The Physiology and

Psychology of Colour

Dr Linda Mayer and Prof Rashid Bhikha

July 2014

Colours provoke emotional feelings and they are part of everything, from nature and rainbows to man-made creations. Colours have a physiological, psychological and social impact on a person’s health, wellbeing and status in the world; from the positive stimulating effects of warm colours, to the mental relaxation and soothing effects of cool colours.

Colours set the mood and tone of the environment by impacting on one’s senses and affecting one’s perception of the symbolic meaning which is being portrayed. It is a means of communicating one’s feelings and self-expression, and it is well known for its biological attraction.



A number of studies have elaborated on the relationship between the human body and colours. Light is energy, and colour is considered to be the interaction of energy and matter. There is a specific wavelength, frequency, and energy for each colour. Einstein maintained that the human body works in harmony with the electromagnetic/energy system of the universe.1
