Does the very thought of being in a car for more than an hour curdle your stomach? If you suffer from motion sickness, you know all too well how dreadful long car rides can be. If nausea, dizziness and cold sweats make you never want to get into a moving vehicle ever again, you might want to try some acupressure to help ease your symptoms.

Motion sickness can be quite an inconvenience. Although there are some things you can try to do to calm your symptoms, like changing your position, getting some air or looking toward the horizon, there are still times when nothing you do seems to work out. If you’ve tried everything you can think of to calm your motion sickness and nothing helps, this wristband might just do the trick. Keep reading to find out why some customers are calling this product a “LIFE SAVER."

Nausea relief is in the palm of your hands or rather wrapped around your wrist. These acupressure wristbands by Sea-Band are clinically proven to relieve nausea. While they can be used whenever you feel nauseous, they're particularly wonderful for motion sickness.

You may be wondering how exactly these bands work. There is a plastic knob sewn inside the elastic wristband which exerts pressure and stimulates an acupressure point that’s been proven to relieve nausea and vomiting. This natural, reusable and non-drowsy remedy doesn’t contain any drugs so there are no side weird side effects.

One Amazon reviewer and long-time sufferer of car sickness said this about the wristband: “It was then recommended by a family member to try these. With hesitation, I bought them and wore them the entire time. I did not feel nauseous ONE time. My boyfriend even pointed out on the way home that I was on my phone and not sick (reading anything while riding has ALWAYS been a no go!) I was able to look out the window and enjoy the scenery (typically I can only look at the road as looking out side window makes me sick). These will literally change my life as I can now enjoy traveling by car!!”

With these natural wristbands, you can finally enjoy those road trips without queasiness or the side effects of medication. Grab your own on Amazon today for under $9.
