COLOR THERAPY

Color is radiant energy, which is visible. It appears as different colours due to presence of photoreceptors called "cones" in our eye. There are

3 kinds of cones

: one for blue, one for green and one for red color. Combination of these colors leads to perception of other colors. When the light rays of color enter our bodies, they stimulate the various endocrine glands especially, the pituitary and pineal glands causing a variety of physiological processes.

This

concept of colors affecting your body

is part of the

ancient Chinese technique "Feng Shui"

.
