Light therapy Alternative light therapies Alternative light therapies are generally used to treat energy imbalances in the seven major chakras. Chakras are defined in Eastern systems of traditional medicine as energy centers in the human body located at different points along the spinal column. Each chakra is thought to absorb a certain vibration of light in the form of one of the seven colors of the rainbow, and to distribute this color energy through the body. When a specific chakra is blocked, light in the color associated with that chakra can be used to unblock the energy center and balance the flow of energy in the body. The seven major chakras in the body and their associated colors are: red: the root chakra, located at the base of the spine orange: the sacral chakra, located in the small of the back yellow: the solar plexus chakra green: the heart chakra blue: the throat or thyroid chakra indigo: the so-called "third eye," located in the head at the level of the pineal gland
