RET - Laughter

 In Revitalizing Energy Therapies, I do include humor and laughter therapy to help you sustain a joyful spirit as healing works quickly and the body bounces back well from traumas, when we are able to be joyful. Here is one that I have found quite helpful!

 Laughter Therapy has a number of sources, one of which is Laughter Yoga, started by Dr Maden Kateria
It does not employ jokes, funny situations or comedies. So how do you laugh without any reason or provocation. Well, you choose to open your mouth and start to laugh. Kateria has called it laughter for no reason. Yet the effects of this laughter has been proven very beneficial to all our body systems, which I have gone into detail in older posts on this blog.

Laughter Therapy is certainly easier to do in a group. But it can be done when you're alone. In the next post, I will give you some suggestions to jump-start the laughter when you're alone! This video clip is from Dr Madan Kateria. Enjoy! PC Nicholas

Wow, this is interesting. I didn't know there's such a thing as Laughter Yoga. I know the saying, "laughter is the medicine", is this somehow related to how Laughter Yoga was established? I'd love to learn more on how to laugh alone. =D

Thanks for your comment.Yes, Dr Madan was doing a research paper on the healing effects of laughter. The yoga part came from his wife. Actually, your laughing alone could start with HaHaHOHOHOHaHa x5, similar to what is in the Video!
