Default Sea Sick.....Relief Band

The wrist bands work. It is a form of acupressure using a point called Master of the Heart 6 (or Pericardium 6),the point is about 2 thumb's widths up from the wrist crease on the palmar side if the hand (about where your watch rests).There are much cheaper devices such as elastic bands with a plastic bead to put pressure on the point but electrical stim works well.In addition to being a physician I am board certified in medical acupuncture and use this point often in treating nausea and vomiting from a number of causes.FYI trivia!
