drug-free nausea relief thanks to psi bands :: review and giveaway

Print pageEmail page

Psi Bands group and logoAnyone else out there suffer from motion sickness? (Heads up, this product is for you morning sickness people too!) While I have never actually gotten ‘sick’ from motion sickness, the overall headache, dizziness, nausea, and plain ol’ discomfort is more than enough to lay me out.

I still remember the first and only time I took an over-the-counter anti-motion sickness drug.  A single half dose left me unconscious for almost 15 hours and I quickly decided that I would NEVER repeat that experience.  Thankfully I discovered the seemingly magical anti-nausea preventative that is acupressure bands and I’ve been motion-sickness free ever since (well, as long as I remember to wear them).

FivePsiBands in packagingNow, not all acupressure bands are created equal and by far the best ones I’ve found are Psi Bands.  Besides for actually coming in attractive designs, Psi Bands are waterproof, adjustable, and actually comfortable!

If you’re wondering how Psi Bands work it’s pretty simple.  There’s a pressure point in your wrist where the Psi Bands are worn. Each pair (yes, you wear one on each wrist) come with instructions for properly positioning the bands on said pressure point.

Here’s a little video that shows the ‘adjustable’ features for Psi Bands (a big deal if you want a comfortable fit) ::

So, you may be wondering “Do these really work?” and I can honestly say that for me yes they do.  I’ve also had friends suffering from morning sickness who I’ve recommended acupressure bands to that have been helped.  But don’t just take my word for it, actual scientific studies support the use of wrist acupressure as a relief method for nausea from motion sickness, morning sickness, anesthesia, or chemotherapy (learn more here). Yay science!

Cherry Blossom Psi BandsSo, whether you’re a fellow motion sickness sufferer, or want to get some pregnancy induced morning sickness under control, I suggest checking out Psi Bands and giving wrist acupressure a try for some drug-free relief. If you get some Cherry Blossom Psi Bands like me we can even match in our nausea-free style! 😉

    These would be so helpful for theme parks, cruise ships, long car rides, all of which I (try to) enjoy often–I like Racer Black!

    I like the daisy chain for me and the racer black or block party for my son. When we go on field trips he can sometimes get car sick AND we’ve been whale watching and on a tall ship so that’s when we’d use them…

    I like the cute cherry blossoms but I’d probably get something my husband could use as well. I have major morning sickness right now so I’d use them right away! My husband gets motion sick so he’d use them in the future.

    I would like to check out the color block psi bands. The daisy chain ones ended up being more of a brownish burgundy rather than red; otherwise I’d like them.

    I’ll use them for motion sickness and morning (actually afternoon or all day) sickness.
