Smash Therapy and Rage Rooms

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Have you heard about Smash Therapy and Rage Rooms?

A few months ago a facility in which someone can take out their rage on inanimate objects opened in the Houston area.

I don’t know how I feel about this concept. Maybe it’s not the concept, but the idea that some people have all this rage inside them. So much rage that they pay by the hour for the privilege of smashing stuff with hammers and other implements of destruction.

According to what I learned online, Japan opened the first Rage Room in 2008. Now there are facilities opened in many countries. They’re a growing business in the U.S.

The one in the Houston area offers 3 rooms: a Profanity room, a Polite room, and a Splatter room for children.

Smashing is available in the Profanity room which has obscenities spray-painted on the walls.

The Polite room also offers smashing, but motivational quotes are spray painted on those walls.

The Splatter room lets kids throw paintballs at “triggers” spray-painted on the wall. For safety, I read that a camera is in the room so parents/guardians can monitor the child. Hmm.

Would you go to a Rage Room? Would you take your child to one to work out his/her issues in a physically violent way?

I wasn’t surprised to read in Psychology Today that Rage Rooms are not a good idea.

Takeaway Truth

No thanks. It’s not my cup of tea.
