WESTERN UKRAINE -- 'Coffin therapy' in Western Ukraine is offering people the chance to relax inside a casket.

A coffin producer who has been in business for over a decade has decided to branch out.

It gives clients a chance to get used to what the afterlife might be like, complete with a soundtrack of chirping birds and falling water.

Placing the lid on the coffin is optional.

For some, the 15-minute therapy session in a casket is a way to take time out from their hectic schedules.

The business owner says its a chance for people to think about their negative actions and repent.

Others aren't so convinced of the benefits of coffin therapy and are concerned it could lead to depression.
