Best Practices for Self-Administration

Here are some pointers to ensure proper self-administration of NuCalm:

  • Find a comfortable place to rest for your NuCalm session
  • Use a blanket to stay warm – you may feel a chill as you relax
  • Find the Pericardium 6 acupressure point on your left wrist
    • Place the NuCalm Disc on this point (left arm only)
  • Learn more about the NuCalm software tracks to determine which is best for your session

Typical NuCalm sessions last between 20-60 minutes, based upon your current level of stress and sleep quality – the higher the stress, the longer the NuCalm session. You will experience shorter sessions with consistent use. We suggest you NuCalm daily to improve sleep quality and increase stress resilience.

The end of your NuCalm session is indicated by a feeling of restlessness, as you will simply “wake up,” the same way you would after a nap. You will feel relaxed and refreshed. Typically you will not fall asleep during NuCalm; you should simply just relax. If you are under increased stress or experiencing poor sleep quality, you may fall asleep during your session, but it is not the ultimate goal. The goal is to reach a natural ‘meditative’ state, where your mind and body achieve optimal healing.

  • A morning session, when you wake up
  • In the afternoon, when you’re feeling sluggish
  • Early evening, at least 3-4 hours before bed
  • At night, as a sleep aid, if you have difficulty sleeping

It is completely normal for your mind to wander and continue having many thoughts. The end of your NuCalm session is indicated by a feeling of restlessness, as you will simply “wake up,” the same way you would after a nap.
