you can maximise the benefits of both therapies.
Now, before you dismiss the idea of colours having an effect on your health, think back to a time you have watched the sunrise and it warmed your heart. The beautiful light and warmth rising above you made you feel better. It's a common experience and just one of many examples of colour affecting the mind, body and soul. Another word for chromotherapy is colour therapy. Chromotherapy uses colours on the visible spectrum to balance bodily vibrations and bring them up or down to frequencies that improve your health and wellbeing. Different colours have different effects - at Pure Wellness Studio we focus our therapy around six key shades.
When visiting our wellness studio in Melbourne for an infrared therapy session, we will always ask you how you are feeling on that particular day. This isn't just because we care (we do!) but because your answer will determine which chromotherapy light we recommend for your session. Take a look at our six chromotherapy colours below - usually our clients will resonate with the colour associated with the state they are seeking (for example, to be more relaxed or focused).
RELAXATION - BLUE
Let ‘calm’ wash over you as you rest under our blue chromotherapy lights. Blue promotes relaxation and calm. It exhibits tranquillising qualities to relieve headaches, migraines, colds, stress, nervous tension, stomach pains, rheumatism, muscle cramps and liver disorders.
CLARITY - VIOLET Clear the ‘brain fog’ and gain some perspective under our violet chromotherapy light. Violet is used to calm the nervous system, soothe organs and relax muscles. It’s meditative qualities are often used to treat conditions of the lymphatic system.
ENERGY - RED Often referred to as the colour of ‘fire and blood’, red is a very emotionally intense colour. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure, making it great for producing and maintaining energy.
FOCUS - ORANGE
Bask in the radiance of orange and refocus your mind. Orange incites enthusiasm, and determination. This chromotherapy light is said to activate and eliminate localised fat, assist with asthma and bronchitis.
BALANCE - GREEN
Find your flow under vibrant green light. Green lights create a neutral, positive, calming effect which is great for balancing out your mood and energy. It also provides anti-infectious, antiseptic and regenerative stimulation.
POSITIVITY - YELLOW
Feeling down? Yellow will put a smile on your dile. Our yellow chromotherapy light purifies the skin, strengthens the nervous system, assists metabolism and indigestion, treats glandular diseases, hepatitis and lymphatic disorders.
