Colour Effects

I have researched colour therapy and I am particularly interested in the effects colours have on people. I will refer to the list below as a reference. I can pick colours for a particular mood or allow users to pick colours or pick an effect (calming, energizing, balancing, etc) they want rather than a colour.

Violet: Calming for body and mind. Good for meditation and prayer. Enhances purpose and dignity. Heightens our awareness and helps us to give of our very best. Purifying.

Indigo: Sedative. Helps to open up our intuition. The colour of divine knowledge and the higher mind.
Blue: Calming, relaxing and healing. Not as sedating as indigo. Also the colour of communication.

Green: Balancing, harmonizing and encourages tolerance and understanding.
Yellow: Stimulates mental activity, feeling of confidence. Helpful for study as it helps us to stay alert.

Orange: Warming and energizing. Can stimulate creativity. Orange is the colour of fun and sociability.
Red: Energizing, exciting the emotions, stimulates appetite.

Magenta: is the eighth colour in the colour spectrum and is a combination of red and violet, thus it combines our earthly self and spiritual self, thus balancing spirit and matter. It is uplifting and helps us to gain a feeling of completeness and fulfilment.
Turquoise: Cool and calming and good for the nervous system and immune system.

Pink: This colour soothes and nurtures. It helps to dissolve anger and encourages unconditional love.
Black: Used with another colour enhances the energy of that second colour. Black gives us the space for reflection and inner searching.

White: Contains all the colours. It emphasizes purity and illuminates our thoughts, giving us clarity.

One Response to “Colour Effects”

  1. Colour Therapy is the fastest growing treatment in the world. Each colur can afftect us both physically and emotively.

    In our clinic we have discovered that by adding colour to Bioptron Light Therapy treatments the effects are enhanced and speeded up for all sorts of conditions.

    It is the most effective, non invasive and drug free treatment for all sorts of wounds, scar tissue, pain and sports injuries – not to mention the effect on our appearance and general health

    So the saying ‘ Everything old is new again’ is certainly true of colour therapy which dates back to ancient civilizations and to Hypocrates himself
