The importance of color to all aspects of life is often overlooked. Color is a powerful tool that can change one’s attitude, mood, energy, vibration and can enhance one’s life overall. Color therapy by means of meditation and visualization techniques can help maintain good health & well-being by balancing and strengthening the subtle forces of an individual (i.e. the Chakra System). By utilizing relevant colors in your immediate environment through décor, dress and light, you can improve your general well-being by increasing the energy of (even conventional) healing modalities.
With these things in mind- we have created our Holistic Hoops™ with colored sparkle, holographic, laser and cloth tapes (which provide weight to the hoop, as well as a no-skid, gripping surface). These tapes come in healing colors representative of the 7-chakras (individually and in groups) as well as the elements- Earth, Air, Fire, & Water. Of course you can choose any color combinations for any hoop we offer as well. We understand that people are all innately drawn to specific colors- so, go ahead, and pick the one(s) you resonate with the most!
Our Illunihoops™ also utilize color therapy in the form of ‘light therapy’, otherwise known as ‘chromatherapy’. Each color of light emanates a particular frequency or vibration, each of which has its’ own healing energy or properties. You may choose your own specific color, color combinations, or a rainbow (slow or fast-changing RGB LEDs) of colors so that you may enjoy the entire prismatic spectrum.
