NuCalm is the Stress Solution You've Been Looking For

Feeling stressed? Worn down? Like you just can’t get enough sleep? The Johnson Center is offering a new stress reduction solution that may be for you. NuCalm is a groundbreaking technology used in over 2 million clinical procedures that has been found to help decrease overall acute and chronic stress and anxiety levels.

Stress is an inevitable part of daily life, but can still take a toll on our physical and mental health. Chronic stress can lead to a further host of health problems and hinder our ability to recover from adversity, acute stress, and other challenges. This is why managing your body’s stress levels is one of the most important things you can do for your health.

What is NuCalm?

NuCalm is an FDA-approved clinical system designed to help your mind and body relax naturally within minutes. Founded in 2009, Nucalm is the world’s first and only patented neuroscience clinically proven to reduce stress and improve sleep quality without the use of drugs. NuCalm was originally created to treat symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), targeting impairments and symptoms caused by extreme stress. It is a non-invasive and effective neurotechnology that uses a combination of a proprietary bio-signaling processing disc, patented neuro-acoustic software, and a light-blocking eye mask.

Basically, while undergoing NuCalm, you sit in a comfortable chair while wearing noise-reduction headphones, a light-blocking eye mask, and listening to patented NuCalm music to promote healing. By patented music, we mean music that has been formulated with one gigabyte of mathematics to create a very specific sound pattern that influences your brain waves. Nucalm may seem simple, but the technology is not.

NuCalm technology guides Gamma and Beta brain waves into the slower Alpha and Theta waves that help to evoke a deep meditative state and balance the nervous system.

So, what does this mean? Well, your brain has five types of brain waves that control your state of mind- Alpha, Beta, Delta, Theta, and Gamma. Beta and Gamma waves are employed during times of peak productivity and are important for executive functioning and processing. However, too much time spent in Beta and Gamma brain wave states is associated with irritability, fatigue, anxiety, stress, headaches, and insomnia. If you’re frequently stressed or anxious, it is likely that your brain is employing too many Gamma and Beta waves.

On the other hand, Alpha and Theta waves are associated with calmness, relaxation, and deep sleep. Turning Beta and Gamma waves into alpha and theta waves will work to lower cortisol levels, decrease the stress response, and increase the body’s ability to recover from stress.

How does NuCalm actually work?

As touched on above, the NuCalm system consists of three components:

  • Light-blocking eye mask → The eye-blocking mask helps to eliminate visual stimuli and maintain a deep state of relaxation. Light blocking also helps to evoke alpha brain wave activity.

  • Patented neuro-acoustic software → This software is the technology behind the music played during a NuCalm session. This music will allow the brain to transition into a deep meditative state easily and quickly, which many of us find difficult to achieve. This will also help to decrease brain fog, anxiety, improve focus and mental clarity, and improve sleep.

  • A proprietary bio-signaling processing disc → This disc will be placed on the inner wrist and delivers signals to the brain that mimic the neurotransmitter GABA. GABA is the neurotransmitter that helps to slow the excitatory neurotransmitters that are associated with anxiety, like adrenaline and glutamate. The disc can be worn after the session throughout the rest of the day to maximize its effects.

Together, these three elements will work to directly influence the autonomic and central nervous systems. The non-invasive and effective neurotechnology brings the body into the parasympathetic state, balancing the autonomic nervous system. NuCalm directly affects the HPA axis in the brain to interrupt acute stress and relax the body.

Beyond eliminating acute stress, NuCalm will also resolve chronic stress and help to build stress resilience. NuCalm’s technology has been reliably used in over 2 million clinical procedures, proving its effectiveness in helping people manage their stress and improve their overall well-being.

To get the maximum benefits of NuCalm, it’s best to use it daily or as many days as possible for the first 14 days. This is applied psycho-neurobiology and not magic. And, unfortunately, it takes time and consistency to repair, restore, and rebalance the damage caused by years of stress.

The Benefits of NuCalm:

NuCalm directly targets the production of theta waves in the brain. Theta waves are associated with deep, healing sleep. Thus, inducing Theta waves in your brain means you’ll get the same benefits as deep and reparative sleep, these advantages include:

  • The detoxification of toxins throughout the body

  • Lower stress levels

  • Repair to damaged cells

  • Mitochondrial restoration

  • Decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression

  • A strengthened immune system

  • Improved circulation

  • Decreased blood pressure

  • Lowered heart rate

A key benefit of NuCalm is the restoration of mitochondria, which create the energy necessary for our body and brain to work optimally. Only 20 minutes of NuCalm is equivalent to the healing powers of 2 hours of restorative, healing sleep. After your NuCalm session, you’ll emerge feeling energized, centered, relaxed, and ready to tackle the day. You’re also likely to notice improvements in sleep patterns after the first session!

Still doubting NuCalm?

If you’re doubting that NuCalm actually works, we don’t blame you- it sounds too good to be true! But in actuality, NuCalm has been used for over 20 years by the military, high-performing athletes, and executives. Advances in technology have finally made it available to everyone, regardless of status.

Moreover, multiple studies have confirmed the many benefits of NuCalm. Some of the studies for further reading include:

  • A study in the Journal of Behavioral and Brain Science found that NuCalm offers relief to symptoms of anxiety, stress, and depression.

  • One study found that NuCalm can help to enhance pain control and anxiety management to improve patient tolerance of rhinologic procedures.

  • This study found that using NuCalm resulted in a drastic reduction of symptoms in cases of depression, anxiety, and stress.

  • Several studies have suggested that NuCalm can be used in dental practices to help patients overcome severe dental stress and phobias.

  • Nucalm was awarded a patent in 2015 as the first system for balancing and maintaining the health of the human autonomic nervous system.

Stress is an inevitable part of life and can take a serious toll on physical and mental health, especially today with our uncertain economy, threats of war, civil unrest, and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Surveys show that US adults expect to be MORE stressed in 2023 than in 2022.

Fortunately, we now have an answer. NuCalm is an advanced technology that offers a way to reduce stress and improve overall well-being. NuCalm will guide you into a deep meditative state- balancing the body’s nervous system and decreasing your stress response while working to improve your focus, mental clarity, and sleep. If you’re looking for a way to manage your stress and improve your overall well-being, NuCalm may be the solution for you.
