It is possible that you or someone in your life suffers from motion sickness. Motion sickness is a common illness and the symptoms can be debilitating.
There are many treatments for this ailment, but none of them may work as well as wearing a pressure point bracelet for motion sickness.
This blog post will talk about what causes motion sickness and how to treat it with acupuncture points on the wrist.
The article will go into detail about what kinds of bracelets are available and how they might help alleviate some of the symptoms associated with nausea, dizziness, vomiting, headaches, cramps, and fatigue caused by traveling on water or in an airplane.
What are Motion Sickness Bracelets?
According to Dr. John Schumann, the inventor of the first motion sickness bands, “Motion sickness bracelets (anti-nausea relief bands, sea bands, or acupressure wrist bands) are another form of prevention for those who may suffer from motion sickness.”
The idea is that your wrist is an area where multiple nerves intersect which stimulate the inner ear. Irritating these receptors mechanically can help prevent nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness.
There are no side effects to wearing these bracelets other than the wearer needing to take them off periodically so they don’t become uncomfortable after a while or catch on to something else nearby.
There’s also no need for you to worry about them becoming too tight because each bracelet has a 360-degree stretch capability so it can fit any size wrist comfortably.
Do Motion Sickness Bracelets Work?
Yes, motion sickness bracelets or sea bands work by exerting pressure on the transversus abdominis muscle. This muscle compresses the internal abdominal contents and can reduce motion apparent to our senses.
This compression of the internal abdominal contents changes the nature of motion response in the vestibular system (the balance organ in our ears that responds to motion).
In this way, physiological motions are dampened allowing us to respond more effectively to external stimuli.
In other words, when you wear The Sea-Bands around your middle for twenty minutes before trying something where movement might normally trigger a feeling of dizziness or nausea–you’re not just massaging your abdomen – but also practicing a little calming deep breathing while at it!
How Do the Motion Sickness Bracelets Work?
We are all interested in knowing the science behind the working of motion sickness pressure-point bracelets or bands. The stomach contracts in response to the motion (these contractions are responsible for feelings of nausea).
Therefore, the motion sickness bracelets or bands work by increasing the time your small bowel takes to digest food.
This forces any nausea you feel, back up into your stomach. It helps retrain your brain that when it feels these waves, it needs to put off its queasy signal instead of assuming you’re about to throw up or feeling really unsteady on your feet.
How to Wear Sea-Bands Correctly
Men can wear sea bands by sliding their trouser legs over them, but make sure the band is not visible. Women should always wear them under their clothing.
Sea bands are often utilized to relieve motion sickness symptoms, which one already experiences when traveling on a boat or plane.
Studies have shown that by wearing sea bands you may reduce nausea and vomiting-related symptoms if you are prone to this type of motion sickness.
It is best to wear your sea bands firmly yet comfortably atop your wrist for optimal relief from motion sickness symptoms, but be sure that they will not interfere with movement while at work or on the road!
There’s no shame in using them discreetly indoors only after all! Once worn correctly it has been
