How the use of Chromotherapy (or Colour Light Therapy) in your Hot Tub can help heal your body and mind…Colour plays a major role in setting a particular mood or state of mind as it affects one’s feelings and emotions. Some colors help flatter and compliment us so we naturally feel more confident when wearing them. By choosing a colour palette that suits your personality it can actually help you perform better in your personal and professional life. Similarly, Chromotherapy (or colour light therapy), when used for healing the body, utilises colours based on their electrical and heating properties to help stimulate the senses, the body and the mind through the use of coloured lights under the water of your hot tub.
Colour can work in harmony with our bodies with each one having a different effect on how they appease and nurture us. For example, dark-violet helps to cool and soothe the nerves whilst red-orange can excite or heat the blood.
Other colour examples of chromotherapy for healing the body are as follows:
Yellow – focuses on the mind to make one feel more euphoric and optimistic by awakening mental inspiration, which in turn stimulates higher mentality. When looking to aid health problems, yellow is used for conditions of the stomach, liver, and intestines.
Blue – helps to kill bacteria so can help reduce acne breakouts and inflammation in the skin. It is also used to help reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety and due to its cooling properties it can help people with high blood pressure (consult your doctor before using a hot tub) and migraine suffers.
Green – an instant mood lifter due to its vivid, natural properties. Individuals who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) would benefit from introducing green into their life.
Purple – stimulates the spleen and white blood cells as well as slows down an overactive heart. It promotes a true sense of serenity, reduces worries and detoxifies.
White – the most common color to be used in color therapy as it uses the three primary colours (Red, Green, & Blue), making it easy to receive the benefits from all the colours. It is said that white light can also increase vitamin D levels.
The spectrum of colour usage however is endless so it’s safe to say that you will find a rainbow recipe perfect for you.
