Promotional Stress Balls

As a short term stress managing tactic, the use of stress balls is very popular.

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.
