Chromotherapy at home: colours that influence life.
Chromotherapy is the discipline able to create balance and well-being thanks to the interaction between the various colours. Therefore, it is essential to adopt the basic principles of this discipline also at home for a relaxing and serene home environment.
It is well known that color has a strong influence in our lives. This is explained by chromotherapy, a biotherapy that uses colours for therapeutic purposes. In the past very well known and used by different civilizations is now back in vogue and is increasingly combined with the world furniture for its beneficial effects.
Chromotherapy is an integrative medicine that uses colours to rebalance altered energy flows. At the basis of color therapy is the belief that colors can influence the body and mind of the person, in order to restore and promote balance or even control certain disorders.
The therapeutic action of colours is attributed by chromotherapists to multiple effects: colours dilate or narrow blood vessels, increase the production of red and white blood cells and enzymes, support the immune system, strengthen the tissues, favour the transport of oxygen in the blood, extend consciousness.
The combination of interior design and colour therapy is therefore essential to ensure psychophysical wellbeing in the home.
