The lovely people at Sea-Band have very kindly given me some samples of their products in both adult and children sizes to give away - yes that's right GIVE AWAY - on my blog. Yay! So before I get to the give away part let me tell you about what Sea-Bands are and how they work.
WHAT ARE SEA-BANDS?
Sea-Band acupressure wristbands have been providing nausea relief to millions of people for more than 20 years. They are sold nationwide and help relieve all forms of nausea including morning sickness and travel sickness. The wristbands are very comfortable to wear and are made from an acrylic, nylon and elastane mix and are machine washable.
HOW DO SEA-BANDS WORK?
Using the ancient chinese principles of Acupressure each Sea-Band wristband contains a plastic stud which exert a small continuous pressure on the P6 acupressure point on your wrist. They are clinically proven to be effective and can be worn many times.
WHAT SYMPTOMS DO SEA-BANDS RELIEVE?
Sea-Bands are a drug free way for you to relieve your nausea, whether it be morning sickness/pregnancy nausea and vomiting, or motion sickness. They are safe for you and your children to wear - great if your child suffers with travel sickness as instead of having to take a tablet they just have to wear a wristband!
HOW SEA-BANDS ASSIST WITH MOTION SICKNESS
Don't let motion sickness ruin your journeys, whether they are by land, sea or air! If you or your children experience motion sickness while travelling Sea-Bands may help to reduce your nausea letting you enjoy your journey again. Sea-Bands can be worn prior to travel, or at the onset of nausea, and unlike most drugs or tablets, Sea-Bands can start working very quickly and have no side effects. There is no limit to the length or number of times Sea-Bands can be used
Ray Quinn used Sea-Bands when he was competing on ITV's Dancing on Ice to combat the extreme motion sickness he experienced whilst performing!
HOW SEA-BANDS CAN ASSIST WITH MORNING SICKNESS SYMPTOMS
Clinical trials have also proven that Sea-Band provides natural relief for the symptoms of morning sickness and because it is drug free there are no side effects or harm caused to you or your unborn baby. For many pregnant women, morning sickness is not just a problem in the morning. In some cases ‘morning sickness’ can last all day, and can range from feeling nauseaous to actually vomiting many times a day. In many countries, up to 80% of women will suffer from ‘morning sickness’ or pregnancy sickness and Sea-Bands may help to reduce both feelings of nausea, and may reduce vomiting as well. Some women wear their Sea-Bands only when they feel nauseous during their pregnancy, whilst others are known to start wearing them as soon as they know they are pregnant.
I trialled these myself for my morning sickness and I do believe they relieved my feelings of nausea, which I suffer with badly some days! They were very comfortable to wear and I would use them again.
Many celebrities have been spotted wearing Sea-Bands for their morning sickness: Gail Porter, Ulrika Johnson, Fiona Phillips, Kirsty Gallacher and most recently Gwen Stefani have all been seen wearing Sea-Bands whilst pregnant!
