WELCOME TO TOUCHPOINTS
TouchPoints are patented wearables that are scientifically proven to reduce the negative impacts of stress, increasing focus, improving sleep, enhancing performance and keeping you centered.
Developed by neuropsychologists, TouchPoints deliver powerful stress relief without drugs or side effects. By using gentle alternating vibrations on both sides of the body, TouchPoints shift you from your “fight or flight” stress response to a peaceful, calm response.
