Laughter is an incredibly powerful tool and has limitless applications to a huge variety of people and groups.

In this study they looked at the benefits of Laughter Yoga
for those with Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers.

“Paired sample t-tests reveal statistically significant improvements
in well-being for adults with PD and their caregivers after attending an LY session. Therapists and other clinicians should consider utilizing this unique technique with adults with PD to address co-morbid low-mood conditions and include caregivers in the LY sessions for support and their own benefit.”
