This truly amazing piece of tech is making stress a thing of the past
We've all had one of those days. You know, the ones where you got up late because you couldn't sleep last night, you're horrendously behind schedule for work, the phone's ringing off the hook with calls from your boss who already hates you, your car has broken down, your kid is off school sick, and you feel like no one on earth has experienced stress quite like this.
You're certainly not the only one to feel this way, but despite what you may think, there is a solution to your problem. And, yes, it's one that doesn't mean walking around your office with a pained smile that tells your co-workers that "everything's fine", while you secretly scream inside.
Allow us to introduce you to TouchPoints, the wearable stress relief devices which could be the answer to nearly your every worry. Founded in 2015, TouchPoints alleviate stress through neuroscience and technology, working by sending vibrations that disengage the body’s instinctive 'fight or flight' response to stressful situations. Using patent-pending technology called BLAST, they offer a discreet and non-invasive method to remedy taxing moments in life.
When a person is feeling pressured - whether this be through a big presentation coming up at work, an unpleasant conversation that needs to be had with a manager, a desperate need for sleep, or whatever else - TouchPoints shifts the individual back into thinking with the logical, rational part of their brain, incredibly making their stress seem manageable.
If you're looking for results, look no further than this impressive statistic: TouchPoints users have reported a 71 per cent reduction in body sensations within 30 seconds.
Perhaps the revolutionary device has been so successful because it comes from a very personal place for its creators. Co-founder and CEO of The TouchPoint Solution, Vicki Mayo, spent countless sleepless nights watching her daughter experience vivid night terrors before reaching out to her friend Dr. Amy Serin for help.
"It was horrible. I felt helpless, like there was nothing I could do for her," Vicki said. "The whole family was suffering because she would wake up nightly and we’d all be awake. The following mornings we would be exhausted - we were caught in a spiral I couldn’t get out of. I felt like I had tried everything, and we were at our wit's end."
Having isolated a component of successful PTSD treatment, neuropsychologist Dr. Serin was using it to research the impact of stress-reduction using a handheld device on children, and soon suggested that Vicki's daughter try her product.
The treatment provided fantastic results and soon enough, Vicki and Dr. Serin decided to team up to create an instant stress-reduction solution that could help out individuals all across the globe who were grappling with stressful workloads.
Since then, the company has soared, with many of its users unable to praise it enough. Take TouchPoints user Wanda Gibson's husband, for example. After he was deployed nine years ago, he returned a "different man", who was often angry, impatient and depressed, and was soon diagnosed with PTSD.
After testing different methods of recovery, including counselling and medication, Wanda feared she would never have any resemblance of her old husband back. Until she discovered TouchPoints.
"I convinced him to try the sleep setting and the first night he slept better than he had in years!" said Wanda. "We are now three months out from the purchase. My sweet, gentle, kind husband has returned. He’s used them almost daily since then and I have no doubt that he has built new neuropathways which has helped him cope with the daily stresses that he encounters. He feels a million times better and is now equipped to deal with difficult situations with hope."
Wanda and her husband have joined thousands of others raving about TouchPoints - and you could be next. Next time you find that pained grimace emerging on your face in the office, you know what to do.
