A special psychotherapy service that lets people experience death is gaining popularity in Shenyang, capital of Liaoning province.
More than 1,000 people have tried this special psychotherapy — being brought back from “death” to life — the Shenyang Evening News reported on Nov 20.
People who suffer from psychological problems or heavy pressure can be “reborn” by simulating death with the help of psychologists, according to Tang Yulong, a consultant of a psychological counseling center.
There is a coffin in a 5-square-meter “death experience room” at the center.
Yeaaaaaahhhh… this might be taking things a bit too far. I don’t quite get why lying in a coffin will simulate death and how that helps you deal with current life problems. Sounds like a gimmick.
