Chromotherapy – The Sundance Spa and Marquis Spa, USA
Chromotherapy, also known as light therapy, uses colour and light to harmonize your physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental energies. Colour therapy finds roots in ancient Indian Ayurveda, traditional Chinese healing, and ancient Egyptian culture. Technology has brought this ancient treatment to the spa world as a part of a therapy or as a standalone treatment.
Scientists have researched that colours have different wavelengths that have a considerable effect on mood, emotions and body. For instance, blue and violet are soothing, while magenta lowers anxiety and improves creativity.
At the Sundance Spa and Marquis Spa, colours and lights are added to hot tubs and jacuzzi. For optimal effect, these lights are synchronised with hydrotherapy. You can program the hot tub to cycle through the entire spectrum of colours or select a favourite shade for each client. You can also adjust the brightness level to set the mood right.
