One of the most popular options Sunlighten customers add to their infrared saunas is the chromotherapy package. Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms.
Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light, each color addressing a distinct need.
There have been some positive findings regarding the regular and targeted use of colored light to balance emotional and physical energy. Recently, studies have also suggested that color therapy may be useful in the fight against diabetes.
According to a study out of Zurich, Switzerland, burst of blue light may be helpful to trigger a genetic response to make more insulin.
The scientists in Switzerland believe they have developed a way of turning on individual genes with bursts of light. Blue light in particular sets of a chemical chain reaction in the bodies of test mice switches on the GLP-1 gene. The pancreas responds by making more insulin, the body’s cells are more insulin-sensitive and the diabetic person feels full.
While the genetic component of this study goes beyond the chromotherapy currently offered by Sunlighten as an accessory to your infrared sauna, it is extremely exciting to watch modern science begin to investigate popular and useful Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practices. We are confident that the scientific community will continue to see substantial benefits from color therapy in a variety of areas.
Sunlighten’s chromotherapy add-on is unlike any other on the market. Instead of single color lights, Sunlighten’s package include 16 colors, four color-changing modes, and four brightness/intensity settings. The lights are soft and gentle and can be controlled by remote.
