Swiss Farmers Develop Unique 'Cow Therapy' to Deal with Stress


One new form of stress therapy is gaining popularity in Switzerland. Stressed out Swiss citizens are lining up to hug and pet cows on the grounds of the Zwygart family farm near Switzerland's Basel. The Zwygart farm offers cow therapy sessions, inspired by similar therapy techiques from the Netherlands, which help clients of all ages forget about everyday stresses by patting and cuddling the cute bovines while the calm and restive animals simply sit back and get pampered. The idea arrived to Sibylle after their cow gave birth to three triplets, a male and two females named Sven, Svea, and Svenja, who were destined for the slaughterhouse. Visitors are first taught about the animals and how to clean them, in order to ensure that both the animal and person are comfortable. The sessions last for two hours and cost about $50.
