  • By Kate Williams

Modern life certainly has many benefits, but it also means it can be especially difficult to find time to relax. It is important for us to unwind and relax, it’s all about self-care and finding a routine that works for you. One thing that many people are turning to these days to relax is chromotherapy, which is also known as colour therapy. Many people are installing chromotherapy shower heads in their bathroom to create a vibrant experience.

What is Chromotherapy?

This type of therapy is an ancient practice that uses the power of colours to allow for optimum emotional, physical and mental wellbeing. This was used in ancient civilizations such as China, India and even Egypt. The different colours possess different energies that impact our mood along with our overall health. Every colour is associated with certain qualities and therapeutic benefits.

How to Efficiently Bring Chromotherapy Into Your Bathroom

If you’re interested in adding a chromotherapy element to your daily shower routine, then there are a few steps you should look to follow to ensure you make the most of your experience.

Choose a Dominant Colour

As already explained, every colour has a different association, therefore it is important that you understand what desired therapeutic effect you are looking for. It is also a good idea to take into consideration the size of your bathroom as well. You don’t want to be overpowered by the colours!

Consider Other Lighting

While it’s important to get the colour of your chromotherapy shower head correct, you also need to consider the other lighting in your bathroom. You don’t want the other lighting to overpower everything, so opt for smart bulbs that give you the ability to adjust the brightness.

Other Decor and Wall Art

If you’re looking for a well-rounded chromotherapy approach, then it’s not just about the shower head itself. Other decor in your bathroom can assist in the relaxation process as well. Choose items that fit in with the colour scheme, and things that will make you happy to look at.

Two is better than one! Why not look to combine the power of both chromotherapy and aromatherapy. Use things like essential oils, scented candles or diffusers to help you achieve your wellbeing goals. 

Bathroom Accessories

Along with decor and wall art, you can make your space a true relaxation haven by adding bathroom accessories like towels, bath mats and shower curtains in the desired colour. These types of accessories allow for experimentation as they can be easily replaced if you aren’t liking the look.

Relaxation and rejuvenation is the name of the game, and it is a way to block out the rest of the world, even if it is just for a little while.
