A Brief Introduction
Peoplemay experience stress in the most diverse life situations. In those situations, the stress may be brought about by both external and internal factors.
Since suffering excess amounts of stress may be quite the bit of a problem, there is no point in covering it up and pretending like it doesn't exist.
There are many stress management techniques available out there, and even a number of them is targeting people who have to suffer the inconvenience on a daily basis. One such method would involve using stress balls. There is a rich variety of Chinese stress balls available on the market, as they have proven more than effective in mild and daily stress management. To make sure that nobody gets left out, some balls are designed for people with larger, while others are targeting people with smaller palms. Alternatively, completely unique balls may be designed according the the particular customer's preference.
So what else can these balls be used for?
TheChinese have been using these balls for centuries now, and their range of use is surely broader than simple stress management. Namely, they have also been used for curing certain diseases such as arthritis, blood circulation issues, rheumatism and the like.
An anti-stress ball is, in appearance, very similar to a golf ball. Also similarly to the golf ball, it is very light (since it, too, is hollow). The balls are sold in pairs (one for each hand), and they appear to be made out of some sort of colored metal.
One of the ways in which they are used to cure excess stress would be the soothing sound they produce when they are in use. The relaxing sound may be heard when the balls are clanged together.
And how would they beused?
Aball is to be placed in either hand, and then each palm should clutch tight its own, as hard as possible.
Alternatively, the balls may be held together, in which case they are to be rotated either clockwise or counterclockwise to provide the stressed out person with a soothing effect. It is during this action that the soothing sound will also become apparent. The person is to make sure that the sound produced is pleasant and that it provides a certain melodic sound as well.
After a couple of minutes of this, the person is bound to start feeling both lighter and happier. This is also why Chinese stress balls are used as meditation tools as well.
Another benefit would be the fact that the use of these balls is also known to stimulate certain acupuncture points on the person's palms, and thus provide additional soothing as well as the healing of certain organs.
Another up side would be that the use of anti-stress balls provides the person with no side-effects to its effects, which cannot be said for the types of medication which are used to achieve the same effects.
Lastly, it is noteworthy that they are also used in curing high blood pressure.
