Did you know that you don’t have to experience accidental trauma (e.g., a near death car accident or natural disaster) to get PTSD?
Sufferers also should be given access to real-time solutions to calm the anxiety response outside of their clinical appointments. We suggest adding TouchPoints™ to a comprehensive treatment plan as a consumer product adjunct to treatment. Our users with PTSD use TouchPoints™ to manage panic attacks, prevent angry outbursts, to reduce unhealthy cravings, and to help them go to sleep or return to sleep if they wake in the nighttime.
Most importantly, know that PTSD is a treatable condition and does not have to be lifelong with the right treatment.
