NuCalm is a safe, proven neuroscience technology that quickly relaxes you without using narcotics or controlled substances.
NuCalm naturally brings your body to the pre-sleep states characterized by deep relaxation and idleness. NuCalm leverages biochemistry, neurophysiology, and physics to suspend the mind and body in parasympathetic nervous system dominance – the only state that allows your body to recover, heal, and rebuild.
NuCalm is the world’s first and only patented neuroscience technology clinically proven to lower stress and improve sleep quality – without drugs. NuCalm gives you the power and control to slow down and recharge anywhere, any time.
NuCalm predictably and quickly “flips the switch” from high cortisol and adrenaline to deep relaxation. This allows your body to stop the flood of cortisol and transition away from the stress response, into deep relaxation and restoration.
NuCalm quickly slows your mind and body and activates your brain-heart-lung connection to optimize diaphragmatic breathing, oxygen-rich red blood cell flow, optimal recovery and muscle recovery. With NuCalm, your mind wanders (in Theta brainwave length) and your body idles in its optimal recovery state.
A 20 minutes NuCalm session allows you to go from stressed and out of control, to a state of deep calm and balance. A complete NuCalm session (to your natural endpoint) will allow your body to achieve complete balance of your autonomic nervous system. Your physiology will be optimized and your mind will be clear and focused. Stress will not interfere with your decision making.
NuCalm also provides the neurophysiology and biochemistry necessary for improving sleep and managing circadian rhythm dysfunction. A better night’s sleep will also contribute to better stress management and resiliency. By restoring autonomic nervous system balance, NuCalm helps you kick stress to the curb, while restoring your body’s natural rhythms, allowing you to recover and optimize your biological systems to achieve peak performance.
NuCalm holds the only patent in the world for balancing and maintaining the health of the human autonomic nervous system without drugs
A balanced autonomic nervous system will:
- Increase energy
- Improve mood / emotional state
- Improve sleep quality
- Stimulate digestion
- Decrease stress hormone production (cortisol & adrenaline)
- Lower heart rate
- Slow breathing rate
- Decrease blood pressure
- Increase blood flow / circulation
- Enhance immune function
The NuCalm® Biosignal Processing Disc simplifies the process of activating the parasympathetic nervous system, by tapping into the body’s Pericardium Meridian with particular electromagnetic (EM) frequencies.
Traditional Chinese Medicine explains that Qi (light energy) flows through the body along particular pathways, or Meridians, to maintain health.
Everything in the world as we know it vibrates with a particular pattern, thus living systems produce electromagnetic (EM) frequencies endogenously that differ depending on the level of health or disease.
It is hypothesized that if you can restore the frequencies that travel through the Meridians you can reinstate optimal physiology. Each NuCalm disc holds the EM frequency patterns of GABA and its precursors to deliver a pure biological signal to your body. When placed on the inside of your left wrist, at your Pericardium-6 acupuncture point, the disc sends a signal to the pericardium of your heart to activate local parasympathetic nerve fibers, which then transmit the signal to your brain telling it to increase vagal nerve output and begin the process of slowing down the body.
The disc stops your acute stress response, so the brainwave entrainment with NuCalm’s neuroacoustic software is always reliable and efficient at getting you into theta brainwave range, where restoration and relaxation can take place.
Balancing the Brain’s Neurochemistry
A properly functioning GABAergic system is vital for relaxation, restoration and balance. NuCalm helps reduce stress, promote recovery and generate calm by working at the root causes of the problem – the imbalanced neurochemical and neuroelectrical systems. With NuCalm, the GABAergic system is activated by specific electromagnetic frequencies related to GABA and its precursors that are delivered to the body via the NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc.
The brain’s chemical messengers or neurotransmitters are either excitatory, inhibitory or modulatory. The main excitatory neurotransmitter is glutamate, and its role is to potentiate signals forward and increase neuronal activity. The major inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid), inhibits nerve activity by preventing signals from moving forward, thus calming the brain.
The common neuromodulatory neurotransmitters are either serotonin or dopamine. Serotonin has many important roles within the brain some of which contribute to mood, learning, and memory.
Dopamine is most well-known as the reward or pleasure chemical. Many studies have associated various neurological disorders with either the excess or deficit of a specific neurotransmitter. For example, increased dopamine levels have been found in people with addiction disorders, whereas decreased serotonin levels have been theorized to contribute to depression. Chronic stress is related to an improperly functioning GABAergic system that can no longer control the over-excitation and hyperactivity in the brain. Balance in neurochemical levels is the key to optimal brain health and function.
The science behind NuCalm’s neuroacoustic software is remarkable and complex. Let us try and understand the why and the how behind this exciting neurophysics.
Dr. Blake Holloway, the inventor of NuCalm, spent several years immersed in the intriguing and exotic arena of bio and neurophysics. His objective in inventing NuCalm was to design a software that would have direct physiological outcomes to combat stress and anxiety in the brain.
He believed that focusing on the brain’s electrical activity and finding a way to entrain the brainwaves to a particular frequency, such as alpha or theta, could be a targetable physiological phenomenon that would aid his mission of combating anxiety. He began by researching bio and neurofeedback training, which are therapies that require patients to train, in a reward based manner, their breathing, heart rate or brain electrical patterns to reach the desired therapeutic levels. This type of training was shown to be very effective in lowering heart rate, respiration rate and brainwave frequency, however, required active effort and more time from participants. In search of a more passive way to entrain brainwaves, Holloway researched evoked potentials.
These are spikes in brain electrical activity observed in response to the presentation of a stimulus, whether it be visual or auditory. Multiple stimuli delivered a certain amount of times per second, mimicking the desired brain frequency level, could create evoked potentials in the brain at that same frequency level. For example, Holloway tested the effect of flashing a light 10 times per second (10Hz) and saw that the brain would sync into the alpha rhythm (8-12Hz). This research led him to finally implement auditory evocation to obtain a frequency following response with binaural beats.
To create an auditory evoked response at a frequency range between 4-12Hz (from theta to alpha), it is a little more difficult because human ears cannot receive sounds delivered under 20Hz. This is where the binaural beats come into play. This method involves simultaneously delivering two tones with different frequencies into the left and right ears (ex. 250Hz to right ear, 255Hz to left ear). These sound waves will initially meet in the superior olivary complex, a structure in the brainstem, where they will interfere constructively and create a resultant beat frequency calculated by the difference between the two tones’ frequencies (ex. 255 – 250 = 5Hz beat frequency).
The beat frequency at any level can then be transmitted to and perceived by the auditory cortex of the brain. Repeated presentations of binaural beats will create repetitive auditory evoked potentials which will induce a frequency following response in the brain, meaning multiple neural networks will begin oscillating at that specific beat frequency. This brainwave synchronization has been verified in electroencephalography (EEG = brain electrical activity imaging) studies conducted by Holloway and Solace Life Sciences. This is the applied NuCalm method to entrain the brain to flow from everyday beta brainwaves of consciousness to deeply healing and restorative theta brainwaves. The creative collaboration with music producer Dan Selene adds a further level of complexity to the tracks, integrating music to the neuroacoustic physics to augment the outcome.
How it works?
The first step to all-natural relaxation is blocking out light. Then, the NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc delivers electromagnetic frequencies to the body that biochemically help your brain interrupt adrenaline and cortisol release, by mimicking what naturally occurs in your brain right before you fall sleep. Finally, the “music” – the neuroacoustic software delivers frequencies to your brain that guide you to Theta brain wave lengths, which is the restorative “healing” zone. Combining all three components ensures you will achieve deep relaxation and the therapeutic outcome of autonomic nervous system balance every time you use NuCalm.

NuCalm has the only patent for balancing the autonomic nervous system, every time, without drugs.
Binaural beats were discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. There are thousands of binaural beat applications/products in the marketplace. A search in the App Store alone results in over 150 apps featuring binaural beats. The effect of binaural beats can be profound, but it is not consistent, predictable, and the brain typically develops a tolerance for the pattern after several exposures. They are nice to use when you are relaxed, but if you are actively in a stress response, they are not very useful. The technology is good for guiding brain wave function to a lower beta frequency.
In rare cases, a user may achieve alpha brain wave dominance. If someone is stressed, their brain wave function will be in the high beta range (33-38Hz). The primitive midbrain survival function is very refined and robust (thousands of years of evolution will do that). Binaural beats will not entrain a stressed brain to alpha until the adrenals fatigue and the brain wave function naturally slows down – this could take 15 minutes or two hours depending on the person’s physiology.Now, here is how NuCalm is different. NuCalm uses a binaural signal processing, coupled with a sophisticated catalog of physics and algorithms to quickly, predictably, and consistently slow down high beta brain wave function to alpha/theta zones – every time and on every one. When we say quickly, we mean within three minutes regardless of context or circumstances. NuCalm does not rely on audio entrainment to do all the work. NuCalm uses neurochemistry to neutralize the stress response and then uses the world’s most sophisticated physics entrainment to lock you in.
Essentially, we don’t bring a gun to a knife fight, we bring a tank!!In short, unlike other devices and apps on the market, due to the sophistication of the combined biochemistry and software physics and algorithms, your body can never build a tolerance to NuCalm.
Yes! NuCalm users experience a sense of rest and deep relaxation.
95% of NuCalm users report that they would use it again, and 98% of them say they would recommend it to family and friends. Based on effectiveness data included in the application, the system was awarded a patent – the only one in the world – for “…systems and methods for establishing and maintaining the health and balance of the human autonomic nervous system.” The autonomic nervous system controls body functions you don’t consciously direct, such as breathing, heartbeat, and digestion.
NuCalm feels very much like drifting peacefully off to sleep, though you probably won’t actually fall asleep.
Instead, you’ll hover at the edge of sleep, feeling weightless and having your thoughts free to roam. Often, your mind is still wandering, while your body feels as if it is in deep sleep.
With over a million NuCalm sessions worldwide, there has not been a single reported adverse event – no one has reported a serious negative event related to a NuCalm session. Most people experience positive side effects, such as increased energy, improved sleep quality and an overall reduction in stress.
