What is Chromotherapy?
With it's roots in an ancient Indian medicine called Ayurveda, chromotherapy is based on the theory that certain colours are infused with healing energies. The therapy uses the seven colours of the rainbow to promote balance and healing in the body and mind. Colour therapy, as it is sometimes known, was also prevelant in ancient Egyptian and Chinese Traditional Medicine.
Which therapeutic effects does each colour possess?
Violet promotes enlightenment, revelation, and spiritual awakening.
Holistic healthcare providers use violet to soothe organs, relax muscles, and calm the nervous system.
Indigo is also sedative and calming. It is said to promote intuition. Indigo may be useful in controlling bleeding and abscesses.
Blue promotes communication and knowledge. It eliminates toxins, and is used to treat liver disorders and jaundice.
Green is calming, and is used by Ayurvedic practitioners to promote healing of ulcers.
It is said to have antiseptic, germicide, and antibacterial properties and is sometimes used by holistic colour therapists to treat bacterial infections.
Because it is located in the middle of the colour spectrum, green is associated with balance.
Yellow is a sensory stimulant associated with wisdom and clarity.
Yellow is thought to have decongestant and antibacterial properties, and is useful in stimulating both the digestive system and the lymphatic system.
Orange promotes pleasure, enthusiasm, and sexual stimulation. Ayurvedic practitioners believe it has antibacterial properties
and may be useful in easing digestive system discomforts (e.g., flatulence, cramps).
Red promotes energy, empowerment, and stimulation. Physically, it is thought to improve circulation and stimulate red blood cell production.
If I have a specific ailment, is there a colour therapy that can be used to treat it?
While colour therapy may be an effective treatment for promoting relaxation and overall well-being, and as an adjunct, or complementary therapy in treating some disorders and illnesses, individuals with serious chronic or acute health problems should not rely solely on the therapy for treatment. Anyone with a chronic or acute health concern should seek the advice of a qualified medical practitioner.
So how do the chromotherapy lights work?
Using an electronic control pad the bather can either select an individual colour for an intense session or choose to have the lights cycle through the spectrum for an all round experience.
Is it safe to have these lights in the bath?
Yes. The lights are waterproof and designed to be used safely underwater.
If the chromotherapy light is turned on by accident, will it damage the bath?
No. Unlike a traditional underwater light, the chromotherapy lights are comprised
of tiny L.E.D.'s (Light Emitting Diode) which do not give off heat.
Do I need water level sensing to prevent accidental "dry running?"
No, these lights can run perfectly safely both underwater or in the dry.
