Our Chiming Harmony Balls can be utilized for hand exercise, therapy or part of a meditative session. Alternative Medicine advocates believe that the balls are beneficial for medical reasons when they touch pressure points or acupuncture points found all over the hand. Just like in acupuncture or shiatsu massage, the meridians (known as Jingluo in Chinese traditional medical theory) are the channels or pathways via which Qi (vital energy within each person) moves throughout the body. These Jingluo meridians also feature the acupuncture points. Hence, touching each meridian will produce health benefits. Your ten fingers are interconnected with the human cranial nerve, as well as important human organs such as the intestines, stomach, gallbladder, kidneys, lungs, spleen, liver and heart. Thus, when the meridians are stimulated, there is improved circulation of vital energy and blood in our bodies. Each box contains 2 beautiful, high-quality, gently chiming balls. They include hand made designs which depict symbols or characters related to harmony, health, and other positive forces.
