Sea-Band The Original Wristband Adults -- 1 Piece

For Morning Sickness & Travel Sickness. No Drugs No Side Effects. Used by Doctors and in Hospitals. Re-Usable. One Size Fits All. The Power of Pressure. Nausea or feeling ill queasy and wanting to vomit is not necessarily caused by a problem in the stomach. Travel sickness is a good example of nausea due to a condition somwhere else in the body. Any form of transport can cause nausea dizziness and vomiting. Our sense of equilibrium lies in the ear and works hand in hand with eyesight. When messages to these organs don't agree and the brain is confused by the extent the body is actually moving the resulting symptom is one of nausea. Daniel Choy was a ship's doctor on an ocean-going yacht when the vessel ran into rough weather off the North American coast. To everyone's consternation the seasickness pills had been washed overboard. Dr Choy remembered a traditional remedy from his youth. “This sounds crazy” he told the sailer “but if you press this point on your wrist you might feel better.” They obeyed and to their astonishment many reported that the nausea subsided returning only if they removed their fingers from the point. Not surprisingly it is not always possible or even comfortable to stay in such a position whilst travelling which is why Sea-Band was developed to tackle this problem. Acupressure has been used in Chinese medicine for over 4000 years. Sea-Bands work by applying continuous pressure by means of a plastic stud on the P6 (Nei-Kuan) acupressure point between the two central tendons near the wrist.

Works great

"We got these for traveling on a cruise and on a plane. It prevented me from getting sick when others around me were and when I would usually get sick. You can't leave it on too long or it can make your wrists sore and you need to be careful you place it in the correct place. If you put it in the wrong acupuncture point it can increase blood pressure from what I have read. As long as you follow instructions it is worth a try."

"Wore them on a five day cruise and never got sick. Now I wear them on our road trips to help with car sickness. I have two pairs. One in the luggage and the other in the car. I won't be caught without them!"

"Love these so much I carry them around with me. They really do seem to help with nausea. They are supposed to help with motion sickness and morning sickness, but I haven't had to use the bands for either of those. They are convenient, easy to put on and side effect free. Wouldn't be without them!"
