Coffin therapy for the living
December 4, 2012, 17:50 GMT
A Ukrainian man is giving people the chance to lie down in a coffin - to prepare themselves for the afterlife.
Stepan Piryanyk, from Truskavets, who has been making coffins for more than a decade, calls his new service 'coffin therapy'.
It gives people the chance to lie inside a casket for approximately 15 minutes - putting the lid on is optional.
Mr Piryanyk explained: "When you lay in the coffin, it feels just like a bed. It's the same sheets, the same pillow... a wooden coffin has its own aura inside."
The businessman has a room set up for his customers with several empty coffins to choose from, clients can recline as a soundtrack of birdsong and water falling plays in the background.
Client Anna Petrukhina, 51, said: "After hard working day you can come in and just relax - it's great. You go home in a completely different mood."
