Colour Light Therapy in our Sauna
Each of the colours in the spectrum is associated with specific healing properties. Thus, by using different colours, one can trigger changes towards better health and overall wellbeing. It is a known fact that the human body needs light for certain metabolic functions such as absorption of certain vitamins.
Red – ENERGY
Called “The Great Energizer.” It loosens, releases stiffness and constrictions. It is excellent for areas that have become stiffened. Red is the first visible colour we see after the infrared band is passed. It promotes cellular growth, stimulating the “will” aspect, or the circulatory system. Red links with and stimulates the base of the spine, causing the adrenal glands to release adrenalin. This results in greater strength. Red causes haemoglobin to multiply, thus increasing energy raising body temperature conditions as it stimulates sensory nerves such as hearing, taste, smell, and activates metabolism.
Good for – all colds, sluggish or dormant conditions, such as pneumonia; arthritis; anaemia or blood-related conditions; as a liver stimulant; an energy builder and for increasing circulation.
Blue – CALMING
Can be used for any type of ailments associated with speech, communication, or the throat. Blue has a pacifying effect on the nervous system encouraging great relaxation. It is ideal for sleep problems. Blue light connects us to holistic thought and gives us wisdom and clarity enhancing communication and speech. Relaxing, soothing blue rays bring great calm and peace to the mind that is worried, excited, or in a constant nervous state. It is a very positive colour, indicating loyalty and reliability, as expressed in the sentiment of being “true blue.”
Good for – inflammations; fever; high blood pressure; bleeding; headaches; anger; aggression; hysteria; soothing nerves
Green – BALANCE
Is the universal healing colour. Green is midway in the colour spectrum; therefore, it contains both a physical nature and a spiritual nature, in equal balance and in equal harmony.

In a more practical sense, green affects blood pressure and all conditions of the heart. It has an energizing effect, moderating or soothing effect.
