Chromotherapy: the importance of colors for a person’s mental and physical well-being


Colors have always been a part of all people’s lives. Some fascinate us, such as those that artists pour onto their canvases in the creation of their masterpieces, others frighten us, such as the color of blood that we cannot but relate back to physical pain, and still others manage to soothe us, such as the green of an immense expanse of lawn or the soft blue of the sky. But what else can we say about colors ?

In response to this question, chromotherapy, or the science that deals with the meaning of colors and how and to what extent they influence the activities of the human mind, was born. The areas in which color therapy works are many: food (the color of various foods), clothing, personal care (more and more often we hear about spas offering showers with color therapy) and even on home furnishings. In fact, color and color graduation play an important role in the lives of individuals, with strong repercussions on our mood. So let’s find out what the main colors of the light spectrum are and what effects they have on our bodies.


Red has always been regarded as the color of fire, blood and sexual excitement. It is related to strength, vitality and passion. In fact, it has been shown that painting the walls of a home red can increase blood pressure and accelerate the heart rate. It is also used in color therapy to combat burns and rash disease, as well as for asthma, depression, and impotence.


Blue is the opposite color to red, and is contrasted with it because of its calming, soothing and refreshing effect (clear reference to water). For this reason, blue is used to combat phenomena such as stress, anxiety and insomnia. It is also believed, although this is obviously not scientifically proven, that blue is also useful against inflammation of various parts of the body, depending on its different shades.


Green is obviously the symbol of nature, plants and trees. It thus represents the sense of harmony and balance of existence, but it has also always been associated with the feeling of hope. According to proponents of color therapy, green would have positive effects on the nervous system by calming migraines and nerve-related diseases, as well as spreading a general feeling of harmony and calm.


According to chromotherapists, yellow would represent the intellectual part of the brain. Its benefits would include aiding concentration (useful for study and work), but it would also be able to instill joy, a sense of protection and happiness.

Clearly, it should be pointed out that in the color therapy approach, there is nothing scientifically proven to prove the actual beneficial contribution that colors would have on our health. However, it remains interesting and fascinating to learn about and observe this particular methodology aimed at patient care.
