Hot flashes are episodes of intense feelings of warmth on the skin, usually in the face, neck, and chest. These may be accompanied by a racing heart rate and heavy sweating. When hot flashes happen overnight, these night sweats can leave your bedclothes drenched and make it hard to return to sleep. In professional settings, hot flashes are doubly stressful, as symptoms make it hard to focus on routine tasks, let alone chair a board meeting or finish a presentation.
The Embr Wave® from Embr Labs can help. This lightweight wearable device uses temperature to provide immediate, safe, and noninvasive help for menopause symptoms. And unlike other menopause cooling devices, Embr Wave offers comfort that is convenient and discreet, so hot flashes won't get in your way and no one even needs to know you're having them.
Embr Wave: instant temperature relief on your wrist
Embr Wave is a sleek and stylish wristband that's about the size of a smartwatch. Using a compact thermoelectric heat pump and activated at the press of a button, the Wave generates pleasing warm or cool sensations that you feel on your inner wrist, where the skin is highly sensitive to temperature. These sensations trigger a natural physiological response that prompts your body recalibrate its perception of temperature, helping you feel better quickly and providing instant help for menopause symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, and nausea.
Why does menopause cause hot flashes and insomnia?
Hot flashes are thought to be caused by decreased hormone levels in the years around menopause, which cause your brain's thermoregulation center to wrongly believe your body is overheated. As a result, your brain initiates a series of actions in an attempt to cool it down rapidly. Blood vessels below the skin dilate to expel heat, causing the intense warmth you feel on your skin. Your heart races to pump blood faster through the body, and your sweat glands are activated to release perspiration. You may even experience menopause chills as the hot flash subsides and your brain tries to rebalance temperature. When these episodes happen at night, these symptoms and the fluctuating hormones that cause them can wake you up and prevent you from returning to sleep.
How to use Embr Wave
When you need help for menopause hot flashes, all you need to do is press a button on the Wave to begin a series of cooling sensations precisely engineered to deliver instant relief. Embr Wave also brings menopause night sweat relief, with thermal sessions designed to help you fall asleep quickly if you wake up and then keep you resting comfortably through the night.
How the Wave delivers help for menopause symptoms
Embr Wave is able to provide immediate help for menopause symptoms by taking advantage of a physical phenomenon you already understand. Think of how, on a hot day, a cold towel pressed to your forehead can help you feel cooler all over. Or how wrapping your hands around a mug of hot cocoa can make you feel warm, cozy, and relaxed from head to toe.
Studies show that even a small but concentrated thermal sensation on one part of your body—like your inner wrist—can change the way you perceive temperature throughout your entire body. When the right kind of temperature sensation is felt on the skin of your wrist, thermoreceptors send a signal to the part of your brain that regulates emotion, stress, pleasure, and temperature, sending a message that you should recalibrate your perception of how hot or cold you feel. Embr Wave harnesses this instinctual ability of your body to use localized temperature sensations to feel better and puts that power at your fingertips so you can get relief right when you need it.
Unlike other menopause cooling products like ice packs, cooling gels, spray mists, or cooling cloths, the Wave is easy to use and completely discreet—no one will even know you're using it. And in contrast to menopause insomnia remedies like meditation, yoga, acupuncture, and lifestyle changes, Embr Wave offers immediate relief and instant help for menopause sleeplessness that you can access without getting out of bed.
Take control with the Embr Wave 2 app
When you connect your wristband to the Embr Wave 2 app, you can unlock additional features and settings that let you use the device to its full potential. With the app, you can: explore special cooling and warming sessions designed to reduce stress, enhance sleep, improve comfort, and manage hot flashes; set the intensity and duration of each session, with options that range from 5 minutes to 9 hours; edit, save, and rename sessions; and reprogram the buttons on the Wave to personalize your experience. And by tracking the way you use your Wave, the app helps you learn from your patterns so you can get even more effective relief over time.
Temperature relief all day and night
Embr Wave goes well beyond just delivering help for menopause symptoms.
Comfort on demand
Whether you are someone who is always too warm or too cold, Embr Wave offers a simple way to stay in control of your comfort level, no matter who's in charge of the thermostat. Studies have found that using the Wave for just three minutes helped people who were uncomfortable with temperature in a room to feel 5°F warmer or cooler on average, and women in particular were able to feel up to 9°F cooler or 6°F warmer.
Studies have shown that localized warming or cooling is an effective, non-pharmacological way to promote sleep. Based on this research, Embr Wave features Fall Asleep sessions that are designed to help lull you to sleep faster and All Night sessions that provide steady waves for up to 9 hours, helping you rest easily through the night.
If you've ever noticed yourself turning cold when you're panicked or anxious, or getting hot when you're overwhelmed, you know that temperature and stress are closely related. And if you've ever grabbed a cold drink to calm down or taken a hot bath to relax, you also know that the right types of thermal sensations can offer powerful stress relief. The Wave lets you use soothing cooling or warming sensations to relieve tension and reduce stress anytime and anywhere.

What are the symptoms of menopause?
The hormonal changes that bring on menopause—the end of a woman's menstrual cycles and reproductive years—are also the cause of a variety of unpleasant symptoms. These may include headaches, weight gain, mood swings, fatigue, and uneven periods. However, the symptoms that tend to create the most difficulty for women are hot flashes and insomnia. Hot flashes are the body's reaction to a false signal sent to the brain suggesting the body is overheated and needs to cool down fast. In response, the brain tells blood vessels beneath the skin to widen and release heat. The sweat glands are activated, causing heavy perspiration. As a result of these effects and the hormonal changes that cause them, many women experience bouts of insomnia and have a hard time getting a good night's sleep.
