This lighting feature paints your sauna with colors from the sun's visible light spectrum, creating an artful atmosphere with a balance-bringing effect. Choose the colour that matches your wellness needs and feel even better.

Colour Therapy Explained

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.1

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).2

A Brief Overview of Chromo­therapy Colours

Ancient cultures developed medical systems based on energetic principles of the universe and the somatic cellular body. The Sanskrit principle of Ayurveda describes of the wheels of life or Chakras as originating from subtle energy known as Prana. This type of subtle energy can be modulated by electromagnetic field/visible light to stimulate the brain/nervous system, cellular tissues, and bodily organs. Visible light is emitted in the form of photons that are absorbed through the skin and the active receptors in the eyes. Once absorbed, proteins or photopigments are activated at specific wavelengths to produce chemical reactions in the body. These reactions can produce various therapeutic biochemical benefits depending on their wavelength.
