Light therapy can provide more benefits than skincare. A method called Chromotherapy is a form of therapy, where light is used to heal certain areas of the body. There may be debates that say it doesn’t work, but then you wonder why many hospitals use it to treat babies with jaundice or why professionals would recommend it for those who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
There is a distinction between mainstream and alternative light therapy treatments. The word Chromotherapy is typically used for alternative healing methods, while mainstream uses the term “light therapy.” However, both terms use wavelengths of light to accomplish their purpose.
Each color of light targets different areas of the body
As mentioned, Chromotherapy is a term typically used by those who practice alternative medicine. It is believed that when we have ailments, diseases, or suffer from different conditions, it is due to the imbalance we have in our body. For example, if someone suffers from back pain, blue light may be used to “balance the energy” in that person’s body to relieve them from their pain.
Over the next few posts, we will go over the benefits of each color through our skin as well as our overall health. So stay tuned as we amaze you with the true beauty and benefits of light therapy.
