Embrace calm, live relaxed.

If you’re feeling anxious, worried or just need to unwind, “Baoding Meditation Balls” are the ultimate mindful play tool for promoting relaxation or relieving stress at work, home, the car or any other situation.

Believed to be as old as the Ming Dynasty, these metal balls used to be made of iron and are sometimes referred to as simply “Baoding Balls”, “Chinese Medicine Balls”, “Chinese Meditation Balls”, “Chinese Iron Balls”, “Zen Meditation Balls” or “Relaxation Balls”. They are carefully crafted with the perfect size and weight to roll over key acupressure points in your hands that help you relax.

Unlike traditional western stress balls, you do not squeeze “Baoding Meditation Balls”. Instead, you rotate the therapy balls in your hand, switching their relative positions repeatedly. This simple act of mindful play is super easy to incorporate into your daily routine and can offer a variety of mental and physical benefits such as improved memory and brain function, blood circulation, stress reduction and dexterity.

When you first start, your movements will be slow and the “Baoding Balls” will remain in constant contact. As you continue to master this relaxation technique and your hand muscles strengthen, you will be able to rotate them faster, in different directions or even in ways that put more force on particular fingers or finger joints. Eventually, you’ll reach a point where they don’t even touch at all and you can even consider upgrading to larger balls.

Each one of these phases is uniquely satisfying to watch, hear and feel. Some even believe it’s also great physical therapy for conditions like arthritis or trigger thumb, or the recovery of hand strength and dexterity, and motor skills, after surgery.

With a 45m (1.8in) diameter and approximate weight of 378g (or around .8lb), these gorgeous stainless steel “Baoding Meditation Balls” are the perfect size for any beginner adult (a beginner child may want to use a slightly smaller set). Each set of baoding balls comes wrapped in a gorgeous wooden box that looks amazing on any desk or shelf. This is a great gift for someone who has everything.

NOTE: Please consult your doctor before using mediation balls as a form of physical therapy.
