Overcoming PTSD - TouchPoints Review
Today Brad and I are reviewing Touchpoints, which is a product that helps reduce anxiety.
So today I’m going to talk to you about TouchPoints, how they work, and
when to use them!
TouchPoints work by harnessing the power of bilateral stimulation which is a process that is used in EMDR therapy as well as other therapies and relaxation tools.
Essentially how it works is that TouchPoints alternate vibrating left and right. So when you’re holding them in each hand the right and left side of your brain are stimulated.
The left/right brain stimulation simulates the REM cycle in sleep. REM stands for Rapid Eye Movement, which is a phase of sleep when your eyes move extremely quickly under your eyelids as you sleep and your brain processes the events from your day.
So in essence TouchPoints helps you simulate the REM process during the day.
TouchPoints are great because they can be used anywhere, and although they are pretty loud (so you wouldn’t want to use them in a crowded place), it’s great to have on hand to calm you down when you need it.
You can also use these right before bed to help get a calmer and more peaceful night sleep.
