Don’t Sleep Longer: Sleep Smarter

These days, most of us feel like we’re not getting enough sleep. To some extent, this is true: more than one-third of us don’t get enough sleep every night, but it isn’t just about the amount of time you spend in bed; it’s about getting to sleep, staying asleep, and getting good sleep.

This is how NuCalm can really help you enjoy a good night’s rest.

Fall Asleep Faster

Many people have trouble getting to sleep right away. There are too many distractions to let your brain shut down and enter its process for falling asleep. NuCalm can really help with this.

Using NuCalm helps you put aside the things that are bothering you and get some distance from them. You enter a calm state and stop obsessing about the things on your mind. It lets you focus on getting rest when it’s time to rest, which then makes you readier to work when it’s time to work.

Get Better Sleep

Spending lots of time trying to fall asleep when you can’t or staying awake when your body wants to fall asleep can create a situation where your body has a hard time either staying awake or falling asleep. Its ability to read and respond to environmental and behavioral clues is hampered, which makes it hard for you to get quality sleep.

NuCalm can help with this by “grooming” the body’s systems so it can function as it is supposed to. This makes it more possible for you to fall asleep faster and enjoy deeper, more restorative sleep than before.

Deeper Dreams

NuCalm helps your brain enter and stay at the proper brainwave frequencies for dreaming. By falling asleep faster and staying asleep better, you’ll also spend more time in the Restless Eye Movement (REM) state. This means that you can experience more detailed dreams. Many users of NuCalm report vivid dreams and sharper memories when they’re using the system.

The benefits of this aren’t just for sleep–you will likely see better creativity and more inspiration after you start using NuCalm.

When You Need to Rest but Have No Time

In addition to helping you sleep well at night, NuCalm is an amazing system because it gives you the ultimate ability to “power nap.” If you find your energy is flagging but your schedule is still full, you don’t have to set aside hours to restore your energy. Instead, just 30 minutes of NuCalm is the equivalent of up to two hours of restful sleep.

That’s because NuCalm puts you in the state of restorative sleep, which your body naturally transitions through repeatedly at night. By spending more time in this restorative type of sleep, you get more of your energy back and feel remarkably well rested for such a short period of time.

There’s Only So Many Hours in a Day–Use Them Right

If you keep feeling tired all the time, you might think you need to spend more time in bed. This creates a problem, especially if your schedule does not provide time for those extra hours in bed.

Maybe you don’t have to find more time for sleep–maybe you need better sleep. With NuCalm, better sleep is just 30 minutes away.

Is It Worth the Time to Do NuCalm?

You may be looking at the Live Better benefits of NuCalm and thinking, “That’s great, but I don’t have time for NuCalm.”

We understand: everyone’s schedule is so busy that the thought of inserting another 20 minutes or more of an activity into your day can seem impossible. And definitely it might not seem worth it compared to all the other demands on your time.

But let us assure you, NuCalm is well worth your time. In fact, after you start doing NuCalm, you’ll probably find that you miraculously have more time than before. How is that possible? It’s simple.

Improve Productivity

When you do NuCalm, you’ll find that your productivity increases. The time spent in NuCalm lets your mind cut through the “noise” of your day, including stress and distractions. Instead, you can clearly identify the most important things for you to do today so you can get to them.

In addition, you’ll find that you have more energy. Sleep is important, but sleep is not the only way your body rests and regains energy. NuCalm helps your body finds its energy reserves so you’re better able to take on your day’s work. Not only that, but you’ll find that you are sleeping better than before. Your sleep will be more efficient, so you can get more rest per hour. No more crashing all day on the weekends just to try to catch up.

NuCalm users might see their productivity increase as much as 30%. Think about what it would look like to get 30% more done each day. Then compare that to the 20 minutes or so spen on NuCalm. See how great that bargain is?

Control Stress

Think about how much time and energy stress steals from you every day. How much time do you spend just worrying? Are you paralyzed and unable to act during the day? Do you stay up at night with worry? That is time wasted. Not only are you getting nothing done: you’re wearing yourself out. Anxiety is one of the most exhausting feelings.

With NuCalm, you can regain all that time and energy. Your stress will be reduced or eliminated. You can spend your time working to control the sources of your anxiety and not just be consumed by it.

Stay Healthy

Do you know what really saps your time? Getting sick. We’re in the throes of one of the country’s worst flu seasons in decades. People are being laid on their backs for days, weeks even. That’s a huge loss of productivity.

How does NuCalm help? NuCalm keeps you healthy partly because it removes your stress. Stress makes you more likely to get sick. It wears down your immune system and makes you more vulnerable to illness.

But NuCalm also helps tune your immune system. It places your body in parasympathetic nervous system dominance, which is the best state for your immune system to identify and respond to threats so your body can heal and stay healthy.

NuCalm Is Worth It

If you’re struggling with a life that seems just too full for you to get everything done, NuCalm is a great way to finally get control. You may be giving up a short time out of your day, but you’ll be getting that benefit back many times over.

What is Localized Cryotherapy?

THE COLD RUSH

Cryotherapy, which literally means “cold therapy,” is a technique where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes. The exposed skin reacts to the extreme temperature by sending messages to the brain that stimulate natural regulatory functions of the body.  The blood vessels constrict, immediately decreasing inflammation and swelling in the affected area by rapidly flushing the tissue of fluid and waste.

COLD SCHOOL

Many people wonder why not just use an ice pack, what’s the difference? There are several benefits with local cryo that you just can’t get with ice.

  • Local cryo allows the skin to get to a consistent, therapeutic temperature without the use of moisture so there is NO pain.
  • Icing is not cold enough or fast enough to create vasodilatation, and the brain feels the slow freezing effect of the ice then wants to send blood to the area to warm it up. This warming attempt can slow the inflammatory process and also slows the removal of lactic acid in the tissue which is the cause of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
  • With ice there is no way to sustain a constant, beneficial temperature.

Another benefit of local cryo over icing is once the cryo process is complete you can move and engage the area immediately whereas icing leaves you numb and stiff until the treated area warms up.

Celluma Light Therapy

Celluma LED Light Therapy

 

LED Light Therapy has been all the rage lately! Clients want to know what exactly is LED Light Therapy and why is it good for their skin. We went straight to the source and got all the answers from our Celluma Pro distributor, BioPhotas.

The Celluma Pro is an award winning LED device that provides a painless, relaxing non-invasive skin care treatment. LED light therapy has multiple benefits- particularly stimulating collagen and treating mild to moderate acne.

Blue, red and near infrared are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED phototherapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P.acnes bacteria. Red penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photobiostimulation of fibroblasts.

LED therapy can be used as a powerful stand alone therapy or add-on to most facial treatments. It is ideal for use following any laser, microdermabrasion, microneedling, or injection treatments. It is clinically proven for the treatment of wrinkles, acne and pain.

According to BioPhotas, in a clinical trial using Celluma to treat facial wrinkles, 80% of participants said that they experienced an improvement in skin texture, 77% reported an improvement in skin firmness and 66% reported an improvement in facial wrinkles after only 4 weeks.

At the Renaissance, you can schedule your Celluma Light Treatment on its own or add it to a facial. It is a 30 minute treatment complete with a hand and foot massage! Our estheticians recommend clients get a series of 6-8 treatments to see the best results. Got more questions, schedule a free consultation today! Call 910.484.9922 to schedule your appointment .
