  Introduction: Human life is influenced by colors in several ways. Principles of color design and appropriate use of each color are important elements in providing a suitable environment in health care organizations. This research was aimed to review color therapy and its application in health care organizations such as hospitals.
Literature Review:
This research was a review study which was aimed to introduce the color therapy and its influence on humans’ body and mind. In this study, we used 5 keywords, several search engines and 120 articles and 78 references.
Conclusion: Color therapy could be viewed from diverse aspects such as its role in different cultures. Decreasing physical and psychological disorders and its effect on working climate, industry, creativity and in particular medical and hospital settings are just some of the examples of color therapy. Although color therapy has several benefits, it may be injurious, when we could not use color therapy appropriately. Some physicians and psychologists have questioned color therapy and believe that its effect, if any at all, is temporally. However, color therapy, if used as a complement seems to be reasonable to improve patients’ mental state in hospitals and medical centers.
