8 Reasons Why Stress Egg Exercises Are Important

1. Tension Release

Even at an advanced age, seniors will be able to squeeze a soft stress egg. By tightening your fist around the egg, you get to stretch the flexor, abductor, and the muscles are stretched and activated as they tense up. When the stress egg is released, all these muscles relax, and tension is released in the process.Any pressure built-up over the years, especially if one led an inactive life, is released and you will begin to feel better.

2. Nerve Stimulation

If you are experiencing tingling sensations, pain, weakness, and numbness in your hands and forearms, then a stress egg is the solution. These are characteristics of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which is manageable through simple hand and wrist exercises.The median nerve is stimulated by pressing the egg. The nerves are connected to your brain, the CNS, meaning that stimulation of the nerves at the extremities sends these activation impulses to the brain improving mobility.

3. Improves Muscle Strength

Stress eggs are effective in lowering the risk associated with pressure injuries, which for instance, tones muscles. People often assume that exercises increase the volume of muscles directly.What happens is that the activities enhance movement in muscles that result in the production of more nuclei. More muscle cells lead to better and bigger muscles seen through the toned muscles. Your susceptibility to injuries is decreased with the exercises.There is also improved wrist strength when the egg is squeezed as well as finger strength through stress egg pinching activities. Twisting exercises have been shown to enhance the hand's strength. Because of these benefits on muscles and healing, the stress eggs are used for physical therapy.

4. Improved Blood Circulation

The importance of exercises in improving blood circulation is mentioned in several articles. This is because of the correlation of blood flow and physical activity with good health.Active brains and muscles result from exercises that increase blood flow supplying sufficient nutrients to the cells and in the process enhancing mental and physical activity.

5. Treatment of Hand Conditions

Many diseases plague old age. Rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are common ailments affecting the elderly. Stress Egg exercises are effective in preventing fast loss of mobility on the hands by stretching the hand muscles. Active muscles and cells are also able to fight inflammation while the Eggs can control the progression of arthritis etc.Management of stiff arthritic hands by making fists with the squeeze eggs increases the flexibility of the hands, giving patients better days.

6. Attention and Focus

Occupied hands and mindful squeezing aids in directing attention to one thought or activity. When attention deficit is high the stress egg can help in keeping stress at bay, by making life more comfortable.

7. Management of Alzheimer's

It is being advised to keep patients with Alzheimer's busy and comfortable. Besides keeping constant reminders of images and items they love around the house, you may also consider buying a stress egg that will enhance their senses.

8. Mood Enhancement

Even if you retire happily, you will still face stresses that will put you down. An effective way of boosting mood is by squeezing a stress egg. The squeezing is associated with feelings of happiness because of the release of endorphins and pain relieving neurochemicals.

Are Stress Relief Eggs good for Arthritic hands? (Click for customer answers..)

Answer: I am not a physician, but I have found that my hands are not as stiff and maybe even a little stronger when I use these.- TL


Answer: I have not used these personally as I bought these for my 81 year old aunt. She was having difficulty with her hand strength and minor hand tremor, due to Osteoarthritis. The size was perfect for her smaller hands and the variable resistance allowed her to incrementally increase resistance. I have observed improvement in flexibility, strength and steadiness since she started using the eggs.– KD
