HOW IT STARTED...
On the 20th February 2021 I was 4 days overdue with my 2nd child. I had just filmed my ‘ If you a baby mama’ tik tok video when I received a message from a friend sharing a post from Thepositivebirthmovement. It stated that holding a comb can help with contractions during labour using the gate control theory.
HOW IT WORKS...
The gate control theory states that your brain can only focus on a few sensations at the same time. By squeezing the comb into your palm it acts as a distraction, diverting your brain so your body can adjust to the pain.
When gripped in your hands a comb can help hit acupressure points such as the Lao Gong. Acupressure applies the same principal as acupuncture but does not penetrate your skin
The Wave Comb is made from sustainable, waterproof, splinter free peach wood and can be used during childbirth, an operation, at the dentist, whilst getting a tattoo or even a cosmetic treatment and many more occasions that you would need a distraction.
This is your non-negotiable tool to help you cope with pain. Find your inner power and be in control, remove the fear of pain with The Wave Comb.
