    I have heard it, that color therapy is used to draw the positive effects of colors to  balance the energy centers or the chakras  in human body. Imbalance in energy centers causes diseases. Color therapy is used to rectify such imbalances, whether  physical, emotional,  spiritual or mental in human beings.
    The spectrum of all colors is derived from Sun, which is the ultimate source of energy. This therapy was used in ancient times, but there are still many who believe in and practice this therapy.

    Among the uses for color therapy reportedly is to increase appetite, induce calm, and relaxation, as well as excitement, among others. When you think of calm, and tranquility, what comes to mind? Blue skies, blue calm waters. Degas knew this in his paintings of dancers:http://www.greatbigcanvas.com/view/blue-dancers-c-1899-pastel,bal37504/?s=G0oBS5cw5ETrDgEYd8R0kL3MsBrhzrbuXVE7HwlgjeHc8vjLp349OSM2OgRZkbd That is why he is considered a master, and classic artist of our time.When you think of happiness, what comes to mind? Yellow, bright sunshine, daisies. Excitement? Warm hues such as oranges, and reds. Many artists use these color combinations to induce a feeling, or a moment in time, that they want to convey, or capture.
    Healers use color in their attempt to bring about healing.
    For a poor appetite, include the yellows, and oranges in the kitchen, as well as it's time to wake up! (rise, and shine)
    To induce calm, and rest, one might paint, or include soothing colors, such as lavender, or blues in the bedroom, and bathroom. Blue is also the color of trust. If you want to be trusted, wear blue.
    White is the color that represents purity, that's why the medical community wears it, and angels are always depicted in white. Subconscious conclusion.
    Red is excitement and romance. Want to get noticed? Wear red. Want romance? include red in the bedroom. Feeling down or depressed? Add reds, yellows to your interior, or exterior. A pop of yellow, to your landscape wakes up a boring garden. My favorites? Daffodils, and tulips.
    Really look at the photo above, pink is considered relaxing.
    Great Question!!
