Colour Therapy Meaning, Uses, Application and Learning

What is Colour Therapy?

Colour therapy is a holistic therapy that uses the seven main colours of the spectrum and light to balance the chakras of the body. Each colour of the spectrum resonates with one of the main seven chakras in the body. Each colour of the spectrum is simply light of varying wavelengths, thus each colour has its own particular energy. The use of Colour Therapy dates back thousands of years and is a truly holistic therapy using the colour energy from light. Used in the right way, colour can have a profound and healing effect on us as humans of any age as well as the animals.

Ways in which Colour Therapy is applied

Colour therapy can be used on the body in a number of different ways. As with any therapy, each colour therapist may have his or her own 'style', however, a number of common ways in which colour therapy is applied are:

Colour Therapy and Nature

Colour Therapy and Nature

When exploring some of the connections of Colour Therapy and Nature, one of the most obvious is, of course, flowers. They are a very big part of the colours we are all used to seeing around us. Nature is full of healing energy and it is there for us all to share and to enjoy. We just need to look.

Meeting a Colour Therapist

When you visit a Colour Therapist you should be greeted in a friendly and professional manner and welcomed into a calm and comfortable environment. The Colour Therapist should be fully qualified in the field and their expertise should include Anatomy and Physiology. Always ask for sight of their qualifications if you are unsure.

Colour Silks

One of the most popular ways of applying colour therapy directly to the body, is to use coloured silks. These are used to place directly onto the body of the patient.

Any natural fabric i.e. cotton, can be used where pure silk is not appropriate. For instance, when treating animals with colour.

Colour Therapy Self Help

Here are just a few ways in which you can use and apply colour for yourself.



Clothes are important, as by wearing them all day, the colour's will be absorbed by the body

It may seem obvious but clothes are important since, as we are wearing clothes all day, their colour will be absorbed by our body.

Colour Therapy for Animals

Animals respond very well indeed to Colour Therapy and, in my experience, often fall asleep during a treatment session and seem very reluctant to leave when their treatment is over.

Many animals do not see colour as we do, but this does not mean they are not affected by colour energies.

Animals are very sensitive to differing energies so they also pick up the varying energies of colour.

About Colour Therapy

Colour Therapy dates back thousands of years and is a truly holistic non-invasive and powerful therapy, Colour Therapy uses the energy relating to each of the seven spectrum colours. These colours and their energies, resonate with the energy of each of the seven main chakras of the body. Colour Therapy can help to re-balance and/or stimulate the chakras by applying the appropriate colour to the body and therefore re-balance our chakras. Balance of the energy in each of the body’s chakras is very important for health and wellbeing.

Colour and Breathing

A lovely and very helpful exercise is colour and breathing - or breathing in the rainbow.

The purpose of this is to firstly, heighten our awareness of colour and secondly, to encourage a balance of all the seven main chakra colours for our well being.
