Sarah Routman

     Sarah knew just what to do with her MA in adult education: After teaching high school and serving as Executive Director for two non-profits, Sarah chose to become a laughter professional. She is certified as a Laughter Yoga Leader and Trainer. And has been named a Laughter Ambassador by Dr. Madan Kataria, the founder of Laughter Yoga. 

     Sarah is also the Founder of ‘Laugh for the Health of It’ ( For over a decade, Sarah has wowed audiences with her expertise, enthusiasm and highly interactive laugh-it-out approach toward event planning, corporate wellness and personal stress management as a sought-after keynote speaker and conference presenter.  

   Sarah choreographs an experience that activates childlike play for a vibrant, uplifting and delightful result that has a ripple effect of positivity. Sharing laughter with Sarah becomes a catalyst for personal and group transformation, putting participants in the driver’s seat of their attitudes so they can have the influence and impact they intend. Thanks to her BA in English, and BFA in Photography, she is also the creator of four coloring books, author of The Laughter Planner, co-author of The Laughter Book, and contributor to Can't Someone Fix What Ails Me?: 21 Stories of Chronic Illness. She is also a published photographer and poet. Armed with her creativity, Sarah fills her presentations and workshops with an array of tools that are fun, exciting and guarantee a memorable, and personally transformative experience. 


Rachael Siegelman

     Rachael is certified as a laughter leader for over eight years. She has coached and laughed with hundreds of high school girls, senior adults, as well as staff and patients at Ronald McDonald House. She hosts a weekly Zoom laughter call during which she empowers her participants to create lasting change with deep belly laughs.

     Rachael has been able to utilize her background as a lawyer in the communications industry as well as  her experience designing and presenting interactive medical and legal workshops for thousands of health care workers to develop her laughter coaching business.

     Focusing on strengthening and empowering effective communication, Rachael uses laughter games in combination with positive self-talk to enhance self-care and relationships. 

     Rachael herself was not always comfortable laughing out loud, alone or in a group. Now she  shares the steps she used to overcome her resistance to laughter and play. She delights in helping people create a variety of ways to design and track their own laughter and play habits as they master laughing regularly out loud. 

Together we have created a book that will instruct, entertain, engage, and transform your relationship to laughter.  It will stimulate you, as it did us, to create regular laughter habits, and add  joy to all your celebrations. We invite you to laugh with us individually while you eagerly await The Laughter Book release in late 2022.

Our Vision

Laughter Champions ourselves, we are committed to sharing the message that laughter truly is the best medicine. We've done the research. The evidence-based science is compelling. We've been building our own laughter habits and laughing with others for over a decade and the results are exciting. Helping people overcome resistance to laughter and learn how to laugh intentionally when nothing is funny is incredibly fun and empowering. It puts you in the driver's seat of your life. We give you all the tools you'll need in The Laughter Book.
