Color Therapy For Your Home
Color therapy is a form of holistic healing that has been used for thousands of years to treat physical and emotional issues. Also known as chromotherapy, color therapy is regaining popularity today. According to ayurveda, the 5,000 year old traditional medicine of India, every color has certain healing energies. By using color therapy techniques when you are decorating your home or office, you bring those healing energies into your space and enhance or diminish certain qualities.
In this post we will take a deeper look into the color green, The Heart Chakra, how green color therapy can effect the mind and body, and how to integrate green color therapy into your home decorating.
The Heart Chakra or Anahata Chakra
Green is a balancing color and encourages emotional stability, purity and calmness. It is connected to the heart chakra and is thought to facilitate emotional issues such as love, trust, compassion and forgiveness. An imbalance of the heart chakra promotes mistrust, jealousy, insecurity and a fear of relationships.
Health Benifets of the Color Green
Green lowers blood pressure, balances metabolism, encourages growth, eases insomnia and acts as an aphrodisiac. It refreshes the mind and creates harmony.
Green Interior Design and Decorating
Green is a great color for bedrooms, but is so beneficial that every room in the house should have at least a splash of green. Adding green houseplants is an easy way to achieve that effect. Magenta is green’s compliment color.
