Acupressure Points for Motion Sickness and Nausea

acupressure-for-nausea-1

Acupressure is the practice of pressing or massaging certain points on the body said to stimulate self-curative abilities. Putting pressure on acupoints, known as acupressure, encourages “qi” or energy flow, straightens out imbalances in the body, activates the immune system and aids proper circulation.

One of the most common uses for P6, however, is for nausea. That’s because the Pericardium pathway passes through your chest, down through your diaphragm and into your mid and lower abdomen. On it’s way, the pathway passes through your stomach, and when P6 on your wrist is stimulated, it can calm a funky stomach.

If you’re prone to motion sickness, need some morning sickness relief, or are dealing with nausea for another reason, try this quick acupressure technique.
