Once her queasiness faded, she set out to create an acupressure bracelet that would help others who suffer from nausea. She calls her product Psi (pronounced “sigh”) Bands. Designed with fashion in mind, Psi Bands are colorful bracelets that adjust like a watch band and are worn on each wrist. Attached is an adjustable disk that applies pressure to a spot called the P6, or Nei-Kuan, acupressure point. The bands are waterproof, affordable, and reusable. They come in contemporary designs that work for both men and women.
The bands really do seem to work no matter what is making your stomach do flips—pregnancy, motion sickness, chemotherapy, or anesthesia. We love the fact that the bands work without the use of drugs. What could be better for pregnant women, travelers, and those recovering from other medical conditions? Sure beats sipping ginger ale and nibbling crackers.
