An Acupressure Point For Naturally Treating Nausea, Vertigo, Motion Sickness Or Morning Sickness

You may have seen “anti air sickness” acupoint wristbands on sale in catalogs or on the internet. The manufacturers state that you can slip them over your wrist and a plastic nub inside the band will stimulate a special acupuncture point to help you quell the feeling of nausea. The problem is, most of these bands never tell you how to properly locate that acupoint! If you don’t place the nub precisely over the correct location, you will not get the beneficial effect. Read on to learn how you can find that point and stimulate it properly.

What Evidence Is There That Acupuncture Works Better Than Western Medicine?

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment that’s been around for years and has helped many individuals overcome a variety of ailments and illnesses. It involves the use of thin, sterile needles, which are placed into certain areas of the body for manual stimulation. Specific acupuncture points are targeted depending on the ailment or condition from which patients seek relief.

Basics of the Electro Stimulation Device

The concept of using the electro simulation device is quite simple. It uses an electrical current to facilitate transfer of energy in the form of electricity to heal an injury or wound. An electrical source in the device regulates and controls the transfer of electric current through an electrode pad. Two electrode pads are needed to complete the electrical circuit in the device. An electrolyte is used to moisten the surface of the wound or skin to insulate the contact with the electrical energy.

Last weeks highlight…

A lovely lady and friend came to me just after I qualified as an Acupuncturist with a frozen shoulder. She was unable to lift her arm higher than her head and to rotate it all the way around. She had seen a specialist and he had told her after a scan she may need an operation her scapula joint area. After five acupuncture treatments she was able to move her arm and shoulder clockwise and anti clockwise and was able (although a little painful) to reach up totally into the sky.  She went back to her specialist three months later who scanned her shoulder again and to her amazement he told her that she no longer needed an operation on the joint.
