Several ancient cultures, including the Chinese and Egyptians, practiced a healing method known as Chromotherapy, or light therapy. The therapy is still practiced today, typically by applying lights of specific colours to the body.
Advocates of Chromotherapy believe in using lights of different colours, and that the use of these colours can positively impact our health and wellbeing by working to rebalance us on an energetic level.
Many sources have indicated that different colours have positive effects on our wellbeing and feelings. Whether decorating a home or choosing an outfit, it’s been proven time and time again that certain colours spark different moods and feelings.
Both our Float Pod & Infrared Sauna features a multi-colour LED, allowing you to experiment with these concepts of colour for yourself.
