Therapeutic Anger Room Therapy
Everyone understand how therapeutic it can be to smash things up, like an old TV set, maybe with a baseball bat or something similar, and the idea of having a place set to one side, in your home, where you store old dishes and things - ready to be trashed when you feel anger overwhelming you - is nothing new.
Problem is that once you have sated your rage, you have to go to the trouble of cleaning up the mess, then re-stocking things ready for the next session, which would not be as cheap as you think. Clients at the aptly named Anger Room, in Dallas, Texas however, have a place to go which involves nothing more than their time and money, and they love it.
In this superbly put together Anger Room customers can, with gay abandon. throw, wreck, smash or stomp everything in there, be it furniture or office equipment, just to blow off steam, this wicked concept brainchild of Donna Alexander.
Realising four years ago that this was a business with potential, she began with her own garage, recently moving to a storefront location, since when over three hundred happy clients have dropped in for a smashing time. Customers range from restaurant employees to attorneys, and even psychiatrists and patients.
There are also executives amongst them, everyone suffering the same thing in that they have issues, from partnership to workplace stress, all of which are helped by having anger sessions, which vary in price from the 5-minute $25 quickie to the 25-minute $75 heavy session.
Hospitality industry worker Anna Rhees, who served visited recently, served in Iraq, and is still in the Army Reserves. Her session lasted only lasted 11 minutes, because her destructive rampage tired her out, but she was beaming when it ended.
Alexander said everyone leaves the Anger Room with a smile, even if tired
They also leave the Anger Room with a smile. She is originally from Chicago, settling in Dallas2003, before starting her business in 2008. Her extensive history and background in Business Management, Marketing, Admin, Graphics and more helped her make her dream of the Anger Room business, derived from an idea she had at16, at last into a reality.
One of the most original and innovative of businesses, this place is growing in popularity, because actually going there and getting stuck in is, according to all who have done it, an unforgettable and unbelievably satisfying experience. Only the devotion and passion of the owner for this business makes the Anger Room the wondrous outlet that it is for those moments of rage that need occasional release.
If only such places were much more common, then perhaps a lot of the mindless violence that so often blights society could be harmlessly directed toward them, instead of unfortunate people. You know it makes sense, and can you not just feel the weight of that bat in your hand, as you savour the destruction you are about - quite legally - to do?
