Automated Bi-lateral Stimulation Demo

As a therapist you already know the many benefits of bi-lateral stimulation or "tapping." With BLAST (bi-lateral alternating stimulation tactile) embedded in wireless TouchPoints devices, you can elevate your practice and/or offer bi-lateral stimulation as a tool for your patient’s in-home use.


Wired tappers such as the Theratappers or Neurotek devices are bulky and require constant changes of battery. TouchPoints are wireless, offer different speeds, and are recharged simply by plugging in the included micro-USB cable.


Concerned about dissociation? Since our inception, people have reached for TouchPoints over 3 million times in non-therapeutic settings as a general stress reducer with no reported incidences of increased dissociation. In fact, using multimodal and physiological “brain hacks” like BLAST technology during Phase 1 can actually help your patients calm down and add some desensitization to their stressful experience of coming to see you for the first time.


Try our stress-relieving technology firsthand - we know you'll see the difference in the ease of use and impact on your patients.

The Science Behind the Solution

The patent-pending BLAST technology in TouchPoints is backed by decades of scientific and academic research on bilateral stimulation that shows it significantly reduces stress by altering the body’s “fight or flight” response. The wearables emit vibrations that disengage your standard stress response which can impact your performance and health. As this image depicts, TouchPoints' BLAST technology rapidly reduces excess beta wave activity in the brain which is associated with stress.


And the results have shown to be literally life changing. This unique process of shifting from one brain area to another has been proven to create new behavior patterns that lessen an individual's reaction to stress over time. For more published research and case studies, visit ourresearch page.

Ways To Wear TouchPoints

TouchPoints are worn as a synchronized pair with one on the right side and one on the left side of thebody. Skin contact is not necessary as long as the vibrations are felt.

The Use of TouchPoints in EMDR Therapy

TouchPoints are wearable BLAST devices partially based on the principles of eye movement sensitization and reprocessing therapy and thus can be used to assist the clinician in the administration of EMDR therapy. EMDR involves a 3-pronged approach that focuses on memories, present disturbances, and future actions to reprocess a client’s memories/experiences that are causing distress and fully integrate them to resolve symptoms. TouchPoints may facilitate this process primarily through their ability to specifically reduce physiological arousal and distress, which then facilitates the resolution of cognitive distress.

PHASE 1: HISTORY TAKING

In phase one, the clinician will take a thorough history of the client and together develop a treatment plan. The history will include a discussion of the client’s specific problems, his/her behaviors stemming from those problems, and his/her symptoms. With this newfound information, the clinician will work with the client to define the specific targets on which to use EMDR.


These targets typically include:

• Past events that created the problems

• Present situations that are distressing

• Key skills or behaviors the client needs to learn for his/her future well-being


It’s recommended to encourage clients to wear TouchPoints from the very start of phase one. As recall of these past events can lead to both cognitive and physiological distress, TouchPoints can help by reducing stress throughout this phase. In particular, since TouchPoints specifically reduce physiological distress, adaptive information processing (AIP) models predict that the absence of physiological distress will more easily lead to the resolution of cognitive distress. Also, by keeping the physiological distress minimal going into the reprocessing phases, this can significantly shorten treatment time.


PHASE 2: PREPARATION

Phase two is when the clinician will explain the overall EMDR process, including how it is performed and what the client may expect during and after treatment. Additionally, phase two is when the clinician will teach the client several relaxation techniques that the client may use to calm him/herself in the setting of any emotional disturbance that may arise during EMDR. The primary goal of this phase is to establish a trusting therapeutic relationship. TouchPoints may be used during this phase to reduce the stress associated with the EMDR process, and thus facilitate the clinician-client relationship. It also helps to instill confidence when teaching calming techniques to a patient.

PHASE 3: ASSESSMENT

Phases 3-6: Reprocessing Phases – These phases will be repeated systematically multiple times on each target to fully integrate those memories that are causing distressing symptoms.


During phase three, each target is accesses systematically. The clinician identifies aspects of the target to be processed. First, the client chooses and rates a specific scene or picture from the target that best represents the memory. Then, the client chooses a statement that expresses a negative self-belief associated with the event. After, the client then picks and rates a positive self-statement that he/she would rather believe and which he/she will hope to replace the current negative self-belief. If TouchPoints have been used in phases one and two, the patient’s level of physiological distress should typically be quite low compared to their cognitive distress. (It’s important to remember that, if TouchPoints have been used during this assessment phase, then they need to be applied before the body scan phase (phase six to come), as well, for sake of continuity.)


PHASE 4: DESENSITIZATION

Phases 3-6: Reprocessing Phases – These phases will be repeated systematically multiple times on each target to fully integrate those memories that are causing distressing symptoms.


In phase four, the clinician will lead the client in sets of eye movements with appropriate shifts and changes of focus until the subjective rating of distressing emotions associated with the main target is reduced to nothing. Then, the clinician repeats the process for any memories associated with the main target that arises during the session. As a wireless wearable device, TouchPoints can be used outside of the therapy office and EMDR sessions to help accelerate the desensitization process. Note that the client should not be instructed to use TouchPoints to process targets without professional supervision; rather, the client should be encouraged to use TouchPoints in real-time to reduce the stress associated with any triggers.

PHASE 5: INSTALLATION

Phases 3-6: Reprocessing Phases – These phases will be repeated systematically multiple times on each target to fully integrate those memories that are causing distressing symptoms.


The goal of phase five is to concentrate on and increase the strength of the positive belief that the client has identified to replace his/her original negative belief. Again, TouchPoints can be worn here to keep physiological distress minimal which will help increase the patient’s confidence in the new positive belief.


PHASE 6: BODY SCAN

Phases 3-6: Reprocessing Phases – These phases will be repeated systematically multiple times on each target to fully integrate those memories that are causing distressing symptoms.


During phase three, each target is accesses systematically. The clinician identifies aspects of the target to be processed. First, the client chooses and rates a specific scene or picture from the target that best represents the memory. Then, the client chooses a statement that expresses a negative self-belief associated with the event. After, the client then picks and rates a positive self-statement that he/she would rather believe and which he/she will hope to replace the current negative self-belief. If TouchPoints have been used in phases one and two, the patient’s level of physiological distress should typically be quite low compared to their cognitive distress. (It’s important to remember that, if TouchPoints have been used during this assessment phase, then they need to be applied before the body scan phase (phase six to come), as well, for sake of continuity.)


PHASE 7: CLOSURE

Phase seven’s goal is for the client to leave the EMDR session feeling better than in the beginning. If processing the target is not complete, the clinician will assist the client in using self-calming techniques to deal with any residual distressing emotions. Again, TouchPoints may help reduce any residual physiological distress which can facilitate target resolution and perhaps shorten treatment time.

PHASE 8: RE-EVALUATION

Phase eight opens every new session at the beginning. During the final phase, the clinician checks to ensure that the positive results of the previous sessions have been maintained, identifies any new areas that need treatment, and continues reprocessing the additional targets. If TouchPoints have been used throughout the previous EMDR sessions, then they should be applied during this phase as well to maintain continuity with other sessions as much as possible.
