Acupressure Points for Motion Sickness and Nausea – Massage Monday #244

Articles Blog


Hi everyone. This is Yasuko and it’s time
for Massage Monday. It’s summer time and time for vacation for some people. Today I’m going
to show two acupressure points on your wrists and fingers that are effective for motion
sickness. These are also effective for morning sickness if you are pregnant. Even if you
are not prone to motion sickness, if you travel in a group there’s more chance of getting
someone sick from driving the windy road or boating or even flying. So know these points
for those people to make your life easier because I guarantee cleaning up their mess
is no fun. The first one is on the wrist. Three finger
widths from the wrist crease and between the two tendons. This point is called P6 or Pericardium
6. Press this with your thumb or hooked thumb while you wrap the wrist with the other fingers
for a support until the nausea goes away. If you want to keep your hands free, there
are many wrist band products available. I used to see only Sea Band but now I see more
colorful ones too. You can make your own with a tight wrist band or scarf and a small stone.
To enhance with the aroma effect drop peppermint essential oil to the wrist band. Do not put
it on the skin directly because you may get a skin irritation. If one is not helping do
on both wrists. The second one is on your ring finger. It’s
at the base of your ring finger nail on the pinky side. When you follow the outside edge
of your ring finger there is a depression. That’s the spot. This point is called Triple
Heater 1 or Triple Warmer 1. Try on both hands and press the one that you feel more. This
is an effective point for a sudden urge to vomit too. Press this until your nausea is
gone. Thanks for watching. I’ll see you back next
week. Make it a great week. Feel free to comment below and please don’t forget to subscribe.

  3. I'll give it a try next wknd at the lake. We just bought a boat. I wish so badly to get this under control. It's a miserable feeling, and it ruins everyone's day when we have to head home early because I'm ill. What's worse, it's summer in Vegas (over 110° F!), so if I am motion sick & can't drink much water, I get very dehydrated fast & it's a double whammy! Thank you for the acupressure tips, Yasuko-san! I hope this works for me.
