I was fortunate earlier this week to have been included in the local National Guild Hypnosis chapter meeting here in Bellingham and Kelley T. Woods gave an informative and fun presentation on Laughter Yoga that was developed by Dr. Madan Kataria from India with a focus on how it relates to hypnosis. She is the coauthor of Laughing for the Health of It. Available on Amazon. It is describes as follow on the Amazon site, “Through the ages, laughter has supported wellness and made us feel good. Now, thanks to modern research and the global health craze of laughter yoga, we know exactly why. Laughing, even on purpose and without jokes, creates significant changes in both the mind and body. In Laughter for the Health of It, mind/body experts Dave Berman and Kelley Woods put this understanding in the context of their work as professional hypnotists. The result is a book that will teach you how to exercise your laugh muscles with easy-to-use techniques specifically designed for older adults, children, and anyone suffering challenges such as chronic pain, anxiety, grief, depression and sleep problems.”
This is not about just watching a funny show, but laughter for the sake of laughing called “unconditional laughing”. Did you know that 10 minutes of laughter equals 20 minutes of exercise on a rowing machine? Sign me up!! Other health benefits include lowering your blood pressure, decreasing your stress hormones like cortisol and increase your killer T cells to improve your immune system. Dr. Kataria’s website is
