Chromotherapy uses light to treat various medical conditions. It is used for relieving pain of various kinds and healing wounds. Shower chromotherapy is a tool that can be easily installed in your bathroom, inside a quality shower cubicle. Find out how this form of light therapy works and how it can benefit your health.

Chromotherapy: what is it?

Chromotherapy is a type of light therapy that uses different wavelengths of visible light to stimulate the body’s natural response to heal itself. It is a non-traditional medicine that has been around for centuries. The ancient Egyptians used it for medical purposes and the ancient Greeks for spiritual purposes.


Nowadays, we mainly use color therapy as a way to improve our mood and sleep better. This practice dates back more than 4,000 years ago, to the ancient Egyptian and Greek civilizations, which used chromotherapy to treat ailments such as depression.


However, it was more recently that it began to be used knowledgeably and effectively: thanks to Dr. Hans Berger in the 1920s. Dr. Berger noticed that when he exposed patients with certain skin conditions to red light, their symptoms improved. Since then, scientists have studied the effects of different colors of light on our bodies. They found that blue light stimulates melatonin production, while green light helps regulate blood pressure. Red light also improves sleep quality and reduces stress levels.

The shower is a place for relaxation and rejuvenation, the best place to use chromotherapy.

A situation in which each color emits its own frequency, helping to restore balance and providing the necessary energy.


Bobox Plus and the Steam by Relax introduce the added value of chromotherapy into the shower enclosure: a unique journey towards relaxation, health and well-being, in which the chromatic curative bath becomes extremely important.


The chromatic healing bath is a type of holistic therapy based on the principles of colors: it can be used in the shower and in the bathtub, according to the colors you need at that moment. It will release stress, renew energy, give peace and bring harmony. Chromotherapy in the shower is based on the idea that the body can absorb colors and that different colors can affect the body in different ways, resulting in different treatments for different conditions.
