ENCYCLOPDIA OF USES

BLAST® AWAY

OBSESSING (ADULTS)

THE STRESS RESPONSE

When adults experience stress, their brains can get stuck in a "fight-flight-freeze" mode. This can make them obsessively think about the stressful situation or problem, kind of like a broken record playing the same thoughts over and over again. It's like your brain can't hit the pause button, and it can be hard to break free from those repetitive, worrisome thoughts. It may manifest as constant rumination, heightened anxiety, and difficulty concentrating on tasks. BLAST® can help you think calmly and logically, helping you break out of these obsessive thoughts. 

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 to ease obsessive thinking and behavior, 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 that can heighten obsessive thinking and behaviors.

Research-Proven measurable impact
