When facing your fears, it is common to experience increased heart and breathing rate, sudden sweating, shaking, freezing, or urge to flee the situation. This is your body’s fight-flight-freeze response kicking in. This is a natural response to a perceived threat or danger, however, it is not always necessary or appropriate. TouchPoints can be used to turn off the fight-flight-freeze response when you’re feeling scared.
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).
Studies show that within just 30 seconds of using TouchPoints, people experienced a 74% reduction in their stress levels and a 68% reduction in body sensations related to stress. This data combined with our archived data suggest that there is a consistency in offering users significant relief from physiological and psychological stress in about 30 seconds.
A LASTING SOLUTION
When using TouchPoints™ consistently when thinking about or facing your fears, overtime you may not need them in certain situations as they become less stressful because of your TouchPoints™. One of the ways BLAST work is by creating new neural pathways that help modify the memories that trigger our stress response. With continued use of TouchPoints™, these new neural pathways can build overtime, progressively reducing the release of stress related hormones related to the fear.
When to use TouchPoints
Use when thinking about a fear or during a scenario inflicting fear.
If you're able to anticipate it, use 15-30 minutes prior to a scenario that causes fear.
HOW to use TouchPoints
Before you start, rate your stress level on a scale of 1-10.
Place TouchPoints on your wrists, ankles, clipped to pant pockets, or simply hold them in your hands.
Activate TouchPoints on the Fast/Purple setting.
After 5 minutes, rescale your stress level. The stress/fear level should have reduced. Repeat until the fear reduces significantly.
"The Touchpoints work great! I'd been putting off getting my driver's license for years due to my fear of driving. I decided it was time to break through that fear and went ahead and got some driving lessons. My Touchpoints arrived in the mail the day before my road test and I'm convinced they were my saving grace. I was literally shaking from anxiety in the hours leading up to my road test, but I grabbed my handy little Touchpoints and they helped calm me down to the point that I did not appear visibly nervous and was able to successfully pass my road test and earn my driver's license! Yay!”
