Colour therapy & chromotherapy explained


Your clients can also experience the benefits of color therapy during their sauna session. Chromo-therapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help the body re-establish its natural balance. 

It’s a lighting feature that paints the sauna with colors from the sun’s visible light spectrum, creating an artful atmosphere  with  a  balance-bringing  effect.  Your  clients  can  choose  the  colour  that  matches  their wellness needs and feel even better. 


Our bodies need the sun’s light to live. And that light can be broken down into seven colors on the visible band of the electromagnetic spectrum. An imbalance of any of those colors can manifest itself in physical and mental symptoms. Alternative medicine practitioners who use chromotherapy relate the seven colors of the spectrum to seven energy centers in the body known as chakras.   

Chromotherapy  sauna  benefits  include  physical,  emotional,  mental,  and  spiritual  healing.  Sunlighten  provides combinations  of  the  seven-colour  spectrum  to  include  16  colors,  four  colour-changing  modes,  and  four brightness/intensity settings. The lights are soft and gentle and can be controlled by remote. 

Chromotherapy is a centuries-old concept - colour has been investigated as medicine since 2000 BC. Currently, people are using chromotherapy as a complementary as well as an alternative treatment option worldwide.  

Light is responsible for turning on the brain and the body, entering the body through the eyes and skin. When even a single photon of light enters the eye, it lights up the entire brain. This light triggers the hypothalamus, which regulates all life-sustaining bodily functions, the autonomic nervous system, endocrine system, and the pituitary (the body’s master gland).
