Colour Therapy

The psychological effects of colours in our built environments are quite marked. Colour needs to be understood to be applied in a way which supports activity or rest, agitation or calm. The psychological colour language is universal as it would appear to be rooted in our biology. Red stimulates the sympathetic nervous system which raises our readiness for action. Blue stimulates the complementary system, the parasympathetic, which lowers blood pressure and induces calm. Other colours partake to various degrees of these extremes of action. Colour is understood by the unconscious mind whether the stimulus is applied directly to the skin or through the eyes. In this way, bodily response patterns can be shifted, and harmony can be restored by the judicious use of coloured light in therapy.
