These bullets are a whopping 50 mm. This makes them generally more comfortable in the hands of Westerners.
The Yin-Yang sign is a sign that comes from Taoism. Taoism is a Chinese philosophical and religious movement. In Taoism, people do not believe in a personal God as Christians do, but in a kind of primal force from which everything originated. Tao stands for the eternal and unlimited. It stands for the basis of everything. For good and evil, earth and heaven, the soul, the primal force, creation, nothingness and everything.
It is meant to bring man into complete harmony with nature and the universe. Taoism also believes in reincarnation; being born again. People are reborn until they have become one with the universe, nothingness and everything. Then that person has achieved immortality and the cycle of reincarnation ends.
In the sixteenth century Emperor Jia Jing had the effect of massage balls thoroughly investigated. What looks like a mindless game, the spinning of 2 metal balls in the palm of the hand, is in reality a technique with healing potential. Qi is the name for life energy that flows through our bodies. The channels through which this energy flows are called meridians; these are said to be connected to the main organs and senses in the body.
In the palms of the hands, there are also touch points or energy centers and by rotating the meridian balls in the hands, these reflex zones are stimulated. The energy that is released by stimulating these reflex zones in the hands is transported through the meridians to the various body zones. Through this diffusion of energy, relief of some discomforts can be achieved (but it is by no means a solution for all complaints). The meridian balls are available in different sizes; start with the smaller balls and try to spin them in your hands in both directions. When you are comfortable with this exercise try to spin the balls without them touching each other.
When you have developed some skill in this, you can progress to using larger balls. With larger balls you will learn to rotate the balls up to your fingertips. In time you will notice that the hands and fingers become more flexible. Change the direction of rotation regularly. The release of new energy in this natural way can make you feel more comfortable. The ability to concentrate and inner strength increase.
Inside the balls is a mechanism through which the movement in the hands creates a gentle vibration within the balls. Each large ball has a diameter of about 4 cm. They come in a set of two, in padded box with beautiful Chinese silk embroidery.
These chromed steel balls are easy to maintain. Should you not use the balls for a while, treat them as you would treat your car’s chrome work: Using a dry cloth, rub a small amount of oil or chrome polish over the surface of the balls to prevent rust.
The meridian balls come in a red, blue, green or black box.
