"We know today that man is essentially a being of light. And the modern science of presently proving this. In terms of healing...the implications are immense. We now know, for example, that...light can initiate, or arrest, cascade-like reactions in the cells....and that cellular damage and physiological function can be significantly influenced by faint beams of light. We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between light and life, but we can now say, emphatically, that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on light."

                                         Dr. Fritz Albert Popp -- Nobel Prize winning biophysicist

In his studies of human cell communication, Popp demonstrated that normal living cells emit a steady stream of photons, i.e. biophotons, and hypothesized that they act as carriers of information in living organisms. Popp further observed that a cell will show an increased emission of biophotons whenever its functions are no longer in a state of balance. Any disruption in a cell's homeostasis can lead to a change in the balanced flow of information (light) in the body. As with the expected effects in the image of a pebble dropping into a still pond, a change in the biophoton emissions of one cell will eventually disturb biophoton emissions in neighboring cells. This transformation from harmoniously oscillating light eventually leads to incoherence, i.e. disease.

Light Communicates Through the Atomic Structure of Cells

Light waves enter through skin receptors. These receptors respond both to light and color (the inherent vibrational components of light). According to Popp, biophotons allow a faster means of impulse communication than the transmission of electrical impulses along neural pathways. With biophotons, the impulse spreads independently of nerve conduction to the smallest components of the organism through the atomic structure of the cells. In keeping with the principle of resonance, the smallest oscillation will initiate the greatest effect. Colorpuncture Therapy utilizes this effect to address and reverse pathological processes. Colored light can transmit information to the inside of the body via the disturbed zones and help restore malfunctioning systems by virtue of their resonance forces.

The Acupuncture System Provides an Entry Point for Light

The decision to use the system of acupuncture, with its skin points and meridian channels, as the means of introducing light into the energetic anatomy is supported by existing research:

  1. Investigators at the Institute of Clinical and Experimental Medicine in Nowosibirk, Russia showed that meridians can be a channel for light.

  2. Dr. Orm Bergold found that human photoreceptor molecules are not limited, as might seem logical, to the retina of the eye, but rather are ubiquitous, being found in virtually all tissue.

Because of their specificity of correspondence to organ/body structures and function, the use of acupuncture points provides a more efficient method of introducing light into the internal environment than had been used in previous light therapies.

Esogetic Colorpuncture Therapy

ECT is a system of light therapy that incorporates acupuncture. It was developed in Germany over 35 years ago by acupuncturist and naturopath, Peter Mandel. In contrast to the use of needles in acupuncture, colorpuncture restores cellular communication by introducing vibrational information into the body in the form of different colored light frequencies via the acupuncture meridian system, thereby reestablishing homeostasis.

Transmission of particular patterned sequences of light are designed to:


help balance and de-stress the nervous system


correct endocrine and hormonal secretions


detoxify the body


tonify and strengthen specific organs and tissues


slow or reverse degenerative processes


alleviate functional illness


relieve pain


integrate the mind and body, and more

Esogetic Colorpuncture Therapy utilizes an acu-light pen instrument with insertible colored glass tips. The procedure is noninvasive and extremely gentle. Treatment points are derived in a systematic fashion based on highly developed and specific energetic diagnostic and therapeutic principles.

Colorpuncture lends itself particularly well to the healthcare needs of infants and children, and to those, who for one reason or another, do not wish to use acupuncture needles.
