... color therapy (chromotherapy) and color psychology in the philippines ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist)

matang lawin ("hawk eye") is a science-environmental tv show aired on abs-cbn and hosted by kim atienza. today, they interviewed me about color therapy.

color therapy, also known as chromotherapy is one of the modalities i use as an art therapist and holistic healer. color therapy is usually applied through

(1) the use of colored lenses on eyeglasses,
(2) exposure to lights of different colors, and
(3) visualization/mental imagery exercises.

as a certain color enters the eyes, it affects the hypothalamus, pineal gland, and pituitary gland, all of which govern and regulate hormonal production, which in turn creates cellular changes.

red for instance has been found to increase melatonin production at night by 70% and can also help people with autism. blue has the potential to help people with dyslexia (learning disorders) and dyskinesia (movement disorders).

as for the psychology of color, you can visit the very first post on my blog:

... reiki mawashi and dragon ball z energy blasts in the philippines ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist)

"reiki" means "universal energy." "mawashi" means "round, revolve, current, or game."

"reiki mawashi" is the reiki practice of gathering in a circle, joining hands, and then sending energy to flow within the circle. it is usually done as a formal exercise for generating collective healing energy for the participants.

for today's group however, we did "reiki mawashi" as a fun game for developing a sensitive feel for energetic flow.

sometimes, "reiki mawashi" can generate a lot of energy which makes the group participants sway rhythmically from side to side.

not knowing what to do with the excess energy built up, we simply decided to blast our photographer with dragon ball z (dbz) energy balls.

hi doctors sam padre, alex pacheco, ronald miranda,
and pocholo morales! it was nice exchanging
good energy with you! :D
