Sauna and Colour Therapy

Chromotherapy also known as colour therapy is a method of treatment that uses the visible spectrum (colours) to treat certain diseases. It is one of the most successful ancient practices that has gained momentum in the modern science world. Colour has a major influence on our behaviour and our brain, and each colour affects us differently. (1)

So how does it work?

Each colour possesses unique vibrations capable of influencing our physiological and psychological states. When referring to the word ‘colour’, we mean energy waves. Each hue carries distinct frequencies of energy that interact with our brain, triggering responses that range from relaxation to invigoration.

A study in 2015 looked at the effects of colour therapy on 200 participants. The results proved that chromotherapy has tremendous effects on various ailments. They found improvements for hypertension, depression and stress, migraines, hyperthyroidism, various skin infections, alopecia and even breast cancer. (2)
