Psi Bands Partners with National Breast Cancer Foundation

09/11/2014

Pacific Grove, CA – When undergoing chemotherapy, even the smallest things – like wearing something both functional and fashionable – can make a large difference. That is why cancer patients and those who love them prefer Psi Bands (www.psibands.com), a product that provides relief to those undergoing chemotherapy. And now, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Psi Bands has formed a charitable partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® (NBCF). For every set of Psi Bands’ Color Play design (the pink striped band) purchased during the month of October, a donation will be made to NBCF.

Psi Bands (pronounced "sigh bands") are stylish acupressure wrist bands that are FDA-cleared for the relief of nausea due to chemotherapy, as well as anesthesia, morning sickness, motion sickness/travel. Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses pressure to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. Numerous double blind randomized studies support the use of wrist acupressure for the relief of nausea. Psi Bands exemplify the recent trends in healthcare for natural health remedies with a stylish flare.

Consider this recent testimonial: “As a pediatrician and nausea researcher, I know that acupressure points can relieve nausea for patients on chemotherapy. Before I knew about Psi Bands, the only option I knew was to have kids with nausea hold wrist pressure with a hair band and rolled up tissue which is, of course, inelegant and impractical. I recommend Psi Bands to my patients with nausea.” - Amy Baxter, M.D. and CEO Buzzy4Shots

Unlike similar products on the market, Psi Bands were designed to be both functional and fashionable for those who suffer from nausea. Psi Bands are uniquely adjustable at two areas, around the wrist like a watch to fit various wrist sizes and at the acupressure point for personalized comfort. Psi Bands are also waterproof (no more soggy wrist bands), reusable, and affordable.

Psi Bands co-founder and “Nausea Relief Chief” Romy Taormina stated, “My grandmother, mother-in-law and several dear friends are breast cancer survivors. We consider it an honor to join forces with NBCF and support its mission of help and hope for those with breast cancer.”

Psi Bands sell for approximately $15/set and are available nationwide at select Target stores, as well as CVS/Pharmacy, Babies “R” Us, REI, AAA Travel stores, and numerous hospital gift shops, as well as online.
