Using Chromatherapy in everyday life
Have you ever walked into a colored room, and felt uplifted? Relaxed? Antsy? The next time your feelings change when entering a room, perhaps you should stop for a moment and notice the colors that are around you. Chromatherapy is the application of specific colors that are used to be therapeutic. The colors can be anything from painted walls, fabrics, wallpapers, to the use of colored light bulbs. Anywhere there is color, you can incorporate Chromatherapy.
Many fast food establishments have commissioned a color expert to purposely create a color scheme to get customers in & out as quickly as possible so they can make as much money as possible. Most casinos also have elaborate colors such as reds & purples to attract & draw clients inside to gamble. Color has an effect on us all, whether we realize it or not. Colors have been a subtle, yet strong force in the shaping of human emotion & behavior. There is a theory that all light has a frequency or energy level, and every color a frequency of it's own. Science claims that energy cannot be destroyed, only recycled. Therefore, every color has an effect on every individual.
