Colour therapy uses the idea that colour can effect us physically,
mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Colour therapists have
different views on the theory and practice of colour therapy.
One particular view uses colour to rebalance our own energy centers
or chakras that are said to become drained of energy through
our life style, illness and many other things. Other therapists
consider your aura, which is made up of colours, by observing
your aura using a Kilner screen. This is sheets of glass with
a cyanine dye between them. When you are observed behind this
the therapist can identify the parts of your body, mental and
emotional state's that are lacking in health.
Colour therapists who are concerned with your chakras use
the seven colours of light spectrum. These represent our seven
chakras. Colour therapy re-energises and balances these chakras
to encourage our bodies own healing process. When the chakras
are stimulated by the seven colours of light it is said to enhance
our own healing capacity.
The initial consultation will indicate what colours need to
be used. Colour therapists will ask about your medical history
and lifestyle. The treatment will include the application of
colour, this depends upon the style of the individual therapist.
Some therapists may use meditation with colour, others may use
colour breathing, while some use coloured light placed upon the
body, usually with a light box and filters. Treatments also includes
changing your diet to include certain coloured foods that have
specific reactions to the body.
Drinking rainbow water that has been left in the sunlight
and placed in coloured bottles, then left to absorb these colours
is said when drunk to provide you the specific energies that
you are lacking.
Colour therapy is for everyone and is a relaxing experience.
