About products and suppliers

A stress ball, also known as a stress relief toy, is a small toy made of soft material that one can squeeze with the hand to relieve stress or exercise the muscles of the hand. Despite its name, many stress balls are not spherical. Custom stress balls are molded into different shapes and take various forms. An example is the boobie stress ball that is designed like a female breast or the NeeDoh stress ball designed like a groovy glob and is great for people with autism, ADHD, and anxiety. However, not all stress balls are squeezable, some like the baoding ball, are solid and come in pairs, allowing users to roll them together to make a soothing sound and a smooth sensation feeling in one's hands.

Types of Stress Balls

The classic foam ball is made of soft, pliable material that allows you to squeeze and release the ball easily, allowing your hands to relax. They are also non-toxic and hypoallergenic, making it safe for those with sensitive skin. Gel beads are filled with tiny, firm gel beads that create a tactile sensation when they are squeezed and released. They are ideal for those who have sensory processing disorder. Marble massages are made of marble and designed to help you relax by massaging your muscles. The scented stress balls provide an aromatherapeutic experience. They come in a variety of fragrances, such as lavender, chamomile, and lemon. The smell is released when the ball is squeezed.

Benefits of Using Stress Balls

Many medical professionals advise using stress balls to increase blood circulation. Studies show that squeezing stress balls can raise your heart rate and increase the oxygen levels in your brain. They provide mini-workout for the body, especially stressed muscles around your wrist area and your arm. Stress balls also improve the nervous system. The nerves and the muscles stimulate and contract, making them stronger. They are a form of a good distraction. Using a stress ball can be quite helpful when you need a daily type of distraction in your routine to detox and recharge.
