Does those Motion Sickness Bracelets everyone talks about really work? ❓

Well, it appears so!

I discovered a wrist band that is actually supposed to relieve the symptoms of motion sickness. Many people swear by them and say that they do in fact, work.  

Actually one of my relatives took a 🛳 cruise holiday and told me she was in fact, wearing one of these wrist bands. She said it did seem to help her when the ship was; rolling slightly.

So, being the curious sort, I decided to look into this product further.

Are you are one of the fortunate few who do not suffer from any form of motion sickness? ❓ If not, then I’m sure if you’re like me, you’re always in search of that perfect cure for this most uncomfortable ailment.

First, check out this short 📹 video describing motion sickness in general and also offers a few recommendations to assist in overcoming, this very annoying illness.

A Seasick Bracelet

It seems there really are legitimate products in the marketplace, that do help many people in easing the symptoms of motion sickness.

Such products are in fact these wristbands and as I’ve discovered, many people do swear by them!

My father was a WWII Navy Veteran, and was one of the lucky few who never suffered from motion sickness.

In fact, he said that only a handful of crew members on board ship, were not affected by seasickness in one way or another.


He has often said that if there were only a motion sickness bracelet available back then, many sailors could have possibly stayed on board ship.

For me, I can get seasick, airsick and carsick given the right circumstances. I am always searching for that perfect cure, because I –  love to travel.”

Do You Suffer From Motion Sickness?

Motion Sickness Remedies

Motion sickness can at times spoil a big part of that dream vacation, or those 🛳 cruise holidays you have waited so long to go on. For this reason, I think any product with a credible backing that can help prevent motion sickness, is definitely worth a try.

Travel products as this may not work for everyone, but bracelets like these have continued to show significant positive feedback and results for many people wearing them.

Briefly, motion sickness is;

“A disagreement between what your 👀 eyes see and what your inner ear feels.”

“Motion sickness is 🤢 nausea, disorientation and fatigue that can be induced by head motion.”

You can also get a more detailed explanation about this ailment at Wikipedia on 📰 Motion Sickness.  Just about every product on the market you see today, suggests the solution to motion sickness.

If so, then why are so many of us still getting sick? ❓ I know I still get motion sickness. 🙁

Motion Sickness Wrist Bands

Typical Types of Motion Sickness Remedies are …

Chewable tablets;

Liquid remedies;

Ginger root;

Travel shots;

and many more.  They are all readily available and they all seem to have the perfect remedy and cure for this illness.

Do Motion Sickness Remedies Really Work?

Certainly for some people, but not for most of us.  

Believe me, I have tried them all and I still suffer occasionally from motion sickness. The tablet formulas are effective, but most times are a relaxant and just make you feel 😴 drowsy.

I don’t like taking medication of any kind, so I am always looking for more natural solutions.

A Motion Sickness Bracelet That Works

I discovered this unassuming motion sickness bracelet and I am definitely going to give it a try on my next flight, or while taking another cruise vacation. 

I have always seen patches and wrist bands for motion sickness treatment that have been available on the market, but all have come with mixed reviews.

I have also had family members try these different products in the past, with inconclusive results.

Bracelets That Provide Relief Of Nausea


Motion sickness bracelets apply continuous {acupressure} to the vital acupressure point in the body, which ultimately relieves nausea, caused by a number of ailments.

Such ailments include; motion sickness, morning sickness, cancer treatments to surgery anesthesia and so on. Now there are motion sickness bracelets that only require you to wear one, not two!

This immediately caught my 🤔 attention, as I had no intentions of wearing two wrist bands looking like a geek while traveling!

Acupressure Wristband

These wrist bands apply the principle of Acupressure, which works much the same as acupuncture.

Definition of Acupressure:

The application of pressure on specific points on the body to control symptoms such as pain or nausea. Similar in concept to acupuncture but without needles.

shiatsu treatment

Further reading, I soon discovered this is also referred to as – “shiatsu”. This is the Japanese name for {pressure point application}, originating thousands of years ago in China.

Basically it involves acupressure applied to certain points on the body to relieve a specific symptom or condition.

This bracelet works by triggering light pressure to one of these points, specifically the one located on the wrist. 

The end result is relief from motion sickness. This lightly applied pressure assists in relieving the “sensory conflict” symptoms created from the brain.

It creates a balance, thus relieving motion sickness symptoms.

On our recent trip to Ecuador and while on our amazing Galapagos Islands Expedition Cruise, I decided to give these types of wrist bands a try. Check out my post here on my review of …

In my research on this subject, I also read that motion sickness is very common and quite normal.  What??  

In my experience, this is not normal and in fact I find it extremely abnormal and irritating!

I cannot think of a worse feeling than that of; motion sickness! 🙁

Final Thoughts Banner

So, if you or a member of your family occasionally suffer from this condition, this travel product may be worth a try. Someone out there must know of some miracle treatment for us poor sufferers, who dread the thought of being ill when traveling.

In the meantime, why not have a closer look at this natural product and others that apply Acupressure and that seem to be doing quite well among us sufferers.
