What is Crystal and Colour Therapy?
Crystal and Colour Therapy is a holistic method of treating the mind and body through the use of selected crystals and colours.
Crystal and Colour therapy is a non-invasive holistic treatment that aims to bring balance to the energy of our body. It is often used as a complementary therapy alongside other treatments such as Reiki.
Scientifically, colours have been proven to affect our moods and perception, and there is evidence of colour therapy dating back to ancient Egypt, historic China and ages-old India. Healing by using colour and light was the first type of ‘therapy’ used by man.
Colour is a very important part of healing and used hand-in-hand with crystals has been shown to help us achieve our best potential – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, both in humans and animals.
The Science Behind it All
Colour is light of varying wavelengths and frequencies and electromagnetic waves constantly surround us, of which colour is part of those waves. Every single cell in the body needs light energy. Our cells absorb colour, and this affects us on every level, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Each colour has a different frequency, thereby having a different effect on the body when exposed. It is thought that the famous colours of the rainbow, red, yellow, green, blue, orange, violet and indigo resonate with the main energy centres of the body, the Chakras.
You may be familiar with seeing newborn babies suffering jaundice at birth, a series of medical conditions that occur when there is an obstruction of the bile duct, liver disease or an excessive breakdown of red blood cells. The babies have very obvious signs of yellowing of the skin and eyes and when affected are placed under blue-coloured light for a length of time. This process is called photo-oxidation however simply put simply it’s a form of colour therapy. The blue light penetrates the skin and newborns affected are effectively cured – a simple and prime example of how the coloured lights can save a life.
Who can benefit from Crystal Light Therapy?
To put it bluntly, everyone can. Where I feel it comes into its own is when you want a quick and simple therapy that get results. When used as an addon to other holistic therapies it gives additional benefits as well, sort of like the icing on the cake!
I love this therapy for the relief it brings for many many conditions and it is safe and suitable for all ages from birth to the elderly.
How is Crystal and Colour Therapy applied?
Today, there are quite a few ways in which colour and crystal therapy can be administered. One of the most popularly utilised methods is by placing crystals on, around, or a mixture of both, of the person and then shining concentrated coloured lights directly onto the body.
Seeing and hearing the results of people who have received crystal and colour therapy never fails to astound me, they often leave me feeling so different and more in control. One of the benefits of crystal and colour therapy is like most holistic practices, is that it’s beneficial and appropriate for people of all ages or conditions. It’s not hard to see why holistic treatments are so globally popular today.
In my rooms, I use a Cryxon® Crystal Light Therapy lamp which combines colour, light and crystal therapy in one device allowing me to tailor the therapy to suit the person easily and effectively. The Cryxon® Crystal Light Therapy lamp allows me the portability to support people in hospitals or those unable to attend my rooms.
“People are like stained-glass windows,
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty are revealed only if there is light from within.”
