CalmConnect is not like anything else.

CalmConnect is a scientifically based, digitally streamed behavioral health program that harnesses the power of human connection to calm the nervous system and increase social connectedness and wellbeing.  This multisensory practice simultaneously engages the user, physically, cognitively, and emotionally, and is designed to shift users from ‘fight or flight’ to a calm and regulated state. 

A patented social engagement system that works for people of all ages and abilities in just a few minutes, CalmConnect regulates the nervous system and changes behavior, making it easier for individuals and families to engage with the world – at work, at home, and at school.

The program is used by thousands of organizations, schools, senior centers and homes around the world.

Benefits include the following:

  • Immediately calms the body and mind
  • Easier transition times between activities
  • Mitigates loneliness caused by social isolation
  • Reduces agitation, anxiety, and depression
  • Increases collaborative behavior
  • Eliminates or minimizes meltdowns
  • Easier bedtimes and faster sleep
  • Also recommended as a family activity; benefitting all ages (3-103)

Drawing in part from the burgeoning field of relational neuroscience, CalmConnect is based on the theory that the human brain is built to operate within a network of caring relationships. When we are isolated or cut off from others our mental, emotional, and physical health suffer.

CalmConnect helps people of all ages and abilities to calm their nervous system, change their behavior, and connect with others.

It’s how we move from me to we.
