Color Therapy

Color therapy might be just thing to help soothe what ails you.

The concept of color therapy dates back to ancient Egypt.

Estheticians swear that each color has its own energy and healing power. Blue and purple lights are used as an anti-inflammatory.

Lysa Kustek of Le Petit Retreat Day Spa says, "The green light would actually help cleanse and purify the person inside. If you were to have like fibromyalgia, we would use the yellow light which stimulates the lymphatic system."

The red light is very stimulating, so if somebody is already agitated or nervous you don't want to put the red light on them.

Doctors at Cornell Medical Center are looking into the possibility of using green light to treat lung cancer.
