When you're stressed, the 'fight or flight' part of your brain engages. TouchPoints shift you into the logical, rational part of your brain and allow you to think clearly and experience calm all within seconds. Having the ability to think rationally without an associated body sensation helps the brain create new neural pathways that are net positive, and this has a lasting effect on your brain.
Do TouchPoints work on every condition related to stress and anxiety?
TouchPoints do not treat or cure any medical conditions but can help manage the underlying stress that accompanies many conditions in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle.
What's the difference between TouchPoints for Calm, TouchPoints for Sleep and TouchPoints for Kids?
TouchPoints for Calm, TouchPoints for Sleep, and TouchPoints for Kids all use the same BLAST technology to alter the body's stress response. All three bundles provide the experience of calm, increased focus, enhanced performance, improved sleep, minimized anger, and reduced cravings. All three bundles feature the same three settings (blue - sleep/meditation, yellow - calm/focus, and purple - anger/agitation), rechargeable batteries with a 3-4 hour battery life, and are splash resistant as well.
Note that the main difference between TouchPoints for Calm, Sleep, and Kids is the accessories included.
TouchPoints for Calm bundles feature sleek-looking silicone or stainless steel wristbands for ease of access, and so that users may wear TouchPoints around the wrist.
TouchPoints Sleep model features a built-in timer to allow for sleep. The Sleep bundle includes zippered sweatbands to provide additional comfort, reduce the sound of the TouchPoints' vibrations, and so that users may wear TouchPoints around arms or ankles.
TouchPoints for Kids bundles come with cool-colored silicone watchbands for extra customization, ease of access, and so that youthful users may wear TouchPoints around the wrist.

What is the TouchPoint Challenge?
The TouchPoint Challenge stimulates a stressful event so you can quickly feel the stress reduction.
Here’s how you can take the challenge:
1.Think of an event that was particularly stressful for you. On a scale of 1-10, rate the stress level of that event.
2.While thinking about the event, notice your body sensations. Where in your body do you feel the stress (i.e. upset stomach, chest tightness)? On a scale of 1-10, rate the intensity of the body sensation.
3. Turn your TouchPoints on.We suggest using the blue setting.
4. Continue to focus on the stressful event while your TouchPoints are on.
5. After 30 seconds, turn the TouchPoints off and rate the stress of the event again using a 1-10 scale and rate the intensity of the body sensations using a 1-10 scale.
If you did not feel a significant reduction, turn the TouchPoints again and repeat the challenge until the stress level has been lowered.
Congratulations, you have just completed the TouchPoint challenge!

For TouchPoints to work, one must be on the right side of the body and one must be on the left. TouchPoints do not need to be touching the skin as long as you can feel the vibrations.
TouchPoints can be used for a short duration to spot treat stress, or they may be left on for longer periods of time to prevent it.
Why do you have to wear two TouchPoints?
What if TouchPoints don't work on me?
There are no known conditions that would render TouchPoints ineffective. TouchPoints should work on everyone because of how the brain integrates sensory input.
If it feels like your TouchPoints aren’t producing calm it could be because they are not on the right setting for you. Cycle through a couple different settings to find the one that works best for you.
If you are panicking or thinking about an extremely stressful event, it may take longer than 30 seconds to feel the difference. In this case, leave your TouchPoints on and then reassess every minute. In a few minutes, there should be a noticeable difference.
If you have a severe medical or mental health condition or are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, this may interfere with the results. If you have a dissociative disorder, autism, or agenesis of the corpus callosum, you may not be able to notice the positive changes even if they are occurring.
Can TouchPoints be used for Parkinson’s Disorder (PD)?
We do have many customers reporting that using TouchPoints on the calm, anger, or performance settings may reduce the incidence of tremors associated with Parkinson's. Also, many customers report that using TouchPoints helps reduce the anger/agitation, and anxiety associated with these conditions and the "rebound" effect of medication.
There are two types of tremors, resting tremors and action tremors. TouchPoints seems to make action tremors better. Since Essential tremors and cerebellar tremors and action type tremors, we believe that Touchpoints technology works on the same brain circuity which is why they would likely result in improved control and tremor severity.
Currently, there are universities interested in pursuing research given these findings, but we as a company have not yet researched this. TouchPoints are shown to reduce the overall stress response and since TouchPoints are a general wellness device, we are still learning of so many potential applications to improve people's lives!
