Chromotherapy, or color light therapy, is a non-touch practice of using light emitters to shine colors onto chakras, reflex zones, and acupuncture points along the energy meridian channels.

The application of color light in a trained hand is embraced in massage practices, wellness centers, spas, animal care, and for personal use at home. This ancient art is now being understood through scientific study.
