COLOUR THERAPY

The use of colour as part of a holistic approach to healing

THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COLOUR

The International Association of Colour (IAC) was founded in 1984 by Theo Gimbel as a independent lead body and umbrella group which seeks to promote the global awareness of colour in all its forms.

IAC is non profit making and is financially dependant on the annual subscription of its members. IAC promotes and supports its members, and they are involved in a diverse colour world which include colour therapists, spiritual and energy healers, artists, designers, psychotherapists, and holistic medical practitioners.

MODERN LIGHT THERAPY

The Danish physician Niels Ryberg Finsen founded modern light therapy about a 100 years ago. In 1903 he was awarded the Noble Prize for medicine for his work on light therapy. Finsen was the first to develop the first device to generate technically synthesised sun rays. There are clear advantages for using technically synthesised rays for example the parameters of intensity and the emitted light spectrum are controllable and are therefore reproducible.

 

 

COLOUR THERAPY

Light and Colour are intimately linked with our well being. The mind and body respond to the vibrational energies of colours in many ways. The goal of Colour Therapy is to promote balance in the subtle anatomy which underpins the Psychological and physical natures. All the different approaches of using colour represent a gentle and relaxing way to health promotion. There are a number of approaches that colour practitioners use such as :

  • Coloured Crystals, use of coloured silks, use of coloured lights, use of colours in art theses are a few of the many ways to use colour.
  • Holistic modalites are combined with colour such as aromatherapy, reflexology, acupuncture and crystals.
  • Art, fashion, design, dance, and even gardening involve the aesthetic use of colour.
  • On the medical side, phototherapy , has led to several advances in treatment in recent years, especially since the advent of the laser and the LED. Notable medical uses include neonatal jaundice, dyslexia, cancer and migraine.

COLORAMA

Increasingly seen as an important journal for all aspects of light, colour and healing.

BIOPTRON LIGHT COLOUR THERAPY SYSTEM – ANCIENT LIGHT THERAPY

The use of light therapy in medicine has a long history. The first light source used in photo medicine was natural sun light. Even in ancient Egypt sunlight was used for medical treatments. Later Hippocrates described the use of sunlight to cure various medical disorders. Although sunlight therapy had no scientific explanations at the time, the healing power was clear, and Roman and Arabian physicians brought light therapy into general medical use.

DEVELOPMENT OF THE BIOPTRON LIGHT

At the beginning of the development of photo medicine mostly infrared and ultra violet parts of the spectrum were used in modern light therapy. In 1981 a Hungarian research team created a light source that was originally based on laser therapy, but worked with a combination of visible light and infrared radiation. The team considered polarisation of light as an important parameter. Based on this technology the Bioptron Light therapy system was created.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BIOPTRON LIGHT THERAPY SYSTEM

POLARISATION

Bioptron light is polarised light. This means that its waves move in parallel planes. In the Bioptron light polarisation reaches a degree of 95 %

POLYCHROMY
Bioptron light is a Polychromatic light which means it not only contains one wave length (like laser light) but a wide range including visible light and part of the infrared range. The wave length of the Bioptron Light ranges from 480nm to 3400nm. The Bioptron electromagnetic does not contain UV radition.

INCOHERENCY
As apposed to laser light, Bioptron light is incoherent or out of phase light. This means that light waves are synchronized.

LOW ENERGY
Bioptron light has a low energy density(fluence) This energy density has biostimulative effects. This means, that light can stimulate various biological processes in the body in a positive way.

BIOSTIMULATION
Bioptron light has biostimulative effects when applied to the skin it stimulates light sensitive intra cellular chain reactions and triggers so called secondary responses, which are not only limited to the treated skin area, but can involve the whole body. Bioptron light Therapy stimulates and modulates reparative and regenerative processes as well as the processes of the human defence system.

Bioptron Light Therapy acts in a natural way by supporting the regenerative capacity of the body and there helps the body release its own healing potential.

The use of Bioptron Light as a therapeutic tool has been popular in a variety of applications in the last ten years.
