Chromotherapy: Rooted in Red

Color is a language of the soul. Utilizing placement of colors in your home and surroundings is a way of cultivating a balanced environment.

Rich crimsons to sensual scarlets, red tones are bold, energizing, and passionate. Shades of red spark your appetite, increase circulation, stimulate low blood pressure to alleviate lethargy and low spirits, and induces the secretion of adrenaline to boost your energy.

Our subconscious feelings about our physical existence is centralized at the base of our spine in our root chakra energy center. Nurturing its dynamics is a profound part of our healing and personal growth, and how we begin to understand and relate to the nature in which we are rooted in this physical plane. Emotional currents and patterns ripple through our ancestry,  shaping the trajectory of our own well-being. The adrenal glands, kidneys, and bladder are all affected by our relationship with our root chakra energy center, as is our self-awareness, and our sense of security, strength, stability and survival.
