Oct. 31, 2008 - PRLog -- Ecotherapy - Healing through the Colours of  Nature

The Ecotherapy website includes online  articles on healing and dealing with stress at home and at work. There are  slide shows for meditation and to relax during a break or in the evening when you  get home stressed out from a hard day. There are counselling and advice  services at a very reasonable fixed price together, with ecotherapy walks from  spring to autumn 2009 in the west Wales area. The walks will be in the beautiful countryside  and coastal areas of Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire and the Preseli Mountains,  while mainly for and individuals, parties can also be catered for by  arrangement.

What is Ecotherapy?
It is well known that the first and perhaps the major symptoms of stress or  mental illness is the breakdown between a person and the people around them.  The effect of this can be seen in the home and the work place leading to  erratic behaviour, strained relationships and social isolation. There is also  an ecological element to this condition, we as humans suffer these problems  because we have the ability to think and reason, therefore we may see ourselves  as being apart and perhaps superior to the natural world.

However, despite this  air of superiority we still retain primal animal instincts that manifest  themselves when we become mentally ill, are under stress or a perceived threat.  Some people advocate that ecotherapy is about mending this rift between people  and nature in order to become whole, reconnect with the natural world around  us, and put an end to a vicious circle of abuse through direct experience of  wild nature. Incorporated within ecotherapy is the awareness of current ecological  issues and the sustainability of our life style with regard to the damage it  does to planet Earth.

Ecotherapy and Colour Therapy
The basis for combining these two therapies is that while we are highly  evolved animals we still respond to the colours in nature in an instinctive way  the same as other species. Generally, this instinct is based upon the need to  look and feel good in order to attract a mate, it also relates to the need for  sunlight to regulate our body clock; we need to connect with nature to keep fit  and healthy.

Therefore, colour therapy as part of ecotherapy addresses our primal needs  and instincts that allow us to work in the environment that we have created.  Once these needs have been met, we as humans can move on to talk about these  issues on the thinking and talking level of psychology and therapy, in order to  bring about a positive change in our lives and the world around us.

For example, simply connecting with nature and getting out into green open  spaces for a bit of ecotherapy is for some people an achievement; the green  grass will help calm frayed nerves and bring harmony with the people around  you. The blue sky and natural sunlight will help suppress daytime production of  melatonin and help you sleep at night; it has been proven that the exercise is  also good for your mental welfare. Given this is an instinctive reaction to  nature all you have to do is get out of the house and take a look at it.
