How TouchPoints Work
EXPLAINING THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE REVOLUTION
The Science of Stress
Stress stinks. Not only does it cause your heart to race, head to hurt and focus to go out the window, but when experienced over time it can actually shorten your life. And it’s a big problem – in fact, according to the American Institute of Stress, 77% of people experience stress that affects their physical health. But what is stress and how does it wreak havoc on so many of us?
Stress is our brain’s automatic response to pressure. When it feels threatened, it engages our “fight or flight” sympathetic nervous system and trouble ensues.
But there’s a trick to stopping that reaction in its tracks: shifting to your logical, peaceful parasympathetic nervous system. And that’s exactly what TouchPoints does in just a few seconds.
USER STUDY CONFIRMS 74% REDUCTION IN STRESS IN 30 SECONDS
The data showed that within just 30 seconds of using TouchPoints, people experienced a 74% reduce in their stress levels and a 68% reduction in body sensations related to stress. This data combined with our archived data suggest that there is a consistency in offering users significant relief from physiological and psychological stress in about 30 seconds.
3 Steps to Managing Stress
And that’s exactly how TouchPoints work, helping you shift from “fight or flight” mode to the calm, logical part of your brain. They use gentle haptic micro-vibrations that has been proven to reduce stress by over 70% in 30 seconds.
Breakthrough Stress Reduction Through BLAST
TouchPoints’ patent-pending BLAST (bi-lateral alternating stimulation-tactile technology) is scientifically proven to alter the body’s “fight or flight” response caused by stress. The wearables emit vibrations that disengage your standard stress response which can impact your performance and health.
And the results have shown to be lifechanging. 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.
CORTISOL LEVELS STABILIZE AT THE PUSH OF A BUTTON
“We are excited to unveil the results of academic research that shows non-invasive technology can be worn during stressful tasks such as presentations to stabilize cortisol compared with a control group. This could be a game-changer for anyone whose stress has ever pushed them out of the zone of performance. If we are stabilizing cortisol, we can reduce inflammation, mental burnout, and essentially enhance performance in real-time without mental rehearsal or cognitive strategies. Being able to use the technology when you give a speech, take a test, or play spots could take performance to the next level.” - JOURNAL OF BIOTECHNOLOGY AND BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE
