Bursitis Color Therapy

What is bursitis color therapy?

Color therapy (also known as color healing or chromotherapy) is an alternative therapeutic metod that takes advantage of the vibration and frequency of light and color to promote healing in the body.

This practice is based on the belief that the human body is composed of energy fields and that energy imbalances contribute to illnesses and diseases.

Bursitis color therapy uses colors to provide the energy vibration that your body needs through the eyes, acupuncture points, chakras, meridians, reflex zones, etc. for restoring health in the system.

When the energy is distributed properly and circulated freely, the body is healthy.

Colour is an amazing self-help medium available to us anytime & free.

Fun Facts

The Old & The New

The healing power of the sun and light has been used since ancient times:

  • The Egyptians had healing rooms built into their temples with panes made of colored glass in the walls / ceiling so the sun rays could shine through, surrounding the ill with colored light.
  • The city of Heliopolis in Greece was also renowned for its healing temples where treatment by sunlight was practiced - called heliotherapy.
  • In India, the traditional system of medicine Ayurveda has been based on seven chakras and the specific colors associated with them.
  • The Native Americans and Tibetans were also taking advantage of the healing properties of colors.
  • Ancient Chinese medical system have used twelve meridian energy pathways that can be correlated with the twelve major color wavelenghts
  • In many cultures, colored precious stones were used in jewellry and decorative items to protect their owners from disease.

I'm red with anger!

Have you heard someone saying "I was red with anger," or "I was green with envy," or "I'm in a black mood"?

  • Interestingly, when we are angry - our aura* turns red. And you've guessed it. When we are envious - our aura turns green. With negative thoughts, our aura turns into dark colors.
  • So these sayings probably come from times when people were able to tune into and see auras of other people.

*Aura is the electromagnetic field that we are all surrounded with and that is changing colours depending on our mental, spiritual and physical state.

Alternative or Mainstream?

In the modern Western world, the color healing was rediscovered in the 19th century. For example:

  • Dr. Rollier used light therapy on quite a large scale to treat tuberculosis.
  • In the 1970s, Nobel Prize nominee Fritz-Albert Popp came to the conclusion that all natural organisms emit and absorb light energy at the cellular level and this energy is the basis of intercellular communication in all living things.
  • Although light and colour treatments are viewed as complementary therapies, they are, in fact, widely used in modern medicine, for example in the forms of infra-red laser, argon green laser or ultra-violet light devices.

How Does Bursitis Color Therapy Work?

Remember when you went for a lovely walk in the nature and the fresh air and sunshine left you feeling happy, refreshed and alive?

Yes, every living thing on the Earth is dependent on light for our existence, health and well-being.

Rays of light from the sun contains a full spectrum of electromagnetic energy. We recognize it as visible white light. This is then further broken down into the different color waves that make up the color spectrum.

Our bodies are made of energy. And so are colors. Every cell and organ in our body has a specific vibrational frequency. And so do colors.

Each color is associated with specific properties, have different healing effects on physical and mental functions and can be applied either to the whole body or to the area affected.

When the body absorbs light through the eyes or the skin, it travels through the nervous system, to the part of the body that needs it the most.

If applied correctly, targeted use of colors can trigger healing, correct disturbing energy flows in the body, balance imbalances, unblock blockages.

What Can I Do?

Using color to promote healing can be very simple to use and there is a mindblowing number of ways you can use to bring the healing energy of color into your life:

  • Nature

A stroll through a flower garden or amongst the green leaves and grasses of the countryside can do wonders for your bursitis. Treat yourself to a colorful flower bouquet.

  • Clothes

You can wear clothes of a particular color to increase its vibration power on your body every day.

  • Home Decorations

Have some fun bringing colour into your home in the form of coloured fabrics, artwork, crystals, lamps, candles, decorative pieces,...

  • Diet

Consume fruits, veggies and other foods of the color you lack in your body.

  • Beverages

Make your solar bursitis color elixir:

  • Pour some water into a colored glass and let it sit in the sun for a couple of hours, then slowly sip it.
  • Alternatively, place gems or crystals into the glass bottle when exposing the water to the rays of sun.

It is believed that this 'sun-charged' water gains the energy and properties of the colour of the glass and/or the crystals and so can help you to treat the bursitis inflammation and other aliments accordingly.

  • Aromatherapy Oils

Get yourself some pure natural aromatherapy essential oils in the bursitis color required and enjoy them:

  • On your skin
  • In a massage
  • In a diffuser
  • On a light bulb
  • In a bath
  • Pink Glasses

Simply put on a pair of colour therapy glasses in the desired colour and style...and there you go - colour therapy in an instant. Trendy too!

  • Visualisations

Visualise yourself drinking, inhaling, bathing in and/or being surrounded by the colours you need to resonate with.

For example, to relieve acute bursitis, imagine blue colored water and freezing cold ice-cubes covering your inflamed joint. Keep this vivid image in your mind for at least 20 minutes and see what happens...

  • Breathing

This is similar to visualisations above. However, you accompany your visualisations by some old good breathing excercises to enhance the bursitis color therapy effect even further.

  • Meditation

Color is used in a variety of ways during meditation:

  • Focus your eyes on specific color(s)
  • Imagine descending / ascending a color ladder
  • Use color breathing / visualisations

The healing power of colors is also often used in hypnosis - very deep, guided meditations.

  • Acupuncture

By applying specific color light on the acupuncture points, the healing energy vibrations are absorbed and distributed through the body along the meridian patways the Chinese mapped out long long ago.

  • Laser

The modern medicine uses different color light treatments, including color lasers and irradiation.

Healing is supported by directing specific colors or frequencies of light towards the damaged tissues in the body or energy centers affected by illness.

  • Take the Crayons Out

You would not believe how therapeutic can be an afternoon spent coloring a beautiful mandala painting book.
