TYPES OF COLOR THERAPY
In a Colorpuncture treatment, frequencies of colored light are focused on the skin using
a hand-held acu-light tool (see Colorpuncture Products) with specially designed, hand-
made interchangeable glass rods which emit different colors of light through a focused
tip. Each color consists of different wavelength frequencies of light and therefore
communicates different energetic information. Treatments include a specific set of
points in a sequence using a prescribed pattern of colors.
As the light is absorbed by the skin and transmitted along energetic pathways or
meridians deep into the body, it stimulates intra-cellular communication which supports
healing.
Colorpuncture therapy uses precisely targeted light treatments to gently unlock and
release emotional trauma and blocked soul information which often underlie our
illnesses. Patients report not only changes in their bodies, but improved emotional
outlooks and a clearer sense of life direction after treatments.
SAMASSATI COLR THERAPY
Samassati colr therapy is rooted in color
puncture in which the techniques of colr
therapy is used. The difference is that the
man emphasis is done on sensing the
effects of specific colors, listening to ones
intution regarding color and placement,
and feeling the effects of color .
COLOR SILKS THERAPY
Colored silks on the body, primarily over the chakra
centers.Also being natural fabrics, cotton and wool
carry a healing vibration as well, but silk carries the
highest frequency vibration of any natural cloth.
Because of this, colored silks have the ability to
radiate their signature color frequency to the
physical body and energy field (aura).
The energy of silk is soft yet potent, allowing one to
soak up the color frequency. One of the beauties of
Color Silks Therapy is that you can place an entire
sheet of color over the entire body, or place an
single color on a particular part of the body.

CRYSTAL HEALING OR CRYSTAL THERAPY
Crystal Healing or Crystal Therapy is the laying on of
stones to restore balance to the chakra system and
heal the physical body, emotions, mental thoughts
and the spirit. Stones are placed based on color,
quality, sacred geometry.
chakras are points or knots, in the subtle human
body. They are located at the physical counterparts
of the major plexuses of arteries, veins and nerves.
Chakras are part of the subtle body, not the physical
body, and as such are the meeting points of the
subtle (non-physical) energy channels, called nadiis.
Yoga medicine describes the body as having seven
main chakras, which are spiritual centers located
along the spine that are associated with a color,
function and organ or bodily system

COLORS USED IN TREATMENT
Certain colors affect specific parts of your body when used for promoting
your health:
Indigo - effective for curing eye, ear, nose and mental disorders.
Blue - helps in relief from headache, muscle cramps, migraine, stomach
pain.
Green - is used for curing cough, inflammation of joints, bronchitis, eye
disorders, diabetes and cysts.
Yellow - helps in treatment of disorders of glands, lymph system,
metabolism and nervous system.
Orange - helps in treatment of depression, mental disorders, pessimism,
arteriosclerosis, loss of appetite, and stomach cramps.
Red - is used for treatment of anemia, skin disorders, asthma and chronic
coughs.
There is some evidence that colour affects our mood and
general wellbeing. In 1958, US scientist Robert Gerard
conducted a study that claimed red stimulates and makes us
anxious, while blue promotes calm. He also showed that
colour could affect appetite, blood pressure and aggression.
Ingrid Collins, a consultant psychologist is convinced that
chromatherapy can effect our energy levels. "We know that
the cells of the human body are constructed from atoms and
that each atom consists of particles of energy in constant
motion," she says. "We are therefore at the most
fundamental level made of energy and information, so when
we add a particular colour we are adding energy into our
lives.

IS THERE ANY EVIDENCE.?

color.
