Health through Humor

Restore your employees' spirits with a humor and healing event

Only someone who has experienced real pain and chronic suffering can give you the motivation to learn to heal yourself with laughter. Terry Sand is one improvisational comedian who truly knows how crucial laughter is to health. For six years, Terry worked nearly every day using comedy to get her lupus into remission.

Laughter is the best medicine

In 1986, Terry was diagnosed with Lupus, a debilitating, genetically-linked disease that was attacking her immune system. It inflamed her joints, put her in chronic pain, and left her facing the dreadful prospect that she might have to leave her career in entertainment. But through her persistence and undying belief in laughter, Terry discovered that each day that she found a reason to laugh, her body became a bit more mobile and the pain eased a little. She kept a calendar for her improv work and began to notice that on the days she performed, her body felt a lot better for the next day or so. After six or seven years, the pain that used to shoot through her arms and shoulders, leaving her nearly immobile, had completely disappeared. Her doctors pronounced her "in remission."

Inspiration leads to "playshops"

Inspired by her own experience with the link between the creation of laughter and health, Terry has been sharing her story and her triumph with corporations, recovery groups, personal growth enthusiasts, and hospital staffs in her Humor and Healing playshops.

Who can benefit from Humor and Healing?

You don’t have to be in pain or have a debilitating disease yourself to benefit from a Humor and Healing playshop. Terry explains that people from all walks of life come through her workshops. Some people are recovering from a divorce or a relationship breakup. Others want to change jobs but their self-esteem is low. Still others find they just want to jump-start their life in a positive way. Perhaps, there are even people having a "bad hair day". It doesn’t matter--just about anyone can benefit from a Humor and Healing playshop.
