Often the easiest way to remove them is to bear down and squeeze them out, though if you’ve had them in for a while they might not come out right away. First things first, don’t panic, there’s no place for them to go.

Hi, my name’s Mariah Olberman! When I was in high school I had an accident that left me with some nerve damage on the right side of my body. This caused me to be unable to do any kind of exercise without feeling pain. The doctors told me that this would never go away because there were no nerves left to heal. However, over time I’ve learned how to begin exercising again and I’ve recently discovered ben wa balls. I created this site to help you learn how to use them safely and effectively! Email me at:
