Esoteric tradition says that, in order to manifest, any thing must have a color and a form.
Each one of us has a favorite color and probably each one of us notices that by wearing clothes in a certain color or by simply admiring a specific color, our psychic state can change.
Cromotherapy, as we can understand from the name itself, is a science based on the study of colors and its aim is to value the therapeutic virtues of some of these colors.
