Chromotherapy, also called Color Therapy, Color Medicine, Colorology, or Cromatherapy, is a treatment that uses light energy i.e. photons in the form of color to balance energies in a person’s body to achieve physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health benefits.
Color Therapy is based on millennia-old beliefs in a variety of ancient cultures, such as India, China, Greece, and Egypt, that colors can influence a person’s functioning, health, and well-being.
Depending on the type of Chromotherapy used, practitioners claim that certain colors can add energy to a person’s body, heal certain discomforts or illnesses, balance Yin-Yang energy flows or Chakras, promote Life Energy circulation, and release emotional blockages, among other health benefits.
In fact, the concept of Chromotherapy is to supply colored light (each color is a specific form of energy) to the Electromagnetic Body, Biofield, or Aura that surrounds the body, which is then transferred to the physical body.
Color Therapy sessions may be carried out by using colored glass filters and laser light to direct colored light at the body or body parts, or simply by looking at certain colors which are thought to be beneficial.
