Information


Question:
Can nausea be cured by pressing a spot on your arm?

Answer:
Sometimes mild nausea, even morning sickness, may improve by using your middle and index fingers to press firmly down on the groove between the two large tendons on the inside of your wrist that start at the base of your palm.

Also, acupuncture (using needles) is often used for nausea or vomiting related to chemotherapy for cancer.
