Stress affects so many people in so many ways. 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?
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 behaviour patterns that lessen your reaction to stress over time.
