color therapy for horses

This effective new modality combines color therapy and acupuncture to help heal horses.

Ever notice how various colors make you feel? Warm colors like red and orange can be stimulating and energizing, while cooler hues such as blue and green have a calming, soothing effect. It’s no accident. In fact, color therapy, an ancient healing modality that involves treatment with colored light, has been used effectively for centuries all over the world.

Color therapy works simultaneously on every level of the energy system. In addition to the physical body, horses (as well as people and other animals) also have energy fields made up of a number of energetic bodies, including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Color therapy works on each of these levels and is therefore effective in treating conditions of both a physical and non-physical nature.

Introducing Colorpuncture

Esogetic Colorpuncture (or Colorpuncture, as I will refer to it for simplicity) is a more recently developed form of color therapy. It involves applying the gentle noninvasive healing frequencies of various colored lights to acupuncture points and other areas known as Mandel points. Colorpuncture was developed by Peter Mandel, a German scientist and naturopath who has conducted over 25 years of intensive research to develop this unique system of healing.

In Colorpuncture, colored light frequencies are used to stimulate healing responses in the horse’s body and mind. Light is subtle, fast-moving and penetrates deeply into every cell of the body, supporting the natural healing process and impacting both the physical and subtle energy bodies. In addition to colored light, Colorpuncture also uses infrared, ultraviolet, brain wave, sound and crystal frequencies.

“Colorpuncture uses light and its component colors to reintroduce the correct ‘informative energy’ into the mind/body complex wherever wrong ‘information’ has been lodged through traumas, etc.,” writes Jack Allanach, author of Color Me Healing “It is somewhat like eradicating viruses in our biocomputer’s software. As proper information flow is restored…physical health improves.”

The Effects of Light

“We know today that man is essentially a being of light,” says world-renowned biophysicist Dr. Fritz Albert Popp. The same can be said of horses. “The modern science of photobiology…is presently proving this. In terms of healing…the implications are immense. We now know, for example, that…light can initiate, or arrest, cascadelike reactions in the cells, and that genetic cellular damage can be virtually repaired, within hours, by faint beams of light. We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between light and life, but we can now say, emphatically, that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on light.”

Scientists are now discovering that light is actually the medium by which cells communicate and that it’s at the very basis of many body functions. Colorpuncture is a powerful holistic healing system that offers a unique way to get to the root cause of many health conditions, whether acute or chronic. It gently “unwinds” stuck information and energy. It is designed to address the non-physical origins of illness as well as the physical symptoms. Colorpuncture therapy uses precisely targeted light treatments to gently unlock and release the emotional trauma and blocked “soul information” that often underlie equine illnesses. After treatment, you can expect changes not only in your horse’s physical body, but improved emotional and mental function as well.

Assessing the Horse

A therapist typically begins a Colorpuncture session by conducting an evaluation of the horse. The evaluation normally consists of the following:

• Kirlian photography (a form of photography that measures the energy field or aura of your horse and gives the therapist a good measure of his vitality level)

• Testing various reflex points with a probe

• Palpating with hands

• Observation

Specific systems such as the organs, nervous system and spinal segments can be tested to provide the therapist with information that will help determine the best course of action. To give you an example, the cervical spinal segments can be palpated with the hands to give the therapist information about the neck, head, eyes, ears and nose. The tongue can be observed for information about the digestive system.

Once the horse’s primary issue has been determined, it can be categorized into one of three areas of treatment: • Endocrine • Toxic • Degenerative Each area has its own series of treatments (over 50 in each). The therapist will look at the horse’s symptoms to determine a specific treatment, then conduct a “test therapy” during which the horse’s response to the light will be evaluated. This leads the therapist to a “broader treatment therapy”.

Stages of Treatment

In a Colorpuncture treatment, precise frequencies of colored light are applied to the skin using a hand-held proprietary acu-light wand with specially designed, interchangeable glass rods that emit different colors of light through a focused tip. Each colored tip communicates different information to the horse’s system.

A specific set of points are treated in sequence using a prescribed pattern of colors. As the skin absorbs the light, it is transmitted along energetic pathways (meridians) deep into the horse’s body, stimulating intra-cellular communication and healing. These treatments regulate the energy and information flow in all the different systems of the horse’s body.

Colorpuncture is easy on the horse because it’s noninvasive and quick to do. It’s also very effective, and well worth considering as an additional healing modality for equine well being.
