Even if you don’t think about it, we are all drawn to colour and it connects with us on conscious and unconscious levels. Colour is a language that speaks to us. It has the power to transform our mood and our emotions. Think about how you feel when surrounded by cool blues or fresh green colours. You feel relaxed, right? Other colours have different frequencies and qualities and create a different response.
You may already know that colour is light and energy.
But what is colour therapy?
Colour therapy can mean different things to different people. It may be known as chromotherapy, which is colour displayed in the form of light. There are also ways colour can be used that don’t involve light beams or a ‘light source’. There are properties of colour whixh can affect mood, and even physical and mental well being.
