 Lisa Wessan Biography

Lisa Wessan was most recently the Mind-Body Geriatric Specialist in the Senior Care Center at Elmhurst Hospital-Mt. Sinai Medical School in Elmhurst, New York, providing individual and family therapy, group work, and motivational programs for the elderly and their caregivers. Since she left New York City, Lisa has been in private practice and working as an inspirational author, speaker, counselor and coach.

Prior to her career as a counselor, Lisa was an internationally published science and health journalist for 20 years, specializing as a biotechnology analyst. She had a successful career at Genetic Engineering News and as editor of the monthly Biotechnology Press Digest.

Her interest in immunology led her to the field of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), better known as complementary or integrative medicine. PNI led her to work with holistic MDs, eventually producing talk shows in radio and television on complementary medicine. Lisa still has one foot in broadcasting as the producer and on-air host of the weekly cable television show Z Lighter Side of Transformation.

While doing research on stress management techniques in graduate school for clinical social work, Lisa explored the research on therapeutic uses of laughter for caregivers. During post-graduate research on laughter therapy, Lisa became double certified to teach Laughter Yoga and Laughter Meditation in medical settings. Her work has been featured on CNNs Paula Zahn Now, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Daily News, The Boston Globe, The Lowell Sun, ABC News 20/20, and in many television, print and radio interviews.

Lisa facilitates a variety of inspirational keynotes including Team Building with Laughter, Laughter Therapy for Caregivers, Relaxation Techniques, and Clutter to Consciousness, to name a few.

She is also a monthly guest on Thinking Out Loud, a radio talk show on health, recovery and longevity. If you would like further information, please visit her website, www.MirthMaven.com.

Speaking Topics
  • Team Building with Laughter

    Team building is a serious and challenging undertaking, and in order to succeed requires a large contribution from everyone. Using humor and laughter during the process causes oxytocin to be released, which stimulates bonding and group cohesiveness. Laughter also relieves tension and makes the whole process fun. In this training, you will learn the core ideas for these techniques:
    • How to use humor to create a collaborative team environment where people are motivated and ready to contribute.
    • How to use humor to stimulate listening, trust, cooperation, creativity, and spontaneity.
    • Practical techniques to "lighten up" the office environment.
    • How to have more fun at work and easy stress management techniques.
    • How to use humor to examine and overcome obstacles…how to turn defeats into victories! Each session also includes a relaxing sequence of Laughter Yoga and Laughter Meditation. These techniques are proven to be easy and workable, and they relieve office stress, relax muscles and give your insides a good laugh-induced massage.
