The word, “Komboloi” is a type of Chinese stress ball designed to reduce and eliminate stress.  In today’s society, things move at sonic speed.  Between work, school, raising kids, and just day-to-day living, stress mounts quickly.  By using Chinese stress balls, you can have some peace and quiet in your life rather than constant chaos. 

These stress/health balls have been in use for around 2,000 years.  Although they started out primarily to be used in martial arts training, today they can be used everywhere you go and for all purposes and levels of stress. 

To use the Chinese stress/health balls, you can hold them in your hands while closing your eyes and envisioning a harmonious world.  The goal is to bring your mind and body into unity so that calmness can be achieved.  To achieve this, you must focus on something subconscious, something that does not preoccupy your mind or body. 

The stress balls used back in history were used in pairs and were actually very exotic in design.  In fact, the Chinese saw these balls as a form of art.  These balls were designed for wearing all the time and were difficult to break.  Although the balls are a bit on the heavy side, they are constructed with a bell type mechanism on the inside, which produces a therapeutic sound when using. 

Chinese stress balls are available in a number of sizes so whether you have a small, dainty hand or a large, muscular hand, you will find stress balls that fit perfectly.  The benefits of using the Chinese stress/health balls are many.  In fact, the Chinese will tell you that using these balls is similar to acupuncture of the hands in that they exercise the same points.  This stimulation is what helps reduce the stress and promote good health.  Other benefits include: 

  • Improves memory
  • Stimulates blood circulation
  • Relaxes muscles and joints
  • Relieves joint stiffness and muscle soreness
  • Relieves stress
  • Promotes sleep
