Chromotherapy, also called Color therapy, involves the use of different colors and different colored lights to heal many health problems. It is believed in Chromotherapy that whenever our part of body lacking in energy level is treated with a particular color or light, it can get refreshment and new power. It is experienced that different colors have different powers to heal health problems. For eg. red color can increase blood circulation and white and blue are having tendency to cool down the blood. The yellow is reducing muscular pain and inflammation.

History of Chromotherapy

This type of treatment is originated from Ayurveda in India. The traditional form of Chinese treatment believes that each body organ is associated with each color. In ancient days Egyptians built a special type of rooms called solarium which has pans of glass in various colors. The patient would get treatment by letting them under the sunlight in different colors. The different colored glasses were used to cure different body complaints. In another method of chromotherapy, different colored bottles are used to fill water and let them in sunlight for some time. Water from a particular colored bottle will be used for the treatment.

Different Chakras and Their Colors

Spiritual Science says that there are seven chakras placed along the spine of our body. Each chakra is associated with the particular organ or system of our body. Each chakra has its own color and if the colors become imbalanced, a lot of health problems will arise in that particular body. Chromotherapy is based on this chakra concept.

Let us see seven chakras and their corresponding colors. First chakra is located at the base of spine. Red color is associated with this chakra which has power to inrease blood circulation and stimulate body and mind. The second chakra is lying in our pelvis area and its color is orange which has power to heal lungs problem and increase energy levels. The third one is placed near stomach area and it is associated with the yellow color which can stimulate nerves in our body. Fourth one is associated with heart and its color is green. And fifth one is lying on throat and connected with blue that can help come out of illnesses and throat problems. The lower part of our forehead is sixth chakra which is associated with indigo and this color is useful to alleviate many skin problems. Finally the seventh chakra is on the top of head and its color is violet.

    This is interesting and informative. I was just reading that we should eat certain colored foods for our different chakras.

    Then here in the US, a shower head has been invented which is supposed to offer some color therapy while you shower.

    I've bookmarked your hub so I can return to it.

    Thank you!
