Chromotherapy Sauna Benefits: Color Therapy Explained

Chromotherapy Sauna Benefits: Color Therapy Explained

We’re heading into autumn and many people now understand what “winter blues” are, in fact, the very real Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Many SAD sufferers find relief with bright light therapy but others are unable to use bright light therapy for various sensitivity or medical reasons. At Sunlighten, we suggest adding chromotherapy, or color therapy, to regular infrared sauna use to help balance the body’s energy wherever it is lacking. Chromotherapy sauna benefits include physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing.

Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms.

Our bodies need the sun’s light to live. And that light can actually be broken down into a seven color spectrum. An imbalance of any of those colors can manifest itself in physical and mental symptoms. Color therapy works on various energy points to help balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light, each color addressing a distinct need.

Color and light have been utilized by healers for thousands of years. Color therapy possibly has roots in Indian medicine (Ayurveda), ancient Egyptian culture and traditional Chinese healing.

Alternative medicine practitioners who use chromotherapy often relate the seven colors of the color spectrum to specific body areas.*
