ENCYCLOPDIA OF USES

BLAST® AWAY

LASHING OUT AT OTHERS

THE STRESS RESPONSE

Lashing out at others can be an unhealthy way for the body to release the excess energy and tension built up during the fight-or-flight response, having negative consequences on relationships and personal well-being. BLAST® can help prevent lashing out and impulsive decisions, or if it’s too late, restore calm fast and recover. 

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 calm down after lashing out at others, 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 you to lash out at others. 

IMPACT OF TOUCHPOINTS ON ATHLETES

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

Research has shown that elevated cortisol levels can lead to increased irritability, mood swings, and aggressive behavior. 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)
