Acupressure applied to Neiguan P-6 via a wristband is effective at preventing nausea and vomiting, and provides a viable alternative to drugs after gynaecological surgery. A study conducted by Turkish researchers randomised 97 women to either wristband acupressure applied during the first 12 hours after gynecological surgery, or a control group who received antiemetics during and after their operation. Acupressure was effective at preventing vomiting and led to a significant reduction in nausea intensity. Patients’ general comfort level was also improved by acupressure.
