Color therapy is not new. It has been used in Eastern medicine for thousands of years to cure illness by using the frequency and vibration given off by different light spectrums. Eastern holistic practitioners believe the energy from light sources corresponds to energy in the human body. If centers of energy, called chakras, become blocked, illness develops. Theories on color therapy didn’t emerge in the United States until the 19th century when an American surgeon used different colored light to heal patients after surgeries.

Hypnotherapy, also known as hypnosis, is the use of relaxation and concentration to remedy physical and emotional health issues. Those who partake in hypnotherapy attempt to achieve a heightened state of awareness and attention. For those who achieve it, the focus is so great that they can be completely unaware of anything else happening outside of them. In this state, the person can think about specific things. Hypnotherapy is a way to concentrate on thoughts or activities that one might otherwise block out.
