The Hay Band is a natural, drug free alternative for hayfever prevention which can be used by anyone, even children, and has been developed by leading acupuncturists. The Hay-Band applies pressure to the LI-11 acupressure point, a recognised point on the LI meridian used for many years for its therapeutic effects. It is understood that applying pressure on different body points can clear blockages in these meridians, promoting physical and emotional well-being.
The Hay-Band may be worn as a precautionary measure by adults and children over 3 years to help prevent the onset of, or give relief from, symptoms of hayfever. It can be used in conjunction with small doses of antihistamines if necessary. It is important to note that the LI-11 pressure point has been used to aid the onset of labour so the Hay-Band should NOT be worn during pregnancy. By using acupressure, the Hay-Band aims to embrace over four thousand years of traditional Chinese healing methods to provide completely natural relief whilst avoiding causing drowsiness.
