Hi, I'm Hilary Talbott, Acupuncture Physician and Clinical Herbalist. Today, we will be discussing acupressure for nausea. Now, nausea can happen as a result of many different things; everything from a hangover to morning sickness to motion sickness. Pericardium 6 is one of the cardinal points that we use for nausea. It's located between the two tendons on the inside of the wrist, right after the vein crosses which is usually about two finger breaths down. So, on our model today, it's right here. And this is kind of a sensitive area, so you want to use soft to moderate pressure and take deep breaths while you're experiencing nausea and stimulating this pink, this point. Taking deep breaths and visualizing everything going down instead of up while you stimulate this is often helpful increasing its effectiveness. Depending on what's causing your nausea, there maybe other points that are specific to you in your condition. So, I encourage you to seek out your local acupuncturist and find points that are right for you. In the meantime, P6 is great. I'm Hilary Talbott, and that was acupressure for nausea.
