Japanese Businesspeople Manage Stress by Smashing Plates

From Ananova:

Stressed Japanese workers are paying for the chance to smash plates against a wall to ease credit crunch blues. Stressed workers are flocking to The Venting Place in Tokyo where they pay to hurl crockery against a concrete wall, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Katsuya Hara, who leads a team of chiropractors operating the therapy, said: “To break something, as all of us know from experience, is something extremely exhilarating and it helps bring down pent-up anger.

“We hope to become the new way businessmen and women relieve their stress.”

Sure beats getting into a brawl at your local corner bar.

  • I am Suggesting Vent it iPhone and iPad app for them.
