Chromatherapy and the Art of Healing Colors

Monday, October 8th, 2012

How are you feeling today? Tickled pink, a little blue, or perhaps green with envy? When moods are so tied to color, it’s no wonder chromatherapy, or color therapy, has become so popular in the home spa environment. In a previous post we discussed the benefits of aromatherapy in the steam shower. Today we’ll explore the effect of color healing on the body and how it can be combined with aromatherapy and steam for maximum relaxation.

Derived from the theories of Indian Ayurvedic healers, chromatherapy is based on the body’s seven chakras. When these “energy centers” become unaligned, color and light are used to restore the balance where it’s lacking— whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Each chakra is tied to a location in the body and possesses a corresponding color and physical/emotional association:

Violet/Top of Head: Meditative. Soothes organs, relaxes muscles and calms the nervous system.

Indigo/Forehead: Perception. Promotes intuition.

Blue/Throat: Tranquility. Relieves headaches, migraines, stomach pains and muscle cramps.

Green/Heart: Harmony. Promotes relaxation and detoxification.

Yellow/ Stomach: Freedom. Assists the metabolism, strengthens the nervous system and combats glandular disease.

Orange/Pelvis: Alertness. Helps depression, discontent and pessimism.

Red/Lower Body: Courage. Increases blood pressure and circulation.

Chromatherapy is heightened when paired with aromatherapy and the power of steam. For relaxation, it’s recommended to combine violet chromatherapy with the soothing scents of lavender and jasmine. For a more stimulating effect, the aroma of rosemary and red chromatherapy are recommended. For general strength and wellness, blue chromatherapy mixed with the scents of bergamot, rose, or tea tree oil is ideal, depending on your symptoms. And for mental wellness, indigo chromatherapy and jasmine, lavender or rose are recommended.

In need of a steam shower upgrade? ThermaSol offers the Serenity Light and Music System, which produces full spectrum, high-intensity light and sound. Just add a few drops of aromatherapy essential oil into the steamhead reservoir before your steam session and you are ready to relax.

Let chromatherapy color your world.

The Hue in You: Chromatherapy

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Color is part of everything we do. It determines what clothes we pair together, how we prepare food (think rare vs. medium well) – even whether or not we stop our cars at an intersection! We have an emotional relationship with color, and the hue of things often determines how we feel about them – even subconsciously.

Chromatherapy – the science of healing through color – harnesses our incredible connection with the spectrum of shades, and helps us to achieve optimum health and relaxation through the most basic of all mediums: light. And when the world of chromatherapy meets the world of spa, the possibilities are endless. Imagine using color to relax your mind, the same way that you use water, steam, and temperature to relax your body – all at the same time!

Using Chakras & Chromatherapy to Heal

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

Using Chromatherapy or “Color Therapy” in your home or at the spa can be one alternative form of medicine that may just help you ease pain and heal your body. Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician of and is considered one of the most prolific figure in the history of medicine. Otherwise known as the “Father of Western Medicine”, Hippocrates was well aware of color’s holistic powers which is why he painted his treatment rooms in healing and used different colored ointments. The ancient Indian art of the chakras uses color therapy to heal by targeting the problem area with the appropriate therapy according to the chakra.

These days through the use of bathtubs, showers and steam showers one can produce these multi-color experiences, focusing on specific colors to help heal or relieve pain for a specific area on the body. By using different color spectrums on specified body parts, chromatherapy – dictated by the chakras – uses the bathing experience to help heal.

To integrate color into your bathing experience, the Serenity Light and Music System is one of the best lighting systems on the market, as it can produce a full color spectrum and features that even change colors to adjust to one’s mood. The technological components are mounted behind a solid brass ceiling grill. The system can come with a remote control for the ultimate in comfort and convenience during your steam bath experience as well.

Here is one chart that may help you target the location on your body or the system that you are hoping to heal:

Color Chakra Location Function System
Red First Base of the spine Stimulation Circulatory system
Orange Second Pelvis Energy levels Lungs
Yellow Third Solar plexus Purification Blood
Green Fourth Heart Soothing Heart
Blue Fifth Throat Illness and pain Throat
Indigo Sixth Forehead Mental wellness Skin
Violet Seventh Top of the head Relaxation Head

Three Holistic Healing Methods -
Hydrotherapy, Chromatherapy, and Aromatherapy

Circle of RelaxationThe bathing experience can be brought full circle with the addition of an innovative steam shower to your master bath or home spa. With this technology, you will be able to experience the ultimate in relaxation by enjoying all three Holistic Therapies during one session. Hydrotherapy immediately relaxes you through the power of steam, while chromatherapy evokes your ideal mood and aromatherapy invigorates the senses. The combination of these natural holistic remedies refresh your mind and body and provide you with a daily measure of tranquility. Chromatherapy features can be found with ThermaSol’s Deluxe or Premium Control steam shower packages. These systems put seven chakras of chromatherapy at your finger tips.

Hydrotherapy: For centuries, people have resorted to the restorative power of water to soothe pain and remedy illness. Hydrotherapy is the use of steam and vapor to promote ultimate relaxation. Conventional uses of hydrotherapy help to stimulate circulation, tone body tissues, alleviate pain, relax nerves and enhance overall well being.

Chromatherapy: Delight in the power of color. This alternative healing method uses color and light to balance energy wherever the body is lacking. The underlying principle is that certain colors, or the absence of color can affect your body and mood. Therefore, implement colors that evoke the specific emotions you would like to conjure. Soothing blue, meditative violet and harmonious green are the perfect complement to your bathing session.

Aromatherapy: Let nature calm your body and mind. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils which are sourced from aromatic plants and flowers that stimulate the sense of smell and are absorbed through the skin. Rejuvenating scents are believed to improve mood and promote wellness.

Employ all three therapies for the ultimate in relaxation!
