INABILITY TO STAY CALM
Stressful situations can trigger your fight/flight/freeze response making it tough to stay calm. Inability to stay calm can result in racing thoughts, difficulty concentrating, impulsive decisions and irritability. We all get worked up sometimes, but TouchPoints can help maintain a sense of calm.
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).
Excess levels of cortisol may be released as your body’s response to stress that may result in the inability to stay calm. A triple blind placebo-controlled trial with athletes showed TouchPoints™ stabilized cortisol levels during stressful events and reduced the level of stress. (Leal-Junior, E. C., Casalechi, H. L., Machado, C. dos, Serin, A., Hageman, N. S., & Johnson, D. S., 2019)
A LASTING SOLUTION
When using TouchPoints™ consistently while stressed, 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 result in the inability to stay calm.
When to use TouchPoints
Use as soon as stress 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.
"Working in an industry that thrives under pressure, constant deadlines and last minute changes can have a negative affect on even the calmest of souls. I met Vicki Mayo and her team (ironically) in the midst of covering a very involved and chaotic event. The timing couldn't have been more perfect. As soon as she showed me the device, it peaked my interest and after trying them just once, I noticed a difference I've never experienced before. The almost "instant calming" effect was mind-blowing. Breathing techniques can take time to kick in, but the [TouchPoints] managed to take my mind off the situation and restored calm throughout my entire body within minutes. I would highly recommend them to anyone dealing with anxiety or panic attacks, or a highly-pressured job. No prescriptions, just a simple response our bodies need to restore you back to a healthy state of mind."

“I was watching Innovation Nation on CBS one morning and Touchpoint Solutions was featured in the first segment. I was very intrigued to learn about the science behind touch points and how the company was created by two women. I've never really been good at dealing with stress, so hearing that touch points can reduce 70% of stress in 30 seconds or less was really appealing. I experience most of my stress while driving. Since I received my touch points, I have noticed a significant decrease in my body's aggressive response when I have my touch points on the calm setting in five o'clock traffic. They have also really helped with falling asleep faster since I am one of those people who plan the next day in my head as soon as I go to bed at night. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!”
