A new form of therapy in China has patients lie in coffins in order to relieve their stress, as a group of volunteers are participating in the act as a special form of experimental psychotherapy.

By being cramped into the small space when they lie in coffins, the object of the patients is to try and become “reborn.”

Tang Yulong, a consultant of the psychological counseling center, says people who suffer from psychological problems can be helped by simulating death.

This can help one come out of the coffin as a new person.

Patients climb into a coffin, pull a white blanket over themselves and stay still.

Before they are “reborn” they are required to write down their last words.

Five minutes later, a sound of a baby crying breaks the silence and the consultant opens the coffin with a cheery tune.

More than 1,000 people have tried this special psychotherapy so far. 


The 35-year-old Yulong warns that the therapy is not suitable for everyone, and patients put forward for the treatment are carefully selected. 


Yulong became involved with the therapy after experiencing mental health issues and trying to commit suicide several times.  After receiving the therapy, he came to volunteer as a manager at the clinic.

Getting patients to lie in coffins in order to simulate their deaths can actually get them to appreciate their own lives as opposed to taking them. Who knew?
