Coloured light acupuncture

White light is a mixture of all the wavelengths a human eye can perceive. Light of a specific wavelength is seen as a specific colour, because the photosensors in the retina send a signal to the brain which in turn interprets that signal, e.g. light with a wavelength of 435-480nm to us is blue. So colours are sensory impressions.

Colours can influence us, as the many expressions based on colours suggest: “feeling blue”, “green with envy” or “rose-tinted glasses”. Colour influences our subconscious mind and our psyche.

The effect of a given colour is not universal, but in general blue is considered to be a cool colour whereas orange and red are warm colours. So, if I want to soothe, blue is my choice. If I want to stimulate, orange and red are selected.

Light of a defined wavelength also has a defined vibration and energy. This energy can help to harmonize processes in the body. This is a safe, gentle and non-intrusive method to promote healing.
