Acupressure for Motion Sickness
Suffer from motion sickness? Try a bit of acupressure for nausea, morning sickness and travel sickness. You don’t have to forego a vacation on a cruise ship or cancel that road trip you’ve been planning. If you feel discomfort when you travel, or just need a quick remedy for occasional nausea, here’s a trick for you.
The solution is applying pressure to an acupressure point found on your wrist. Use your thumb and fingers to massage between the tendons of the wrist, about two inches from the where the hand joins the arm, on both sides of the wrist at the same time. You can also purchase and wear commercial motion sickness bands with a hard small marble in the correct position so that the acupressure point is stimulated. As a backup, remember ginger and peppermint can also help reduce the nausea blues. Next time you journey, try this simple, yet effective way to keep your tummy from tossing!
