Squeeze Balls for Stress Relief Therapy and Hand Exercise.
Squeezing the ball activates the muscles of your hand and wrist; releasing the grip allows the muscles to relax. The repeated pattern of grip and release helps to alleviate tension and stress.
A stress ball or hand exercise ball is a malleable toy, which is squeezed in the hand and manipulated by the fingers, ostensibly to relieve stress and muscle tension or to exercise the muscles of the hand.
The squeeze ball targets muscles in the wrist, fingers, and thumb flexors. The rhythm of repetitive movement can increase grip strength, improving overall fine and gross motor skills..
