Psi Bands

Sigh of Relief

When California mom Romy Taormina was pregnant, she suffered from terrible nausea. She didn’t want to take drugs. But “other options were limited,” Romy recalls. She eventually found relief in a surprising way—through acupressure, a 5,000 year-old practice of applying pressure to certain parts of the body to relieve pain or discomfort.

Sigh of Relief

When California mom Romy Taormina was pregnant, she suffered from terrible nausea. She didn’t want to take drugs. But “other options were limited,” Romy recalls. She eventually found relief in a surprising way—through acupressure, a 5,000 year-old practice of applying pressure to certain parts of the body to relieve pain or discomfort.

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.
