WHAT IS COLOR LIGHT THERAPY
COLOR IS LIGHT AND LIGHT IS COLOR
The sun emits light at different frequencies. These frequencies can be separated by a process called refraction. When the light goes through a crystal prism, it refracts and divides into the seven colors of the spectrum, where each color has its own frequency.
If the separated colors go through another prism they will form white light. The first person to demonstrate this phenomenon at the end of the 17th century was Isaac Newton, the great British physicist.
COLOR WAVELENGTHS & FREQUENCIES
Energy travels in waves. The distance between successive waves is called a wavelength and the number of times a wave oscillates in one second is called frequency. The general rule states that the longer the wavelength, the lower the frequency. Every color has its own specific frequency and own its individual wavelength and therefore its own specific effects.
Violet has the shortest wavelength while red has the longest. Beyond violet lies ultraviolet which, although invisible to the human eye, can pass through our body. Ultraviolet provides us with a suntan and kills bacteria. The longest wavelength at the other side of the spectrum is red. Beyond red lies infrared followed by microwaves, radar, radio and television wavelengths, all invisible to the human eye.
Red, orange and yellow carry longer wavelengths and seem to reach the eye faster than colors on the other end of the spectrum. They are called warm colors and we often associate them with fire and sunshine.
Green, blue and violet are perceived as cool colors. They travel in shorter wavelengths, so they seem to take longer to reach our eyes. They bring to mind seas and rivers, the sky and the crispness of dawn in winter.
Each warm color has its complementary cool color, paired as follows: red – blue, orange – indigo, yellow – violet, green – red (magenta).
The BIOPTRON Light is polarised; the electromagnetic waves of polarised light oscillate in parallel planes only, thus making this light highly penetrating. No ultra violet rays and no substantial heat are produced: BIOPTRON light therapy devices are safe to use, with no negative side effects.
Color and light therapy aim to treat the cause of an ailment rather than its symptoms, working to create a balance within the body by stimulating physical and emotional conditions.
This Color Light Set is based on 2 color therapy principles – the concept for pressure points & chakra stimulation – providing the benefits of light and 7 colored filters.
BIOPTRON Color Light Set is gentle, safe and efficient. It uplifts you with brilliant colors.
THE COLOR CHAKRA THERAPY
Health is contingent upon balancing not only our physical needs, but our emotional, mental and spiritual needs as well. The color chakra therapy principle is based on the assumption, that colors are associated with seven main chakras, which are spiritual centres in our bodies located along the spine. These chakras are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the specific area.
Chakra (pronounced sha-kra) is the Sanskrit word for "wheel". It is assumed, that chakras store and distribute energy. There are seven of these chakras and each is associated with a particular organ or system in the body.
Each chakra has a dominant color, which may become imbalanced. If this happens, it can cause a disorder and physical ramifications. By introducing the appropriate color, the disorder is considered to be improved.
REVEAL THE POWER OF COLOUR
Red is the boldest color of the bunch and it represents fire, heat, blood, passion, will power, survival, anger, temper, danger and destruction. It is used to energize, encourage movement, increase our instant responses and ignite passion. Red is the color associated with the root chakra, which connects our energy with the Earth.
Orange is a warm toned color that induces happiness and acts to combine physical energy with mental qualities. It is the color of creativity and adaptability and provides a general sense of well-being and cheerfulness. Orange is in charge of the sacral chakra, which is home to creative life force energy.
Yellow is the color of intellect and perception. It is the color of the personality and ego and represents our feelings about ourselves and our
self-worth. This color promotes clear thinking, detachment, brightness, confidence and charm. Yellow represents the third chakra, known as the solar plexus, which is where self-confidence, identity and personal power are born.
Green is the color of love, progress, growth, fertility, hope, balance and new life. Considered a calming and quieting color, it helps fight stress. Green is also the color of the heart chakra, which is where love, compassion and kindness are empowered.
Blue is even more soothing than green, especially when it comes to our emotions. It is the color associated with meditation and spiritual expansion, since it relaxes and opens the mind. Blue stimulates mental growth and is the color of peace, truth, devotion, calmness and sincerity. It is the color associated with the throat chakra and represents finding your own voice and truth.
Indigo has always been a color associated with discipline, structure, faith and efficiency. It is also considered helpful for clearing addictive emotions. It makes us face our fears, encourages progress and inspires self-responsibility. Indigo is the color of the third eye chakra, which opens the mind to information beyond the material world and the 5 senses.
Violet is the color with the shortest wavelength and is associated with self-knowledge and spiritual awareness. It has always been considered a rehabilitating color and it encourages the union between ego and spirit. Violet is the color associated with the 7th and final chakra, called the crown chakra, which represents pure consciousness.
