Laughter Therapy

Do you remember your last giggle? Maybe it was some time ago? So then, smile and above all laugh!

I laugh, you laugh, she laughs, we laugh, you laugh, they laugh!
You'll tell me ... "But what is she saying, women's magazines are really  nuts "
And I will answer you "It is a proven technique and already applied! "

To begin: a little discussion on hormones that are not foreign to us!

Noradrenaline ... this naughty little thing!
The sympathetic nervous system (triggering the automatic reactions of our body, without the intervention of our will) induces the release of it into the blood. Notably by the adrenal glands, located above the kidneys.
This good friend is norepinephrine and causes acceleration of the respiratory and cardiac rhythm.

Dopamine does not look good!
Produced in the upper part of the brainstem, emitting a pleasant emotion. Hmmm (little orgasmic onomatopoeia just for you!)

We do not mess with Acetylcholine ...
It is the turn of the parasympathetic system (antagonist of the sympathetic system) to take over by ensuring the transmission of this hormone in the body.
Releasing muscle contraction and inhibition of cardiac activity.

The sympathetic system also causes its release into the blood by the adrenal cells. It causes an acceleration of the heart rate, an increase in blood pressure and dilation of the pupils. The excitement has come to a climax…

Serotonin ... this sweet nursery rhyme
This causes a good mood effect and promotes sleepZzzzz.

The divine Endorphins
They have an analgesic action (calms the pain), while slowing down the respiratory rhythm, giving us an effect of well-being.

That's where Bob Marley's Positive Vibrations come from

Now that we have seen these boorish hormones, let's go to the pure and hard facts.
The autonomic nervous system (responsible for functions not subject to voluntary control) is associated with the action of laughter. This causes the release of adrenaline and norepinephrine into the bloodstream.

Adrenaline induces an increase in the excitability of the body. As for norepinephrine, it causes the constriction of the arteries. That's why our blood pressure and heart rate increases.
Finally, it is glucose, which is liberated abundantly in the blood, generating a message ordering the release of endorphins in the blood, thus fixing on the pain receptors (thus inhibiting the perception of pain).
Yes, this little instructive summary did not really appeal ... But I hope it helped you to glimpse this exclamatory device!
Interesting ... where does laughter therapy come from?
The EMSB, the principle with 4 key elements:
EMOTIONS: Emotional Intelligence and Hygiene
MENTAL: humor, positive psychology, neuroscience
SPIRIT: mindfulness, playful sophrology, relaxation, visualization, meditation
BODY: laughs, games, songs, dances, rhythms, clowns and laughter yoga

Elements straight out of therapy ... RIGOLOGY?

Dating from 2002, it is a certain Corinne Cosseron, instigator of the yoga of laughter in France, who develops this new therapy!
To overcome the problems of expression and release of emotions, she sets up this therapy combining a laughing yoga session and laughing meditation.
Emotional release and mindfulness are de rigueur in order to give our body the expression of a natural laughter and our joie de vivre.
In addition, the techniques taught during this therapy are easy to access, allowing the participants rapid appropriation of the different exercises, as well as the possibility of repeating them outside the workshops taught in laughter therapy.

A long-lasting therapy!

An ignored therapy ... A lack of recognition?
Indeed, the evolution of techniques is long. Psychoanalysis, hypnosis, cognitive and behavioral orientation are recognized as schools of thought.
But laughter therapy is not yet indexed!
Beat stress and negativity with this therapy of all qualities!

Hahahahahahaha! (I'm already better ... little wink of enrollment)
