Appetite For Destruction?

Posted Jan 11 2009 5:02pm

Ever get so mad that you want to break something?

Do pent up feelings have you twisted in a knot?

Is your inner grief in need of an expressive outlet?

Well, you might want to head over to Sarah's Smash Shack  - where you can relieve such feelings by hurling breakables in specially designed "break rooms".  San Diego entrepreneur, Sarah Lavely, charges clients $10 and up to pulverize plates, grate glass, break bric-a-brac and express emotions. You can bring your own stuff to destroy or buy things there to break. Music is available, either your own or house supplied, as well as protective gear and clean up services.

I think that using physical force to release emotions can be cathartic. This idea reminds me of aspects of Gestalt Therapy. My two cents would be to keep in mind that the smashing experience should have a verbal element to it - expressing the feelings and thoughts with words as well as with physicality. Constructive destruction, so to speak. Otherwise, it's senseless violence.

I wonder if this trend will soon be seen in a franchise near you.

What do you think?
