Colour Therapy, or Chromatherapy, is a holistic, or ‘energy’ therapy. This therapy uses the energy of light to improve or balance your body’s energy centres or chakras. Optimal health can be achieved when there is a perfect balance between your body, mind and spirit.

Colour Therapy uses the different wavelengths of coloured light to enhance and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Colour is introduced and applied to the body via external colour applications. You can use fabrics, wall coverings, paints and so on, externally to assist your balance. Also, you will benefit from internal methods, through the imagining of colour through breathing or visualisation.

What will I learn?

We’ll start with the history of colour therapy through the ages. Looking into the psychological effects of colours and the Visible Spectrum (What we see!) and Seasonal adjustment disorder – effect on colour? Next, it’s down to basics! The basis of colour therapy on the balance of the body and the healing properties of colour. Now we’re beginning to get a bit ‘out there’ as we examine our subtle bodies – the aura!

Module 3 will see us focus on the Chakra System colours. First, we will answer the question on how auras are be seen, their colours and their significance. Next, we’ll see how colour therapy will balance the chakra. Finally, we are going to get proactive and demonstrate therapeutic uses of colour in daily holistic health. We will also guide you through visualisation and colour meditation and the benefits of solarised water!

Colour Therapy can support many aspects of energy, but if the negativity seems too much, you might want to explore other courses that will complement this, like helping people in their life choices, Check out Life Coaching Skills or Creating a Positive Mindset.
