Chromotherapy, also known as color therapy, is a non-invasive energy medicine (vibrational healing) modality used for thousands of years to treat various illness and diseases. It is also effective in alleviating the symptoms of mental and emotional disorders. 

Chromotherapy uses the visible spectrum of light and color to affect a person’s mood and physical or mental health. Each color falls into a specific frequency and vibration, which contribute to specific properties that can be used to affect the energy and frequencies within our bodies.

While it is common knowledge that light enters through our eyes, it’s important to note that light can also enter through our skin. Chromotherapy provides colors to the electromagnetic body or the aura (energy field) around the body, which in turn transfers energy to the physical body. Given the unique frequencies and vibrations certain colors entering the body can activate hormones causing chemical reactions within the body, then influencing emotional and physical healing.
