What is Colour Light Therapy?


Colour Light Therapy (chromotherapy) is the technique of restoring balance by applying colour to the body. It is one of the most holistic and simple methods with loads of proven health and cosmetic benefits. This healing method does not require you to consume anything, nor does it require putting anything on your body like creams or ointments. You simply lay or sit under the desired colour.

During any sauna session at Rimba Sweat, treat yourself to chromotherapy – it’s all part of the package, just choose your desired colour and experience the healing power of colour.
