How Does Colour Therapy work?

Different colours are associated with different physical and emotional aspects of the body. When the energy circles of the body are imbalance, it leads to emotional disorders and physical ailments. These imbalances can be corrected by applying the corresponding colour to the affected part. A colour therapist analyses the patient in order to determine the areas of imbalances energy in the body. He or she then applies colour in the form of light, tools, visualisation or verbal suggestions to correct these imbalances.
Colour Therapy may be carried out by placing coloured objects such as silk scarves, solarized water, colour meditation or breathing techniques, or by direct application of coloured light on the affected parts. In addition to direct application of colour to bring about therapeutic relief, a colour therapist will also advise you on the colours to incorporate into your everyday life. In this manner, the beneficial effects of colour therapy are propagated long past the session of treatment is over.
