PsiBands–Perfect for Holiday Travel

Gift Guide Pick

We travel quite a bit, and most trips we go on we take several modes of travel, planes, ships and automobiles are the norm every year.  I don’t always suffer from motion sickness, but I can’t read in a moving vehicle, and when there are high waves on the sea I do tend to feel a bit light headed and queasy.  I fortunately have never been violently ill from motion sickness, but in the past have always taken medication to negate the effects of it.

Motion Sickness isn’t confined to travel either, I’m the type of person who tends to feel nauseous on amusement park rides, in Imax Movies and while playing certain video games.  When I received an e-mail from PsiBands letting me know about their ability to treat motion sickness, I was intrigued so requested a sample.

PsiBands (pronounced “sigh bands” as in breathe a sigh of relief) are wrist bands that you can wear to eliminate the motion sickness from the beginning.  Similar to a sports watch band in design, you place the disc on your arms about 2 1/2 finger widths from your where your wrist bends.

After having used them for a 3 1/2 hour bus trip that I took on the weekend, I find that they work well.  My daughter also used them today while playing a video game that usually she can’t play much more than 15 minutes, as it tends to make her nauseous.  She was able to play for a whole hour, and said she didn’t feel sick to her stomach during that time.

I will continue to pack my PsiBands with me on any trip I go on, and will get additional sets for the rest of my family.

PsiBands are a great stocking stuffer for family members who travel, or experience motion sickness with other activities.  PsiBands come two to a set (one is worn on each wrist) and sell for $14.99-$19.99 per set depending on retailer and location. PsiBands are available nationwide at Rite Aid and REI, regionally at Whole Foods, and online. For a complete list of retailers and/or to learn more about PsiBands, visit
