Motion sickness, be it on the water or in the air, just isn't pretty. From the slight green tint of the skin to the intense nausea, there is nothing to love about the condition commonly called "sea sickness." Instead of taking the popular non-prescription motion sickness medication Dramamine, which can cause unwanted drowsiness, try this acupressure point.
The point, known in Chinese Medicine as Inner Gate is located on the inside of your wrist. Measure three finger widths up the inside of your arm, from the wrist line. Use your thumb to locate the point in the hollow between the two bones and in the middle of the tendons. A slight soreness will let you know you have found the right location. Press the point firmly while you breathe out, and release pressure as you breathe in, repeating eight times on each wrist. Of course, try to relax while you do this. Focused breathing will definitely help.
Fit's Tip: Pregnant women suffering from "morning sickness" often find some relief from this pressure point as well.
