Sea-Band is made from a washable, knitted and elasticated fabric, which applies pressure to the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist with a plastic stud. Pressure on this acupressure point has been proven to relieve nausea and vomiting. Because the bands are drug free, they don’t cause any side effects and can be worn on each wrist whenever you feel nauseous. They’re suitable for both adults and children and each pack comes with two Sea-Bands, one for each wrist.
Please follow the below instructions to position your wristbands correctly to ensure your Sea-Band is effective:
- Place your middle three fingers on the inside of your wrist with the edge of the third finger on the wrist crease. The Nei-Kuan point is just under the edge of your index finger between the two central tendons.
- Position the button facing downward over the Nei-Kuan point. Repeat the process for the other wrist.
- One band must be worn on each wrist to be effective. Sea-Bands can be put onto your wrist before you start travelling, or after you have started your journey.
