There are thirteen members of my high school graduating class on Facebook. I remember exactly one of them. One or two others give off a vague whiff of familiarity. But the majority? No idea who they are. Their names do not ring the smallest bell.
We can guess that at least some of the women have gotten married, and have changed their names, but what of the men? Shouldn’t I recognize some of these people? A little? Supposedly I went to school with them for four years or more. I guess I did a better job than I thought of blocking out those unpleasant years. (There are, I should say, quite a few people from my high school that I do remember; these folks just haven’t joined Facebook yet. Which is fine.)
Google didn’t help much, although it did lead me to this Web site belonging to a probable former classmate. On this site extolling the virtues of “naturopathic medicine,” I was introduced to my new favorite word: “colorpuncture.” Colorpuncture! Naturally, in the manner of all aimless Web surfing, I had to stop exploring my former schoolmates and start learning about this.
What is colorpuncture? Well, it just happens to be a “revolutionary evolution in holistic healing and one of Europe’s most popular new alternative healing disciplines.”
In a Colorpuncture treatment, frequencies of colored light are focused on the skin using a hand-held acu-light tool with specially designed, hand-made interchangeable glass rods which emit different colors of light through a focused tip. Each color consists of different wavelength frequencies of light and therefore communicates different energetic information. Treatments include a specific set of points in a sequence using a prescribed pattern of colors. As the light is absorbed by the skin and transmitted along energetic pathways or meridians deep into the body, it stimulates intra-cellular communication which supports healing.
Colorpuncture is also a powerfully holistic healing system which offers a unique new way to get to the very roots of many health problems. It is designed to address the non-physical origins of illness as well as its physical symptoms. Colorpuncture therapy uses precisely targeted light treatments to gently unlock and release emotional trauma and blocked soul information which often underlie our illnesses. Patients report not only changes in their bodies, but improved emotional outlooks and a clearer sense of life direction after treatments.
You would think that if colored light can “stimulate intra-cellular communication” and “support healing,” that you could prove as much in a lab — you know, double-blind testing, the whole silly scientific rigor thing — but I can’t find anything online that says this has happened. Still, you have to give them all sorts of points just for the name. Colorpuncture! That’s genius.
Update: I see now that colorpuncture not only promotes healing, not only prevents you from getting sick in the first place, but is also an alternative to plastic surgery. Is there anything colored lights can’t do?
