    I have TERRIBLE motion sickness and have spent a good amount of time lying down on the boat deck or in the back seat rather thatn enjoying the beautiful scenery because of it. That is, until I discovered Psi Bands. They work by accupressure and are highly effective. I usually put them on in advance if I know a particularly windy road is coming up, and they prevent the nausea effectively. They can also reduce the nausea if placed after it starts, but it's better to apply them before hand. I've even shared my psi bands with someone else who was seasick once (we each used one) and it helped us both. The bands are adjustable. Just twist the dial after it's in place to put more or less pressure to fine tune the adjustment. I tend to use a good amount of pressure, so when the band comes off you see little circular imprints where the pressure was applied.

    This is one of my ESSENTIAL travel items. No trips to the mountains or boat rides without it now! And, they just look like cute little bracelets.

    Chose Psi Bands instead of Explorer Band because all of the reviews were about the same - no point in spending $140 over [$] for the same result. Used a bracelet on a boat ride and for back seat travel and never felt a thing. After the initial use, the band seemed to have "stretched" a little so I can't get the most effective pressure (I suppose). I tried to use it again on a short bus ride and ambitiously tried to read - got nauseaus immediately with no relief. Bought 4 so I'll see if a new one does me better.

            • Pregnancy Nausea

            Comments about Psi Bands Drug-Free Wrist Bands for the Relief of Nausea, Racer Black, 1 pr:

            Seven weeks into my pregnancy and my nausea was terrible. I spent most of my time in the bathroom and could barely eat. The very thought of food made me nauseous, much less the sight or smell. If my nausea wasn't so bad, I never would have bought Psi Bands because a wrist band to stop nausea seems like a rip off to me. However, I was desperate and willing to give them a try. Although the product information says it can take anywhere from 10 seconds to a few days to work depending on the individual, the results were immediate for me. I now have no nausea whatsoever.

            The bands are pretty stylish, although I ordered the racer black ones to be discreet.They can be uncomfortable for the first few minutes of putting them on before your body acclimates. I was worried they'd be too small because of a review I read, but they should fit just about anyone. Psi Bands webpage states they fit a wrist circumference of 5 1/4-8 1/4 inches. I have no complaints.

            My 16 year old is learning to fly through Civil Air Patrol. During the hot summers in Georgia and flying in a small Cessna, he would feel a bit ill after a few hours of airtime. The bands are perfect! No drugs, no drowsy side effects and they look like a watch band.

                I thought these would help, based on other reviews. They didn't seem to help that much for me, yet either does the fancy [$]. watch impulse item my husband bought for me to replace these. I still get that yucky feeling in my stomach when I fly in his small plane. I think the motion sickness tablets actually work better for me.

                    I wore the psi bands continuously while at sea and I never felt nauseous or seasick. Getting them wet was not a problem since they are plastic, not fabric. After several hours of wear however the button over the pressure point felt tight and left quite a mark on my wrist.

                      Didn't think it would work. Always relied on drugs or medicine. This is great! You just have to remember to put them on BEFORE you start to travel and/or have symptoms.
