Color Healing

Chromotherapy, sometimes called color therapy, colorology or aromatherapy, is an alternative medicine method, which is considered pseudoscience. Chromotherapists claim to be able to use light in the form of color to balance “energy” lacking from a person’s body, whether it be on physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental levels.
Color therapy is distinct from other types of light therapy, such as neonatal jaundice treatment and blood irradiation therapy which is a scientifically accepted medical treatment for a number of conditions, and from photobiology, the scientific study of the effects of light on living organisms. The potential risk of retinal damage linked to chromotherapy has been shown by French skeptic and lighting physicist Sébastien Point Although Point considers that LED lamps at domestic radiance are safe in normal use for the general population, he also pointed out the risk of overexposure to light from LEDs for practices like chromotherapy when duration and time exposure is not under control. Chromotherapy is a pseudoscience which makes weak claims on being able to treat certain ailments. The individuals who try to pass this off as therapy have given themselves the title of a “chromo therapist”. These individuals make claims that are not backed up by experimental, peer-reviewed research that when exposed to certain hues people can feel better physically or mentally. This type of therapy has become a recent trend in the health and spa area. does not mean that this “therapy” is legitimate or safe.

These articles claim that color therapy is a holistic and non-invasive treatment, they claim that practitioners agree with the results of this “therapy” yet they provide no references. The individuals who spread false “evidence” about this therapy claim that the colors are reflected on our retinas then our brains interpret the information which then causes hormonal and biochemical processes in our body that can immediately calm and stimulate us. This pseudoscientific therapy being advertised as a legitimate procedure is dangerous. This practice is harmful on many levels, not only do individuals pay an immense amount of money for some of these sessions it could deter individuals from spending money and resources on actual medical practices that have been backed by scientific research.
