The TouchPoint™ Solution was founded in 2015 by Neuropsychologist Dr. Amy Serin and executive child advocate Vicki Mayo. Over the last decade, Dr. Amy Serin’s work in therapy and neuroscience led to the discovery that a component of PTSD treatment could be used as a stand-alone product for a range of individuals whose stress hamper performance, relaxation, and their ability to cope with sensory stimuli. Dr. Serin used quantitative electroencephalogram data, existing neuroscientific research, and archival data to quantify significant brain changes after just seconds of use. She soon recognized that this method was too powerful to be limited to use strictly through doctors' offices. Its effectiveness offered the opportunity to help many and so she partnered with long-time friend entrepreneur, Vicki Mayo, to bring TouchPoints™ to the world. Our goal is to bring relief to millions of people who suffer from stress and by offering neuroscience lifestyle wearables called TouchPoints™. TouchPoints™ officially launched to the public in December 2016 and in less than six weeks sold over $500,000.
"This is something everyone needs...it's not just a product. It's a fundamental change in how we treat stress. It's so life-changing." - Business Gazette
TouchPoints™ are non-invasive, neuroscience wearables that use patent-pending BLAST™ technology (bilateral alternating stimulation-tactile) to relieve stress, anxiety, and focus issues enhancing performance and sleep. The alternating vibrations are designed to override the body’s Fight, Flight or Freeze (F3) response to stress and restore homeostatic nervous system functioning allowing the user to think clearly and experience calmness. TouchPoints™ are designed to improve self-regulation and have been shown to reduce stress by 71% in just 30 seconds.
Our vision is the Creation of a more healthy, peaceful, and productive world through a fundamental shift in the way people understand and handle their stress response.
We are deeply committed to giving back. It is our co-founders' mission to create a more healthy, peaceful, and productive world through a fundamental shift in the way people understand and handle their stress response by making BLAST technology accessible for everyone. From our base business model of giving away one set of TouchPoints™ for every two we sell, to our commitment to local vendors for manufacturing and assembly: TouchPoint™ above all else values people.
We are committed to making TouchPoints™ accessible to those in need and have a scholarship program, awarding over $60,000 in product during the first three months of our launch. Our founders are committed to ethical principles and moving forward with purpose and passion.
"They definitely put a smile on his face & ours! "Thank You" does not suffice....we are so very grateful. These [TouchPoints] came at a time where we, honestly, have felt like we had just been dumped into a black hole... Autism?? We are just barely scratching the surface with knowledge & our family's new "normal." Thank you for doing this!!!" - Diana Brassfield
