History of Colour Therapy

History of Colour Therapy

In ancient Greece, Aristotle, Plato and Pythagoras studied light and colours.

Lists in ancient Egyptians papyri, dated back to 1550 B.C., refer to treatments with colours. In the temples of ancient Thebes and Carnak, there were specifically designed rooms for the study of colour.

In the treatment area, manuscripts of ancient Egypt, China and India reveal a completed system of treatment with colours, based on the sevenfold nature of humans and seven parts of sunlight spectrum, which represents the way we see colours and chakras today. Chinese archives, dated 2000 years ago, refer to diagnosis based on colours.

In later years, during Middle Ages, Paracelsus used the power of colours in therapy in combination with music and herbs.

Colour Therapy came back to the front stage in the beginning of 19th century and was mostly about the channeling of colours to the whole body or parts of it through specifically designed lamps.

In the course of the last two centuries, recurrent studies and treatments have shown that the use of coloured light is one of the simplest yet more powerful and effective ways to readjust balance in the human body because with the use of the appropriate colours, we can bring balance back in the affected area.

The wave lengths of colours, when inserted in our physical and inner body, it can reactivate the blocked wave lengths of our brain and the rest of the body.
