Color Therapy is the use of color to tonate the body and return the body to balance. Life on earth depends upon light from the sun, which is the ultimate source of all energy on this planet. Plant growth, animal development and behavior, and man's own physical and biochemical system depend directly upon light energy. The cycles of night and day and the changing light patterns of the seasons have a profound effect upon all life.
"White" sunlight is composed of all the colors of the rainbow combined. These seven basic colors follow an invariable sequence of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. It is of no surprise that our bodies have seven major energy centers with a specific color attributed to each, in order of the seven basic colors. Specific color is then used to tonate for specific imbalances due to the effects the color gives to each imbalance.
