Medical Research has shown that Laughter has enormous health benefits.

  • Laughter releases endorphins giving us the feel good factor.
  • Acts as an aerobic exercise – Ten mins is equivalent to 30 minutes on the rowing machine.
  • Unleashes inhibitions and breaks down barriers.
  • Great Team-Building Tool – enhances better communication.
  • Helps boost our immune system which helps us resist disease.

Using therapeutic techniques, playful exercises and deep breathing–it is possible to access your own inner laughter. Even if you haven’t felt like laughing for some time, like the human spirit, the spirit of laughter is strong–it can and will rise again.
