Colour Breathing® is based on the use of seven Colour Breathing Disks®.
The seven “Colour Breathing Disks®” have been specially designed with subtle gradient effects for individuals to use with ease. They are a physical item to see and hold, yet visual point of focus, for individual and group led relaxation support sessions. Individuals enjoy using CBRT as a relaxation technique and using colour as a means of expressing how they feel.
Individuals use a “Colour Breathing Disks Easel Chart” as a visual tool to focus on (see image on top of front page) containing a set of seven coloured disks whilst a) becoming aware of their natural breathing pattern and b) relaxing their body in seven stages. The product is very safe to use, being of printed matter.
Since 1997, research and development has involved training a wide group of mental health, education and complementary professionals – the majority from within the UK, who have provided valuable case studies and feedback. Their feedback data has so far included a wide range of presented conditions and social care case studies including insomnia, GAD, the full spectrum for depression including PTSD and suicidal tendencies.
