About Sea-Band Wristband Drug-Free Nausea Relief
Awarded the Bizziebaby Bronze Award in 2010/11 and 2012/13
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. 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. What’s more, cancer patients can also apply it themselves which can provide a psychological boost thanks to the feeling of being in control. Their use is encouraged by doctors and nurses, and they are used in hospitals throughout the world.

Would recommend without doubt
This product is very good.
Worked for he when I was feeling nauseous. I am going to try them wen travelling.
I must admit I was sceptical about these but I would have tried anything due to the sickness,when they arrived I put them on and within 5/10 minutes I felt good the nausea had gone totally amazed.
I am glad I bought this as it does help me when I feel sick. The only criticism I have is that the band could be made a little bit bigger because it can feel very tight and can’t have it on for too long
I have used these bands for travel sickness for myself and my children, but have found them to be very useful in aiding with nausea caused by Crohns disease too. My ex husband has t cell lymphoma, so I am going to recommend them to him too. Give them a go, they're drug free, easy to use, and come with instructions for use.
I used the bands after my latest chemo and definitely felt less nauseous than previously.
These really help me alot with my sickness after my Chemotherapy treatment.
My elderly mother in law (92) suffers terribly with nausea. The anti sickness tablets themselves cause side effects. I bought myself some bands to combat sea sickness. They worked well. I found them today and did a search to see if they'd combat any nausea. I was pleased to discover they do. My mother-in-law is trialling them now. So far so good
Helped me earlier on in the pregnancy and I had pretty awful morning sickness. If nothing it's something to distract you. But quickly became desensitised to it and the pressure point became bruised as I must have been pressing too hard on it. Not very discreet as the band is quite wide so people will notice it.
I bought this for my wife who suffers from travel sickness. She used it on four flights including two 10hr flights and it appears to have worked quite well. She didn't experience the usual travel sickness feeling on any of the flights. Quite comfortable to use but does leave marks on your wrists, which was the only flaw we could find with the product.
What a great wee product. Was a little sceptical that a wristband could cure my travel sickness, but as a time-starved part-time student who needed to be able to use her commute to get some reading done, I was ready to try anything. It worked first time. Even if a little nausea creeps in, a quick press of the pressure-points usually eases it off again. The description was a little misleading and I thought the box might only contain one band, but there is one for each wrist. There's also a little box to store them in. The only down-side is the marks they leave on your wrist for while afterwards.
These bands worked well for me on a rough crossing of The Bay of Biscay. I usually get sea sick easily.
