How to wear NoMo bands
Place one NoMo band on a wrist of your choice at P6, see picture for details then simply smell during waves of nausea or when you have a headache. It's that easy!
The Chinese meridian point P6, named Nei-Guan point, is used for the treatment of headaches, nausea and vomiting. Instructions for use of the NoMo Nausea Band simplify this location as three fingers from the first wrist crease in between the pointer and middle finger tendons. Figure 1 details the location, which pronounces the tendons if the “okay sign” is made by connecting the first finger with the thumb.
The elastic acupressure band applying pressure is held into positioning approximately 0.5 cm deep to the skin at the P6 point. Correct pressure may correspond with a mild redness at the pressure point location. Application at any other location other than P6 will not decrease headache discomfort nausea or vomiting.
Nausea and vomiting can be associated with serious conditions. Anti-nausea wristbands are not for everyone, contact your physician if symptoms persist. Although acupressure may be effective on its own or when combined with other therapies. It should not be used as a replacement for doctor prescribed treatment. Stop wearing the band if skin irritation, pain, swelling, or numbness of the fingers occur. Your pulse should be palpable on the radial artery. If you have reduced circulation or neuropathy of the arms or hands please contact your physician before use. This is not a toy, or edible, and can be a choking hazard. Keep out of the reach of young children.
