Chromotherapy, or color therapy, is the science of the seven colors on the light spectrum. It works on various energy points to restore balance to the body and provide physical, emotional and/or mental healing. Color and light have been an integral part of healing therapy for thousands of years, tracing back to roots in Ayurveda, ancient Egyptian culture, and traditional Chinese healing. Light therapy has been used as a tool for alleviating headaches, allergies, insomnia, digestion, arthritis, nausea, and more. Our 'Chromatherapy Color Guide' below identifies each color's superpower.
