Chromopuncture / Colorpuncture Information

The use of colors as a therapeutic resource has been used by such ancient civilizations as Egypt, Greece, China, and India. The objective was always the same: to harmonize the body, acting physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. 

Chromotherapy is an integrative and complementary practice recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) since 1976. Chromium or chroma means color and therapy corresponds to treatment. Thus, Chromotherapy can be understood as the use of colors to treat imbalances (physical, mental, emotional) using the specific frequency of each color. One or more colors of the solar spectrum can be used, which are: red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, indigo, and violet. Other colors can also be used, such as pink, purple, gray depending on the customer's needs.


Chromopuncture (color puncture) is a blend of chromotherapy and acupuncture, but without the needle!  It is an absolutely non-invasive technique where the body’s energy channels can be stimulated. A light pen equipped with color is used to stimulate the flow of Qi. Colored light is applied to the skin at specific points (ie. acupuncture points, along the meridians, or chakras). Each color emits a vibration (frequency) reaching (informing) cells, to rebalance and heal. Chromopuncture is a therapeutic technique that uses colors to balance the body physically, emotionally and energetically. ​


The Chromopuncture wand or pen is a radionic device, its function is to accumulate, expand and emit energy from sub-atomic particles. The wand is made of a hollow copper tube through which these particles parade. It also has a clear quartz crystal, along with our mind it projects the healing frequencies, directing the energy stored in the tube. In this way the sub-atomic particles are activated. The performance of the pen is independent of religious faith. It does depend on the pure energy that flows through us, as in everything you do in life in accordance to quantum physics. Therefore, when using your pen, it is important that you keep your mind in balance, as only positive and harmonic thoughts should be passed on through it to the person receiving the light waves. You can hold the pen 3-5mm away from the skin for approximately 2-5 minutes. You can also use a sliding motion from one meridian point to another. Always avoid shining the light directly into the eyes.  Once you direct the crystal point to a specific chakra or meridian, the incidence of light will affect the positive and negative ions of the cell. This wave of light will then spread to other cells in that region creating an expansion to activate or a contraction when sedation is needed.

To achieve balance it is recommended to relax and become aware of the balancing and healing work taking place in the body. Remember that you can use any technique you already know, or that technique that comes through intuition. In the treatment with the colors, it is ideal to scan, or cleanse the energy before applying the specific color to treat the patient. For this, you can use the blue color. In color puncture, energize the patient with the chromatic pen and use the colors according to the effects you need for the specific organ. The specific points and energy terminals will be unlocked using the color corresponding to each meridian. See in the table the colors and their treatment indications, as well as the chakras and meridians corresponding to each color. The blue color is good for sedation and the red is used for activation of the specific meridians.

Acupuncture, acupressure and color puncture are very similar, and they all use the same map of acupoints located on the meridians of the body. The difference is that acupuncture accesses these points through needles while acupressure uses the less invasive technique of touch. Acupoints are “energy hot spots,” or places along the meridian where energy collects, making the qi more accessible there. Acupoints can be manipulated to increase or decrease the flow of energy in a particular meridian. When energy is deficient, these points can be accessed to clear blockages and stimulate circulation. When there is too much energy flowing through or stagnating in a meridian, these points are manipulated to disperse the surplus of energy.

The acupuncture points have an affinity with the electromagnetic waves, mainly those frequently in the range of visible light that starts in red and goes up to violet.  Colors stimulate skin receptors, lower frequencies, that is, orange red and yellow have YANG characteristics and those with higher frequencies, that is, green, blue and violet, have YIN characteristics.
