If you’ve ever experienced colour light therapy, you’ll be aware of its subtle and sometimes, not-so-subtle, effects. The experience of PURE colour is something else, and definitely something to try.
My favourite colour light experiences …
The first time I experienced pure colour was via the Monocrom Dome created by Karl Ryberg, a Swedish architect and inventor. The Dome is placed above the head and controlled by the user, unlike many other devices which rely on a therapist or practitioner to deliver the coloured light. You can choose whichever colour you feel drawn to and stay with it as long as you like, before moving to another colour. There is also a Light Mask.
To me, the colour was the most intense I could ever imagine. Colour so rich and dense it was almost tangible. It felt so real I could sense it and feel like I could touch it. It was my first experience of light as therapy and one which left me wanting to find out more about the therapeutic effects of colour and light. Being immersed in colour that I could control was amazing!
A newer device – and one that I’ve also had the chance to use and ‘play with’, is the SensoSphere which also delivers pure monochromatic colour.
The SensoSphere is the latest creation of Canadian physicist, Anadi Martel. This simple and elegant orb emits glowing pure colour and responds to hand movements to change mode. And yes, I did need a ‘how-to-session’ from the inventor himself. The Sensosphere offers technology with four specifically-programmed therapeutic modes for mind and body. Who doesn’t need greater feelings of serenity, positivity and wellness?
If you get the chance, look for a light therapist in your area. See what type of treatments are available and give light therapy a try!
