Utilizing Ai Chi and Laughter Yoga Alternative Therapies for Counselor and Client Wellness

30-Minute Poster Session
Suzanne Antoinette Whitehead 
Ai Chi is a water movement and relaxation program that combines the concepts of Tai Chi, Shiatsu, and Qi Gong techniques. It is traditionally practiced in a warm-water therapy pool of approximately 92 degrees, but the techniques can easily be learned and practiced on land. The slow, planned movements are combined with deep, diaphragmatic breathing to promote relaxation, decrease negative stress, and increase levels of endorphin production. Laughter yoga combines deep, yogic breathing (pranayama) with simple-to-use exercises that produce simulated laughter that quickly turns into genuine, heartfelt mirth. The exercises are easy to learn and can be utilized anywhere with clients of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities (and for counselor self-care).
