HOW TOUCHPOINTS WORK

sIMPLE STEPS TO MANAGE STRESS

STRESS HITS

Stress engages our “fight or flight” response, impacting  our health, focus, sleep and performance.

ACTIVATE TOUCHPOINTS

TouchPoints, placed on both sides of the body, gently vibrate to activate your “calm” response.

FEEL CALM

In seconds, you gain control over your stress, thinking clearly and experiencing a sense of balance and calm. 

CHANGE REACTION

This process creates lasting new behavior patterns, lessening the negative impacts of stress over time.



Step-by-step use for Touchpoints to systematically desensitize yourself from past stressful events 

TouchPoints’ patented BLAST (bi-lateral alternating stimulation-tactile technology) is scientifically proven to alter the body’s “fight or flight” response caused by stress. The wearables gentle vibrations disengage your default stress response which can impact your performance and health. This unique process of shifting from one brain area to another has been proven to create new behavior patterns that lessen your reaction to stress over time.

To use TouchPoints for mental health, begin by thinking of a stressful situation. Note how your body feels when you think of that stressful situation. Your body holds that tension somewhere - in your shoulders or neck or perhaps you feel a tightness in your chest or your stomach stars hurting. These physical symptoms are all key indicators that your sympathetic nervous system (the fight or flight mechanism) is initiating. Rate the level of the stress (0-10 with 0 as not stressful and 10 as very stressful). Also rate the level of body sensation (ie. tightness in chest, etc) on a scale of 0-10.

Take out your TouchPoints and put them on the recommended setting, and pair one with the other. If you need help pairing please watch our getting started video. If you don’t know what setting to use we recommend starting with the yellow setting. You can also research dozens of uses for TouchPoints and the associated usage card here in our “Encyclopedia of Uses.”  There are lots of ways to wear your TouchPoints, as long as you place one on the right and one on the left side of your body. You must use both at once and they must be on the opposite sides of the body. Notice the soothing vibrations. To use TouchPoints for mental health, begin by thinking of a stressful situation. Note how your body feels when you think of that stressful situation. Your body holds that tension somewhere - in your shoulders or neck or perhaps you feel a tightness in your chest or your stomach stars hurting. These physical symptoms are all key indicators that your sympathetic nervous system (the fight or flight mechanism) is initiating. Rate the level of the stress (0-10 with 0 as not stressful and 10 as very stressful). Also rate the level of body sensation (ie. tightness in chest, etc) on a scale of 0-10.

As you notice the vibrations try to think of the stressful thing you started with in Step 1.  You should feel the physical symptoms you notated disappearing. This is indicative of your brain shifting from the "fight, flight, or freeze" part of your brain (sympathetic nervous system)  into its  calm, logical part (parasympathetic nervous system). As you think about the stressful thing now it will feel more factual versus emotional. Your logical brain is now free to problem solve and as a result create new long term neural pathways (memories) of this scenario without having the emotional response of stress and physical symptoms associated with it. 

Re-rate the level of stress (0-10) now and the level of body sensation (0-10). You should have a marked improvement, however you can keep the TouchPoints on for as long as you want or until the rating has dropped significantly.

The stress relief and clarity you now have will stay with you even after your turn your TouchPoints off. You may need to repeat this exercise a few times for a few days in a row to build more neural pathways if the scenario was an especially difficult one. 

If you continue to feel plagued by stress, either repeat the same steps, change to the blue or purple setting (if you began on the yellow setting), or use for longer.

Note: the majority of users feel a 74 percent decrease in the body sensations associated with the scenario within 30 seconds of use.

Now that you have mastered this technique you can use TouchPoints anytime anywhere. You don’t have to have to follow steps 1-5 exactly. You can “spot use” your TouchPoints in moments of stress.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE "MAGIC"

TouchPoints work by altering the body's stress response with scientifically-proven BLAST (Bi-lateral Alternating Stimulation Tactile) technology. BLAST uses gentle, alternating vibrations on each side of the body to shift your brain from your default "fight or flight" response to your calm and in-control response.  Over time, TouchPoints retrains your body, creating new behavior patterns that lessen the negative impacts of stress.


TouchPoints are non-invasive and safe for use by adults and kids to relieve stress without drugs or side effects.

RESEARCH STUDIES

Applied BLAST Evidence From Quantitative Electroencephalogram

Applied BLAST Evidence from Quantitative Electroencephalogram

This study used quantitative electroencephalograms to measure the impact of TouchPoints on stress. The results showed a significant decrease in excess beta waves (stress) after using TouchPoints.


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

Effect of Bilateral Alternating Somatosensory Stimulation on Reducing Stress-Related Cortisol

This triple blind placebo-controlled trial with athletes showed TouchPoints stabilized cortisol levels during stressful events and reduced the level of stress points even when cortisol traditionally spikes.


Impact Of TouchPoints On Stress Reduction
