Colour Therapy

What is Colour therapy?

Colour therapy has been practiced for thousands of years by ancient civilisations and has links with Ayurveda medicine. In China the internal organs are associated with different colours commonly known as Chakras.

This treatment can have a physical, physiological and psychological effect on one. Light influences human behaviour and helps to balance the body. By using 4 different coloured LED lights and pulses, colour therapy can stimulate the basic energy processes in the mitochondria of each cell. Light applied in the correct wavelength and frequency stimulates cell rejuvenation, strengthening the walls of capillaries which leads to improved oxygenation and detoxification. There is an increase in the skin’s ability to retain moisture and a general anti-ageing effect. Each of the four colours used in light therapy red, blue, green and yellow have different wave lengths and different molecular effect.
