Default Weird types of therapy

A bit of fun. Some might say all therapy is weird , but some novel types of therapy are legal in some countries. I might like chess therapy ( doubt I'd like nude therapy ). Magic mushroom therapy sounds good. Puppet therapy ? Maybe not. So what kind of weird therapy might you like if you had the opportunity ?

I like goats. More than therapists.

The EMDR is strange enough.

Weird types of therapy




I was looking for " Asshat therapy " as I need it for the idiot who just terminated me , but I got the suggestion for " Unicorn therapy " which could be quite good ~ and apparently does exist ( even if Unicorns don't )

Default Re: Weird types of therapy

I would like to have a therapist accompany me on all my wilderness backpacking trips. This is the place where I feel the most open and free emotionally, and often think my therapy would be so much more productive in that setting.

Equine therapy sounds amazing
Real or unicorn would do.

I always found grooming horses very therapeutic.

I like the entire therapy animal or emotional support animal movement. While not covered by insurance, they also don't charge per hour. Tough to travel with them on an airplane, as evidenced by the person whose therapy squirrel got her kicked off:

Passenger who brought emotional support squirrel on flight speaks out

Same with an airline passenger's emotional support peacock:

United refused to let an emotional support peacock board plane

And a fun blog post with pictures:

10 Weird Emotional Support Animals You Don't See Everyday

I'd be thrilled to find a turkey or a miniature horse with the passenger next to me. I love animals and I think it would make flying more interesting. They probably smell better than some people I've sat next to on planes, too, including my kid, who has puked on my H a couple of times.

Default Re: Weird types of therapy

There was a type of therapy back in the 60s - I saw a documentary on it - that I always wished I could experience. It was documented in a documentary called "Warrendale" (titled after the facility itself).

I imagine a lot of people would be horrified by the way they did therapy, but I freaking long for it.... I'm a weirdo.

A lot of physical contact and re-parenting between therapists & patients, who were children.
