Magna Bands - Relieve seasickness
Magna Bands relieve morning sickness, motion sickness, and sea sickness by applying pressure on the P6 acupressure point under your wrist.
Adjustable and reusable, one size fits all, 10" long x 0.8" wide wrist band uses a Velcro type strap closure. Pressure is applied with the use of a polished, 0.25" x 0.55" dia, hemisphere magnet which is permanently bonded to the band. Package of 2 bands, one for each wrists.
The Pc-6 point on the wrist ("Inner Gate" see below) is well known by all Oriental practitioners. The combination of pressure and a magnet, when applied to this point, creates synergism. The anti-nausea straps are now enjoyed world wide by sea and land travelers, active sportsmen, anyone who experiences motion sickness. Also helpful for seasickness. Natural and drugless.
The PC-6 point is located on the palm side of the wrist. To find the PC-6 point, place your middle 3 fingers on the inside of each wrist, with the edge of third (ring) finger on the wrist crease. The PC-6 point is just under the edge of your index finger (ie 1.5" to 2" from the wrist crease) between the two central tendons. Position the magnet button facing downward over this point. Adjust the tension on the band to suit your own personal comfort.
For best results, the PC-6 point should be pressed and released repeatedly. Press the hemisphere button firmly against the PC-6 point with the thumb for 5 to 1 seconds, release and repeat. Magna Bands can be worn all day.

Natural Remedies for Motion Sickness:
Ginger / Herbal: Ginger and other Herbs are natural products that have been used throughout history to ease symptoms of seasickness. The government does not regulate these products as they do with prescription medications. Although the government does not regulate these products, there is no evidence that ginger causes any problems if taken during pregnancy for the moderate relief of nausea or vomiting. As always, check with your doctor before taking any medication during your pregnancy.
Acupressure: Acupressure is applied by stimulating the P6 point on your wrist. This stimulation blocks the nausea signal from going to the brain. This is accomplished by wearing a bracelet with a button that stimulates the P6 point on the underside of your wrist. This can be very effective on some women but does not work on every expectant mother.
