Color therapy is one of the oldest forms of medicine, going back to ancient Egypt and Greece where physicians treated patients in “color healing temples”.
Patients with disorders ranging from emotional to physical were placed in color baths – rooms painted specific colors felt to help heal their ailments. In addition, patients were often placed under skylights to drink in the full spectrum of colors found in natural sunlight.
Today, we have a wide variety of color-healing modalities. When working with large areas of the body, specific color filters are shone over the body for 20-30 minutes or more. The effects are often immediate and long-lasting. For example, a person with low energy can benefit from one of the warmer colors such as red, orange or yellow; a person with too much energy or anxiety would find blue, indigo or violet calming. In working with large areas, silk scarves coded to the specific frequencies of the 7 rainbow colors can be laid directly over the body. The vibrational frequency of that color is then imparted to the physical body via the person’s energy field. For everyday use at home, eyeglasses with colored lenses can be worn for 15-20 minutes a day and will prompt shifts in physical and emotional states. These glasses come in all colors of the rainbow, as well as magenta, turquoise and pink. It is interesting to note that pink eyeglasses were studied and developed to help calm overactive schoolchildren and then were used later in prison populations. In both cases, there was a drop in aggression and overactivity and an increase in calm.
Precise appliations of color can also be applied to specific acupuncture points via a special light pen, similar to acupuncture but without needles.
