How NuCalm Works
First, Dr. Ahrabi will apply a topical cream, or supply you with a dietary supplement to be chewed. This step is to help your body counteract the adrenaline that makes you feel anxious. This will create a natural feeling of relaxation.
Then small, noninvasive microcurrent stimulation patches are placed behind each ear. This help to facilitate the body’s most relaxed state. Noise-dampening headphones are worn and provide gentle and soothing sounds taking your brain to a pre-sleep state. A light-blocking eye mask is worn to help keep you in a relaxed state.
These four simple elements allow patients to rest in a blissful state of relaxation. Without the use of narcotics, you can remain aware of your surroundings while feeling totally and entirely relaxed.
