Color Light Therapy -

"...Light is a nutrient and, like food, is necessary for optimum health.
Research demonstrates that the full spectrum of daylight is needed to stimulate our endocrine systems properly."
William G. Cooper, Cooper Foundation

Color Light Therapy helps correct imbalances of the body and mind using the natural color light spectrum.

Evidence shows that many ancient cultures incorporated color light therapy into their medicine and it has been valued throughout history as a remarkable source of healing.

Today, the therapeutic applications of light and color are being investigated in major hospitals, research centers, and detention centers worldwide. Results indicate that full-spectrum, ultraviolet, colored, and laser light can have therapeutic value for a range of conditions from chronic pain and depression to immune disorders.
