A STUDY IN COLOR THERAPY

_


BRANDING | RESEARCH

Below you will see seven flipbooks that combine color and chakra therapy with an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing technique (EMDR). EMDR is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories by following a single dot with your eyes.

Chakras are important centers of energy that appear throughout your body. Keeping the chakras in balance has been linked to maintaining mental and physical wellbeing. Each chakra is represented through a color.

As you flip through the books, let your mind wander to any anxieties you may have. Just be sure to keep your eyes on the moving dot. Work through those worries as you flip the pages and focus on simultaneously relaxing the specific chakra of the book you are holding. For example: as you flip through the green book - focus on your heart chakra and releasing any tension around that area. Doing this before bed will help rid your anxitey and prevent nightmares.
