Destructotherapy, is a stress-relief therapy that recently made appearance Soria, Murcia, and Bilbao, Spain. The firm Stop Stress started this therapy. In the therapy, the "patients" are equipped with powerful hammers, helmets, safety goggles, and a set of clothes. During two hours heavy metal music is played while the "patients" destroy whatever they can find, computers, mobile phones, cars etc. in a junkyard.

The website claims that the activity is not violent but anti-violent. Thus the very basis of this therapeutic process is the thought that the release of particular emotions and/or thoughts will actually prevent the use of them in a negative manner. If this process had not been developed, there is a very high possibility that those suffering from high levels of stress would cause personal or property damage.
