The team at The Trend Curve(tm) has always been fascinated with the topic of color healing. We have researched, read and reveled in the potential for color vibration to impact mood. In fact, several years ago we released a product called Color = Emotion(tm), a mini-deck of colors plus suggestions for how color makes us feel. It was a best seller, which told us that many of our readers are also interested in the less obvious impact of color.
Color healing has always existed, beginning with the birth of light into our world. Scientific study of color has revealed endless truths about our relationship to color: physically, psychologically, even spiritually. So color is not just about aesthetics, it is also about wellness.
As interest in Color Healing continues to grow among consumers, there are numerous sources available for those who want to expand their knowledge of this topic. Leah Pennig, staff writer, has compiled a list of The Trend Curve’s favorite books dedicated to this fascinating subject. Her reviews of each are below.

Colour Healing: Chromotherapy And How It Works
Don’t be deceived by the small size of this book. It contains a vast amount of information on color healing, otherwise known as Chromotherapy.

It also defines auras, while briefly mentioning the healing potential of gemstones, musical notes, and numbers.
Healing with Music and Color
Addressing the role music plays in color healing, this book claims that combining the two therapies can provide optimum results. Our bodies are much like musical instruments, in the sense that they need regular “tuning.” Every color has a corresponding note, and each one of us has our own personal note, too. Find yours! Includes information on crystals and auras.
This book defines the type of color healing known as the 49th Vibrational Technique. The author reminds us that color, or light, is simply a vibration. And, much like music, color has the ability to eradicate energy blockage in our bodies. Much of the information is derived from studies done in the early 20th century by Dr. Dinshah P. Ghadali, a pioneer in the science of color healing. This book also contains a helpful A-Z index of symptoms, noting the appropriate color “prescription.”
