NuCalm – Now Anyone Can Meditate at the Dentist!
Drs. Newman and Silver are very proud to announce that Gramercy Dental Studio is the first dental office in New York City to use this all natural relaxation technology.
NuCalm® is a proprietary clinical system that calms the brain within minutes by bringing alert beta brain wave function down to the alpha/theta ranges (deep relaxation). The system is predicated on neuropsychobiology and neurobioinformatics and was developed over eight years by leading neuroscientists. NuCalm is unique because it creates deep relaxation without using narcotics or controlled substances, causes no significant side effects, and requires no recuperative time or supervision.
NuCalm organically entrains brainwaves to a frequency that promotes relaxation and calm. Beta brain waves (13 Hz-30 Hz per second) are associated with day-to-day wakefulness - mental activity consisting of cognitive, sensory, and motor activities. High beta brain waves (23 Hz-40 Hz per second) are associated with fear and anxiety. NuCalm brings the patient's brain waves from beta or high beta to the alpha and theta ranges (4 Hz-12 Hz per second). Alpha brain waves are considered the first stage of sleep and are typically associated with relaxation and peacefulness during deep meditation and biofeedback. A person with brain waves in the alpha range is physically unable to be anxious. The patented NuCalm system leverages the synergistic benefits of four sensory applications:
The NuCalm proprietary orthomolecular formula has been developed over several years to maximize the body’s natural relaxation response with NuCalm. The proprietary formula is only available in the NuCalm system and includes structured, nutrient-sourced building blocks that rapidly convert to powerful messengers that interrupt the stress response.
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES)
The Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation device produces low amounts of electrical current (close to the cell’s own electrical values - microcurrent is less than 1/10,000th of an Amp). This easy-to-use device has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Research over the past 50 years indicates an increase in metabolism of neurotransmitters as evidenced by an increase in the metabolites of the neurochemicals.
NuCalm Neuroacoustic Software
The proprietary neuroacoustic software provided in the NuCalm system uses Frequency-Following-Response (FFR) that initiates a change in brain waves. According to extensive research, a scientifically validated neurophysiologic response is initiated when an auditory pacing signal is presented to the brain. Solace Lifesciences has developed significant advances in the design of binaural and monaural beat sound acoustics, which are overlaid with classical music and presented through a stereo headset. The neuroacoustic brain entrainment software moves the patient’s brain waves from the high beta brain wave frequencies associated with anxiety (23 Hz-40 Hz) to brain wave frequency patterns of alpha and theta (4 Hz-12 Hz). These brain waves are associated with deep relaxation and calmness.
NuCalm Light-Blocking Eye Mask
NuCalm's light-blocking eye masks are used to block light from the optic nerve, resulting in up to a 30% increase in alpha wave production in the occipital cortex of the brain. This helps maintain deep relaxation. Other options include wearing sunglasses or just closing your eyes.
Some reviews by patients who have tried NuCalm;
“Loved it! It really helped me get through a procedure I was nervous about.” – Diana
“I can’t believe that was 90 minutes – it only felt like it was 30 minutes, tops!” – Craig
“I can’t really explain it. I just feel really good. Thank you.” – Jon
“NuCalm was a very relaxing, therapeutic experience. I have chronic neck and shoulder pain. After NuCalm, I had no pain, which is remarkable. Can I have this done every month?” – Judy
“The NuCalm procedure is excellent. It is really relaxing. The music is great. It takes the mind off the procedure that is going on.” – Clementine
“I feel ridiculously relaxed!” – Monica
