Michael Reed Gach, PhD and Beth Ann Henning, Dipl., A.B.T. indicate in their book Acupressure for Emotional Healing, that common symptoms of repressed anger are:

  • shoulder tension
  • grinding of the teeth
  • neck tension and headaches
  • exhaustion
  • heart disease or stroke
  • insomnia
  • high blood pressure and
  • digestive problems

Although we encounter situations that raise the strong emotion we know as anger; it is possible to learn how to harness anger when it rushes into your awareness.

Here’s a quick tip proposed by Gach and Henning to help manage your anger in any situation.

  • Hold the middle finger of either hand and make a long “aaaaaah” sound while exploring your feelings…do this for approximately two minutes.
  • If you are in a public place, just hold the middle finger and exhale slowly through your mouth instead of making the “aaaaaah” sound.
  • Continue holding your middle finger and exhaling deeply for two minutes.
