Chromotherapy – The Health Benefits

Chromotherapy is a complimentary medicine using colours to create health and harmony in the body and mind. Colour and light have been utilised by healers for thousands of years. Colour therapy has roots in Indian medicine, ancient Egyptian culture (light through coloured glass) and traditional Chinese healing. Chromotherapy benefits include physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing.

We’re heading into autumn and as many as 20% of people now suffer from the ‘winter blues’, a very real condition called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Many SAD sufferers find light therapy helps to alleviate symptoms, but others are unable to use bright light therapy for various medical reasons. Adding Chromotherapy (or colour therapy) to your Insignia shower can help you to address what it is lacking in your body.


Our bodies need the sun’s light to survive. That light can be broken down into a seven-colour spectrum. An imbalance of any of those colours can manifest itself in physical and mental symptoms. Colour therapy works by ‘topping-up’ the light via the full spectrum of visible light, each colour concentrating on a different area of your well-being.

Red is believed to increase the pulse, raise blood pressure and increase the rate of breathing. Red would be applied to support circulatory and nervous functions.

Pink acts as a cleanser, strengthening veins and arteries. Pink activates and eliminates impurities in the blood stream.

Orange activates and eliminates localised fat. Assists with asthma and bronchitis.

Yellow has been used to purify the skin, help with indigestion, strengthen the nervous system, treat glandular diseases, hepatitis and lymphatic disorders and assist metabolism. Yellow strengthens the body and activates internal tissues.

Green is associated with harmony, provides a neutral, positive calming effect. Green provides anti-infectious, anti-septic and regenerative stimulation.

Blue promotes relaxation and calm, has tranquilizing qualities often used to relieve headaches and migraines, colds, stress, nervous tension, rheumatism, stomach pains, muscle cramps and liver disorders. Blue is thought to have a positive effect on all kinds of pain.

Purple is used to calm the nervous system, soothe organs and relax muscles and has meditative qualities. Often used to treat conditions of the lymphatic system and spleen, as well as urinary disorders and psychosis.
