How Laughter Can Help People With MS

Here is a great new article sharing the wonderful ways Laughter Yoga can help people living with MS.

A laughing matter about a serious subject

The trial is the brainchild of lead investigator Dr. Ted Brown, director of neurorehabilitation at the EvergreenHealth Multiple Sclerosis Center in Washington state.

“The goal of the study is to prove that laughter therapy is effective, that the hypothesis that it is effective is true,” Brown told Healthline.

Brown added he also wants to “spread the word” on laughter therapy, so people will give it a try.

Brown started offering a laughter therapy program for his MS patients in 2014, and quickly expanded the therapy to treat other neurological disorders.

“Many patients are disabled and can’t walk, or even have hand function.” Brown explained, “There are not a lot of exercise options for them, but they can do this. They can laugh.”

It would be wonderful to get more progressive doctors and organisations involved in Laughter Yoga.
If you have MS or any other neurological condition and want to try Laughter Yoga get in touch.
I’d be happy to set up a seated session
