These Baoding Balls depict the dragon and phoenix. In Chinese history, the dragon and phoenix are complementary symbols and in the same as light and dark. The dragon is a symbol of the supreme ruler and power while the phoenix is a symbol of virtue and grace. The Chinese saying goes "When the dragon soars and the phoenix dances, the people will enjoy happiness for years, bringing peace and tranquility to all under heaven."
According to traditional Chinese medical theory Jingluo (this term refers to various channels in the human body through which vital energy travels and where important acupuncture points are located), a person's fingers are connected by a variety of channels to vital organs of the human body, including the brain, heart, etc. When used, the balls massage the acupuncture points in one's hands, contributing to smoother blood circulation, improved muscle tone, stronger bones, clearer thinking thinking, and a relief of fatigue and worry which will lead to a prolonged and healthier life."
