Colour and health

Since ancient times the use of colours was linked to the particular connotation ascribed to each chromatic shade. As of today we know that colours, or more precisely the waves that constitute them, affect directly on our physical, emotional and mental states, with a positive or negative impact.

Chromotherapy is the science that assesses the effects of chromatic stimuli on the physical and mental wellbeing of the individual.
