Hi, I'm Hilary Talbott, Acupuncture Physician and Clinical Herbalist. Today, I will be showing you an acupressure point to alleviate symptoms of motion sickness. Pericardium 6 is a point that I often talk about, located on the inside of the forearm between the two tendons of the wrist, right after the vein crosses. So, on our model today it's located right here. Simple stimulation of this point can help to prevent motion sickness before it sets in. So, if you know that you're someone that's prone, and you know you're going on a long car ride or on a bot, I encourage you to use this point freely before you go and while you're on your trip. There are actually bands that are now available that press on this spot continuously so you don't have to keep stimulating the point yourself and they're available relatively inexpensive fee at your local drugstores as well as online. Other tips to avoid motion sickness are to avoid looking out the window and look down or look down at the floor of the boat as well as alleviating or as not having any dairy before you go. A lot of times, people who get motion sickness will drink milk before they get on a long car ride, and it comes right back up. So, those are two simple things you can do to help stop the motion sickness before it starts. I'm Hilary Talbott, and that was acupressure for motion sickness.
