Chinese Reflex Balls

(redirected from Qigong Balls)
Two balls which are available in 4 sizes and are manipulated for their health-enhancing effects. In addition to limbering the fingers, they are believed—by stimulating the acupressure points on the hands—to enhance neural activity, improve memory and circulation, relax muscles and joints, tone internal organs, and balance flow of chi; they are specifically intended to prevent arthritis and hypertension. Chinese reflex balls may be made of various materials, including brass, enamel, and marble, and may be magnetised
