Room Circus Medical Clowning
Room Circus Medical Clowns use music, physical comedy, improvisation and circus arts to help transform the health care environment. Stress relief, distraction, reduction of anxiety and pain and empowerment of patients are just a few of the measurable benefits. In addition, medical clowning helps build trust between physicians and patients, especially when a patient is feeling frightened or in pain, and has been shown to have positive clinical outcomes. Room Circus clowns reach through the barriers, pull out laughter, and create a circle of trust that encompasses everyone in the room - providers, families, patients and staff.
MISSION: The mission of Room Circus is to alleviate the stress and isolation of hospitalized children and their families through the healing art of Clown, and to promote laughter and play as vital components of health and well-being.
