LaughterCare workshops are specifically designed for long-stay patients, children's wards, hospices, charities for those coping with serious illness or support groups for those in recovery. We can also adapt our workshop to offer training for health and social care staff. Laughter helps to distance people from the problems they're facing. It provides a way to master their situation and retain some sense of control. Laughter builds perspective and resilience whilst reducing anxiety and stress, helping whether it is in a battle with illness, as emotional respite for carers, or those coping with grief or separation. Aside from the emotional benefits, laughter has dramatic effects on mind and body which can help when battling ill health, be it mental or physical. Laughter releases endorphins, dopamine and serotonin in the brain which improve mood but are also 10 times more effective at eliminating pain than morphine. By raising pain tolerance, studies show that people who laugh often required significantly less pain medication during their recovery after surgery. Among many other benefits, laughter stimulates the brain, strengthens the immune system and releases natural, infection fighting 'killer cells'. It also raises disease-fighting immunoglobulins by 14% and releases neuropeptides which lower blood pressure. Laughter is important for those in elderly or hospice care. It can help them feel human when those around them are scared to have fun in their presence for fear of being in some way insensitive. Laughter can help to normalise their condition, put others at ease, allowing them the permission to laugh, making the sufferer feel less uncomfortable and isolated. LaughterCare workshops add joy, relief, optimism, resilience and positivity which can be particularly helpful through difficult experiences and loss. Even if it can't change the stressful situation, laughter, as an emotional release, can be one of the strongest weapons for coping. LaughterCare Workshops are a fantastic complementary therapy for patients (and carers), providing benefits in their battle with illness and recovery. **LaughterCare workshops are subsidised by donations and are therefore offered at a reduced rate compared with our other workplace workshops. Ideally we advise a maximum of 30 people per session. We will gladly accommodate more however you may want to consider booking a longer session and dividing into 3 workshops as it may be cheaper.**
