An acupressure device applies pressure to the pericardium acupressure point on a wrist of a user for the relief of nausea. The device has a frame element including two opposing end portions with adhesive thereon for adhering to skin of the user. A protruding element is supported on the frame element to protrude from an inner surface of the frame element at a location which is between the two end portions of the frame element in a lateral direction of the frame element. The frame element is formed of a resilient material which is arranged to undergo bending stresses when flexed about a bending axis oriented transversely to the lateral direction whereby the protruding element is arranged to apply pressure to the pericardium acupressure point when the adhesive material at the two end portions is adhered to skin of the user at laterally opposing sides of the pericardium acupressure point.
