The Eye Mask and Blocking Visual Stimuli

The eye mask is an important component to the NuCalm system. It is essential for eliminating external visual stimuli, which allows for a state of deep relaxation and restoration.

When there is too much light or external stimulation, our mind is activated to receive and process that sensory information. This visual interference keeps our brain engaged and can prevent the deeper restorative brainwave states from occurring (this is why you can’t sleep with your eyes open). The eye mask allows for maximum relaxation, equipping the body for the optimal restorative outcomes of the NuCalm system.

NuCalm brings users into Theta brainwaves frequencies which are associated with light REM sleep, dreaming, deep meditation, and deep restoration. The eye mask eliminates any visual stimuli that can prevent this brainwave state from occurring. Visual stimuli can interfere with our ability to get into a fully relaxed state, which greatly reduces our ability to get into the deeper restorative brainwave states that NuCalm induces.

Each component of the NuCalm system is equally important. This scientifically designed system provides these specific components so that you can receive the best experience possible. The eye mask contributes to maintaining relaxation and allows the brain and body to be in the perfect state for rest and repair.

NuCalm Scientific Overview

The human body is adaptable, intelligent and yet, complex. As humans, we feel stress over daily occurrences (i.e. issue at work, speaking with a spouse, helping your child) and find it difficult to accept relaxation. Stress is not our fault! Our bodies are unable to differentiate between physical and psychological stress.

The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) responds to our internal and external cues through stimulation or relaxation. The ANS consists of two divisions: The Sympathetic Response and the Parasympathetic Response.

The sympathetic state (often referred to as fight or flight) is the part of the ANS that unconsciously reacts when we are under physical or mental pressure. The parasympathetic response (often referred to as rest and repair) is a state that allows the body to recover.

NuCalm is a neuroscience-based system designed to get the body into the parasympathetic (rest & repair) state of the ANS. NuCalm is a patented 3-step process that naturally gets your body into a state of maximum relaxation and healing every single time.

The patented 3-step process consists of: wearing an eye mask to eliminate visual stimuli, applying a bio-signal disc to interrupt stress hormones, and listening to nueroacoustic tracks that influence your brainwaves to enter the parasympathetic state.

NuCalm’s patented three-step neuroscience-based system will get you to spend more time in the rest & repair state allowing you to improve sleep, reduce stress and boost recovery.


The human body is adaptable, intelligent and yet, complex. As humans, we feel stress over daily occurrences (i.e. issue at work, speaking with a spouse, helping your child) and find it difficult to accept relaxation. Stress is not our fault! Our bodies are unable to differentiate between physical and psychological stress.

The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is the operating system for regulating bodily functions such as: heart rate, metabolism, digestion, hormone regulation and endocrine function. The ANS responds to our internal and external cues through stimulation or relaxation. For example, when we need to outrun danger, our heart rate is stimulated. When we are clear of this danger, it will relax.

The ANS consists of two divisions: the Sympathetic Response and the Parasympathetic Response. The sympathetic state (often referred to as fight or flight) is the part of the ANS that unconsciously reacts when we are under physical or mental pressure. The parasympathetic response (often referred to as rest and repair) is a state that allows the body to recover.

When our body is in the parasympathetic (rest and repair) state, this is when our immune system goes to work and our muscles and joints can start to recover. It is the optimal state of restoration.

On the contrary, our sympathetic response (fight or flight) is unconsciously initiated, when we are faced with stress and uncertainty. Stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol flood the body to boost its alertness. This is the optimal state to combat danger.

The benefits of being in the rest & repair state have been well known to scientists, doctors and practitioners of mediation.

But here’s something to think about: How can the average person tell when they are in one ANS state vs. the other?

The amount of time a person spends in fight & flight versus rest & repair is measured through Heart Rate Variability (HRV) measurement.

In terms of evolution, the ANS has yet to catch up with the modern world. A survival response that was once vital and used only for a physical stressor, fight or flight is now ignited for our everyday psychological mental stress. This is why most people’s HRV measurement shows that their body spends way too much time in fight & flight mode and not enough in the rest & repair state.

Our new age lifestyle has evolved faster than our body.

So we propose a solution!

 

NuCalm is a neuroscience-based system designed to get the body into the parasympathetic (rest & repair) state of the ANS. NuCalm is a patented 3-step process that naturally gets your body into a state of maximum relaxation and healing every single time. This neuroscience-based drug-free approach accomplishes this through effortlessly getting you into the brainwave patterns of relaxation, thoughtfulness, and healing.

NuCalm moves the HRV measurement in the direction of rest & repair every time.

Step one of the NuCalm system is to eliminate visual stimuli; this is done by using a light-blocking eye mask. This step is important for maintaining relaxation and allowing the brain and body to be in perfect state for rest and repair.

Step two is to interrupt stress related hormones prevalent in the body via the NuCalm bio-signal disc. The NuCalm disc emits frequencies that are identical to a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the body) called Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA).

When the NuCalm disc is placed on the inside of your left wrist, signals are sent to the Vagus Nerve (which works to control parasympathetic response) to the brain. This tells the brain to release GABA to interrupt adrenaline and other stress hormones. This allows the body to slow down.

The final step of the NuCalm system is to get your brain into a state of deep relaxation which is vital for repair. This is done by coordinating your brainwave frequencies.

There are 5 types of brainwave frequencies:

Gamma is the highest brainwave frequency (25-100Hz) and is associated with peak focus (also known as “being in the zone”).

Beta brain waves occur between 12.5-30Hz and are correlated with cognitive tasks; these brainwaves are present during most of our day.

Alpha brainwaves (7.5-12.5Hz) are associated with relaxation and visualization.

Theta brainwaves (4-7Hz) are associated with meditation and memory.

Delta is the lowest brainwave frequency (0.5-4HZ) and is the state of detached awareness and sleep.

NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks bring brainwaves into the frequency range from Alpha to deep Theta. These frequencies are associated with relaxation, greater awareness, intuition and provide a calming alertness. Studies have found that this is also the same state as transcendental meditation.

NuCalm uses neurophysic-designed sounds to influence brainwave patterns. NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks are a collaboration of multiple science-based techniques; one which includes binaural beats. Since 1893, binaural beats work by delivering multiple musical tones at slightly different frequencies to each ear. The brain then oscillates (processes) these tones to a singular tone or frequency. These tones mimic the frequency levels of brainwaves and influences the brain into the desired brainwave pattern.

NuCalm is the next generation of binaural beats. Traditional binaural beat music is linear and predictable; NuCalm tracks are scientifically designed to keep your brain engaged!

The NuCalm tracks use complex nonlinear structures of sound unpredictable to the brain. This keeps the brain engaged, allowing you to get reliable results every time you use NuCalm.

NuCalm is based on 15+ years of scientific research. NuCalm has helped people suffering from traumatic situations, severe depression/anxiety and has improved stage 4 cancer patients’ sleep. Regardless of the condition, NuCalm can help you.

NuCalm’s patented three-step neuroscience-based system will get you to spend more time in the rest & repair state allowing you to improve sleep, reduce stress and boost recovery.

Modern life is challenging, but it doesn’t have to be stressful.

With NuCalm, stress is a choice.

GABA and NuCalm

The world asks more from us each day, and in result, we tend to carry around low levels of background stress. When we are being constantly flooded with stressful thoughts of work and life, our stress hormones (adrenaline and cortisol) are actively at work. If these hormones are continuously flooding the body, our system fails to fully switch over to the rest and repair state. This is because our bodies think we are still in danger. NuCalm uses an innovative and all-natural drug-free approach to disarm this stress response.

NuCalm’s all-natural drug-free bio-signal disc activates a naturally occurring neurotransmitter in your brain called Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA naturally reduces the activity in the brain by interrupting any adrenaline in your system. When the NuCalm bio-signal disc is placed on the inside of your left wrist, at a bundle of nerves referred to as the Pericardium-6 acupuncture point, the disc sends specific frequencies to the brain. These natural frequencies tell the body to release our calming neurotransmitter GABA.

The NuCalm system equips you to be able to handle the stresses of everyday life. NuCalm is an all-natural solution for alleviating stress and allowing your body the optimal environment for rest and repair.

GABA

The world asks more from us each day, and in result, we tend to carry around low levels of background stress. Even when we aren’t presently dealing with the stressors of our life, we still tend to ruminate on them. This low-level stress prevents us from being able to fully relax and get into a calm and restorative state. NuCalm uses an all-natural approach to interrupt this background stress and gets your mind and body into a calming state best for healing your body and relaxing your mind.

During times of physical or mental tension, our sympathetic “fight or flight” response is activated. This activation releases stress hormones (adrenaline and cortisol) via the adrenal glands. Once they start to flood our system, our heartrate and blood pressure increase. These hormones help your body spring into action during times of stress. Appropriate adrenaline and cortisol release will save your life, but in excess, can have damaging effects. Symptoms of excessive stress include anxiety, panic attacks, and fear. Overtime overactive adrenals will harm you with exhaustion, poor sleep, poor recovery, lowered HRV, a compromised immune system and can increase your risk for diseases. Our bodies are rarely in a calm state long enough to do the deep restorative work to keep us well and thriving.

When we are being constantly flooded with stressful thoughts of work and life, our stress hormones are actively at work. If these hormones are continuously flooding the body, our system fails to fully switch over to the rest and repair state. This is because our bodies think we are still in danger. NuCalm uses an innovative and all-natural drug-free approach to disarm this stress response. NuCalm allows us to temporarily interrupt adrenaline and cortisol and get into the optimal state of calm and relaxation that’s needed for restoration.

NuCalm’s all-natural drug-free bio-signal disc activates a naturally occurring neurotransmitter in your brain called Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA naturally reduces the activity in the brain by interrupting any adrenaline in your system. The result of this interruption helps to calm the brain and ultimately allows for restoration to take place.

Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that carry signals from nerve cells to target cells found in glands, muscles, or other nerves. Different neurotransmitters can affect an array of physical and psychological functions including sleep cycles, heart rate, mood, and fear. GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter as it inhibits certain signals from moving forward. GABA signals the brain to slow down cellular actions that are triggered by responses to stress. This in turn stops the production of adrenaline and cortisol, and essentially, reduces stress.

The NuCalm system interrupts these stress hormones using electromagnetic frequencies. When the NuCalm bio-signal disc is placed on the inside of your left wrist, at a bundle of nerves referred to as the Pericardium-6 acupuncture point, the disc sends specific frequencies to the brain. These natural frequencies tell the body to release our calming neurotransmitter GABA which interrupts adrenaline and the other stress hormones. When we are no longer being bombarded by stress hormones, we get into a calming state which allows for multiple therapeutic outcomes. Our body’s parasympathetic “rest and repair” system is then able to get to work. Stopping the cascade of stress hormones is essential for preparing the body and mind for the restoration that it needs.

The NuCalm system equips you to be able to handle the stresses of everyday life. NuCalm naturally disarms your body’s stress response to help you achieve parasympathetic nervous system dominance. NuCalm helps reduce stress, promote recovery and generate calm awareness by working at the source of stress. NuCalm is an all-natural solution for alleviating stress and allowing your body the optimal environment for rest and repair.

NuCalm’s Neuroacoustic Tracks

Learn how NuCalm uses physics and music to guide your brain into a state of relaxation, greater awareness, and intuition.

NuCalm invented the world’s most sophisticated neuroacoustic tracks to synchronize brainwave patterns to combat stress and anxiety in the brain.

NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks are a collaboration of multiple science-based techniques which include binaural beats and nonlinear physics. NuCalm uses neurophysic-designed sounds to influence brainwave patterns into the frequency range from Alpha to deep Theta. These frequencies are associated with relaxation, greater awareness, intuition and provide a calming sensation.

NuCalm is the next generation of binaural beats. Traditional binaural beat music is linear and predictable; NuCalm tracks are scientifically designed to keep your brain engaged! The NuCalm tracks also incorporate complex and nonlinear sound structures that create an unpredictable experience for the brain. This helps to keep the brain engaged, allowing you to reliably fall into Alpha or Theta brainwave rhythms every time you use NuCalm.

The advanced physics in the neuroacoustic software is assembled with a beautiful array of music made up of ancient instruments, new age sounds, and classical naturescapes. Choose one of our outcome based paths – Recharge, Reboot, or Rescue – to experience the power of NuCalm’s audio for yourself and suspend your mind and body into a state of restoration, recovery, and heightened awareness.

Keep your brain engaged with NuCalm’s Neuroacoustic Tracks and get reliable results every time you listen!


NuCalm invented the world’s most sophisticated neuroacoustic tracks to synchronize brainwave patterns to combat stress and anxiety in the brain. The physics used in the NuCalm tracks guide the brain down to the restorative zones of Alpha and Theta which allow for deep relaxation and recovery.NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks slow brain waves into the frequency range from Alpha (~8-12Hz) to deep Theta (~4-8Hz). These frequencies are associated with relaxation, greater awareness,and intuition, and provide a calming sensation. Studies have found that these frequencies are the same as those prevalent in transcendental meditation.

NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks are a collaboration of multiple science-based techniques; the first of which includes binaural beats and the second of which involves nonlinear physics. Binaural beats work by delivering tones at slightly different frequencies to each ear. The brain then processes these tones as a singular tone with a resultant frequency (the difference between the original two frequencies). When presented repeatedly, your brain will start to mimic the resultant frequency and can subsequently be shifted into a desired brainwave pattern. This is how NuCalm’s tracks can slow the brain into an Alpha or Theta frequency range.

Here’s an example:
Human ears cannot hear sounds delivered under 20Hz. To create an auditory response at a frequency range between 4-12Hz (from Theta to Alpha), 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 then meet in the sound-processing center of the brain, where they will transform and result in a singular frequency of a 5Hz (ex. 255 – 250 = 5Hz).

NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks are more than binaural beats and are the next generation of brainwave entrainment. Traditional binaural beat music is linear and predictable – it may be effective once or twice but once your brain understands the pattern it will disengage. NuCalm tracks, on the other hand, are scientifically designed to keep your brain engaged for the first, second, and umpteenth use! The NuCalm tracks incorporate complex and nonlinear sound structures that create an unpredictable experience for the brain. The novelty and complexity of the sounds and tracks keep the brain engaged, allowing you to reliably fall into Alpha or Theta brainwave rhythms every time you use NuCalm.

The advanced physics in the neuroacoustic tracks are assembled with a beautiful array of music made up of ancient instruments, new age sounds, and classical naturescapes. Choose one of our outcome based paths – Recharge, Reboot, or Rescue – to experience the power of NuCalm’s audio for yourself and suspend your mind and body into a state of restoration, recovery, and heightened awareness.

NuCalm’s Biosignal Processing Disc

The NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc is the first step to deep relaxation and restoration.

NuCalm is patented neuroscience technology, clinically proven to lower stress and improve sleep quality … without drugs.

The NuCalm bio-signaling disc effortlessly flips the switch from stressed and anxious to powerfully relaxed within minutes. When stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline are flooding the system, the body is resistant to change. The NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc is the first step to transitioning the body from stressed and anxious to relaxed and at peace. Think of the disc as the catalyst for the NuCalm relaxation process.

The NuCalm disc works by signaling the body to emit a naturally occurring neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the body) called Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA). GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that counteracts the effects of cortisol and adrenaline, thus slowing and relaxing the brain.

With the help of NuCalm’s bio-signaling disc, we can interrupt adrenaline and other stress hormones and allow the body to slow down and transition into the restorative parasympathetic state. The NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc, in partnership with NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks, efficiently slows brain waves into the deeply relaxed range where restoration and recovery can occur.


The Need for the NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc
When stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline are flooding the system, the body is resistant to change. Therefore, in such a state, the body is less likely to respond to NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks and less able to transition the body into the ‘rest and repair’ state. The NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc is the first step to transitioning the body from stressed and anxious to relaxed and at peace. Think of the disc as the catalyst for the NuCalm relaxation process.

The NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc tells the body to release our body’s own naturally occurring neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the body) called Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA). GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that counteracts the effects of cortisol and adrenaline, thus slowing and relaxing the brain. Unlike oral or topical GABA supplements that may have difficulty crossing the blood-brain-barrier and eliciting change in the brain’s GABA levels, the NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc is scientifically designed to directly stimulate the production, release, and absorption of GABA through biosignals alone.

The Pathway of the NuCalm Biosignal
Every element and molecule of the human body holds electromagnetic (EM) frequencies which provide one manner in which cells can communicate. Each NuCalm disc holds the EM frequency patterns of GABA and its precursors to deliver a pure biological signal to your body. When the NuCalm disc is placed on the inside of your left wrist, at the Pericardium-6 acupressure point, the body’s electrical field at this point is easily able to activate the disc and receive its frequencies. The disc’s biosignal is sent to the Pericardium (the membrane enclosing the heart) where autonomic nerve cells transmit the message to the brain. The brain then increases our body’s natural GABA and activates the parasympathetic nervous system.

This incredibly simple, yet advanced process interrupts adrenaline and other stress hormones and allows the body to slow down. The NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc, in partnership with NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks, efficiently slows brain waves into the deeply relaxed range where restoration and recovery can occur.

NuCalm & Your Autonomic Nervous System

Learn how the Autonomic Nervous System impacts our health and wellbeing.

NuCalm is patented neuroscience technology that balances the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) which enables you to relax your brain and body; because let’s face it, life is pretty stressful.

The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is a complex network within our bodies that impacts nearly every part of our physiology and consists of two branches: The Sympathetic Response and the Parasympathetic Response. When we are under physical or mental stress, the sympathetic state is activated (fight or flight); and when we are relaxed, the parasympathetic state is activated (rest and repair). Depending on our internal or external situation, when a person senses any type of stress or relaxation, our ANS responds accordingly.

The world asks more from us each day; stress is unavoidable. Unfortunately, our ANS cannot differentiate between physical and psychological stress; we biologically respond the same way by initiating our sympathetic “fight or flight” response. When our bodies and minds are too preoccupied with “danger,” we aren’t worried about doing all the restorative bodily tasks and functions that keep us well. We can only be in one state of the ANS at a time.

We are in dire need to reestablish balance in our ANS. A balanced ANS will lead to better sleep, lower blood pressure, and strengthened immune system. NuCalm can help improve the tone of your parasympathetic nervous system which enables you to maintain a better balance in life. It allows for proper rest and repair that leads to better sleep, improved HRV, lower blood pressure, and strengthened immune system. With its patented 3-step process, NuCalm can help improve the tone of your parasympathetic “rest and repair” nervous system, thus enabling you to bounce back and maintain a better balance long term.

NuCalm can help you to respond to stressful situations rather than react.


NuCalm is patented neuroscience technology that balances the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) which enables you to relax your brain and body; because let’s face it, life is pretty stressful.

What is the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)?
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is a complex network within our bodies that works tirelessly behind the scenes to keep us alive. It impacts nearly every part of our physiology: our heart rate, sleep, digestion, mental capacity, and ability to heal. It consists of two branches: the Sympathetic Response and the Parasympathetic Response. When we are in a stressed state, whether physical or mental, we unconsciously activate the sympathetic state (often referred to as our ‘fight-or-flight’ response). The opposite state, the parasympathetic state (often referred to as our ‘rest and repair’ or ‘rest and digest’ response) allows the body to recover. Whether we are under physical stress, like being chased by someone, or mental stress, such as having a big work presentation, or are in a relaxed and secure state, our ANS responds accordingly.

“Fight or Flight” vs “Rest and Repair”
When we sense a physical or mental stressor, our ANS responds in the same way by initiating our sympathetic “fight-or-flight” response. It inhibits all non-essential systems such as digestion and higher level decision making, and the body gets flooded with adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones increase our alertness, heart rate, respiratory rate, and dilate our pupils. Appropriate adrenaline and cortisol release will save your life, but in excess, overactive adrenals will slowly harm you with exhaustion, poor sleep, poor recovery, a compromised immune system, and an increased risk for diseases.

On the contrary, when we are in a safe and secure physical and mental state, the ANS activates the parasympathetic system, which is our body’s main driver for optimal restoration. It allows for the immune system to do its job, and our muscles and joints can start to recover. If you are not spending enough time in this “rest-and-repair” state, your body is depleting all its resources without replenishing them. You cannot be in a heightened sympathetic state and relaxed parasympathetic state at the same time.

How NuCalm Helps Create Balance in the ANS
The world asks more from us each day; stress is unavoidable and finding the time to get proper rest is nearly impossible. Stress has many interpretations, but in this context we are sympathetically “fight or flight” dominant and we are living in an intensified state. This causes our bodies and minds to become too preoccupied with “danger” to care about the restorative tasks that keep us well. We, therefore, are in dire need to reestablish balance in our ANS. Through the combination of reducing sensory stimulation, interrupting stress hormones and the use of scientifically-designed non-linear neuroacoustic tracks, NuCalm reliably and seamlessly puts you into the restorative parasympathetic state, thereby balancing your ANS.

NuCalm’s patented 3-step process naturally disarms your body’s stress response and helps you reach a therapeutic state that allows for new cell turnover, joint healing, digestion, and optimal recovery. NuCalm brings you out of the heightened and anxiety-prone sympathetic state and allows for the calming and restorative parasympathetic state to dominate. A NuCalm session helps to balance the ANS which gives you the proper rest and repair so that you can respond better to the demands of everyday life.

A balanced ANS will lead to better sleep, lower blood pressure, and strengthened immune system. NuCalm helps improve the tone of your parasympathetic nervous system, thus enabling you to maintain a better balance in life.

Brainwaves and NuCalm

Brainwaves are synchronized electrical impulses that influence our thoughts, emotions and behaviors; each brainwave frequency is associated with a certain state of being.  Brainwaves are produced by neurons in the brain.  Neurons are specialized cells that communicate with each other through synchronized electrical impulses.

NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks use nonlinear neurophysic-designed sounds to influence brainwave frequencies into the restorative states of Alpha and Theta brainwaves. These brainwave frequencies allow the perfect state for mind/body integration and deep restoration.

NuCalm processes brainwave patterns into the Alpha and Theta frequency ranges. This provides the perfect environment for learning, memory consolidation and immune support. Without enough time in these therapeutic brainwaves, we can’t tap into this restorative parasympathetic (rest and repair) state. Alpha and Theta brainwave states provide the ideal recovery zone of the body and spending enough time in this state every day is essential to our health.

Let NuCalm get you into a restorative state so that you can feel calm, heal your body, and conquer your day!


NuCalm uses scientifically designed neuroacoustic tracks to get brainwave frequencies into restorative patterns in which multiple therapeutic effects can take place.

Brainwaves are synchronized electrical impulses that influence our thoughts, emotions and behaviors. Each brainwave frequency is associated with a certain state of being. NuCalm’s tracks use nonlinear neurophysic-designed sounds to influence brainwave frequencies into the restorative states of Alpha and Theta brainwaves. These brainwave frequencies allow the perfect state for mind/body integration and deep restoration.

German psychiatrist, Hans Berger discovered brainwaves 90 years ago. Although Berger at first had only primitive methods of recording (two wires placed under the scalp), he was nonetheless able to detect the rhythmic pattern of brain activity (aka brainwaves).

Brainwaves are produced by neurons in the brain. Neurons are specialized cells that communicate with each other through synchronized electrical impulses. Although it was known for a long time as “Berger’s wave,” the first brainwave Berger named was the Alpha wave. Berger detected that people generated these Alpha waves when resting with their eyes closed but when they opened their eyes, they immediately jumped to higher frequency brain activity: “beta waves.” The science of brainwaves has come a long way; we now know that each frequency level is associated with a state of being.

Each brainwave frequency is a set of electrical impulses occurring at various frequencies – some are fast, and some are slow. These frequency patterns are measured in hertz (Hz); the lower the “wave” the lower the hertz.

Occurring at 25-100Hz, Gamma brainwave frequency patterns are the fastest. They produce high levels of cognitive functioning and are often referred to as “being in the zone.”

Beta brainwaves are the second highest brainwave state and occur between 12.5-30Hz. They are correlated with cognitive tasks. Most of our normal waking consciousness is spent in Beta brainwaves. When we are active in conversation, completing work tasks, and engaged in decision making we are generating Beta waves. Beta brainwaves can also turn into feelings of anxiety and restlessness. Beta is sometimes referred to as the “nagging inner critic,” so it comes as no surprise as to why a majority of adults are stressed out.

Alpha brainwaves are slower and occur at 7.5-12.5Hz. They are associated with relaxation, visualization, and provide a “calming awareness.” Alpha is a non-aroused state and dominant during quietly flowing thoughts. When we are walking in the garden, resting or taking the time to meditate, we are in Alpha. Alpha is the optimal state for being “present.”

At an even lower frequency of 4-7H, Theta brainwaves are associated with light REM sleep, dreaming, deep meditation, deep restoration, and the replenishment of hormone reservoirs. Theta is sometimes referred to as a “twilight state” and is often experienced when we daydream and moments before falling asleep.

Delta is the lowest brainwave frequency (0.5-4HZ) and is the state of detached awareness. This brainwave activity is associated with deep dreamless sleep.

NuCalm processes brainwave patterns into the Alpha and Theta frequency ranges. This provides the perfect environment for learning, memory consolidation, mental coordination, immune support and the replenishment of hormone reservoirs. Without enough time in these therapeutic brainwaves, we can’t tap into this restorative parasympathetic (rest and repair) state. Alpha and Theta brainwave states provide the ideal recovery zone of the body and spending enough time in this state every day is essential to our health.

NuCalm works by using scientifically designed non-linear neuroacoustic tracks to take the mind into restorative brainwave patterns. NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks work by using multiple science-based techniques which include binaural beats and natural occurring sounds that have resonant frequencies. Binaural beats work by delivering multiple musical tones at slightly different frequencies to each ear. The brain then processes these tones to become a singular tone or frequency. These scientifically designed tones mimic the frequency levels of brainwaves, which in turn influences the brain into the desired brainwave pattern. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4428073/

Here’s an example:
Human ears cannot hear sounds delivered under 20Hz. To create an auditory response at a frequency range between 4-12Hz (from Theta to Alpha), 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 then meet in the sound-processing center of the brain where they will transform and result in a singular frequency of a 5Hz (ex. 255 – 250 = 5Hz).

Unlike traditional binaural beat music that is linear and predictable, the NuCalm tracks use a complex nonlinear structure of sound. This makes the music infinitely more dynamic and keeps the brain engaged, giving you reliable results every time you use NuCalm.

Our modern life causes us to spend too much time in a highly alert and aroused state. Being in a heightened state depletes the body and does not allow for proper rest and repair. Over-stimulation can morph into anxiety disorders, hyper-vigilance, and sleep disorders.

NuCalm puts a stop to the anxiety-prone Beta brainwaves and allows for optimal mind and body recovery. Let NuCalm get you into a restorative state so that you can feel calm, heal your body, and conquer your day!
