History of Colored Light Therapy
The use of color as a mood-altering effect in bathing dates back to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese, and Mesoamericans. Chromotherapy played a central role in everyday wellness and medicine practices in each of these communities. Both the Egyptians and Greeks used colored minerals, gemstones, crystals, and other naturally colored resources as remedies for ailments. They painted healing sanctuaries in different shades of color and directed sunlight through colored crystals.
In 1810, German scientist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s book Colour Theory delved into the psychological effects associated with each color. Decades later, American scientists Seth Pancoast and Edwin D. Babbitt continued Goethe’s research into the benefits of color theory. Today, studies of the health benefits of chromotherapy continue to be conducted worldwide.
