Spa’s That Color You Beautiful
Color Therapy In Spas:
The healing use of color and light can be manifested in a variety of ways, ranging from exposure to light from colored lamps, color baths, and cloth of certain colors worn on reflex points around the body to the use of color cards and guided visualizations where a healing color enters the body via the breath.
LumaLight 2000, with multiple color lenses, is a tool resembling a flashlight being used to enhance the effect of Reiki, aromatherapy sessions, and reflexology.
Color therapy may also take the form of Colorpuncture, a system founded by German therapist and naturopath Peter Mandel, which focuses concentrated beams of colored light at precise acupuncture meridian points. Phytobiodermie’s Chromopuncteur treatments focus beams of intense color on chakra points, with the purpose of stimulating the body’s own innate healing powers.
