NuCalm is an FDA-approved clinical system designed to help your mind and body relax naturally within just minutes.

Nucalm is a cutting-edge sleep kit that utilizes the latest advancements in relaxation technology.

NuCalm launched in 2009 as the world’s first-and-only neuroscience technology aimed to lower stress and improve sleep. By 2015, the NuCalm therapy system was awarded a patent for “systems and methods for balancing and maintaining the health of the human autonomic nervous system.”

Designed by neuroscientist Dr. Blake Holloway as a way to treat patients with post-traumatic stress disorder, NuCalm works by using biochemistry, physics and neurophysiology to rapidly and reliably relax brain and body functions. No side effects have been reported and no recuperative time or supervision is required.

The science

The NuCalm system calms the brain by bringing alert beta brain wave function down to the alpha/theta ranges. Beta brain waves are associated with everyday activity. When they are high, they are associated with fear, stress and anxiety. 

In order to achieve sleep, your brain needs alpha brain waves to relax. They are considered the first stage of sleep and are associated with relaxation and peacefulness found during deep meditation.

NuCalm brings the patient’s brain waves from beta, or high beta, down to the alpha and theta ranges, guiding the patient’s mind and body into a state of deep relaxation.

how to use NuCalm

NuCalm therapy is based around three key components that work in synergy to bring you into a deep state of calm. It only takes a few minutes to administer these steps. Once started, the patient begins to feel relaxed almost immediately.


Biosignal processing discs signal the body to initiate the NuCalm relaxation process. It does this by directly stimulating the production, release, and absorption of the neurotransmitter GABA, a naturally occurring chemical messenger that counteracts the damaging effect of the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol.

When placed on the inside of the left wrist, at the pericardium 6 acupuncture point, the NuCalm disc is activated by the body’s own electromagnetic field (one of several pathways by which cells communicate), and is able to receive its frequencies. It slows brain waves into a deeply relaxed state where rejuvenation and recovery can occur.

Light-blocking eye masks are part of the NuCalm therapy system. These masks help the patient avoid visual stimuli and maintain their relaxation state.

The combination of these three components gives you a fully immersive experience, erasing your stress or anxiety and helping you achieve a deeper level of calm.


While NuCalm found an immediate market with dental patients who suffered from severe anxiety during appointments, the system is also being used by professional sports teams, including the Golden State Warriors, as well as a number of experts in the fields of oncology, psychotherapy, plastic surgery, addictive disease, medical weight loss and cranial sacral therapy.

As of 2021, there have been over 2 million dental surgeries where NuCalm has been used without a reported adverse reaction. Thousands of dentists around the world have replaced IV sedation, oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide use with the NuCalm system.

We look forward to meeting you.
