How to Relieve Nausea with Acupressure
Stop that horrible sensation with a form of traditional Chinese medicine known as acupressure. Watch this video to learn how to relieve nausea with acupressure.
You Will Need
* Two hands
* Acupressure wristband
WARNING: If you feel pain when using acupressure, stop immediately. Pregnant women should not use acupressure.
Step 1. Press near your wrist
Take one of your thumbs and press it on the inside of the opposite wrist, between the two large tendons, about three-quarters of an inch below the point where your inner wrist meets your hand. This targets acupressure point PC 6, also known as Nei Guan, which affects nausea.
You can also press this point to relieve motion sickness.
Step 2. Keep the pressure on
Keep the pressure on for about a minute, and then move your thumb up to where your wrist meets your palm and press for another few seconds.
Step 3. Get a band
Find wristbands that press on the anti-nausea pressure point online or in some pharmacies. It's a hands-free way of achieving the same results.
FACT: Several studies have debunked the myth that women who have severe morning sickness more often give birth to girls.
