I have been using color light/chromotherapy in combination with my far infrared sauna sessions for years. Recently I wrote about chromotherapy realizing I failed to delve more thoroughly into what each, specific color did to the body along with aligning the colors to acupoints thus bringing about homeostasis. Combined with the radiant, infrared light/heat from far infrared therapy, color light therapy only intensifies the benefits from both. Circulation is heightened as increased blood flow and oxygen surrounds and profoundly penetrates joints, skin and muscle tissue, along with into all the organs.
The warm and gentle heat waves directly flowing from far infrared heaters surround and deeply invade into the joints, muscles, skin, and organs of the body speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation. Infrared also removes impurities from cells, especially from fat cells. Harmful toxins are stored in fat cells; with waste, cholesterol and heavy metals. Infrared sauna therapy conjoined with Color Therapy use is an excellent avenue which can be utilized in the maintenance of a healthy body.
Homeostasis is when the body maintains a stable internal environment or psychologically when, under varying stressors, the person maintains a stable mental state. When utilizing Color Therapy light is applied both generally and also specifically to acupoints on the body which aids in enhancing homeostasis. Recently I came across a quote by A. Camilleri. Loosely translated it states that all life is dependant upon light for total existence; oceans, earth, humans. Every human body emits light as we exist in a sea of energy; we are composed of pure energy. Color is energy and flows through our bodies, in every nerve, cell, gland, and muscle. We all vibrate within these systems and color can add to, detract from, or compliment all of the functions of our organs, and tissues. When our bodies become out of balance disease can invade. As each color enjoys its own frequency the resultant vibration can heal, balance and cure our physical or emotional system and bring them into proper balance.
Every color within the broad spectrum enjoys its own frequency. Colors have a unique effect on the human body at all levels; physical, mental and emotional. Color Therapy enables and provides all colors to envelop the electromagnetic body, it’s energy field, and in turn, transfers energy into the physical body. Simply, light is energy. The phenomenon of color is a direct product of the intersection where energy and matter meet. Visible colors can be broken into many frequencies and they all vibrate at a differing rate; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, turquoise and purple. Varying colors generate differing electrical responses. Each of these powerful electric and magnetic impulses activates biochemical and hormonal processes within the human body. In turn, all the various colors bathing the body excite or reduce the body’s systems and organ functions. Its really all about maintaining a healthy balance between frequencies; healthy color balance equates to a healthy physical body and comparable balance.
Specifically, certain colors energize, fluctuate and vibrate every part of our body affecting us in particular ways depending on the color used. The color red exudes warmth. For example, the color frequencies from orange are warm, happy, cheerful, and non-constricting. Orange stimulates creative thinking and encourages enthusiasm. Yellow aids in strengthening the mind and calming nerves.
The color green reflects earth and nature. This color affects all conditions of the heart and also aids in lowering blood pressure. Turquoise increases intuition and sensitivity. It is a color which reduces stress, improves skin, can be a natural antiseptic and generally tones the whole body. Blue is cool, electric, antiseptic and cools inflammation. It relieves fevers, high blood pressure, headaches, anger, aggression, and bleeding.
Purple is a transformational color. It slows heartbeats, stimulates the spleen, and aids in boosting the immune system. Red exudes warmth. It brings energy and stimulation adding to heart and blood circulation. Red helps when you are fatigued, heals colds, strengthens passivity and is generally good for all the organs and senses.
Scientifically color light therapy is a method of treatment utilizing the visible spectrum, or colors, of electromagnetic radiation to cure disease. It is centuries old and has been employed successfully. However, until the past few decades, chromotherapy was not validated by science or scientists due to lack of technology. Currently, many tests have validated its effectiveness and there is much literature available substantiating its practicality. Sufficient published material exists providing how a complete system of color therapy aids in the healing of the body utilizing the relationship between the human body and colors.
After much research, I realized the reason why so many employ this color light therapy into their daily routine and also why it is such an added benefit when used in conjunction with far infrared sauna therapy. When using the seven different types of light and focusing on an area of concern or just utilizing the varying colors generally, a very powerful and safe healing modality can be realized. Together with far infrared therapy, the direct effect on a person’s physical and psychological condition can be profoundly successful.
