What is Color Light Therapy?

Feeling "red hot?" Feeling "blue’?" Light is a turn on…or off.


Turning the light on or off can bring inner balance and peaceful restoration through Samassati Colorlight Therapy. Color light therapy is the centuries old concept used by the ancients in India, China, Greece, Egypt and elsewhere to alleviate and even cure various diseases. Breathing, the heartbeat, and the digestive tract are all regulated by the body’s automatic processes which depend on light. Light controls our bodily functions. The re-emergence and growth of this technology backed by modern scientific principles is certainly an exciting adjunct to energy healing today.

Plants, animals, humans, everything in the natural world exists as color. The physical human body is basically composed of colors or, simply put, visible energy observed as colors. The human body is stimulated and healed by colors. Many have heard of the human ‘aura’—measurable colored light (even visible to the trained eye) emanating from inside the body which is generated internally as expressions of the cells themselves and can indicate healthy organ function.

Samassati Colorlight Therapy is a non-invasive, painless, and effective method of applying colored light to specific areas of the body and on acupuncture points for restoring balance and resuming vibrant physical, mental and emotional health. Color is selectively used and applied to either stimulate or suppress the biochemical and hormonal processes to obtain balance within the organs and throughout the entire body. Samassati Therapy is being used to effectively treat a wide variety of both acute and chronic diseases and disorders, including bacterial infections, viruses, muscle-skeletal and hormonal imbalances.

We know light is energy or electromagnetic radiation (the fluctuation of electric and magnetic fields in nature), and the color spectrum visible to the naked eye is produced when energy and physical matter interact. Each color is a specific wavelength with its own fixed frequency. We are able to see or discern only a small segment of light or specific wavelengths as distinct colors with the naked eye. Our cells and atoms exist as energy, all having their own vibrational frequency we observe as color. In fact, each organ and other tissues have their own color or measurable vibrational frequency, distinct from the others. Different colors have different frequencies and respond differently when used on different parts of the body.


Why is the use of light so integral to our functioning and how can we use color light to help us heal disease? 

Light entering the eyes reaches the visual centers of the brain, including the hypothalamus, considered to be the brain’s brain. This in turn stimulates the pineal gland (as well as the pituitary) to control much of our body’s hormonal impulses. Using light on the skin and on acupuncture channels or meridian points is known to have measurable restorative effects on the body.

Colorlight Therapy Uses

Red, considered a warm color, provides comfort as well as excitement as it energizes the heart and blood circulation. The kidneys, spine, gonads and sense of smell are associated with the color red.

Orange is associated with sexual stimulation, enthusiasm, joyful relationships and pleasure. This color is also considered antibacterial.

Green, used for nervous breakdowns, insomnia, irritability, ulcers and known to calm the spirit and restore balance, is also used as an antibacterial as well as an antiseptic. It is affiliated with the heart, lungs and thymus.

Yellow is used as a decongestant as well as for digest- ive and lymphatic problems, and is associated with wisdom, clarity and self-esteem. It is affiliated with the gall bladder, pancreas and stomach.

Blue alleviates pain, stops bleeding, reduces fever, treats liver disorders and jaundice, and eliminates toxins. It assists in improving communication and calming strong emotions such as anger and aggression. It is affiliated with the ears, throat, hands and mouth. 

Violet, known for its association with the pituitary and spiritual awakening, relaxes muscles. It calms the nervous system and internal organs. 

Indigo controls bleeding as well as brings relief to abscesses. It is used as a sedative, bringing calm and stimulating intuition.

Everyone is entitled to the human right of relative peace and a sense of sanity, clarity and wholeness in their daily lives. Using light simply, effectively and easily inspires and allows us to regain contact with our innate, indwelling capacity to restore natural health and wellbeing. Anyone can benefit from learning how to use light: laypersons, energy medicine practitioners, therapists, nurses, and physicians willing to increase their depth of understanding and enhance their treatment methods and skills, while at the same time providing a proven, non-invasive and effective therapy for clients and patients. Caregivers and parents will find this training one of the most efficacious methods of avoiding costly medical bills and needless procedures for aging elders and children.
