Harnessing the Power of Colour: An Introduction to Chromotherapy

Did you know colour therapy (also known as chromotherapy) can have a powerful impact on your well-being?

Chromotherapy is a form of health treatment that uses different colours of lights within ReGen’s infrared saunas and Oxygen Pod to create a wide range of health benefits. This therapeutic approach has been used across different cultures for thousands of years, with its roots traced back to ancient civilisations in Egypt, India and China.

It wasn’t until the late 19th century that chromotherapy began to gain attention within Western therapeutic practices. Today, chromotherapy continues to grow in use and awareness and is widely recognised as a common complementary therapy in alternative medicine. It’s a crucial part of various practices, including saunas and light therapy.

How does chromotherapy work?

Chromotherapy works on the principle that colours act as a mood trigger, interplaying with light as an integral element of our everyday experience. Our bodies and their various systems can respond to different colours on physical, emotional, and mental levels, creating therapeutic benefits when these responses are harnessed. 

This is due to a number of factors, including:

  • The psychological and emotional correlations between certain colours and particular moods/emotions: For example, warm colours, such as reds and oranges, are often subconsciously associated with energy, stimulation, and a sense of vitality. Cool colours, such as blues and greens, are commonly associated with balance and relaxation. These subconscious associations are used in chromotherapy to promote specific emotional states, creating the desired outcomes linked to each individual colour’s impact.
  • The effect of light on the body:. As different colours of light can penetrate the skin to varying depths, this results in a varied level of interaction with cells and tissues. Light therapy via chromotherapy can be utilised to influence cellular metabolism, circulation, and the release or stimulation of particular neurotransmitters or hormones within the body, creating specific therapeutic benefits. 

As a result of these therapeutic outcomes, chromotherapy is often integrated into various wellness practices. Saunas and specialised treatment rooms, as well as light therapy devices, can provide a simple way to access the benefits of chromotherapy regularly, promoting a sense of well-being on a mental, physical and emotional level.

The benefits of chromotherapy

This natural form of therapy can be a powerful tool to integrate into your wellness practice, providing myriad benefits for both short-term and long-term health outcomes.

Chromotherapy can have a significant impact on mental health, with research identifying its ability to ease depression and anxiety. With the ability to improve sleep and boost energy, regular chromotherapy can also help to restore balance to your everyday routine, encouraging natural energy levels while offering powerful anti-ageing properties.
