Of course, we’ve all seen celebs and super models sporting tinted sunglasses and wearing the new trend well, but what we didn’t know is that these glasses have some serious health benefits to go along with their style. So, what exactly is “chromotherapy” and why do we all need to get a pair of color therapy glasses ASAP?
Chromotherapy is a medical term for the use of colored light to treat psychological and mood-related issues. Light is composed of electromagnetic energy, and the body’s energy fields (called chakras) respond to different electromagnetic energies, which can aid in balancing the chakras. Balancing of the chakras has a wide array of benefits, including physical healing, emotional healing, relief for skin conditions, and relief for anxiety and depression.
Each color of the rainbow provides different health benefits and enhances your mood in a different way, so you can choose the one that best fits your personality and needs. Here are examples of the different chakra coordinating colors and their effects:
Red color therapy glasses respond to the root chakra, which when balanced provides you with a deep sense of grounding. This grounding can greatly help ease discomfort from anxiety.
Orange color therapy glasses respond to the sacral chakra, which is responsible for our sexual and creative energies. The use of orange light helps to open this chakra which will elicit feelings of pleasure and joy. This color is especially beneficial to those who struggle with depression.
Yellow color therapy glasses respond to the solar plexus chakra, which is the source of your personal power and rules your self-esteem. This chakra is also responsible for governing all activities stomach related. Yellow light will help open you and give you a sense of power, it can also help with digestive issues.
Green color therapy glasses respond to the heart chakra, which governs the awakening process. This is where the physical and the spiritual meet. Wearing green color therapy glasses can aid in your awakening process and will surely give you a beautiful energy boost. This chakra also governs the thymus gland which plays a vital role in your endocrine and lymphatic system, so keeping your heart chakra open and balanced is necessary in promoting total well-being.
Blue color therapy glasses respond to the throat chakra, which rules all communication. Balancing this chakra enables you to speak your mind and your truth without fear or doubt. Blue light will help you to express yourself clearly.
Indigo color therapy glasses respond to the third-eye chakra, which is the source of your intuition. Keeping this chakra balanced will allow you recognize and tap into your own intuition. This chakra also governs the pituitary gland and lower part of the brain, so you can expect your thinking to be sharp and clear when utilizing purple light therapy.
Violet or purple color therapy glasses respond to the crown chakra. The crown chakra is the center of enlightenment. It is our spiritual connection to our higher selves/the divine. When this chakra is aligned and balanced, we are gifted with realizations that are much bigger than ourselves. Utilizing violet light therapy will help clear your mind and correct energy imbalances.
So there you have it. I think we can all agree that using this new trend to look awesome AND promote wellness is a no-brainer. We might just have to wear a different color of the rainbow every day of the week!
