Last year I traveled to the Galapagos Islands for a 9 day cruise around the islands. I have never really been on a boat before for more than a few hours at a time and so I was a bit unsure as to whether I got seasick or not. However, I didn't want to be stuck in the middle of the Galapagos without any means of getting something that would make me feel better should I suffer from sea sickness and so I took a couple of things with me "just in case". One of these things was the Acustrap Motion Sickness Band which cost me £2.49 from Amazon. It was recommended to me by a friend who said it had helped her on long car journeys - but I have to admit that I didn't fully Read the complete review

I have always suffered from severe travel sickness for as long as I can remember and travel sickness pills offer me some relief but not enough to make the journey an enjoyable experience. Strangely I only really suffer from it on buses and the backs of cars and I am fine on boats, trains and planes. It can make things really awkward and forward planning is always needed when it comes to planning a journey anywhere. I am always on the lookout for anything that I think might help and that is how I came across the Acustrap which promises to help with motion sickness by using acupressure points to control the nausea. The band itself is a nylon strap ... Read the complete review

I am one of those people who suffer badly from travel sickness. However, since discovering Acustrap motion sickness bands this has become a thing of the past and a whole new world, literally, has opened up to me. Car, boats and planes all made me feel sick with boats and planes being the worst offenders. To go anywhere by plane I usually took lots of travel pills but these always knocked me out, not only for the whole journey but most of the next day as well. My other half was getting fed up having no-one to talk to throughout the journey and he decided to look around for an alternative. Firstly he bought me a pair of travel wrist bands. They were made ... Read the complete review

I have had problems with sea sickness on and off and when I was going on a boat trip I needed to be sure I could handle it ok. I got a motion sickness band because I had read that they can help a lot with this kind of thing. The one I had was an acustrap it was made from plastic polyresin and nylon with velcro. I had to try to get it fitted to put the right bit on my pressure point to make me feel less sick when I wore it and I think that was difficult. It was a bit of a struggle to get it in the right place and it slipped about if I left it with a bit of play. It had to go on firm and fit tight to my skin. It rubbed me when it was on tighter and ... Read the complete review

I bought these Acustrap bands because I was recommended them by the pharmacist to help combat morning sickness! Out of all of the ones they had on the Go Travel section, these were the cheapest and looked the same as the rest of them - maybe I shouldn't have skimped on price, I guess I'll never know! I found that the straps didn't work for me at all, and couldn't see how they would work for travel sickness either. I found that they were really just two straps with Velcro on with two bubbles on the inside. The packaging claims that to combat sickness, be it travel or morning, the bubbles press on your pressure points to alleviate the feeling of sickness. ... Read the complete review
