Sauna with Color Therapy
The science of how colors affect us is at least 200 years old perhaps longer. It was in the early 1800s that author and naturalist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) published his pioneering works on color psychology.
Colors are all around us and without thinking about it, we shape our surroundings based on our preferences. We make color choices every time we decide what to wear, what to eat and how to decorate the home. The colors we surround ourselves with during our everyday lives affect us, our behavior and our emotions. By raising our awareness of the power of colors, we can begin to use these to make positive changes in our lives.

Many psychologists have studied color and its significance, and have been able to conclude that colors are perceived differently and create some kind of reaction in most people. However, it has been difficult to clarify exactly what colors make us feel, because to some extent it also depends on culture, time and place. Although there are shared opinions about how colors affect us, we can agree that they are of great importance, and that they often control us more than we think. Psychologists and researchers do not fully agree on what the colors do with us, but common is that there is an impact on our emotions and behaviors.
The method of affecting man physically and mentally by means of colors is called chromotherapy. This knowledge has long been known in many ancient cultures in Egypt, Persia, Tibet, India and China. In the West, the use of color for therapeutic purposes has not been as widespread. In the early 1900s, Rudolf Steiner developed a special use of colors in art and therapy on the basis of Goethe's color theory. Since then, further impulses have given color therapy increased dissemination. Lights and colors are used today in various ways even in established care in many countries.
Chromotherapy, sometimes referred to as color treatment, colorology, color therapy or chromatotherapy, is an alternative method of medicine, which is considered a pseudoscience.
