Chromotherapy: Opulence in Orange

Color Therapy, surrounding yourself in shades that stimulate your senses and enlighten your being.

Dynamic, charming, and energetic, shades of Orange create an environment rich with feelings of abundance. Orange has a way of freeing your self expression, awakening wisdom of self, inspiring intuition and creativity, relieving repressions and depression, and boosting your immune system. With wavelengths of warmth, orange increases the activity of the thyroid gland, and stimulates the lungs, digestive and respiratory systems.

Svadhisthana

Orange is the essence of our sacral chakra, Svadhisthana, which is translated as “the dwelling place of the self,” and is the energy center of our creativity and sexual empowerment. Governing the emotional and sensual aspects of life, it helps us to find our own voice and pleasure center in life. Svadhisthana is greatly impacted by the element water, and can be balanced by spending plenty of time in or near to it.
