Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs depict regular hand and foot care. This honorable practice may have been a precursor to modern reflexology. In the same era, the ancient greek philosopher Hermes–Thoth brought the awareness of how color light was intrinsic to healing and restoring balance of the vital energies in a person.
In hermetic traditions, sun healing was called chromotherapy.
This ancient art captures a solar essence for medicinal, revitalizing, and spiritual purposes.

Now, let’s take an in-depth look at this topic.
#1. The Art of Natural Healing
The ancient Greeks and Romans were alchemical geniuses and knew well of the spiritual and intuitive arts. They were innovators of the solarium, which means a sunroom or sun porch as well as the sundial.
With such a long tradition of these practices, it’s a natural evolution that the two modalities of reflexology and chromotherapy have evolved into a combined practice called: color light reflexology.
Simply put: shine colors upon face, hands, and feet, over reflex zones.
Light baths were used to promote physical and emotional wellbeing.
It was also a place to gather for a meeting of the minds.
#2. An Eternal Solar Gift
Firstly, who questions the sun’s role in the photosynthesis of plant nutrients! It’s one of those things we take for granted. For instance, we intuitively know that it’s just as essential to human survival and internal processes as air, food, and water.
But it’s so much more than that as light plays a role in everything around here. That is to say, all life-forms in nature are finely tuned to light like an instrument as the sun delivers a full spectrum apothecary
Color light therapy enters the mainstream
Chromotherapy in general is known for having certain psychological and therapeutic benefits, So, there must be truth to its use, as it has stood the test of recorded time. In addition, the use of photon energy, meaning colors of light have peaked the interest of researchers worldwide as the value of full spectrum light is common knowledge.
Above all, we have only begun to explore the many branches of light therapies, including low-level laser and red and blue light therapy.
Visible light works like a sundial: It has opposing forces exhibited by its day and night colors.

#3. The Polarity of Visible Light
As with the yin-yang concept in ancient philosophies, the use of opposite forces can balance our Qi (universal energy) for wellness. This principle is the foundation for all modes of energywork.
In addition, this theory naturally applies to the visible spectrum! It’s a fact that color light photons are: energy, a frequency and a vibration. And, in an energy healing practice they are described with either a magnetic or an electric quality. It’s important to note, light’s visible hues have profound psychological and therapeutic attributes to them.
As a result, color light is used to influence the physical through the Qi energy in the meridians, chakras, and aura. Now this theory applies to all living beings including plants and trees in nature! Sunlight’s subtle energies instills a balancing, clearing, calming and raising effect. Now, there’s countless books and research studies on this subject, but here are the basics:
Day and night sun energies
- Daytime colors of red, orange, and yellow are found to have warming and stimulating effects.
- The evening hues of violets and blues can be calming and cooling.
- Green in the middle is the great equalizer for harmony and balancing energy.
There are as many shades to choose from as there are situations that you’ll experience in practice.
#4. The Aura’s an Energy Shield
The truth is, we reside in a complex energy field called the aura, and our skin is a sensory organ that responds to its external stimuli. The skin is made up of cells that can also mirror internal imbalances. This may be expressed outward as a visual appearance of a rash or a blemish for example.
In addition, both the aura and the skin are in constant communication, through telepathy and thought-forms. They also share many functions including self preservation as both are sensory fields. For example, touch therapies and guided color beams can stimulate the skin and aura.

#5. Human Mapping Systems
Acupuncture or acupressure points are access spots into your energy system, which are located along the meridians (energy pathways) of the body. In addition, there are reflex zones that intersect with them. These identified areas are primarily located on the hands, feet, and the face: These are known as reflexology zones.
Throughout the ages, ancient and modern healers and therapists created various maps of these three areas, based on their knowledge and experience in the healing arts. The maps were guidance charts. They depicted the reflex (reflection) zones of the body’s internal systems.
As well, there are variations to ancient mapping systems so it’s important to trust your intuition in selecting your reference charts. Overall this is a supportive modality on your healing journey as we are first and foremost beings of light.

#6. Color Light Professionals
Licensed reflexologists may work alongside wellness professionals to support vitality, maintenance, and recovery programs. A wide range of holistic therapists integrate this modality into their profession.
For the most part, the technique is easy to learn. Once the area is stimulated with touch therapy, a handheld color light emitter is introduced over the area. The intent is to inspire a self-healing or a regulating reaction. All in all, color light reflexology is relaxing and comforting that most people can benefit from.
It stands to reason why the spa industry’s anti-aging and rejuvenating treatments include reflexology techniques and color therapies to tone and clarify the skin. Above all, a wide range of holistic practitioners and therapists know this is an intuitive science and a mystical art.
Needless to say, it’s innate in all of us; it’s also part of our own self discovery process.

#7. The Art of Color Psychology
A few final words on this important subject as it stands to reason that the appearance of this world is dependent on sunlight. For example, the impact of color light upon anything in natures makes it visible to the human eye. All in all, light brings all of nature which includes all living beings, visually apparent to us.
In addition, the coloration of an object also influences our perception and affects our moods, whether subliminally or consciously. Now, there are innumerable (invisible) hues that silently impart messages around us.
The art of color psychology can make branding a product or image a success. Color psychology research and its findings are used in marketing, branding, décor, as well as the fashion industry. As well, color affects our perception and behavior, so it’s no wonder that it is the driving force behind the creation of art and innovation.
