How does it work?
The healing principle behind Sea-Band is the ancient Chinese art of acupressure. Sea-Band Drug Free Nausea, Motion Sickness and Morning Sickness Relief Bands work by exerting constant pressure on the P6 (or Nei-Kuan) acupressure point on the inner wrist. The stimulation causes the nervous system to release chemicals that help trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Because Sea-Band is drug free, it means that there are none of the side effects associated with anti-nausea products, such as drowsiness or dry mouth, it is safe to use during pregnancy and after surgery, and in conjunction with migraine medications. Clinically tested, the brand works within five minutes after being applied and can be worn at the onset of nausea and for as long as needed or reused if nausea returns.

How to use Sea-Bands?
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.
My Overall Impression: I've tried these now for about two weeks. I am on Anti-Motion sickness medication because I get Vertigo easily and Motion Sickness. It's a constant pain to travel anywhere because of the dizziness and sickness that follows. I got the chance to try these out and they are 'drug-free' which sparked my interest because who wants to take a bunch of medication when traveling and then end up drowsy or just worn down and tired. I know I don't. So, I decided to give these a try even though I was skeptical because how can a band with a little pumped up bead sewn into a band help me to not get sick? Amazingly enough it actually helped a lot when I'm driving. I don't feel as sick and who would of thought that this little band adding pressure to a point near your wrist would help with nausea? I did find myself still getting dizzy at times, but I was waiting to long to put these on. It's best to put the bands on before traveling and not wait til you are in a vehicle or what have you to put these on for relief.
