BLAST AWAY

ANXIETY

THE STRESS RESPONSE

When faced with a perceived threat or danger, it is a natural physiological reaction for the body to have a fight or flight response. In individuals with anxiety, this response can be triggered in situations that are not actually dangerous, leading to excessive fear and worry. Anxiety may result in constant worry and fear, difficulty concentrating, disrupted sleep, physical symptoms like headaches and nausea, avoidance of situations that trigger anxiety, and a decreased quality of life. BLAST® is a supportive tool to restore the feeling of calm and retrain the way your body perceives non-dangerous scenarios causing anxiety.   

HOW BLAST HELPS

TouchPoint Solution’s wearable devices are embedded with patented BLAST® (bi-lateral alternating stimulation tactile) technology. BLAST® is scientifically proven to alter the body’s “fight or flight” response caused by stress. The wearables emit alternating vibrations that disengage your standard stress response (sympathetic nervous system), and shift you into the calm, logical side of your brain (parasympathetic nervous system). 

THE LONGTERM BENEFITS

When using BLAST® consistently when feeling anxious, overtime you may not need them in certain situations as they become less stressful because of BLAST®. One of the ways BLAST® works is by creating new neural pathways that help modify the memories that trigger our stress response. With continued use of BLAST®, these new neural pathways can build overtime, progressively reducing the release of stress related hormones associated with anxiety.  

Cortisol, a hormone released during the fight or flight response, can play a role in anxiety. In individuals with anxiety disorders, cortisol levels may be chronically elevated, leading to increased stress and anxiety. Additionally, cortisol can affect the functioning of the brain's fear circuitry, making it more difficult to regulate fear and anxiety responses. (Bomyea, J., & Risbrough, V.)


A triple-blind, placebo-controlled randomized trial of the effect of TouchPoint’s™ BLAST® on reducing stress-related cortisol and anxiety showed TouchPoints™ stabilized cortisol levels during stressful events and reduced the level of stress.
