GIVING BAD NEWS

Better with BLAST 

THE STRESS RESPONSE

When faced with the responsibility of delivering bad news, it can be common to enter your fight/flight/freeze mode. You may be tempted to flee, delay delivering the news or deliver it insensitively. Using BLAST® while giving bad news can create a calming environment, aiding in the emotional processing of difficult news. 

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 stressed, 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 cause stress.

74% Reduction in Stress in 30 Seconds
