Color Therapy – What Is It and How Does It Work

What’s your favorite color?

Most of us get asked that question at various points throughout our lives. It is worth considering why we ask this – could it be that what color we associate with the most has some sort of effect on us, or says something about our personality?

Color therapy taps into the psychological effects of color. Participants are exposed to a range of colors via food, massage oils, colored lights, crystals or stones, etc. Some practitioners of color therapy use visualization techniques to help their patients. Different colors are said to affect different body systems or energies. Patients who undergo color therapy do so in order to experience restoration and/or healing.
