Reliefband Sport Review

We live in an exciting time, with a lot of technology to help us with our lives. Some of it is even medical based. Migraines and anxiety can be a real problem for some, to a point where they can become nauseous. Thankfully now there are products that can help with that. Up for review today is the Reliefband Sport.


Features and specs:

Fast Acting Relief

100% Drug-Free

 Clinically Proven

Works Within Minutes


Zero Side Effects

The Reliefband Sport came in a nice-looking color printed box, with photos and specs of the product. Opening the box revealed a well-protected product, held in place by custom molded foam. Materials used in the construction was mostly plastic, with some cloth and metal. Quality of materials used, as well as the fit and finish, was very good. Also included was the charging cable, owner’s manual, and tube of jell.


I liked the simple design of the Reliefband Sport. It looks like a watch, but it is just a band that you wear on your wrist. It is designed to treat nausea and vomiting that is caused by migraines, anxiety, hangovers, car, sea, or air sickness, even pregnancy and chemotherapy. The design is simple in that it just has a couple electrodes on the back of the band. These electrodes provide stimulation to the nerve, and you adjust the level of stimulation as needed. It’s the stimulation that treats the nausea and vomiting. And even if the effect is not severe enough to trigger vomiting or nausea, it is supposed to help. My daughter suffers from anxiety really bad, so I’m excited to see how it will help her.  Here is what she had to say about it:


“I didn’t get the relief band working the first time. I did feel a weird sensation but I only ended up getting a headache and it wouldn’t stay on. Once I got it done right was when I really felt it. It was a good thing, since I’m pretty sure I forgot to take my anxiety pill this morning. My reaction to the wrong way was it would actually be giving me headaches. They would slowly go away after taking the band off, though. Yet even wearing it the wrong way actually still helped with the anxiety. Now, what I did wrong was that I missed a step and messed up on the other. Once I did it correctly, I could tell it was working. There was a tingling feeling from my palm and middle finger. It had distracted me while I was working. So I would recommend not wearing it on your dominant hand. It’s a little too early to tell if it really does help with migraines. However, I did have some pressure around my head. My brain knew it was being rewritten. I did wear it while I was shopping because I tend to be a bit edgy if I’m not home before dark. Wearing this, I felt I could easily rationalize my thoughts and have them just fade away. So far, I'm liking this.

               I’ve learned two things with this stomach bug. One, that nausea isn’t my body tricking my brain into thinking I might vomit. It can be a sudden warning that it is gonna happen. Two, that the relief band won’t stop the nausea if it’s because you’re sick.

               It is the second day of my period and I think I’ve gotten all the information I need on the relief band. Now with the bad cramps I also get migraines and nausea. And with it saying that it helps that associated with pregnancy, one would think that it can help with these symptoms. Now it did turn my migraine into a slight headache. However, it did not prevent nausea. So here is what I have to say about it. First off, it’s only helpful for what is written on the box: Anxiety, physician-diagnosed migraines, hangovers, car sickness, sea sickness, air sickness, pregnancy, chemotherapy, and post-operative. 

Anxiety is different from person to person. In my case, there are moments where my mind tricks my body into thinking that I’m sick in order to get away from the troubling situation. The relief band stops this and keeps me calm. All the negative thoughts I have during an attack have now become silent. The applying gel can be itchy, so I have to take the band off after several hours of use. The settings on the intensity indicator is important. You only need to have it set to the level where you only feel slight tingling. Having it any higher doesn’t make the treatment any better. It will only make the sensations painful. Yes, this is very helpful in what it’s designed for and I highly recommended it. But at the same time, I think it shouldn’t be heavily relied on. If that seems to be the case, that’s when I say that you should go see a doctor on whatever is causing the anxiety or vomiting. In short, this is a bandage, not a cure.”


All-in-all, the Reliefband Sport proved to be an effective product that did help. It is also a simple and well-made product that should give years of use. Based on its design, features, quality and performance, it has earned our Highly Recommended award. For more info and complete specs, check out their website at
