Color therapy is classified as a vibrational healing modality. Vibrational medicine incorporates the use of chi energies within living organisms such as plants, gemstones and crystals, water, sunlight, and sound. A therapist trained in color therapy applies light and color in the form of tools, visualization, or verbal suggestion to balance energy in the areas of our bodies that are lacking vibrancy, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental. Memories connected to a physical or emotional trauma are held by circuitries in the limbic system, especially in the hippocampus and amygdala. These memories can be accessed with the correct color wavelength (for example, by using colored glasses). The exact color accesses the patient’s problem – just like accessing a hidden file in the computer.
Color is simply a form of visible light, of electromagnetic energy. In terms of modern neurophysiology, we believe now that distinct color frequencies can reactivate synapses in the brain which were previously blocked. If nerve conduction is reestablished in these areas, memories which were isolated are reconnected with the synaptic network of the brain and can again be accessed and integrated by the conscious part of the brain. The detrimental effect of unremembered trauma on the body seems to disappear. (Dr. Klinghardt; The Klinghardt Academy)
