He seamlessly blends comedy, mime routines, and practical insights in a fun way that ordinary folks unused to relaxation techniques can easily understand and apply to their own lives."

"I worked in the wellness industry for 15 years. I not only gave many wellness-based presentations but attended numerous ones. What I found so wonderful about Robert Rivest's program is that it is so easy to take away the idea of smiling and laughing as a strategy for dealing with stress and a means for improving your overall health."
