Destress on demand with the ultimate power nap.


Go from restless to stressless in minutes.

These days it’s more important than ever to give your nervous system a break!
That’s why we are beyond excited to bring this incredible technology to you.

NuCalm is clinically proven to naturally relax the brain and body within minutes. This patented technology addresses the brain circuitry in the limbic system, the hypothalamus and the brainstem responsible for activating the stress response. Basically NuCalm tells your body you’re safe and makes it impossible to be in stressed state.

NuCalm is the world’s only patented neuroscience technology clinically proven to naturally relax the brain and body and give you relief from stress and anxiety within minutes. Yes, we said minutes!

It works by mimicking the communication pathways used to prepare the body for sleep, forcing your stress response off, and using sound frequencies to guide your brain into the theta brainwave state – the transitional state between wakefulness and sleep – to provide deep relaxation and recovery.

In fact, the results from a Harvard Medical School study found that a 40-minute NuCalm session can give you the equivalent of 2-4 hours of deep restorative sleep.

Now that’s a power nap!

So whether you didn’t get enough sleep last night and need to recharge – or if you’re jetlagged, feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or hungover (it happens) – NuCalm is a fantastic way to hit the reset button and get your vibe back on track.

Athletes in the NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA and Olympics use NuCalm to maximize output by minimizing physical, psychological and emotional stress; NuCalm is clinically proven to help athletes get the restoration they need in order to maintain a healthy internal balance and achieve optimal performance.

So, what does a NuCalm session look like? You’ll get cozy in one of our Pods – Vortex’s wellness zones – then we’ll apply a NuCalm bio-signal processing disc to your wrist – this activates your brain’s natural relaxation system by interrupting your adrenaline response. Next, you throw on the noise-cancelling headphones and an eye mask, and you’re off on your journey.

  • Does this really work?

    YES. We know it sounds too good to be true - trust us, we thought so too. But we’ve been using this system for over two years now and we can safely say it’s a total game changer. The patented sophisticated mathematics and algorithms created by the team at NuCalm have been researched developed for almost 20 years.
  • What should I wear?

    Whatever makes you feel comfortable! It's all about feeling at ease. Cozy clothes are best.
  • How long are the sessions?

    We offer a 20 minute recharge, then 30, 40, and 50 minute sessions that are restorative. All in all, you can't go wrong - whatever you need and whatever fits your schedule.
  • Which session should I start with?

    It's totally up to you, though we recommend starting out with a 40 minute session - we call it the "Steve special" because it's the favourite session of Steve, one of Vortex's founders.
  • Will I fall asleep? What if I snore?

    Firstly: Maybe... NuCalm takes your brain waves to the verge of sleep. The brain wave frequencies reached during typical NuCalm journeys are often associated with REM sleep. There is nothing stopping you from dipping into deep sleep. Your brain will drift into whatever state it needs for optimal recovery. Secondly... Nobody cares if you snore. Everyone is wearing noise-cancelling headphones or is in a private suite. Even if someone hears you, ain't nobody gonna care. ;)
  • When is the best time to NuCalm?

    Basically, you can NuCalm anytime you feel you need it. The only thing you don't want to do is NuCalm right before bed - since our latest business hours have us open til 7, if you're doing NuCalm here you're pretty much good to go. Your lifestyle and daily schedule is something to take into consideration, as well as how you feel on a given day and what you are hoping to gain from your NuCalm session. For example: morning sessions may help finish off a poor night’s sleep; afternoon sessions may help get you through that afternoon lull as an alternative to caffeine. It's up to you, and it's all good!
  • How often should I NuCalm?

    While daily use is ideal (see our memberships), you can NuCalm as often or as little as you like. Depending whether you're dealing with sleep deprivation, poor sleep quality, stress, jetlag, illness, injury - the more you need it, the more you should do it. Additionally, the more you use NuCalm, the more you get a sense of when you need it! First things first, you've gotta try it!
  • Are there any contraindications?

    NuCalm is totally safe. The only contraindication is due to the blackout eye mask component - if you're claustrophobic you may not love that aspect, but it's all good - you can just close your eyes instead.
  • How is NuCalm different than other relaxation methods?

    NuCalm has the only patent for balancing the autonomic nervous system, every time, without drugs. NuCalm uses binaural signal processing, coupled with a sophisticated series of physics and algorithms to quickly, predictably, and consistently slow down brain wave function to theta zones – every time and on every one, within minutes, regardless of context or circumstances. NuCalm does not rely on audio entrainment to do all the work. NuCalm uses biosignaling to neutralize the stress response and then uses the world’s most sophisticated physics entrainment to ‘lock you into’ deep relaxation and recovery. Essentially, NuCalm doesn’t bring a gun to a knife fight, it brings a tank!! In short, unlike other devices and apps on the market, your body will never build a tolerance to NuCalm.
  • Are there any side effects?

    There has not been a single reported adverse event – no one has reported a serious negative event related to a NuCalm session. Most people experience positive side effects, such as increased energy, improved sleep quality and an overall reduction in stress.
  • Can I add compression to my session?

    We recommend for your first NuCalm session that you do it without the compression so you can experience the NuCalm on it's own. For some, the physical stimulation of the compression can distract you from getting the full effect of NuCalm, and we want you to be able to experience it as intended - at least for your first go! Once you've tried both sessions independently, you can make the call.
