A Closer Look at Colour Therapy
Colour therapy uses colour and light to treat a variety of health conditions; by altering the colours around us overall health and well being can be improved.
Colour therapy can help with many conditions but in particular, stress, anxiety, behavioural disorders, derpression and it may be useful after illness or surgery related conditions.
Colour Therapists use a range of techniques which may include guided visualisations, using special coloured lighting, draping the patient in coloured sheets, crystals, colour therapy machines and may even advise eating foods of a certain colour and drinking water that has been bathed in a certain colour.
Just a few examples of how light can help health issues - the winter months can often bring the blues, Seasonal Affective Disorder is readily cured by sitting in front of bright light (10,000lux) for about half an hour morning and evening. Until the 1960s babies born prematurely suffered a life-threatening condition of jaundice, which may have necessitated a blood transfusion, but it is now known that all is required is exposure to light. This cure results from the chemical breakdown of bilirubin by full spectrum or blue light. Dyslexia sufferers can now read more comfortably with tinted glasses or overlays; black and white is often too harsh for them to see clearly.
