“Your mission is so important”
Patch Adams MD
Are you in a position to directly impact upon the quality of someone else’s life? Perhaps you are a carer or counsellor, work in rehab or in the medical profession?
If so, then simply adding a little more laughter to your day can have a truly transformational effect on yourself, your work and the people around you.
We intrinsically know that laughter is the best medicine, and the therapeutic benefit of a heart felt smile and a genuine laugh, when appropriate, for both carers and those within our care, should not be underestimated.
“What an amazing session. The feed back was great and we would love to have you back for any future events.” S. Elomari. An-Nisa Women’s Empowerment.
Some of the many scientifically proven benefits of therapeutic laughter include:
- boosted oxygen levels
- increased relaxation
- reduction in stress
- lowered blood pressure
- pain reduction
- developing emotional resilience
- reduction in depression
- improved concentration
- an ability to see the lighter, happier side of life as a result of endorphin release
- improved connections, relationships and communications
- boosted immune system
The truth is that laughter is very, very good for us in many, many ways and the scientific research is increasingly supporting this fact.
“We don’t laugh because we are happy, we are happy because we laugh.”
For some people life has become increasing difficult and like so many others, laughter may be nothing short of a distant memory. However, by enabling the physical and emotional release that comes from unconditional belly laughter and deep breathing exercises we can begin to see the joy returning to our life again and start to make our way out of the darkness and back towards a much more positive future.
“I feel very privileged to have seen this transformation in others many times before in my work and it is absolutely beautiful to see people wake up to the realisation that they too can be happy and well again.” Wes Floyd. Founder, Laughter Time.
Laughter is a fantastic way to improve the health, happiness and wellbeing of those who are within our care. It’s great for seniors, young people and adults alike who may have experienced some difficult circumstances in their lives, often as a result of relationship problems, loss or loneliness, physical trauma or drug and alcohol problems.

Laughter therapy quickly shifts our perspective so that we can change deep rooted thoughts, beliefs and behaviours and start to forge ourselves a new way of being present in life. Allowing more light-heartedness to enter our lives helps us to bring back the joy and connection with others that makes us feel well, happy and engaged with life.
If care is your business then learning to laugh freely and infecting others with your positivity really is the best way to restore good health, quickly, effectively and sustainably.
The great news is that this soft, yet very powerful skill for transforming lives can be quickly and easily learnt from just a short introductory workshop.
At Laughter Time we are committed to spreading therapeutic laughter throughout our community and we’d love to share it with you, your team or those within your care.
