How to get rid of hot flashes

When you're approaching menopause, there's likely one burning question on your mind: how to get rid of hot flashes fast. Hot flashes can strike at any time during menopause or in the years leading up to it. These incidents can cause your skin to heat, your face and neck to turn red, and your body to perspire heavily.

It's one thing to suffer these episodes in the privacy of your home, but quite another when they happen at work, in meetings, or in conversations with colleagues. It's no wonder that hot flashes—or even just the fear of them—can be a major source of stress.

When looking into how to get rid of hot flashes, you're likely to hear about hormone replacement therapy and prescription meds, but these therapies often have pretty serious side effects. Lifestyle changes, herbal supplements, yoga, and meditation are touted as natural relief for hot flashes. However, none of these options can deliver the instant relief you crave when you're in the middle of a hot flash or you feel one coming on (especially if you're in the workplace or out in public).

Fortunately, there's an easy answer to the question of how to get rid of hot flashes immediately. It's the Embr Wave® from Embr Labs, a thermal wristband that delivers fast and discreet relief—anytime, anywhere.

Embr Wave: wearable relief for hot flashes

The Embr Wave is a smart (and stylish) device that's worn on the inside of your wrist. It houses a compact thermoelectric heat pump that can generate precise pulses of cool or warm sensations known as Waveforms. Lasting anywhere from 5 minutes to 9 hours, these thermal sensations on the temperature-sensitive skin of your inner wrist send a signal to your brain that helps rebalance your sense of temperature, delivering instant relief from hot flashes.

The Wave taps into sensitive thermoreceptors on your wrist that are connected to the part of your brain associated with emotion, pleasure, stress, and thermoregulation. By applying pulses of warming or cooling to the skin on your wrist, you can activate a natural response mechanism that affects the way you experience temperature throughout your entire body. That means when you feel a hot flash coming on, a little cooling at the right time and in the right place can help you find relief and get rid of hot flashes quickly and easily.

Can a sensation on my wrist really help my entire body feel cooler?
Embr Wave brings the same kind of relief you feel when you wrap your hands around a warm cup of tea or press a cold compress to your forehead. Those temperature sensations applied to a small part of your body can immediately change the way you feel and how you perceive temperature. The Wave takes advantage of this phenomenon by giving you the ability to access precise temperature sensations anytime you need them—without anyone knowing you're experiencing a hot flash.

Get rid of hot flashes with the press of a button

Scientists aren't completely sure why hot flashes occur, but they're thought to be the result of errant signals sent to the brain that suggest the need to expel excessive body heat immediately. These are likely the result of wild fluctuations in hormone levels that women experience as they approach menopause. Responding to these signals, the body kicks into cool-down mode, widening the blood vessels near the skin to release heat and sending the sweat glands into overdrive.

Some women experience very few hot flashes, but others may have constant hot flashes for months, years, or decades. The most common medical treatments are hormone replacement therapy and prescription medicines, but these come with serious side effects that can include headaches, dizziness, breast pain, and nausea. Herbal supplements, yoga, meditation, and changes in diet and lifestyle may help to lessen the effects of hot flashes naturally. However, when you feel the sweating, burning feeling of a hot flash coming on, none of these solutions can deliver the immediate relief you crave.

That's where Embr Wave can save the day, delivering instant and powerful relief from hot flashes, drenching sweat, and even the nausea of menopause—with just the press of a button.

Take control with the Embr Wave app

To unlock even greater control and precision over your thermal experience, connect your wristband to the Embr Wave 2 app. You can always use the Wave by pressing buttons on the device, but the app allows you to customize your Waveform sessions and offers access to additional features and settings. With the app, you can:

  • Explore pre-programmed thermal sessions designed to increase comfort, relieve stress, improve sleep, and get rid of hot flashes.
  • Edit, save, and rename sessions to personalize your experiences for maximum effectiveness.
  • Choose the length of each session, with options that range from 5 minutes to 9 hours.
  • Track the way you use the Wave to gain insights into your thermal experiences.

FAQs

What are hot flashes?

A common symptom of menopause, hot flashes are sudden feelings of heat in the body that may be accompanied by heavy sweating and redness in the face, neck, and chest. Some people with hot flashes also experience anxiety and a faster or uneven heart rate. While it's not clear exactly why hot flashes occur, they are believed to be the result of hormonal changes that mistakenly cause the body to try to cool down by expelling heat quickly.

How can I get rid of hot flashes fast?

In addition to being quite uncomfortable, hot flashes are often embarrassing and unsettling—especially in professional situations. Many women turn to hormone replacement therapy, prescription medications, lifestyle changes, and herbal supplements, but none of these approaches provides immediate relief during a hot flash. Embr Wave offers a highly effective alternative — a smart wristband that generates cool sensations on the temperature-sensitive skin of the inner wrist. These localized thermal sensations have been shown to help the body rebalance its sense of temperature and bring immediate comfort and relief.

Does the Wave change my core body temperature?

No —and it doesn't need to in order to help you feel better. Even though hot flashes produce feelings of intense warmth, the core temperature of your body stays right around 98.6°F. The feeling of heat is produced by a signal from the brain that causes the body to sweat and blood vessels beneath the skin to widen and release heat. The cooling sensations generated by Embr Wave counter this effect and help relieve the uncomfortable effects of hot flashes without needing to change your core body temperature.
