Chromotherapy: The Light Looks Good.

color-wheelSeveral ancient cultures, including the Chinese and Egyptians, practiced a healing method known as Chromotherapy, or light therapy. The therapy is still practiced by some today, typically by applying lights of specific colors to the body.

Proponents of Chromotherapy believe in using lights of different colors, and that the use of these colors can positively impact our health and wellbeing by working to rebalance us on an energetic level.

Many sources have indicated that different colors have positive effects on our wellbeing and feelings. Whether decorating a home or choosing an outfit, it’s been said time and time again that certain colors spark different moods and feelings.

Why should your floats be any different? The Float Pod® features a multi-color LED, allowing you to experiment with these concepts of color for yourself.

How might the spectrum of colors impact us? Below is a summary of some of the common uses of each color as traditionally practiced in Chromotherapy.
