Color Therapy or Color Healing is the use of color in various forms for the purpose
of creating balance and health in the human system. The human system includes not
only the physical body, but also the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects (PEMS).
Working with the PEMS is referred to as wholistic medicine.

Some of the forms of Color Therapy are:

Colorpuncture and Samassati Color Therapy


Crystal Healing or Crystal Therapy
Color Silks Therapy
new Hydro Color Therapy
About the COLORS

COLORPUNCTURE and SAMASSATI COLOR THERAPY


Colorpuncture and Samassati Color
Therapy use color light on meridians and
acupoints, chakras, in the aura, and on
various reflex zones. Just as needling
(acupuncture) or applying pressure (acupressure
and Shiatsu) tomeridians and acupoints, color in
the form of light, crystals, essential oils, etc., can
also affect the electromagnetic circuitry of the
human system.

Samassati Color Therapy is rooted in Colorpuncture using the techniques of


Colorpuncture. The difference is that with Samassati Color Therapy, there
is less emphasis on following the techniques by rote, and more aboutsensing the
effects of specific colors, listening to one's intuitionregarding color and placement,
and feeling the effects of color with all the various energy pathways of the client.
It's learning about Color and Light viscerally.
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.

I graduated from Katrina Raphaell's Crystal Academy of Advanced Healing Arts in


1991. To this day, I've not found any training
that comes close to its depth of information
and quality of experiential exercises. The
training was a deeply personal journey for me,
and I was easily able to use the techniques I
learned
immediately with
my clients.

The Crystal Academy teaches the ancient art of laying of


crystals and stones on the body for healing. You also learn
about the healing properties of many crystals and
stones and the history of Crystal Healing. Mostly, the
training is experiential, because the best way to learn is by giving and receiving the
work and then sharing the experience with others.

COLOR SILKS THERAPY


Another form of Color Therapy uses 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.

HYDRO COLOR THERAPY


Hydro Color Therapy (also called Hydrochromotherapy), which incorporates water and
color, is a very effective way of transmitting color onto and into the physical body.
Water is well known to be a powerful conductor of energy, so it is an natural choice for
transmitting color energy into the body.

Two of the ways color and water can be used are: Infusing color into filtered water via
the sun for internal consumption, and color light with a shower or tub.
Bringing color energies into the body with filtered, color-
charged water is a wonderful experience. All you need to
do is find some colored glass bottles that are non-
toxic. NEVER USE PLASTIC BOTTLES as they contain toxic
substances that are released especially with heat. Fill the
glass color bottle with pure filtered or distilled water and
place the bottle in the sunlight for at least a day. Store in
a cool place until you are ready to drink the water.

Drink some blue-charged water before going to bed to help relax the nerves and mental
chatter. Feeling depressed and listless? Drink some red-charged water for energy and
vitality. Yellow-charged water can help with detoxification. Turquoise-charged water is
like swimming in a tropical paradise; it brings calm and playfulness. Orange-charged
water has the ability to act as a aphrodisiac, stimulating our sexual desire. Violet-
charged water is useful when we would like to calm the mind during meditation. While
green-charged water is an overall harmonizer and balancer.

LED lights are now being widely used in


bathtubs, showers, hot tubs, jacuzzis, swimming
pools, etc.

The color light is beamed into the water, which


allows your body to take in the color energy
through the skin. Very much like tonating color
light on the skin with a color light instrument, water acts as an amplifier of the color
energy completely saturating the body.

The hertz vibration on the planet is rising, as well as everything on, in and around it. We are now able to perceive new
colorsthat we have not seen before. Notice the light as it reflects off the bark and leaves of trees and the soil... notice the
color of the sky. Colors are becoming richer, deeper, and many new colors are making themselves available to our
perception. What are these colors and what do they mean? Some of these are the in-between colors or the paler colors of
the rainbow spectrum and they offer us a deeper understanding of ourselves.
The new colors are really not so new. They are the "in between" colors and the paler colors of the rainbow palette.

The "in-between" colors are those colors between the rainbow colors of the Chakras. The "in between" colors give to us
the nuances of realities beyond our 3-dimensional knowing. They show us that so much more exists than our everyday
reality. By meditating and wearing these colors, you may find the "in betweens" of yourself.

The paler colors are the colors we know but with more light in them. It's as if a spotlight has been shown on color so
that more of that particular color speaks in our life. It is color with intensity. Often what is hidden in the paler colors is
an experience of unshed tears and suffering.

PALE TURQUOISE inside, knocks on the door to the soul, opens inward to our connection with Spirit, our soul and
