Colour Therapy.

Colour Therapy is the therapeutic use of colour and light as a means of balancing and harmonising mind body and spirit. Colours are differentiated light, and research indicates that our physical and mental well-being are affected by our relationship with the colours (or lack of them) in our environment. For example, the depression resulting from a lack of light in Wintertime (Seasonal Affective Disorder) can be corrected with the use of special daylight simulation bulbs, high blood pressure responds to the use of blue light, and the nervous system is excited by the use of red light.

Colour is used in many forms to heal and aid the sick, diseased and the distressed. Colour has been used in healing from ancient times. The sun's rays have been known to have magical healing qualities and these rays passed through a spectrum, will give you colours that have very good healing qualities for certain illnesses and injuries.

Colour therapists use colour both to diagnose and to heal - often basing their work on the chakra system, which funnels the energy of light into the body at major collecting points, each resonating with a different colour. By realigning the chakras, balance is restored throughout the body’s systems, reducing stress and stimulating energy flow.

Individuals can benefit from being aware of colour and how to use it for their personal enhancement on all levels, from the simplest applications such as wearing a blue scarf when you have a sore throat, to helping athletes improve their performance and overcome mental blocks by using colour visualisations.

Each colour and colour combination has its own vibration. As well as being very distinctive visually, each colour has its own feeling and taste.

Red is the colour of energy, vitality and power. It is used for burning out cancer, drying up weeping sores or wounds, etc., it will warm cold areas to reduce pain. Red is a powerful healing agent for healing diseases of the blood and circulation. It will help with depression. Red is not to be used on people with high blood pressure or anxiety. If you stay under the red ray too long or are exposed to red for a considerable time it will make you very agitated or even aggressive.

Orange is also a colour of energy. It is used to increase immunity, to increase sexual potency, to help in all digestive ailments, chest and kidney diseases. Orange will have a gentle warming effect if used lightly. Orange, like red should not be used for too long. It is not a good colour for nervy people or people easily agitated.

Green is the colour of harmony and balance. It is good for tired nerves and it helps with the heart area. It will balance the emotions and bring about a feeling of calmness. Green is a good general healing colour because it stimulates growth so it is good for helping heal broken bones, regrowth of tissue of all kinds. Green is a good colour for help create an atmosphere of serenity and calm. Too much green may create more negative energy if there is some already present in the person being treated.

Blue is the colour of truth, serenity and harmony, by helping to sooth the mind. Blue is good for cooling, calming, reconstructing and protecting. Blue will help feverish conditions, it will help stop bleeding and it will help with nervous irritations. It is very good for burns. Too much blue could leave you cold, depressed and sorrowful.

Purple is also a colour that will connect you with your spiritual self. It is good for mental and nervous problems. It will assist very well with rheumatism and epilepsy. Helps with pain, is used in deep tissue work and helps heal the bones. Too much purple and you don't tend to live in this world.

Full-Spectrum Sunlight – the gift of sunlight.

Physiotherm Full-Spectrum Light has an effect similar to that of Sunlight using OSRAM Biolux tubes in which UV light is limited to DIN 5036, so no sunburn occurs.

Physiotherm Full-Spectrum Sunlight can help regulate the metabolism and lead to the production of vital Vitamin D, as well as supporting the immune system, strengthening resistance to disease and acting as a protective shield and stimulator of the self-healing ability of the human organism. For many its most crucial role is in the fighting of depression brought on by the lack of sunlight in the cold, dark winter months.

Light gives life. We experience this every spring when the days become longer and the warming sunlight awakens nature. People too naturally become more joyful. We can appreciate the influence of sunlight on humans by looking at the differences between the people of northern and southern Europe. Statistically there is more depression in the northern parts of Europe particularly in the long dark winter months.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) having been widely acknowledged by the medical profession for many years. The consequences of light deprivation are severe for many people. They can suffer from an increase of metabolic disorders, depression, skin diseases, allergies and conditions caused by impaired/suppressed immune systems.

Sound Therapy

Sound has powerful possibilities to exert positive influences on body and mind. Correctly selected, music for relaxation and meditation can help make us cheerful, balanced, stress free and gives us a passion for life.

Aroma Therapy

Aromatherapy has been practiced in one form or another since the beginning of civilization. It is the art and science of using oils, extracted from aromatic plants to enhance health and beauty. Apart from the physical benefits, essential oils can have subtle effects on the mind and emotions, stimulating positive results. The essential oils taken from plants and used in Aroma therapy have been described as their “life force” – they are essential to the plants’ biological process, as well as being the substance which gives them their scent.

When you inhale essential oils, they enter into your respiratory system. In your lungs, molecules of essential oils attach themselves to oxygen molecules and are carried into your blood stream and circulated to every cell in your body including the brain. Within the cells, essential oils can activate the body’s ability to heal itself and to improve health.

Physiotherm Infrared Therapy

You’ll love the way this superbly crafted Physiotherm infrared sauna engages all your senses and offers soothing relaxation. Better still, you’ll be amazed at the health giving benefits it offers to you and your family.

KEY BENEFITS

Detoxify and lose weight

Scientific studies show that a thirty minute session in an infrared sauna can assist in the loss of toxins and stored fats by up to six times the level a traditional sauna or exercise alone can achieve. This is because infrared light penetrates deeply into the tissue and the unique light wavelength acts to break down toxins (pesticides, heavy metals etc), cellulite and fats. Because you can sweat up to three times more than you do in a traditional sauna, these fragmented impurities are then flushed to the surface where you can simply wash them away.
In a comfortable thirty minute Physiotherm session you can lose up to 800 calories.

Enjoy radiant, youthful skin

Infrared heat helps develop the body’s capillary network. This increases the blood circulation to your skins surface. Together with infrared heat’s super cleansing effect, you will see a noticeable improvement in your skin’s texture, complexion and tone.

Find relief from pain

Health professionals have used infrared lamps for many decades to treat muscle and joint problems because of infrared’s deeply penetrating heat. Physiotherm’s design and patented infrared technology ensures an increased flow of oxygen rich blood to painful areas helps to flush away toxins and ease stiffness, aches and soreness from arthritic conditions, over work, or poor posture.

Healthy for your heart

When you sweat more, your heart works harder to pump blood. An easy thirty minute session in a Physiotherm infrared sauna is equivalent to walking or jogging for 10 to 15 kilometres and without any impact on the joints.

Reduce unsightly cellulite

European beauty specialists regularly incorporate Physiotherm sessions in programmes to reduce cellulite. Because the radiant infrared heat penetrates three times as deeply as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at breaking down hard to move cellulite and promoting a more youthful, beautiful complexion.

Wake up your immune system and combat the effects of daily stress

Physiotherm’s deep radiant infrared heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever, which in turn activates and stimulates your body’s immune system. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes, your overall health and resistance to disease is noticeably improved so you look and feel better.

Enhance other treatments and exercise

Whether you receive massage, beauty treatments, practice yoga or attend a gym, the Physiotherm effect works to maximise your results.
