How to apply Sea-Bands

Sea-Band provides effective drug-free relief from nausea including travel, motion and morning sickness. It has also been found to be effective for the symptoms of nausea resulting from anaesthesia and chemotherapy. Applying your sea-bands can be completed in two quick steps.

Step 1: Find the acupressure point

(Called the Nei-Kuan Point). Place your middle three fingers on the inside of your wrist with the edge of the third finger just below the first wrist crease. The Nei-Kuan Point is located underneath your first (index) finger in-between the two wrist tendons (for children, use their own fingers).

Step 2: Position the plastic stud facing inward over the Nei-Kuan Point

Repeat for your other wrist. One band must be worn on each wrist to be effective.

Sea-Band takes between 2 and 5 minutes to become effective: A better result is achieved if the band is in place before the journey commences. Greater relief can be gained if necessary by applying extra pressure to the plastic stud. Sea-Band is suitable for use by adults and children from the age of 3, may be worn continuously and can be hand-washed using a mild detergent.
