Acupuncture Points to Combat Nausea

Happy Monday Dreamers! As you know we have focused multiple blog posts on combatting nausea. Well, we would like to connect you with a natural resource to help ease a child’s upset stomach. Acupuncture is a wonderful and easy technique that does not require another medication.

Follow these steps as provided by the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center:
1. Position your hand so that your fingers are pointing up and your palm is facing you.
3. To find pressure point P-6, place the first 3 fingers of your opposite hand across your wrist (see Figure 1). Then, place your thumb on the point just below your index finger (see Figure 2). You should be able to feel two large tendons under your thumb.
4. Use your thumb or forefinger to press on this point in a circular motion for 2 to 3 minutes. The pressure should be firm but not cause discomfort.
5. Repeat the process on your other wrist.
