So how does colour healing actually work?

Each colour vibrates at a different rate, as can be seen when white light is divided into all the colours of the rainbow after being shone through a prism.

Each part of the body resonates with a specific colour. When the body is not well, infusing the correct colour for that location can assist with healing by increasing the resonance of the diseased part.

The objective of colour healing is to restore balance and harmony to the aura.

White light contains all the colours of the rainbow. Thus sunlight, which is white light, is often used by healers because the body will absorb the correct colour it requires for healing from the colour spectrum in the white light. Each and every cell in the body is continuously working towards balance and harmony and can take what they require from the light.

Colour healers make use of both light and colour. They either infuse certain colours into the body that are lacking, or defuse colours that are in excess. Defusing these colours is done by providing a complementary colour.

Complementary colours are:

            Red     -           Blue

            Orange -          Violet

            Yellow -          Violet

            Green -           Magenta

            Indigo -           Orange

Because green is both an exceptionally restful colour for the human eye as well as a natural healing colour, most hospitals paint their walls in shades of green.

Colour healing can be applied in a variety of ways, examples include: coloured lights, visualizations, crystals, food and drink.

A short description of what each colour offers:



Red releases adrenaline, stimulates blood circulation and increases vitality. It is a colour that excites and should therefore not be used on its own, but to be followed by either blue or green.


Orange lends strength to the pancreas, spleen as well as the lungs.

We can extrapolate that orange can assist in alleviating: asthma, bronchitis, flues and colds.


This colour works mainly with the nervous system and provides good muscle tone.

It assists with constipation, flatulence, dyspepsia, heart palpitations and depression.

Use yellow carefully so as not to cause a diarrhoea.


The stimulation of the pituitary gland is done by green. Gentle green light can assist in reliving headaches and may help with fertility issues.


Blue has antiseptic and astringent properties. Because of it being a cool colour, it can help with fevers, colds, sore throats, cuts burns and rheumatism.


Indigo has physical, emotional and spiritual values. It can help reduce any bleeding as well as ear, eye and nose conditions.


Use violet to help alleviate stress and strain, mental disorders, insomnia and eye conditions.
