Laughter Club

First Thursday of every month, 6:00 P.M. at LCC
Elaine Boltz, a certified laughter leader, leads us each month in a form of laughter therapy, Laughter Club. She strives to help us use and enjoy playful laughter as a tool for healing. Our Club is not based on humor or jokes, but rather on forced or “fake” laughter as a form of physical exercise. Those who are new to the group may feel awkward at first, but the benefits soon become clear. As we laugh, the brain releases endorphins which serve as the body’s natural energy- boosters, painkillers and mood enhancers. We find that after an hour of Laughter Club our vitality is increased, our oxygen level higher, our pain reduced remarkably, and our thoughts have gone beyond our cancer to a pleasant place. Laughter Club is open to all, cancer survivors, caregivers and any who want to receive the benefits of laughter. Spread the word. Bring a friend. You will be so glad that you did!
