What Is NuCalm?

The NuCalm system is a four-step program that is made up of the following:
Step 1: By either chewing a NuCalm supplement or applying a NuCalm topical cream directly to your skin, your nerves will be calmed and you will start to feel relaxed.
Step 2: Microcurrent patches will be placed directly behind each ear.
Step 3: You will wear noise canceling headphones which are designed to bring you into the early stages of sleep.
Step 4: You will wear a light blocking face mask to help you to stay calm, cool, and collected during your entire procedure.
