One of the most popular ways of applying colour directly to the body, is to use coloured silks. These are used to place directly onto the body of the patient.
Any natural fabric i.e. cotton, can be used where pure silk is not appropriate. For instance, when treating animals with colour.
Using Coloured Silks
Depending upon what colour is required to treat a patient, the coloured silk is placed directly onto the body. It is not usually necessary for the patient to remove his or her clothes for this. However, any coloured clothing should generally be removed for best results. Any qualified colour therapist should have a white dressing gown or similar to hand if necessary.
