Colour therapy is a wonderful, fun and non-invasive therapy which can help to improve overall wellbeing and health.
Colour has been utilised for its healing properties since the times of Ancient Civilisations, including the Ancient Chinese, Egyptians and Greeks. These Ancient ones knew that they could harness the power of colour to influence their mood, emotions and their wellbeing.
Research has shown that colour can have a dramatic effect on our thoughts, mood and feelings. We each feel attracted to different colours at different times, depending upon what we need. For example, we may enjoy working in a white and blue room during the summer, as blue is relaxing and cooling. In contrast, in the winter, this room may feel stark and cold, as we begin to crave bright, warm colours in the colder weather.
Each colour of the colour spectrum can be utilised to
balance our energy vibrations. Some colours are used to
help relaxation and sleep, some to energise and some are
good for general overall health. It can be seen that through
careful consultation, the correct colour combination can be
chosen for your particular need.
What happens during a treatment?
Firstly, a thorough consultation is completed to ensure that Colour Therapy is suitable for you, although there are no contra-indications and this is a treatment than anyone can enjoy. Colour therapy is not intended to diagnose or replace medical care, but can safely be enjoyed alongside any current medication. Colour therapy is a wonderful therapy that can easily be incorporated into your daily life at home, really allowing you the freedom to make positive changes to your life and health. During the consultation we will decide what you would like to focus on during the session. This could be energy levels, mental or physical health or to improve sleep or relaxation. We will then choose suitable colours which correspond to your needs. Once the colours are selected, you lie or sit, fully clothed on a couch or chair and coloured scarves and crystals are placed on your energy centres, or "chakras," as shown in the image below. I will also utilise the colour torch on specific parts of your body and if you wish, we can pick coloured oracle cards for additional guidance or use colour visualisations and breathing.
How will I feel during the treatment?
Everyone experiences colour healing differently, some people are not aware of anything
specific during the treatment, but may enjoy a sense of peace and calm. Other people
may notice warmth, cool, tingling or they may notice colours behind their eyes as
they relax. There is no right way to experience colour therapy, but most of my
clients fall asleep and feel relaxed and calm throughout their session.
Can I combine treatments?
Of course! These are the best types of treatment in my opinion. Colour therapy works wonderfully with crystal therapy, Reiki, and Bach Flower Remedies. It can also be enjoyed as part of a colour reflexology treatment.
