What if we told you that you can achieve all this with a revolutionary treatment that has no side effects of any kind and is also free? This treatment is within your reach and that of everyone. It's called laughter.


Has it never happened to you to get a good slap or fall to the ground and start giggling? In fact, our Children's Bandages are designed precisely for that: trying to awaken a smile that helps them get through the bad time of the moment.

Recent research in the area of ​​psychoneuroimmunology indicates that sadness and depression can serve as a valve for disease entry into the body, while laughter and a positive mood keep them away from our bodies. This happens thanks to the creation of endorphins.

The endorphins are substances synthesized by our body stimulating brain areas that produce pleasure. Its calming action is similar to that of opiates, so that laughter after the slap was not so silly, after all!

The human body releases its endorphins when we achieve a goal, when we sleep well, when we relax or meditate, when we eat something we like, when we do sports and, of course, when we laugh.

Laughter therapy is a psychotherapeutic strategy that positively affects the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social state of people through laughter.

In addition to the mere act of laughing, laughter therapy has among its objectives the development of a sense of humor and a more optimistic, flexible, and positive vision of life in general.

Laughter therapy sessions are group sessions and usually have the following structure:

  1. Preparation. In this phase, simple and very striking exercises are carried out that serves to warm up, give cohesion to the group and eliminate the sense of ridicule.
  2. During the unblocking exercises are performed with the muscles, breathing, and postures related to laughter to adapt the body and mind to what is to come.
  3. Dynamic. The interaction between the participants begins through exercises without physical contact, to create an atmosphere of cooperation.
  4. Laughter takes place in this phase, laughter in all its fullness. A multitude of direct contact exercises is carried out with the other participants.
  5. Recovery. It is time to lower the intensity of the most critical phase of laughter but maintaining a positive mental attitude and the pleasant emotional state achieved in previous moments. Relaxation and positive visualization exercises are carried out.

Surely in your city, there are associations or companies that are dedicated to doing laughter therapy workshops. We recommend that you try it, for sure you will repeat it.

Also, now that the weather is starting to turn bad, organizing a laughter therapy session at home with the kids can be a hilarious plan.


In 1995, Dr. Madan Kataria and his wife, the yoga teacher Madhuri, created this discipline in India, under the premise that we can all laugh without the need for a sense of humor, jokes, comedy or toxic substances.

Laughter yoga combines yoga breathing exercises with laughter-flattering exercises, and is based on the maxim “fake it and fake it until you make it”. In Spanish: pretend and pretend until you get it.

And it is that the sessions of this innovative therapy consist precisely of performing exercises that simulate laughter to achieve natural laughter. Or, to put it another way: force laughter into genuine laughter. Eye contact and group contagion do the rest.

Finally, we invite you to reflect: do we laugh because we are happy or are we happy because we laugh? Leave your comment!
