NuCalm

NuCalm holds the only patent in the world for balancing and maintaining the health of the human autonomic nervous system without drugs. While NuCalm was originally invented to treat PTSD and addictive disease, almost everyone can benefit from NuCalm. Nucalm includes an eye mask, calming cream, neuroacoustic music and cranial electrotherapy stimulation that work together to biochemically help your brain interrupt the adrenaline and cortisol release, by mimicking what naturally occurs in your brain right before you sleep.

One of the things that sets NuCalm apart from other relaxation techniques is that it’s a science-based approach. NuCalm is designed using neuroscience principles to help disable the body’s anxiety response. Instead, the body enters a state of parasympathetic dominance, which is rejuvenating and restful. It not only helps the body avoid anxiety, it helps the body heal and get ready to work and to learn.

Infrared Sauna with Acoustic Resonance Therapy

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. Infrared saunas have numerous beneficial effects on the brain. Studies have repeatedly proven that even a single session of hyperthermia produces a rapid and powerful antidepressant effect and the benefits continue for at least six weeks. Additionally, it is well documented that regular sauna use lowers levels of cortisone, our body’s main stress hormone. Infrared saunas increase beta-endorphins to help relieve pain, increase norepinephrine levels, and increase deep sleep.

Acoustic Resonance Therapy (A.R.T.) creates an environment for the body to experience the benefits of sound and vibrational healing in an integrative way. Feeling the music we hear brings our body into harmony physically, mentally and emotionally through stimulating our feeling sense. Combining infrared therapy and A.R.T. provides a natural healing environment that can benefit everyone.

Hydromassage Tables help relieve your pain so you can move easier, increase blood circulation to help your body function better, help reduce stress and fatigue so your mind is clearer, and help your mind and body relax so you can feel calm and sleep better.
