Promotional Stress Balls

The majority of us will be confronted with stress at least once in our lives, however much we try to avoid it. This is where the use of promotional stress balls can assist with your customer's health.

It is commonly known that stress can seriously affect our health if left untreated. Most of us are confronted with stress even if we try to avoid it, therefore it is urgent that we deal with the problem and start to manage our stress before it's too late.

There are several different ways you can combat stress, and the majority of them do work. It is very dependant on how the individual person can handle stress. For example, some people may find that they need to undertake stress release sessions in order to combat their stress. As a short term stress managing tactic, the use of stress balls is very popular.

The use of stress balls is an ancient concept. Nowadays you can get a stress ball in any shape, and made from soft materials with a high-density foam inside. To use them, you need to squeeze and manipulate them in your hand. By doing so, you can release some of the tension builds up in your muscles, which is great for de-stressing.

Stress balls have been used in Chinese medicine for many centuries. Traditionally they were very heavy and made from metal, or often wood. They were sometimes hollowed out to include small balls inside which make a sound when rolled in the hand. In Chinese medicine, they work on the presence of Chi, which is believed to be an energy that permeates all things. It is believed that poor flowing Chi in the body could lead to ill health of mind, body, and spirit. The bells within a stress ball are believed to aid Chi and balance energies.

People often ask whether modern stress balls actually work. Research shows they are a powerful tool in the managing of stress. The continuous action of muscle contraction and relaxation and help to relieve muscle tension. As well as this, the rhythmic action of squeezing the ball can regulate breathing, promoting relaxation. They are also used in the rehabilitation of injuries, this is because they strengthen the muscles of the hand with continued use, and are used effectively as a physiotherapy tool.
