What is Colour Therapy?

Colour is the by product of the spectrum of light, as it is reflected or absorbed, as perceived by the human eye and processed by the human brain.

The world is full of light. Visible light is made of seven wavelength groups. These are the colours you see in a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The reddish colours are the long wavelengths. The greenish colours are the mid-size wavelengths. The bluish colour are the short wavelengths

When light hits objects, some of the wavelengths are absorbed and some are reflected, depending on the materials in the object. The reflected wavelengths are what we perceive as the object’s colour.

Our eyes are the input channels, if you will, for this light. One portion of the eye is called the retina and it contains four types of light sensors. First are the rods, which record brightness and darkness and from which we “see” a sort of coarse sketch of the world. Next are three types of cones, each one optimized to absorb a different spectrum range of visible light. One set of cones absorbs long wavelengths, the reds. Another absorbs mid-size wavelengths, the greens. The third absorbs short wavelengths, the blues. Together, these rods and cones gather the information that our brain then processes into one combined image. 

What this all means is that colour is a function of light and biology—no two people see colour exactly the same or feel its vibration the same. In Colour Therapy we use Colour to balance the energy system or Chakra of the body, by adding a deficit of Colour, or adding compliementary Colours, we bring the body back into homeostasis.
