Frustration can arise as a result of the fight-or-flight response being triggered but not being able to be fully resolved or acted upon. It often leads to a buildup of tension and a sense of unease. TouchPoints during moments of intense frustration can help restore tranquility quickly, allowing you to navigate challenges with greater resilience and clarity.
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).
Frustration can trigger an increase in cortisol levels, the primary stress hormone. When individuals experience frustration, their bodies may perceive it as a threat or challenge, leading to the release of cortisol, which prepares the body for a fight-or-flight response. triple blind placebo-controlled trial with athletes showed TouchPoints™ stabilized cortisol levels during stressful events and reduced the level of stress.

A LASTING SOLUTION
When using TouchPoints™ consistently when frustrated, overtime you may not need them in certain situations as they become less stressful because of your TouchPoints™. 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 TouchPoints™, these new neural pathways can build overtime, progressively reducing the release of stress related hormones that can cause frustration.
When to use TouchPoints
Use as soon as the agitation or frustration starts.
If you can anticipate being in a stressful scenario, start using 15-30 minutes prior to the scenario.
HOW to use TouchPoints
Place TouchPoints on your wrists, pockets, or simply hold them.
Activate TouchPoints on the Fast/Purple setting.
Leave on until you feel a sense of calm.
"I am an EMDR trained therapist and often use pulsars with my clients for bilateral stimulation. My clients have found the bilateral vibration soothing and often ask if they can take my pulsars home with them so I was curious when I read about TouchPoints. I ordered a pair and lent them to one of my client's for the month. She reported that not only was she using them when she needed to calm down but that her elementary aged son (who struggles with emotional regulation and anger management) would come seek them out when he was upset. She told me, "He has never been able to use the coping skills he learns in therapy in the moment but with the TouchPoints he will come and get them when he is angry or overwhelmed. He loves them and it is great that he has something he knows will help when he is upset."
“Thank you for giving me my wonderful husband back! He was deployed 9 years ago and returned a very different man. Angry. Impatient. Depressed. Argumentative. Trouble sleeping. Diagnosed with PTSD. He’s gone through short periods when is has improved, but it has been a roller coaster ride. He’s tried getting help through counselling and medication, but no improvement lasted long. Enter Touchpoints. He was skeptical and worried that I had wasted our money purchasing them. I convinced him to try the sleep setting and the first night he slept better than he had in years! He then was motivated to try them while working at home. The Touchpoints helped him stay calm & focus when he’d struggled to do so consistently before. We are now three months out from the purchase. My sweet, gentle, kind husband has returned. He’s used them almost daily since then and I have no doubt that he has built new neuropathways which has helped him cope with the daily stresses that he encounters. He feels a million times better and is now equipped to deal with difficult situations with hope. I’m so grateful to Touchpoint Solution for making these available. I’m not sure my husband would have ever truly returned from his deployment had it not been for your devices. Thanks again!”
