Indiegogo is excited to announce that we will be giving our backers the chance to win a TouchPoints™ basic set!
TouchPoints are neuroscientific wearables that are worn on either side of the body for 15 minutes to reduce stress and anxiety. By using BLAST technology, TouchPoints deliver gentle vibrations to shift you out of “fight or flight” mode and into the logical, rational part of your brain called the “rest and digest” mode. This one simple neuroscience hack is proven to reduce stress by up to 70% in as little as 30 seconds. It is a natural and effective solution to anxiety and focus issues, and can enhance performance and sleep
Vicki Mayo, co-founder and CEO, developed the idea for TouchPoints when her four-year-old daughter was struggling with terrible night terrors. After consulting her friend and neuropsychologist, Dr. Amy Serin, she learned about BLAST technology and saw firsthand how powerful a tool it was in helping her daughter go to sleep. Because the body’s natural stress response is directly relatable to things like sleep, focus, anger, cravings and more – the dynamic duo realized the potential these two little devices had and set out on a mission to bring TouchPoints to the world.
In 2017 Mayo and Serin decided to launch a new version of TouchPoints — TouchPoints basic — on Indiegogo for the first time. “We loved the concept of crowdfunding and we were thrilled to try Indiegogo because of its friendly, engaged and supportive community. We knew our technology could benefit so many people, and that Indiegogo was the right platform to help launch our new model. And we were right!,” says Mayo. TouchPoints basic raised over $200,000 on Indiegogo — 956% of its goal.
