Saw a post years ago about Russian scientists that in a test group used caning as therapy. The subjects were to have a sixty stroke caning once a week for thirty weeks. As most people know pain to one's body will release endorphins in the brain to help numb the effects of pain. This also applies to getting caned they say. The endorphins help relax the body and calm t the mind, so they have a positive effect on the person. The strokes are applied firmly, not full arm swing, but they still have their bottoms welted from the count of the strokes. What's your thoughts? Would this actually work? They claimed it was very effective in drawing people out of deep depression.
