Colored Light Therapy
Colored Light Therapy is a natural therapeutic use of colored light to affect change in the body on the physical, emotional and spiritual energetic levels. It uses color to restore the whole person to health and harmony. Research, personal experience and results with clients have validated the importance of color in treating health disorders and discomforts.
Each color vibrates at its own frequency. Everything in the world, plants, rocks, a hat, your car and especially the cells of the human body, vibrate at their own rate. Every organ system in the body has its own frequency. When we are healthy and balanced, our body is literally in harmony, but ill health disrupts this harmonic, causing cacophony throughout.
How It Works
Colored Light Therapy works in two ways: 1) directly entering the eyes, and 2) via the skin. In the first way, light enters the eye, and is converted into electrical impulses by millions of light- and color-sensitive cells called photoreceptors. These electrical impulses travel along the optic nerve to the brain, where they trigger the hypothalamus gland to send neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) to regulate the autonomic system functions of the body (ie: breathing, the heart beating, etc). The hypothalamus affects both the pituitary and pineal glands in the brain, which, in turn, receive messages from cells all over the body. The pituitary and pineal glands secrete hormones that stimulate other glands of the endocrine system, including the adrenals and thyroid glands. The hypothalamus, pituitary and pineal glands are important partners for regulating the glandular (endocrine) system of the body. The glands interact with and regulate all the bodily functions and it is essential that they be in balance if good health is what you desire.
What it Affects
A small list of these functions include: blood pressure regulation, moods, immune system strength, body temperature, breathing, digestion, sexual function, the aging process, clarity of mind, and the circadian rhythm. Full-spectrum light "turns on" the delicate impulses that regulate your body chemistry and its growth, all of your organs, your brain, and more. Directly exposing the skin to colored light activates the natural healing process through direct light and color absorption, which increases or decreases the electron spin within the cells. By using the natural healing properties of the colors of the spectrum, we give the body tools from Nature to help it heal itself, gently and from within, at it’s own pace.
It is an ideal modality for sensitive, over-stimulated people. I have included an amazing testimonial from a mom whose daughter had severe food allergies.
I’m a busy mom with a husband, two daughters, a business and a backyard full of pets. We are big believers in holistic medicine.
I was coming to Anne for some relief from a troublesome and chronic arm issue and had to bring my daughters (aged this and that) along with me, because my baby sitter had to cancel last minute.
That day my older daughter was having one of her painful stomach events due to food allergies. Anne asked if I was OK with giving my daughter a colored light therapy treatment while I was having my lymphatic session. It sounded good to me. Anything to help. In 30 minutes, my daughter went from doubled over with a stomach ache and crying to us hearing her singing in the treatment room. I signed her up for a package of treatments and since then she has been able to eat dairy on occasion without the pain. It had been years since she’d had ice cream.
Anne also made an aromatherapy blend for her, which my daughter loves and carried with her and she felt it was helping. She (Anne) also talked to her about the importance of colors in her case. I’m so grateful to Anne for helping both of my daughters with natural health care.
