My entire life I have suffered from motion sickness and as I get older it is getting worse. As a child it was brutal to ride in the back of the car anywhere. And as an adult this is still the case. I am often on work trips having to share a van or an uber and I have to explain to everyone I am with that I need to sit up front. I often see people multi-tasking in cars, but if I look at my phone in a moving vehicle I will get sick.
Last summer I attended a conference that was being held on a boat in NYC. This to me sounded so cool, but when I got there I couldn’t take it. The Hudson river is choppy and the boat was swaying a lot. In between sessions I would get off the boat and sit down outside. The last day I completely gave up and left. I missed half a day’s worth of networking, learning sessions, and interviews. Plus, I missed the closing party where they went out around the Statue of Liberty. I was so bummed, but I just couldn’t take it.
In the last year it has gotten so bad that I feel awful on planes. Used to I could get work done when flying, but now I get motion sick looking at device during the flight. So needless to say when I was asked to review the Reliefband I jumped at the chance.
What is Reliefband?
Releifband is an FDA approved, clinically tested, doctor approved wearable technology, life changing device to help control nausea & motion sickness. It’s worn on the underside of your wrist, sending gentle pulses to rebalance the signals that cause nausea and vomiting so you’re back in control of your body in a few minutes. With 5 different settings, you can adjust the pulses to match your body’s needs.
How to use Reliefband
Reliefband is easy to use. Mine came with step by step instructions. I thought it would be more complicated because of the gel component, but it is not. I can put it on as soon as I start to feel bad and within minutes get relief. All you have to do is find the spot on the wrist in between 2 tendons, on the underside of the wrist. You clean the area and apply a small drop of gel and spread in a circle about the size of a coin. The gel comes with the Reliefband. Then you place the device over that area and the fastening device. Once the Reliefband is on, press the power button to turn it on. You want to start at power level 1 and then increase stimulation until tingling is felt in the palm and middle finger. Make sure you are at a comfortable level. If you feel uncomfortable lower the number.
