Color therapy may not be talked about often, but there is something to be said about the way that certain colors make us feel. Like the peaceful feeling that comes over you as you look at the blue sky, or the excitement you feel when a red light turns green.
For many years people have believed that color can affect an individual’s emotions and even health. Interior designers recommend you paint your bedroom walls blue to promote better sleep and hospital color schemes often include pale blues and greens to create a soothing and relaxing environment. Researchers at the University of Arizona even tested the use of green light therapy to help with migraines. Further research is being conducted, however, some of the first trial group members refused to give their green lights back because of the relief it had given them.
According to an article written on the website, “How Stuff Works,” color therapy is described as, “the idea that colors create electrical impulses in our brains. These impulses either calm or stimulate us, making the perception of color both a physical and sensory experience.”
So you might be asking yourself, how does this relate to hot tubs?
Well, all Artesian Elite models are equipped with LED lighting. You can see for yourself, how relaxing in the glow of a color can change your perspective. Soak with the jets turned up as the spa glows green to boost feelings of tranquility and contentment. Wake up early to soak with the yellow lights turned on to start your day in a cheery mood. Switch them to purple when you are wanting to add more creativity to your routine or if you are struggling with feeling compassion. Or let all of the colors rotate through as you enjoy the sights and sounds of your Artesian Spa.
