You're not alone. More than two-thirds of women experience the effects of hot flashes, thanks to hormonal changes in the years around menopause. But just because hot flashes may seem inevitable, that doesn't mean you have no control over them. For women who want to know how to stop hot flashes fast, Embr Labs offers the Wave®, a personal body cooling system that can deliver instant and discreet relief, any time, no matter where you go.
Embr Wave: wearable relief for severe hot flashes
The Wave looks a bit like a smartwatch that's worn on the inside of your wrist. By simply pressing a button on the device or in a mobile app, you can generate a series of pleasantly cool or warm sensations on your skin, stimulating a natural connection to your brain that offers immediate relief from severe hot flashes.
What are hot flashes, exactly?
Hot flashes are intense feelings of warmth, usually felt on your skin, and often accompanied by heavy sweating and redness in your face, neck, and chest. The cause of hot flashes isn't exactly clear, but scientists believe it has to do with a mistaken signal sent to your internal thermostat that suggests your body needs to cool down. When your brain receives this information, it expands the blood vessels just under your skin to expel heat, causing you to feel overly warm. Your body starts perspiring, and your heart rate may accelerate as well. Hot flashes can last anywhere from 30 seconds to 10 minutes, and some women experience severe hot flashes for up to a decade or more.
Better sleep. Less stress. All-day comfort.
Along with help for severe hot flashes, Embr Wave can deliver comfort and relief for other conditions. Gentle, soothing waves at just the right temperature can help you fall asleep faster and keep you resting comfortably all night long. Relaxing warm or cool pulses can help you stay calm on days when your stress level is peaking. And for those who feel perpetually too hot or too cold, the Wave can change the perceived temperature of a room, bringing relief no matter who's in charge of the thermostat.
Technology for thermal wellness
Resembling a stylish wristband or bracelet, the Wave is actually a compact heat exchanger that generates warm or cool sensations on your skin. It's powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and it's as safe as touching a warm mug or an icy glass. With the Wave, you can access temperature relief and comfort on demand, anytime and anywhere.
How to get rid of hot flashes
To manage severe hot flashes, simply press a button on the side of the device or tap the app when you feel a hot flash coming on. The Wave will immediately generate a series of carefully engineered thermal pulses called Waveforms that are designed to maximize relief. You control the temperature and the duration of each session, with options that can last from 5 minutes up to 9 hours (for welcome relief for severe hot flashes at night).
The Embr Wave 2 app
For a more options and control, download the Embr Wave 2 app from Google Play or the iOS App Store. The Wave's mobile app unlocks all the power of this smart device and lets you choose preset warming or cooling sessions specifically designed to improve comfort, promote sleep, reduce stress, and manage severe hot flashes. Create customized thermal experiences by editing, saving, and renaming sessions.
The science behind the Wave
Here's how the Wave works: The skin on the inside of your wrist is full of thermoreceptors that register warm and cool sensations. These receptors communicate with your brain through the same neural networks that are related to touch, pleasure, emotion, and thermoregulation. By applying precise cooling sensations at the right spot and the right time, the Wave sends feel-good signals to your brain that can change the way the rest of your body experiences temperature.
Think of when you wrap your hands around a warm mug of cocoa or place a cool cloth on the back of your neck. These thermal sensations on your skin can help adjust your sense of comfort throughout your entire body, helping you feel better physically and emotionally. Embr Wave uses this same natural response mechanism in a controlled, safe, and repeatable way, rebalancing your sense of temperature and controlling hot flashes at the touch of a button.
Backed by studies
Embr Labs worked with Johnson & Johnson on studies that showed that women wearing the Wave felt 168% improvement in their ability to control hot flashes. And a study with UC Berkeley found that women reported feeling up to 9°F cooler after just three minutes of a session with the Wave.

What are hot flashes?
A hot flash is a sudden feeling of heat that may also cause your heart to beat faster, your body to sweat excessively, and your face, neck, and chest to turn red. These episodes are thought to be the result of a
false signal sent to the brain, suggesting that the body is overheated and needs to cool down. This causes blood vessels near the surface of your skin to expand, creating a sense of intense heat.
Are hot flashes only related to menopause?
While hot flashes are one of the most common symptoms of menopause and perimenopause, they can also be triggered by conditions like drug addiction, sleep disorders, hyperthyroidism, infections, and other diseases, as well as medications and treatments for certain types of cancer.
Does the Wave work for men as well as women?
Yes! While the Wave is frequently used by women experiencing hot flashes during menopause, this smart wristband can also deliver temperature relief for men with hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, and other temperature-related conditions.
