Justin led a 30 minute “Wellness Break” for our group of social workers. Since experiencing his Guided Laughter event, I have had MANY positive comments about his presentation. Everyone really liked that they could chose their own level of participation depending on their own preferences. It was unusual, fun but still a valuable learning experience for a group of people who’s job it is to make OTHERS feel better. Thank you Justin! ~ Trudy Soucoup, M.A.O.L.

Justin did an excellent job of showing us humor from the inside out, and the benefits of humor to healthy living. He was generous with his time and talents.

In a three week study, 200 call-center workers in Mumbai, India practiced Laughter Yoga.  They reduced their Systolic and Diastolic Blood Pressure about the same range that would be expected of starting a low-salt diet, losing 10 pounds or starting a blood pressure medication.

Research by Dr. Lee Burk of Loma Linda University found that even anticipating laughter has a physical reaction, lowering stress hormones Cortisol by 39% and Epinephrine (Adrenaline) by 70% and increasing Beta-Endorphins by 27% and Human Growth Hormone by 87%.
