Laughter Yoga In Taiwan Hospital, John, Taiwan: On one of my visits to the Kuan-ming Laughter Club, a lady very excitedly told me how her physician Dr. Lin recommended her to join a Laughter Club for quick recovery from illness. He even showed her some photos of Laughter clubs and explained the benefit of laughter exercise.
I was amazed and very happy to hear this as most doctors will not waste their precious OPD time to educate patients on the effectiveness of Laughter Yoga being a great tool for mental and physical wellbeing. I immediately called to thank him for his kindness and his effort to promote the Laughter Club movement.
I also sent him some DVDs about laughter and happiness science and heartily invited him to join our Laughter club which is very near his hospital and is run by Yuan-Tou and his wife on a daily basis. A few days later, Dr. Lin came to the club with his friend Dr. Chen, a Chinese medicine doctor. They felt great after doing the laughter session and Dr. Lin was wondering how he could help his patients to get the benefits of laughter like him.
One morning, just before his OPD began, he saw his patients waiting with unhappy faces feeling tired and miserable. All of a sudden, a crazy idea came to his mind of leading them through a laughter session. This worked wonders as his patients felt great after the exercises. Inspired and motivated by the changes he noticed in the patients, Dr. Lin soon started his own Laughter Club wanting to promote good health and help people find more joy and laughter in their lives.
Dr. Son-Kai Lin is a renowned medical doctor of department of Rehabilitation Medicine of Taiwan Landseed Hospital.
