Laughter Therapy applies laughter theories and practices into multi-generational, multi-cultural, systematic health and happiness programs. We do this by promoting attitudes that support mental and physical health, thereby helping primary treatments work better, and by teaching methods that are uplifting, simple, effective and powerful. We believe these methods make a remarkable impact both in the overall health and wellness of every individual we teach and serve, as well as making the world a better place; one filled with laughter, kindness, tolerance, forgiveness, and harmony. We promote a worldwide movement for health, happiness and peace by encouraging everyone to tap into the positive benefits of laughter and humor, which are natural pathways to the mind and body, thereby directly related to mental and physical health.
The benefits of laughter are plentiful and far-reaching. In today’s culture, people are more stressed, less relaxed and often lacking in work/life/family balance. Life is meant to be enjoyed with passion, zest, enthusiasm and in the camaraderie of like-minded individuals. Laughter therapy can bring the happiness back into your life, while helping to relieve or eliminate many health problems that are associated with stress.
Members at Memories+ Adult Day Program engage in Laughter Therapy which is offered by our very own Program Manager Lisa.
A Laughter Therapy seminar at the Alberta Therapeutic Recreation Association conference proved pivotal. Inspired, Lisa became a Certified Laughter Leader.
