Colour therapy is a complimentary therapy dating back thousands of years, that can achieve good health and well being. There are seven main centres in the body that correspond to the seven colours of the rainbow. Each spectrum colour is simply light of varying wavelengths and because of this each colour has its own particular energy.

So here are the basics of how colour therapy affects the inner running of the body. Each of the seven centres of the body has a chakra which is like a spiral of energy,  and each of these spirals relate to each other. Each wheel needs to run smoothly with the others to ensure there is a balance of these energy’s i.e the smooth synchronized running of these wheels achieves good health and well being. Colour therapy can help to re balance these wheels and ensure smooth running, by applying the appropriate colour to the body.
