What is chromotherapy?
Chromotherapy is a method of treatment that uses the visible spectrum (colors) of electromagnetic radiation to cure diseases. It is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health & harmony. Humans need the sun's light, which is broken into seven distinct rays to live. If there is an imbalance in these colors within our bodies, it can manifest itself in mental or physical distress.
Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to heal your body re-establish its natural balance. It accomplishes this via the full spectrum of visible light, each color of which addresses a separate bodily need.
Color and light have been utilized by healers for thousands of years. Color therapy possibly has roots in Indian medicine, ancient Egyptian culture and traditional Chinese healing.
