What is Color Therapy?
It is also known as chromotherapy and is a method of treating ailments through the use of color. Color is simply light of varying wavelengths, thus each color has its own particular wavelength and energy. The balance of the energy in each of the body’s chakras is very important for health and wellbeing.
Red relates to the base chakra. Orange the sacra chakra, yellow the solar plexus chakra, green the heart chakra, blue the throat chakra, indigo the brow chakra and violet related to the crown chakra. Color is absorbed by the eyes, skin, skull and the energy of color affects us on all levels, that is, physical, spiritual and emotional. It can be done by shining an appropriate olor on an area of the body. It can also be done through the eyes by looking at a particular color, though this should be done with the utmost care to avoid any strain on the eyes.
