Chromotherapy, treatment with the seven colors of the rainbow, may have appeared in antiquity

Chromotherapy has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) since 1976, but, according to some historians, it appeared in antiquity – with Greeks, Egyptians, Indians and Chinese – as the first form of therapy. Speculations aside about its origin, what is known is that the technique has been very popular today as an effective method to balance emotions and act in certain areas of the body to avoid physical and mental problems.

The treatment is done by applying one of the seven colors of the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet – in specific areas of the body to treat the energy points that are called chakra. Thus, with each tone responsible for a certain function, both the mind and the organism return to balance so that they are free from emotional and even physical problems. However, it is worth remembering that chromotherapy does not replace conventional methods, it only works as a complement so that positive results arrive more quickly.

The function of colors

Chromotherapy sessions are done with a stick with a 25 watt lamp, which reflects the ideal color 5 cm from the skin for approximately three minutes – in the points of the body that need to be treated. As already mentioned, the tone that will be used in each chakra is chosen taking into account the specific characteristics of each one.
