The Flat Belly Ball is a compact round ball that's been designed to help users perform a form of Chinese belly massage. When you roll this ball along your stomach in clockwise circles, it may help you relieve any gas or bloating you're experiencing. This gentle rolling motion is also commonly considered to be relaxing and soothing. To use this soft green plastic ball to try and make your stomach feel better, all you'll need to do is fill it with hot or cold water first.
The cost of Flat Belly Ball is $19.99 and the shipping is FREE!

To get started with your ball, open the small round valve that's located on one side, and use your tap to fill the ball with hot or cold water. Depending on how much water you put in, your ball will weigh between approximately two and eight pounds after you're done filling it. Once it's full, remember to screw the valve back on tightly!
Next, lie down with your ball and place it on your belly, just under your sternum. Move the ball in gentle clockwise circles for a length of time that feels comfortable to you.
You don't have to empty your ball when you're done using it, but it's best to do so to avoid leaks. To empty your ball, simply remove its valve again and dump the water that's inside back into your sink. Following that, find a safe place to store your ball, away from sharp objects.
The Flat Belly Ball is only about the size of a bowling ball and weighs less than most of those. In fact, when each ball is completely empty of water, it'll weigh only one pound. Therefore, most users will be able to carry one around in one or both hands, and this ball is small enough to be transported any vehicle, too. Keep in mind that it's best to deflate your ball before transporting it anywhere away from home.
Each of these balls has several massage rings around its exterior, which may add to your enjoyment of your Chinese massage. These rings are large enough to put a bit of pressure on the stomach, but they aren't so large that you'll feel as if they're digging into your belly.
Due to pressure testing, it's been determined that each Flat Belly Ball will support up to 300 pounds of weight. As a result, if you'd like to lie on yours, you'll be able to do so without breaking it, as long as your weight doesn't exceed that level of poundage. If you don't feel like using your hands to massage your belly, you may want to get into a push-up position and gently slide it back and forth (in a clockwise direction) over the ball.
If you use this ball for at least several minutes every day for five days, you should experience some change in the way you look or feel by the fifth day. This change may not be drastic, and it may not be apparent to people who aren't close to you, but it should be at least noticeable to you.
To get a true Chinese massage, you'd have to visit a practitioner's office or get someone to come to your home. However, you'll be able to give yourself close to the same type of massage at home—or virtually anywhere you choose, including outdoors—with your Flat Belly Ball. You won't even need to visit a gym. Your ball will always work the same way, regardless of what clothing you have on, so you can wear the clothing that makes you most comfortable or what's socially acceptable in a given situation.
Whether you've got a stretched-out belly because of a recent pregnancy or a change in weight, using this ball may help you pull your belly in and relieve the bloating that often accompanies stretched skin. If you do crunches, sit-ups or any other abdominal exercises from the manual that's included with each ball, your chances of flattening your belly will only increase.
If you're able to relax and flatten your belly with your Flat Belly Ball, you may be able to fit into more of your tightest clothing without struggling and straining to put it on. Especially during your menstrual cycle (if applicable), you may find that you're able to zip up your least forgiving pair of jeans more quickly. That's not to mention the fact that without a belly full of gas, you'll likely look better in any piece of clothing you decide to wear, even if the fit is only moderately tight.
As mentioned, each of these balls comes with an exercise manual that'll provide you with exercises for your abdominals, legs, and back that you can complete quickly at home. Each one also comes with a food manual that will guide you towards the food choices that will help you keep your belly looking flat and feeling calm.
Although the look of your belly might change a lot once you've started using this ball regularly, it's unlikely that you'll lose a significant amount of poundage. If you follow the food guide and do the exercises in the included manual, you may lose some weight, but that's not guaranteed. You may stay the same weight but appear to have a flatter belly.
If you aren't careful about keeping your Flat Belly Ball away from sharp objects, a hole might form in it. A hole like this would likely be difficult or impossible to repair, so it might render your ball completely useless. If you've got pets, you'll need to make a concerted effort to keep it away from their claws, so it doesn't suffer this fate. You must also be careful that you don't poke a hole in your ball with a fingernail, especially if you've got super-long ones.
You can still use this ball after eating a large quantity of food (or drinking a large amount of liquid), but be extra-gentle on your stomach if you do, so you don't become nauseated. Users should also be careful when using this ball on a completely empty stomach, for the same reason. Ideally, the best time to use this ball is when your stomach is slightly full, but you're not anywhere near stuffed.
This ball is meant to be filled with water only. You should not attempt to fill it with any other liquid, or a substance such as sand, even if you think lifting a ball full of sand can help you get into shape. Filling the ball with something other than water might cause it to burst or cause damage to its materials.
