Life is overwhelming. From a culture of being busy to lack of sleep to parenting - we all need a little something to help us with “life.” TouchPoints can be that tool! TouchPoints work as a pair and use a proprietary neuroscientific technology to reduce stress by giving the user gentle, haptic micro-vibrations. With its many applications, all rooted in science-based stress relief, TouchPoints are the perfect tool you have been looking for.
Using gentle, alternating micro-vibrations called BLAST (bilateral alternating stimulation tactile), TouchPoints give the user a gentle vibration that affects the brain and alters the body's stress response to restore calm. This also relieves the associated body sensations that often accompany stress (i.e. stomachaches, headaches, or tightness in the chest).
The patent-pending BLAST technology in TouchPoints is backed by decades of scientific and academic research on bilateral stimulation that shows significant reduction in stress with use. As the image below depicts, TouchPoints' BLAST technology rapidly reduces excess beta wave activity in the brain which is associated with stress.
Based on the intended purpose for use, TouchPoints are worn on each side of the body preventatively or on-the-spot for 15 minutes before, during or after a stressful situation. We have dozens of specific recommendations based on common uses in our Encyclopedia of Uses.
