Top Questions we are asked:
1. What is Break Room Therapy?
Have you ever been so mad or sad that you wanted to throw something? Have you ever related to the famous fax-machine scene in the movie “Office Space”? Are you looking for a new way to spend some energy? Well, that’s why! The opportunity to physically release some emotions, and have some fun while you do it, is exactly what you need. We DO NOT encourage or support responding physically to things in your day to day life, but we DO support you coming to our facility to release your emotions in our safe place.
2. Can my friends, co-workers or family come with me?
Yes they sure can however no more then 2 people may be in a room at a time. You can however tag team in and out as often as you need to or others with you are free to watch from outside the room with our video monitors or safety windows.
3. What Do I Get to Break? Can I Bring Stuff From Home?
We have tons of options for your breaking pleasure! From tea cups to TVs and so many things in between. We have many different glass breakables, small electronic items and we are always interested in new ideas from you. You’re also welcome to bring those pictures of your ex or the vase he gave you for your last anniversary. Did you just leave a bad job and you need to get rid of some old office equipment? Have a little fun with it first!
While you are more than welcome to bring items from home, please note that not everything is safe/allowed. We do not allow liquids, explosives, tube TVs or items filled with ink/paint to name a few. All items you bring must be reviewed by our staff before being allowed in the room for smashing. Please give us a call to discuss any items you may be considering.
4.Do you take donations?
YES- we sure do however please note not all items are accepted. As noted previously bubble back monitors and TVs are not allowed as they contain lead and other hazardous materials. We also do not accept any furniture or larger appliances. We are always looking for dishes, glasses, flat screen monitors/TVs, ceramics, picture frames basically anything you can imagine that would smash. We are available by appointment during non-business hours or when open, items can be brought directly to us.
5. Is this only for people who are stressed or angry?
Absolutely not, there is a sense of entertainment value to this also. It is a activity unlike most other things you have likely done. We all deal with day to day stressors and its not healthy to keep it all bottled up and releasing it, in a safe space, is a better choice. So individuals dealing with pent up emotions will hopefully be able to release those here. But this isn't a place just for stress its a entertainment also. Also, we by no means imply our services to be a replacement for counseling we are just a space to be able to physically let go.
