Derived from the theories of Indian Ayurvedic healers, chromatherapy or colour therapy is based on the body’s seven chakras. When these “energy centres” become misaligned, colour and light are used to restore the balance where it’s lacking – whether physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. Each chakra is tied to a location in the body and possesses a corresponding colour and physical/emotional association. When colour therapy is combined with aromatherapy and steam the potential for maximum well being can be achieved.

Visitors to Spa De Marrakech experience the healing benefits of colour therapy as part of the Arabian Steam Temple Journey spa package. During this package relax and unwind in deep cleansing steam surrounded with the healing vibration of colour, before continuing on your treatment journey.
