NuCalm use cases

Athletic Performance

NuCalm can help because it brings the brain and body into a parasympathetic state which helps reduce muscle tension, deepen your breath, and relieve the mind of stress and distractions, equipping you to achieve greater results. We recommend using NuCalm up to 1 hour before exercise/game/competition.

Athletic Recovery

Inflammation, sleep quality, and even your mental resilience can all play a big role in how quickly you can recover. NuCalm brings the body to a deeply relaxed state, allowing you to idle in the optimal healing state of the parasympathetic nervous system. This state allows for quicker muscle recovery and quality sleep to facilitate new muscle memories and can help you to move on from that gameday loss by separating the negative emotion from that memory. It's best to use NuCalm within 1 hour after your exercise/game/competition.

Manage Stress

It’s imperative to your health and happiness to be able to manage stress and not be managed by it. NuCalm gives you the power and control to relax and recharge anywhere, anytime. NuCalm “flips the switch” from high cortisol and adrenaline to deep relaxation and recovery. This allows your body to stop the flood of cortisol and transition away from the stress response and into the rest response. Regular use of any of the NuCalm journeys will help provide balance.


Subconscious revelations are often characteristics of the theta brainwave range, so NuCalm can assist this by easily getting you into the desired Theta brainwave state. The Rescue tracks offer the deepest brainwaves states.


NuCalm grooms the body’s systems during a session so it can properly function and switches you into restorative brainwave states which allow the parasympathetic state to thrive. This allows you to get into the perfect environment for enhanced sleep.

This sleep protocol has helped NuCalm users improve sleep quality and/or get off of sleeping pills:

  • NuCalm Duration: 30 minutes minimum; ideally – to natural endpoint
  • NuCalm Frequency: Five (5) times per week minimum; ideally – daily
  • NuCalm Time of Day: Any time 5 am – 7 pm; ideally – early, mid or late afternoon
  • Optional Night NuCalm: Put on NuCalm at bedtime to help guide your brain in the direction of sleep

Slow Aging

Stress should be your primary target for anti-aging and eliminating it is what NuCalm was designed for. NuCalm kickstarts our parasympathetic response which allows for optimal rest and repair which is necessary for combating chronic stress, inflammation, and disturbed sleep which all tremendously accelerate aging. Regular use of any of the NuCalm journeys will help provide balance.

Weight Loss

When stressed, the body stores visceral fat, making it more uncomfortable to fit into your clothes. Cortisol, one of the hormones associated with chronic stress, can affect levels of ghrelin (the hunger signaling hormone) and leptin (the satiety signaling hormone). NuCalm helps you control cortisol levels and reset the balance between ghrelin and leptin. It also helps you avoid stress-related eating, control your heart rate, and keep a positive attitude that will help you stay healthy. Regular use of any of the NuCalm journeys will help provide balance.

Fight Illness

NuCalm can help accelerate recovery and restoration by helping to balance the body. When it comes to serious illness or disease, we recommend using NuCalm multiple times a day using the ultra restorative Rescue tracks. This will help to put your body into a natural recovery zone.

Reduce Depression & Mood Disorders

First, NuCalm has documented measurable benefits for people with anxiety and depression. When you are feeling anxiety and depression, your body is in a state of sympathetic nervous system dominance. In other words, the part of your involuntary nervous system that prepares your body for its fight-or-flight response. NuCalm can help bring you into calming brainwave patterns and help to harmonize heartbeats, allowing you to get into a calm space. Both Rescue and Reboot are great journeys to use and we recommend going to your natural endpoint.


If you are looking to do meditation with NuCalm - use two headphones - a bone conducting pair and over-ear pair - play meditation (voice only so the music doesn't interfere) on one set and NuCalm on the other. It may be difficult to focus on the guided meditation because brain wanders in theta rhythm and can't always hold a train of thought, but you can certainly try. Otherwise, NuCalming before meditation will allow you to go deeper in subsequent meditation.
