Chromatherapy, aka color therapy, has been around for centuries. It’s an alternative healing method that uses color and light to balance the energy centers of the body, also known as chakras. Chromatherapy treatments are connected to the seven chakras of the body, each of which has a corresponding color, physical location and distinct energy.
While many high-end spas offer this experience, ThermaSol has created the Serenity Light, Sound, Rainhead, which features a full spectrum of color, and the ThermaTouch Smart Touchscreen Control with Chromatherapy Mode, all of which work together to create the full chromatherapy experience right in the comfort of your own home.
There are additional ways to add to the benefits of chromatherapy; one being the use of essential oils. We recommend pairing your chromatherapy shower experience with essential oils, a key to aromatherapy. For an energizing and mood-boosting experience, the yellow chromatherapy setting along with our Energize Oil Blend is sure to delight the senses and prepare you to take on the day.
Chromatherapy is about balancing the chakras, the physical locations in the body that have specific energy centers. At ThermaSol, when we developed our Chromatherapy Mode and Serenity Light, Sound, Rainhead, we drew from our knowledge and understanding of Indian Ayurvedic healers who pair each chakra with a corresponding color.
Yellow is associated with the solar plexus, stomach and digestive organs. As the center of the body, the health of this region is particularly important in combating physical and mental stress. Activating this chakra can aid in metabolism, strengthening the nervous system and combating glandular disease.
Energize Oil Blend
For the most mood-boosting, therapeutic shower experience, be sure to include a citrus-blend essential oil, such as our Energize Oil Blend. Citrus is one of the most popular essential oil blends in aromatherapy – it’s known to invigorate the senses, improve circulation and lift moods. You can simply add two to four drops into the reservoir of the SteamVection Steamhead, which delivers consistent steam throughout the entire shower.
We recommend using this essential oil in the morning to help energize and awaken you.
The Ultimate Pairing
Combining steam, chromatherapy and aromatherapy into one shower experience is the ultimate form of self-care. The connection between the mind and the body is an important one, and turning showering – usually a mundane act – into a daily wellness ritual will set the right tone for your day.
