Apr 17, 2008
Chromotherapy is sometimes called colour therapy or light therapy and is based upon a premise that certain colours are infused with healing properties. In the early Egyptian culture the subject of a relationship between light and healing was a secret only available to the priests. They used this information to heal with colour in various ways and even considered it a religious duty to bathe in the spectral light of the sun.

Light therapy is a way of treating people with colour to bring their bodies and emotions back into harmony thereby restoring health and wellbeing. This type of therapeutic healthcare could be described as a science which uses different colours to change vibrations of imbalance to vibrations of health.

Colorology as it is sometimes known uses the seven colours of the rainbow to promote healing in the mind and body. Every colour has a specific beneficial effect on our wellbeing. By selecting a colour to match the 'How you feel at the moment mood' the beneficial effects can be felt in the bathroom available to everyone either by lighting in the bath, shower or bathroom lighting.
