Sahar Moussly, an Author and Master Behavioural Coach will conduct a Laughter Wellness workshop on 13th for people suffering from arthritis / rheumatism. According to recent statistics, over 20 per cent of the UAE population suffers from a particular type of arthritis.
In commemoration of “World Arthritis Day” on Oct 12, 2012; the ‘Move to Improve’ event is hosted by the Emirates Arthritis Association will take place on 12th and 13th October, 2012 at the Regis Hotel Dubai.
At the workshop, Sahar will demonstrate unique therapy and deep breathing techniques driven from pranayma followed by the popular laughter exercises giving a chance to attendees to try for themselves, enjoy and benefit from the exercise during this interactive workshop.
Stressing on the importance of this therapy; Sahar Moussly, Author, Master Behavioural Coach and Laughter Wellness teacher said, “Arthritis patients suffer from discomfort, pain, stiffness or fatigue and will affect their day-to-day lifestyle as one grows older. However, laughter wellness exercises can minimize its overall effects on their everyday life and has proven to be the best medicine without any side effects.”
Sahar added that laughter wellness exercises offer respite from stress and provide both physical and mental relief. Endorphins released as a result of hearty laughter exercises for extended period can help reduce the intensity of pain in those suffering from arthritis, spondylitis and muscular spasms of the body. The release of these beta endorphins also causes the adrenal glands to manufacture cortisol, which is natural anti-inflammatory and is brilliant for arthritis. It was medically proven that 15 minutes of laughter can give patients an extra two hours of pain-free sleep.
Laughter wellness sessions promote positive emotions and elevate mood in minutes helping in getting rid of all negative emotions, such as anxiety, depression and anger that weaken the immune system of the body; thereby reducing its capacity to fight infections
