INABILITY TO THINK RATIONALLY (KIDS)

THE STRESS RESPONSE

Stressful events can engage the fight, flight or freeze response, making it. hard for kids to think positively. This can lead to difficulties in school, impaired social relationships, and a higher likelihood of making impulsive and potentially harmful choices. If you have a Negative Nelly on your hands, use BLAST® and see if those negative thoughts can change into more reasonable or positive thinking. You can't force positive thinking on your child, so meet them where they are at in their thinking and see if it changes. 

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 while 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 result in the inability to think rationally.  

IMPACT OF TOUCHPOINTS ON ATHLETES

Effect Of Bilateral Alternating Somatosensory Stimulation On Reducing Stress-Related Cortisol

Studies in psychology and economics have explored how stress influences decision-making. For example, the work of George Loewenstein and others has examined how stress can lead to impulsive and emotionally driven decisions rather than rational ones.


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 BLAST® 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)
