Genuine Baoding Balls from China
Genuine Chinese health balls imported from Baoding, China. Baoding balls date back centuries to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) and are widely used in Chinese medicine to improve dexterity, build strength, and relax the hands. There are many different techniques that can be used to work the balls: they can placed upon the palm of one hand with the fingers working to rotate them, or for more of a challenge, they can be worked whilst trying not to let them touch one another. With practice, some people even end up working three or four of the balls at the same time.
Baoding balls were originally made from steel but today most are made with a hollow centre. This not only makes them much easier to handle, but it also enables them to have chimes placed within them. When handled, the chimes within the balls play a harmonious sound to aid relaxation.
Our Baoding balls have been imported from our contact, Mary, who lives in Baoding. Her workshop produces these health balls and each one is beautifully made. Many of them are hand painted with a variety of traditional Chinese designs, and all come in a gorgeous presentation box so they would make a great gift for those who are fascinated by cultural items.
