Our bodies need the sun’s light to live. And that light can actually be broken down into seven specific colours on a spectrum. Each colour on the spectrum possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration can be related to different physical states. And an imbalance of any colour can manifest itself in physical and mental symptoms.
Chromotherapy is the science of using colours to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Working on various energy points, chromotherapy helps to balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light with each colour addressing a distinct need.
At Vital Aspects, chromotherapy is a free, standard addition to any Sunlighten mPulse Infrared Therapy sauna session to enhance and complement your treatment.
