CONTRAINDICATIONS DISCLAIMER

THE FOLLOWING IS IN RELATION TO ALL LAUGH THERAPY EVENTS (LIVE OR VIRTUAL) WHICH INVOLVE PRACTICAL EXERCISES, GAMES OR ACTIVITIES OF ANY KIND. THIS INCLUDES THOSE PARTICIPATED IN DURING A LAUGH THERAPY EVENT AND THOSE CONDUCTED OUTSIDE OF AN EVENT.

 

Laugh Therapy exercises are not a substitute for proper medical consultation for physical, mental and psychological illnesses and may not be suitable for everyone. Laughing involves some physical strain and a rise in intra-abdominal pressure. It is contraindicated for people suffering from...

  • Advanced (bleeding) piles

  • Any kind of hernia

  • Any persistent cough

  • Exercise induced asthma

  • Anything with acute symptoms

  • Epilepsy

  • Heart Disease

  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure 

  • Incontinence

  • Major psychiatric disorders (e.g., schizophrenia)

  • Severe backache

  • Pregnancy with history of bleeding and miscarriage

  • Retinal detachment or retinal haemorrhage

  • Acute chest infections

  • Or having undergone surgery within the last 3 months

 

This list is for guidance only and is not meant to be exhaustive. If in doubt, do not try them, and consult your trained medical professional for guidance. 

 

Anyone already undergoing physician-prescribed therapy should seek the advice of his or her doctor and must not reduce their dosage or stop any existing treatment without their doctor's guidance. Even a healthy person experiencing discomfort while laughing must discontinue immediately and seek expert medical help. Please use your common sense: no strain, no new pain.

 

The information compiled and shared here and during the Laugh Therapy sessions are intended for educational and general purposes only. Reasonable effort has been made to prepare accurate and useful information for the participants. We disclaim any liability or loss, personal or otherwise, resulting from the procedures and information shared on this website or during a live (or virtual) Laugh Therapy appointment, event, workshop or other such session. It is each individual’s responsibility to research the information and resources given to assess their suitability.

 

Participating in any of Laugh Therapy's live (or virtual) sessions voluntarily assumes that you have read and understood this disclaimer and have waived, released, absolved and indemnified the workshop facilitators and the event organisers from any and all liability for any and all of the actions, losses, and damages or otherwise. If you chose to ignore this advice, you are doing so at your own risk.

 

General Guidance:

Follow your heart, but take your brain with you. If you have any kind of concerning medical condition don’t ask for trouble.

 

  • Enjoy everything you do but respect your own limitations, and take it very easy. 

  • A smile is as good as a laugh if that is all that is available to you today

  • Stop immediately if anything becomes painful or uncomfortable, even to the slightest degree

  • When in doubt always ask a medical professional before engaging in laughter or any other kind of exercise regime

  • If you suffer from anything complicated, advanced, acute, severe, unstable or uncontrolled, then you should get written permission from your doctor before doing anything, including laughing

  • If you laugh more, drink more water. Laughing dehydrates. It may not be much, but considering that many people are chronically dehydrated, sometimes even a little can be too much

  • If you experience some heaviness in the head or mild to moderate headaches after laughter, that could be a warning sign. Always listen to your body. Be gentle next time…and drink more water

  • If during a session you feel sudden or new pain, please cease the activity, leave the session immediately, or advise the leader if you require assistance.

 

Always get the advice of your doctor first before starting this or any other exercise regime. If you chose to ignore this advice, you are doing so at your own risk.
