NoMo Bands are the first and only essential oil infused acupressure wristbands that instantly relieve nausea and vomiting, as well as headaches and migraines. Soothing essential oil aromatherapy combines with gentle acupressure in a comfortable, stylish, and waterproof wristband for safe, effective, fast-acting, long-lasting, natural relief that works for your whole family
Our story began almost four years ago when I became the patient instead of the medical provider. The anesthesia from my emergency C-section left me sick and vomiting for days. Surprisingly, none of the traditional medications worked for me. Luckily, I tried Eastern medicine practices of acupressure and aromatherapy and I rejoiced in finding the perfect remedy. But, my search for a similar product in stores turned up empty. So, my first product, NoMo Nausea, was born. Then I thought, if it helped me, how many others can it help? Now I have five product lines both internationally and domestically, and we want to keep growing. The more we grow, the more people we can help. We are changing people’s lives for the better, one band at a time.
MEET THE TEAM
At NoMo Nausea, we pride ourselves on being a truly small, bootstrapping business that has become a family. Our core management team is only four people. I oversee the business and find new ways to continue our progress. Sara, my VP, is my righthand woman. She effectively actualizes my ideas and oversees our sales team. Stan, my husband, and COO, manages everyday operations and supervises our fulfillment center. Pam, my office manager, and her wealth of knowledge about retail sales keeps us all organized. Dr. Orbegoso, my Chief Medical Officer, is an anesthesiologist with 26 years of experience and conducts our clinical research. Our family wouldn’t be complete without our team of student interns. We embrace our partnerships with Tampa universities so students can use their skills in “the real world.” For three years, our interns have supplied innovative and contemporary ideas, amplifying the success of the company.
NoMo Bands’ uniqueness has garnered significant attention. In 2015, Kiwi Magazine, Surgical Products, and even national sports teams recognized us. I also began my annual campaign, “Buy a Band, Give a Band”, where for every band purchased during October, we donate a band to a patient undergoing chemotherapy.
n 2016, I was given the PharmaHero award and nominated as Business Woman of the Year by the Tampa Chamber of Commerce. I also won Shark Tank’s The Big Pitch when my NoMo Migraine band stopped the judge’s migraine in two minutes.
Our products hit the shelves of nationwide retailers like Bed Bath and Beyond, BuyBuy Baby, and CVS in 2017. I also introduced my hilarious and informative Pregnancy Pukeology podcast and was featured in Forbes magazine. Finally, last month, I won the inaugural 2018 PepsiCo Choice competition at the WBENC National Conference and Business Fair. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2019!
