Color Healing, Color symbolism and Color therapy has had a long history in many societies and is closely intertwined with cultural associations with various colors. Some modern color therapists take a purely biological approach to color therapy and healing art. Color can be introduced to the body through colored light therapy directed at the organs or through light shone on energy meridians in much the same manner as needles are used in acupuncture. Our practitioners use color to adjust the energy field, or aura, around the body. The Power of Color Breathing Color breathing can also be used to introduce the influence of a color into the body. Visualize breathing in the color you have determined will be most beneficial, then hold the breath for three to six seconds as you visualize the color penetrating through the affected area of your body or even throughout your entire body. Exhale and repeat for a total of three breaths. Choosing Healing Colors: Neutral Colors For healing purposes, white is stimulating and cleansing for the entire body. Black is a protective color that can be used to calm someone who is agitated. However, too much black can cause depression. Silver activates intuition and imagination. Too much silver can result in a disregard for common sense. Brown, on the other hand, awakens common sense and a practical approach to health and life in general.
