Hormone replacement therapy and prescription drugs can bring some menopause relief, but these treatments aren't able to offer help right when a hot flash strikes and may also come with serious side effects. Non-pharmacological strategies for reducing the frequency and intensity of hot flashes include meditation, yoga, acupuncture, and diet and lifestyle changes. However, none of these approaches can cool you down quickly when your skin feels like it's on fire, and they're hardly convenient when you're trying to get things done without stopping for a yoga break. Menopause cooling products like ice packs, spray mists, cooling towels, and cooling gels may work in the moment; but especially in professional situations, these menopause cooling devices are messy, cumbersome, and conspicuous.
Embr Wave® can help. It's a groundbreaking wearable cooling device that offers instant menopause relief at the press of a button, clinically proven to manage hot flashes, night sweats, and other temperature-related symptoms.
Embr Wave: instant relief for menopause symptoms
The Wave is a smart, stylish device you wear on the inside of your wrist, where your skin is highly sensitive to temperature. While it looks a bit like a smart watch, the device actually houses a compact thermoelectric heat pump that generates pleasing warm and cool sensations on demand. These warm or cool pulses stimulate a natural connection to your brain that provides immediate menopause relief by changing your perception of temperature to help you feel more comfortable.
How it works
Think of how, on a cold day, you might wrap your hands around a mug of hot coffee to feel warmer and cozier all over. Or how dipping your toes into a cold pool of water on a blistering summer day can make your entire body feel a bit cooler in an instant. Embr Wave gives you the power to recreate this natural relief, delivering temperature in a series of precise and repeatable patterns called Waveforms that are carefully engineered to maximize menopause relief and to bring comfort in other ways.
The science of localized thermal sensation
Studies show that a concentrated thermal experience on your wrist can change the way your entire body perceives temperature. Thermoreceptors within the skin register warm and cool sensations, communicating these to the part of your brain that's related to pleasure, emotion, stress, and thermoregulation. By applying precise cooling sensations at the right spot and the right time, Embr Wave helps your brain recalibrate your comfort level so you can quickly adjust how hot or cold you feel.
How to get instant menopause relief
When you need fast menopause relief, simply press a button on the side of the Wave to begin generating a series of cooling sensations that can remedy the effects of hot flashes and night sweats. The cooling starts immediately, and sessions can last from 5 minutes up to 9 hours at a time. Embr Wave also features thermal sessions designed to tackle other symptoms of menopause, including comfort, sleep, and stress.
The symptoms of menopause
While you may experience a wide range of physical reactions during menopause or in the years leading up to it (perimenopause), hot flashes and night sweats are likely the most challenging symptoms. These episodes are believed to be caused by changing hormone levels in your body that cause your brain to mistakenly believe you're overheating. This triggers a series of reactions—hot flashes—to cool your body down fast. The blood vessels beneath your skin open wide to expel heat quickly, causing that familiar burning sensation. Your heart races to pump blood more quickly, which can lead to anxiety. And perhaps most embarrassing in professional situations, your sweat glands kick into overdrive, potentially soaking your clothing or hair. The whole experience can leave you exhausted and, when it happens at work, stressed and embarrassed as well.
That's why so many women have chosen Embr Wave when they need rapid menopause relief. The cool refreshment offered by the Wave can help to mitigate symptoms quickly, conveniently, and discreetly, allowing you to get on with your day without anyone knowing you're dealing with hot flashes and other menopause symptoms.
More benefits for thermal wellness
The thermal benefits provided by Embr Wave extend far beyond help for menopause and perimenopause symptoms.
Comfort all day long
Embr Wave makes it simple to manage your comfort level throughout the day. No matter where you go, you can rely on the Wave to provide instant cooling relief or soothing warmth with the press of a button or a tap in the app. A study with UC Berkeley showed that participants who used the Embr Wave for just three minutes were able to feel up to 5°F warmer or cooler on average, and women using the Wave were able to feel up to 9°F cooler.
Temperature plays a huge role in getting a good night's sleep. For women seeking menopause insomnia remedies, the Wave delivers gentle, relaxing sensations at just the right temperature to lull you to sleep faster and keep you comfortable all night long. A Johnson & Johnson study showed that using Embr Wave for two weeks helped participants reduce insomnia, sleep disturbances, and nighttime hot flashes.
Relief for stress
Embr Wave lets you use temperature to lower your stress level. Soothing waves of warm or cool sensations work in the same way that a warm bath or chilled drink can ease the tension of a long day. With the Wave, you've got thermal therapy on demand whenever you need to chill out or feel calmer.

What is menopause?
A natural part of aging, menopause is the end of a woman's reproductive years. It's marked by the cessation of the menstrual cycle and by changes in hormonal levels that can cause hot flashes, sleep problems, mood swings, and other symptoms. For many women, hot flashes and night sweats (hot flashes that happen at night) are the most distressing aspect of menopause and the years leading up to it. Hot flashes are thought to occur when the brain's thermoregulation center mistakenly believes the body is overheated. These episodes are the body's way of trying to cool down quickly by dilating blood vessels beneath the skin and activating sweat glands. Lasting anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes or more, hot flashes can be extremely disruptive and embarrassing, especially in professional situations.
How does Embr Wave provide menopause relief?
Embr Wave is a thermal wristband that generates cool sensations that are felt on the sensitive skin of the inner wrist. By creating localized temperature sensations in carefully optimized patterns, the Wave triggers an instinctual comfort response that tells your body it needs to rebalance its sense of how hot or cold it is. The feeling of coolness on the inner wrist immediately sends a feel-good message to the brain that helps to dissipate the effects of hot flashes, night sweats, and even nausea from menopause.
Does the Wave change the body's core temperature?
No—and it doesn't need to. Core body temperature has surprisingly little to do with your thermal comfort. Even during the most severe hot flash, your core body temperature remains around 98.6°F. Embr Wave simply helps you recalibrate your perception of temperature in a precise and repeatable way to maximize relief and comfort during a hot flash. In other words, if a hot flash is a false message telling your brain that your body is overheated and everything needs to go into overdrive, the Wave lets you push a button to send a competing message that says your body can calm down, so you can get back to feeling like yourself again.
