(Scroll down for video) If you find yourself anxious about how it feels like being dead in a coffin, there is no need to worry.
A company is offering coffin therapy, according to press reports.
A Ukrainian coffin maker is helping potential customers get comfortable with the coffin, but not too comfortable. Stepan Piryanyk, a coffin maker in Truskavets, Ukraine, offers fearing customers the chance to rest in peace, with a coffin therapy session.
The backstory during the treatment that usually lasts 15 minutes, is as creepy as you expected. Piryanyk explains:
"There was a time that our fathers kept a coffin in the attic. Then our grandmother, who did not have an attic came to us because she lived in an apartment. She asked us to do something about it. She wanted me to make something she can place in her apartment. So I decided to make a couch casket. She slept in it at night and gradually got used to eternity.”
“Customers relax with the lid open or closed. It is their choice,” he said. “They leave in a peaceful state of clarity and bliss,” he added.
"After a hard day of work you can come and relax. It's great. You go home in a completely different mood," Anna Petrukhina, 51, told news reporters. Piryanyk is looking to expand his market.
According to press reports, each session costs $25. Either way, everyone eventually ends up being a client.
