Wearing an acupressure wristband over a certain place on your forearm (called the P6 point) may help to reduce nausea and vomiting.
People use acupressure to treat many conditions. Acupressure is based on the belief that an invisible life energy called qi (sounds like 'chee') travels around the body along special pathways. When this energy flow gets blocked, people have health problems. This is the same idea behind acupuncture. But unlike acupuncture, acupressure does not use needles. You can do acupressure yourself.
Acupressure involves putting pressure on certain points on the body in the belief that this will free the energy flow. You can use your thumbs, fingertips or a band to apply this pressure. Acupressure to treat nausea and vomiting is usually on the P6 point. The P6 point is on your forearm, about the width of three fingers up from the crease of your wrist. By placing your fingers over your P6 point and applying pressure, you might prevent nausea. You may need to do this four times a day for 10 minutes at a time.
Sea Band is designed to apply pressure to the P6 acupuncture point therefore reducing nausea and vomiting in travel sickness.
Sea bands are also a great way to treat morning sickness and is safe and drug free.
