About Chromotherapy

Color is simply a form of visible light, of electromagnetic energy. All the primary colors reflected in the rainbow carry their own unique healing properties. The sun alone is a wonderful healer! Just imagine what life would be like without sunshine. It has been proven that lack of sunlight contributes to depression for some people. Our attraction to certain colors may very well signal areas where we are imbalanced. Understanding why certain colors effect us favorably while others bring about negative feelings helps us along our healing journeys. We absorb colour via the skin and the eyes. Thus, the colour of the clothes we wear and the colours in our environment, all have an effect on our mood and feeling of wellbeing. People who are either colour-blind or cannot see at all, will still benefit from colour energies - even if they do not see them in the usual way.

A therapist trained in color therapy applies light and color in the form of tools, visualization, or verbal suggestion to balance energy in the areas of our bodies that are lacking vibrance, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental. It is best used as a supportive treatment in addition with other natural methods of healing. Every substance on Earth has colour.Even the rays cast on Earth by celestial bodies contains colour in the form of white light.The rays of Sun contains seven different colours-Violet,Indigo, Blue, Yellow, Orange and Red.These are the natural colours which are highly beneficial for maintaining health and for the treatment of diseases.

According to Dr. Babbit, a well known authority in the field of Chromotherapy, “Sunlight is the principal curative agent in nature’s laboratory, and where sunlight cannot enter,disease does.” The seven colours of sunlight have their own characteristics and effects.Sunlight plays an important role in the recovery of chronic diseases. The colour of the light we see is determined by its wavelength. The wavelengths of the seven rainbow colours resonate with the seven main energy centres/chakras of the body.

Who can use colour therapy

Colour therapy can be shown to help on a physical level, which is perhaps easier to quantify. However, there are deeper issues around colours on the psychological and spiritual levels. Colour therapy can help us with emotional, mental, spiritual or physical issues. It is truly a natural, holistic and non-invasive therapy that has no side-effects, and can be used for adults, children/babies or animals. It can also be used along with any other medication - whether conventional or complementary.


There aren’t any known contraindications as such, but it is advisable to use the colours after the complete evaluation of the health of the client.

Please be aware that no complementary therapy should be considered as an alternative to professional medical advice. If you are taking medication, you should first consult the prescribing professional before you stop taking it.
