Light is basic to life. But it can also be a source of healing through light therapy.

The connection between light and health is not new. Ancient cultures in China, Greece, India and Egypt used colour and light in their traditional practices for health, healing and wellness.

Today, there is increasing interest in complementary and alternative approaches to treat illness and disease; to promote health and wellbeing. We all want to live a healthier life, and light – with both positives and negative impacts – is part of this.

There are a growing number of light devices on the market and I’ll be presenting some in the blog). There are now many websites devoted to various light therapy treatments and I hope to explore most of them!


This blog will explore topics related to light & health:

Sunlight 

Blue Light

Lighting & Devices


The focus of this blog is to be informative, and to also include my own experiences of light as therapy.

Yes, ‘light as therapy’ is not yet mainstream. But it is becoming increasingly part of the conversation.
