Chromotherapy, also known as color therapy, is a complementary therapy in which basic colors such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue or violet are used, for example, to assist in the treatment of certain diseases, such as fever, insomnia or psychiatric illnesses.

In chromotherapy, each color has vibrations, electromagnetic frequencies and specific therapeutic properties, which help the person to know and explore their interior, influencing the nervous system, according to the treatment goals. Understand how chromotherapy is performed and the main care.

It is important to note that chromotherapy, despite being offered by SUS as part of the National Program for Integrative and Complementary Practices (PNPIC), is not approved by the Federal Council of Medicine and does not replace medical treatment with allopathic medicines, without the prior knowledge of the doctor who prescribed it.
