Tips For Success
NuCalm is a personal and unique experience, not only for you versus someone else, but also within your own NuCalm sessions. As you use NuCalm more frequently, you will figure out what works best for you – including session length, time of day, track selection, etc. Experiment with the NuCalm software tracks to figure out what works best for you.
With the exception of the 20-min Power Nap, the length of the NuCalm track is irrelevant. For minimum restorative benefits, we recommend a 20 minute session. Your NuCalm session can last as long as you want it to or need it to be.
For maximum restorative benefits, you can go to your natural endpoint – when you become aware of your surroundings and feel ready to get up. This means you have achieved autonomic nervous system balance. The natural endpoint is directly related to your current emotional and physiological health – the greater the imbalance, the longer the session. With regular use, your natural session length will decrease, due to consistent rebalancing.

Relax I & II
These tracks were designed to provide general stress relief, relaxation, and a “reboot.” Use the Relax tracks when you want to feel relaxed, yet focused, energized, and balanced.
Beneath the music, the neuroscience guides your mind and body to an optimal state for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Recovery I, II & III
These tracks were designed to provide deep recovery, and cellular restoration. Originally focused on managing stress related to disease management and cortisol overload, these tracks have become favorites for everyday recovery of mind and body. Use these tracks when you are feeling fatigued and in need of recovery and restoration. After using these tracks you will feel a prolonged sense of inner calm, combined with feeling present in the moment, focused, and filled with positive energy.
Beneath the music, the neuroscience guides your mind and body to an optimal state for recovery.
This track was designed for maximum recovery and restoration. Using the physics and musical compositions of NuCalm Recovery II and III as the foundation, this is the strongest track we offer for recovery and a cellular “reboot.” You will feel yourself go deep into a state of bliss and recovery. After using Deep Recovery, you will feel emotionally and physically whole again; your worries won’t be so worrisome; and your mind will feel at ease, yet able to focus and perform at high levels for hours.
This track will provide significant recovery from a poor night’s sleep, or recovery from simply feeling emotionally, physically, or psychologically worn out.
NuCalm Power Nap I
This software track guides you to your “recovery zone” faster than the other tracks and guides you ‘back up’ in 20 minutes. If you have a limited amount of time for a NuCalm session, this software track will provide the greatest benefits. This is truly meant to be a power nap. To obtain the deep recovery benefits of NuCalm, use the other tracks.
NuCalm Power Nap II
This track, like the Power Nap, guides you down and brings you ‘back up’ in 20 minutes. However, it is deeper and more restorative than the Power Nap I. The vibrational harmonic tones throughout the track give you an experience like a “sound bath” and the ultimate mind massage. Your session will feel longer than 20 minutes and the outcome will leave you feeling deeply restored and grounded, yet focused and ready.
NuCalm 1.0 Relax Tracks (Spa, Piano, Guitar, Strings)
These are our original four tracks. These tracks oscillate you between alpha and theta brainwave length. The software underlying these, as well as the music overlay, is not as sophisticated as the newer Relax and Recovery tracks. The newer tracks keep you in the relaxation and recovery zone longer. While these legacy tracks are not as advanced as the newer tracks, they are still very effective.
