What is Chromotherapy?
People have been drawn to using this form of solar energy as a healing modality since antiquity. As a pure therapy of nature, it has evolved throughout history for its awe-inspiring uses. Chromotherapy is a term used to describe the use of colored light as spiritual nourishment.
A journey in time
Heliotherapy, meaning sun—therapy (naturally!), is the act of curing sickness by sun exposure, was born in ancient Greece. In ancient Egypt, Greece and China “color halls” or rooms were painted different colors in an attempt to treat ailments. They hung crystal gems in the windows of their healing rooms to separate the nutritional potential of the sun’s rays. Color light was part of ancient wellness regimes, and only in the last few decades is it regaining recognition once again.
Now,, flashing forward to present day—at the speed of light of course—there is ongoing research to support the theory and evidence of this ancient art and explain why and how it works. By working with chromotherapy, you have the opportunity to discover the potential of this universal sunny source.
Under the rainbow skies
The cooling shades of light under the starry night skies reside in the violet and blue range. And, at the other end of the spectrum our daytime colors are warming shades of red, orange and yellow. Under our sky blue skies, is green the great equalizer to keep harmony in nature.
