Color Therapy Red
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 orange, The Base Chakra, how red color therapy can effect the mind and body, and how to integrate red color therapy into your home decorating.
Color Therapy Red and The Base Chakra
The color red is associated with the base chakra and linked to the spine, hips and legs, plus the kidneys and the bladder. It is a warm, stimulating color and thought to strengthen willpower and courage. It also helps raise low blood pressure and energize people.
Decorating With Red
Red is often used when decorating restaurants, kitchens, dining rooms or active areas because it increases the appetite and boosts energy. Red is also associated with passion.
The negative effects of red can be overstimulation. People with anger issues or high blood pressure may aggravate their circumstance if too much red is used. Pink is an excellent substitute or just use a few red accents. Sky blue is the compliment color to red.
