A Brief History Lesson:
During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), a blacksmith forged two iron spheres for the Emperor of China. These gifts were to be used solely by the royal family to balance Qi* (chi). Soon, the public gained access, and stress balls were born. Nearly a thousand years of thought stimulation, increased blood circulation, improved brain function, and stress relief followed.
*Qi is thought to be the ‘air’ or the energy coursing inside of you. It’s the underlying bases for Chinese medicine and martial arts. Keeping it balanced is the key to living a healthy productive life.
Our goal is to revive this ancient tool with modern design to provide a solution to modern problems.
