Feeling sick from chemo
Nausea and vomiting are a common and unpleasant side effect of cancer treatment – often continuing for some days after treatment and impacting your daily life. These nifty bands are also praised by people living with cancer for providing a psychological boost thanks to the feeling of being in control.
How do Sea-Bands work?
Sea-Band is clinically proven to reduce nausea and vomiting symptoms. They are a pair of knitted elasticated wristbands, which operates by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist by means of a plastic stud.
The bands do not use drugs, meaning that they do not cause any of the side effects associated with anti-nausea drugs and can be worn on each wrist whenever you feel nauseous. They are suitable for adults and children.
Their use is encouraged by doctors and nurses, and they are used in hospitals throughout the world.
How to use your Sea-Bands
To ensure your Sea-Bands work properly, please follow the instructions below to position your wristbands correctly.
- Place your middle three fingers on the inside of your wrist with the edge of the third finger on the wrist crease. The Nei-Kuan point is just under the edge of your index finger between the two central tendons.
- Position the button facing downward over the Nei-Kuan point. Repeat the process for the other wrist.
- One band must be worn on each wrist to be effective. Sea-Bands can be put onto your wrist before you start travelling, or after you have started your journey.
- Sea-Band is suitable for adults and children.
