Color Therapy or Color Healing is the use of color in various forms for the purpose of creating balance and health in the human system. The human system includes not only the physical body, but also the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects (PEMS). Working with the PEMS is referred to as wholistic medicine.
Some of the forms of Color Therapy are:
COLORPUNCTURE and SAMASSATI COLOR THERAPY
Colorpuncture and Samassati Color Therapy use color light on meridians and acupoints. chakras. in th e aura. and on various reflex zones. Just as needling (acupuncture) or applying pressure (acupressu re and Shiatsu) to meridians and acupoints, color in the form of light. crystals. essential oils. etc. can also affect the electromagnetic circuitry of the human system.
Samassati Color Therapy is rooted in Colorpuncture using the techniques of Colorpuncture. The difference is that with Samassati Color Therapy, there is less emphasis on following the techniques by rote. and more about sensing the effects of specific colors. listening to one's intuition regarding color and placement, and feeling the effects of color with all the various energy pathways of the client. It's learning about Color and Light viscerally .
CRYSTAL HEALING or CRYSTAL THERAPY
Crystal Healing or Crystal Therapy is the laying on of stones to restore balance to the chakra system and heal the physical body, emotions, mental thoughts and the spirit. Stones are placed based on color, quality, sacred geometry.
I graduated from Katrina Raphaell's Crystal Academy of Advanced Healing Arts in 1
991. To this day, I've not found any training that comes close to its depth of information and quality of experiential exercises. The training was a deeply personal journey for me, and I was easily able to use the techniques I learned immediately with my clients.
The Crystal Academy teaches the ancient art of laying of crystals and stones on the body for healing. You also learn about the healing properties of many crystals and stones and the history of Crystal Healing. Mostly, the training is experiential, because the best way to learn is by giving and receiving the work and then sharing the experience with others.
COLOR SILKS THERAPY
Another form of Color Therapy uses colored silks on the body. primarily over the chakra centers .
Also being natural fabrics, cotton and wool carry a healing vibration
as well, but silk carries the highest frequency vibration of any natural cloth. Because of this, colored silks have the ability to radiate their signature color frequency to the physical body and energy field (aura) .
The energy of silk is soft yet potent. allowing one to soak up the color frequency. One of the beauties of Color Silks Therapy is that you can place an entire sheet of color over the entire body. or place an single color on a particular part of the body .
HYDRO COLOR THERAPY
Hydro Color Therapy (also called Hydrochromotherapy), which incorporates water and color, is a very effective way of transmitting color onto and into the physical body. Water is well known to be a powerful conductor of energy, so it is an natural choice for transmitting color energy into the body.
Two of the ways color and water can be used are: Infusing color into filtered water via the sun for internal consumption, and color light with a shower or tub.
Bringing color energies into the body with filtered, color-charged water is a wonderful experience. All you need to do is find some colored glass bottles that are non-toxic. NEVER USE PLASTIC BOTTLES as they contain toxic substances that are released especially with heat. Fill the glass color bottle with pure filtered or distilled water and place the bottle in the sunlight for at least a day. Store in a cool place until you are ready to drink the water.
Drink some blue-charged water before going to bed to help relax the nerves and mental chatter. Feeling depressed and listless? Drink some red-charged water for energy and vitality. Yellow-charged water can help with detoxification. Turquoise-charged water is like swimming in a tropical paradise; it brings calm and playfulness. Orange-charged water has the ability to act as a aphrodisiac, stimulating our sexual desire. Violet-charged water is useful when we would like to calm the mind during meditation. While green-charged water is an overall harmonizer and balancer.
LED lights are now being widely used in bathtubs, showers, hot tubs, jacuzzis, swimming pools, etc.
The color light is beamed into the water, which allows your body to take in the color energy through the skin. Very much like tonating color light on the skin with a color light instrument, water acts as an amplifier of the color energy completely saturating the body.
