Brooklyn Native Brings Healing To Nassau With An Unconventional Twist

S For Story/10505865
NEW YORK - s4story -- ZenSmash is a new rage room located in Long Island New York. Only 1 of 2 in the area & Black owned. After a year of pandemic blues many have been struggling with mental health issues & or mounting stress more than ever.

According to the CDC
  • By late June 2020 40% of American adults reported struggles with mental health and or substance abuse
  • Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among people age 10-34 in the U.S. and the 10th leading cause of death in America
  • The most common mental illnesses are anxiety disorders which affect 40 million adults
 Mental health issues have been amplified by the pandemic and while no substitute for therapy, rage rooms serve as a new and amazing non-traditional source of release fun and fitness.
Entrepreneur Shana Hall-Earl was very familiar with the concept of a rage room as she researched and wrote it on her bucket list. It would take a trip to Los Angeles in August 2021 with her son in tow that would lead to a life altering axe throwing and rage room experience. Meant to keep her son busy, this would inspire her to bring the business idea back home.

Hall-Earl emerged determined to find a way to offer this experience to others in need of this cathartic release. This ultimately lead to the birth of ZenSmash.

While most rage rooms are set in a kind of construction-site setting trashed with shredded plywood spray painted with targets, mostly red-colored and very angry. Shana took a different approach providing a more modern, urban sleek aesthetic with black metal plated walls, which also make a great sound when hit with ceramics.

"My logo is a lotus flower inside an explosion. I wanted my customers to leave ZenSmash with the same feeling I had when I left the rage room, a light, calm feeling. My colors are blue and black. Black for the abyss that you send that negative energy to, and light blue for the calm you feel after." Hall-Earl said. "To be the first on Nassau county is powerful because there is such a diverse demographic to serve here. What we all have in common is the need to expel pent up energy and ZenSmash is going to be the way."

ZenSmash's unique theme is the GlowSmash offering: Smash glowing ceramics under black light. The play on this unnatural but recognizable light makes for a pretty cool look and some added fun.

ZenSmash opens Saturday October 30th. You can stop by 337 Hempstead Turnpike, Suite 1, West Hempstead NY 11552
