This month’s featured artist at the MacLellan & Moffatt Financial Gallery in the Margold Cultural Centre is Jen Powers, a firm believer in the power of colour therapy, Truro Daily News reported on September 4th. In the article, “Truro native has works on display,” Powers commented, ‘The therapeutic use of colour dates back thousands of years, and can have a profound and healing effect. Each colour found in the visible light spectrum has its own wavelength and its own frequency, which produces a specific energy. Much of my inspiration for the work created for this show has been through a brief education of sacred geometry, colour therapy, and my own personal experiences and emotions.’ (http://www.trurodaily.com/Living/Arts/2013-09-04/article-3374290/Truro-native-has-works-on-display/1)

This inspired Yourwellness Magazine to take a closer look at the healing power of colour. Yourwellness Magazine explained, ‘It seems that in ancient Indian medicine, colour therapy has long been used as a way to heal the mind and body, with surprising effects. The unique vibrations of colour could work to treat ailments and various cultures have adopted this method in ancient medicine, including Egyptians who had specific healing rooms where the sun dispersed various colours of the rainbow which was thought to have healing powers. Today, colour therapy is making a comeback as a holistic method for treating the ill. This treatment is known as chromotherapy.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/08/what-is-colour-therapy-and-how-can-you-use-it/#sthash.9pWieUvG.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine noted that each colour of the rainbow is associated with a different chakra or energy centre, and each of these chakras is connected with a gland in the body, so healing the chakras can improve the function of these glands. Yourwellness Magazine clarified that the therapy works by drinking water that has been charged in coloured bottles or by breathing colour, which involves putting the required coloured bottle out in the sun for a few hours and then breathing in the air from inside it. Yourwellness Magazine added that wearing soothing colours can help alleviate stress, boost the mood and enhance circulation.
