Colour Therapy

Colour therapy can be used to help many conditions. In colour therapy, we are treating our patient with frequency to rebalance the chakra(s). Colour is light of varying wavelengths; accordingly, each colour has a frequency (a particular wavelength and energy associated with that colour). The body has seven main chakras resonating energy that correspond with the seven colour spectrums: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. As energy centres of the body, all seven chakras need to be balanced for optimal health and wellbeing. Colour therapy applies the appropriate colour to the body to stimulate and/or rebalance the energy in the chakra(s).

Did You Know?

Colour vision has been found in most species studied for the presence of colour cones, according to Drs. Myelis and Coulter in Dukes’ Physiology of Domestic Animals.

Dogs, cats, swine, many birds, ground squirrels, mantid shrimp, lizards and frogs have colour vision. Colour vision in all studied species requires at least two visual pigments with both overlapping luminance and light absorption. Humans have three colour cones containing visual pigment with an absorption spectrum in red, green and blue. According to the Young-Helmholtz trichome theory, the overlap of the absorption of colour with the individual rods allows humans to see the colours we see.

Dogs and squirrels seem to possess only two photopic visual pigments and are able to see different wavelengths. There is a suspicion that cats possess four photopic visual pigments.
