Night sweats (hot flashes that happen while you're sleeping) are one of the most challenging symptoms you'll face as you go through the menopause transition. They're not just unpleasant in the moment, but as noted by the Mayo Clinic, they also have the potential to cause long-term sleep disruptions. And while these episodes are a common experience for women as they age, finding relief for menopause night sweats is no simple feat. Standard remedies like hormone replacement and prescription drugs tend to come with serious side effects. Natural remedies like yoga, acupuncture, exercise, and lifestyle changes may lessen the severity of episodes or their frequency, but they can't deliver the cool relief you need when you're in the middle of a hot flash at night.
Now, there's a new, natural solution for menopause night sweat relief that can bring immediate comfort on demand. It's the Embr Wave® from Embr Labs, a sleek wearable that creates waves of cooling sensations with the press of a button.
Embr Wave: cool relief for night sweats
Embr Wave may look like a simple smartwatch or bracelet, but within its stylish exterior is advanced technology that can deliver powerful menopause night sweat relief. Using a compact thermoelectric heat pump, the Wave is able to instantly generate pleasantly warm or cool pulses that are felt on the temperature-sensitive skin of your inner wrist. These sensations stimulate a natural connection to your brain that can deliver immediate assistance for hot flashes and night sweats.
Waveforms: precise pulses of thermal comfort
Embr Wave uses patented control systems to create precisely engineered series of warming or cooling pulses called Waveforms. These thermal sensations are designed to maximize relief for insomnia, stress, thermal discomfort, hot flashes, and night sweats. When thermoreceptors on the skin of your inner wrist register these sensations, they send a feel-good signal to the part of your brain that's responsible for emotion, pleasure, stress, and thermoregulation. This allows your brain to adjust the way you perceive temperature throughout your body, helping you feel more comfortable overall and bringing instant menopause night sweat relief.
How can cooling your wrist help with night sweats?
Think of how, on a hot day in the sun, splashing a little cold water on the back of your neck can make you feel cooler overall. Or how holding a hot cup of coffee in your hands can help your whole body feel warmer in winter. This physical phenomenon is the result of your body's natural ability to comfort itself with local thermal sensations. The Wave harnesses this instinctual response mechanism and gives you the power to use it in a precise, controlled, and convenient way.
Why menopause causes night sweats
During menopause and the years leading up to it, your body begins to produce less estrogen and progesterone, the hormones related to reproduction. These fluctuations in hormone levels can throw your internal thermostat off, causing your brain to believe your body is too hot when it's really not. As a result, your brain triggers a hot flash to help you quickly get rid of excess warmth. Blood vessels just beneath the skin open up to expel heat, causing you to feel a sudden burst of warmth. Your sweat glands go into overdrive, producing perspiration that can drench your bedclothes or business attire. You may feel anxiety and stress as your heart begins to race or beat irregularly.
When hot flashes happen at night, they can jolt you from a deep slumber and make it almost impossible to return to sleep. The same hormones that cause the hot flash can also interact with sleep-related hormones, leading to insomnia.
How to stop hot flashes at night with Embr Wave
With Embr Wave, you have relief for menopause night sweats right at your fingertips. When you wake up hot or feel a hot flash coming on, you can activate a series of cooling sensations simply by pressing a button on the side of the device or tapping the mobile app. Within seconds, the Wave will begin cooling the skin on your inner wrist, triggering your body's natural comfort response and bringing your body back into balance.
Additional benefits of Embr Wave
Embr Wave offers many benefits that extend beyond relief for night sweats.
Better sleep in general
If you're looking for menopause insomnia remedies, the Wave has you covered. Because temperature and sleep are intimately connected, Embr Wave offers specialized thermal sessions specifically engineered to help you get a better night's rest, whether you tend to sleep cold or it seems like you're always sleeping hot. Fall Asleep sessions use gradually slowing waves of warming or cooling to lull you to sleep more quickly and easily, while All Night sessions offer steady waves to keep your temperature balanced and help you stay comfortable all night long.
Control over comfort
Wherever you go and no matter the weather, Embr Wave gives you the power to control your experience with temperature. A UC Berkeley study found that participants who used the Wave for just three minutes were able to feel up to 5° warmer or cooler on average. Women found Embr Wave even more effective, reporting that they were able to feel up to 9°F cooler and 6°F warmer after using the device.
Lower stress levels
If you've ever stepped outside for some cool air to calm down or taken a hot bath to unwind at the end of a long day, you already know that temperature can be a powerful tool for fighting stress. Embr Wave gives you access to relaxing warming or cooling sensations at the press of a button, anytime you need help dealing with stressful or anxious moments.

What are menopause night sweats?
Night sweats are hot flashes that occur during the night. These episodes of intense warmth and heavy sweating can wake you up abruptly and leave your clothes and bedding drenched in sweat. Night sweats are commonly associated with menopause, when hormonal changes can interfere with the body's thermoregulation center. It's believed that fluctuating hormone levels cause the brain to falsely believe the body is overheating, triggering a hot flash or night sweat to expel heat quickly. Changing hormone levels can also have the opposite effect, causing the brain to believe the body is too cold and triggering menopause chills to warm up.
How does Embr Wave provide menopause night sweat relief?
Embr Wave is a thermal wristband that generates warm or cool sensations that are felt on the temperature-sensitive skin of the inner wrist. These sensations stimulate a natural connection to the brain that offers immediate relief from hot flashes and night sweats. When you feel a hot flash coming on or you're awakened by a night sweat episode, you can simply press a button or tap in the mobile app to generate a series of cool sensations that are precisely engineered to maximize relief and dissipate the effects of these episodes fast. Embr Wave provides more immediate assistance for night sweats than traditional strategies like diet and lifestyle changes. And the Wave is far easier to use and more discreet than typical menopause cooling devices.
Does the Wave change the body's core temperature?
No. Even during the most severe night sweats, the body's core temperature remains around 98.6°F. Embr Wave provides relief by harnessing the body's natural ability to respond to small amounts of temperature on the skin as a way of feeling better.
