Calmare Therapy NJ USA now offers CareCredit to patients approved to undergo Calmare Therapy, performed by clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney.

CareCredit helps you pay for out-of-pocket healthcare expenses to help manage medical, health and wellness expenses not covered by insurance.

We added this medical treatment financing option to help prevent our patients with chronic pain from delaying treatment due to financial restrictions. This program also offers special financing options that you may not be able to get with other cards.

You can apply for CareCredit via printed applications available at the Calmare NJ USA clinic or download one here: https://www.carecredit.com/apply/

You will set up your CareCredit account independently and privately by working with the service directly.

Once your account is established, call us at (201) 933-4440 and we’ll securely add this payment confirmation to your file.

Should you have any questions, call CareCredit toll-free at (800) 677-0718 or visit carecredit.com.

Preparing for Your Calmare Therapy

Before the end of the year, we will be welcoming many new patients to Calmare Therapy here in New Jersey who are traveling here from nearby New Jersey to as far away as South America, Sweden, South Africa and Australia.

Patients generally treat for a minimum of 10 sessions, one per business day, lasting about 35 minutes, on average. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible, from your first visit to your last.

  1. Fill out your New Patient Forms in advance. Forward them to us by fax (201-933-8159) or scan and email to calmarenj@gmail.com.
  2. Send or bring along any objective tests (X-rays, EEG, MRI, EMG or cat scans) for our pre-treatment study).
  3. Medications Well in advance of your treatment date, be sure to speak with Dr. Cooney about your current medication protocol in relation to your upcoming scrambler therapy.
  4. Refrain from using skin lotions or oils 24-hours before each treatment.
  5. Dress in loose, comfortable clothing and bring some entertainment to occupy you during each treatment.
  6. Consider keeping a journal about your experience and discuss how you feel each day during therapy.
  7. Make hotel reservations well in advance. We provide a list of lodging options which have received high marks from patients.
  8. Focus on nutrition and hydration. By fueling your body with hydration, you are setting a course for an optimal treatment outcome.
  9. Find ways to help relax your mind and body. Traveling is challenging even when you feel great–it can be exhausting and painful when you are battling pain. Gather items of comfort–slippers, pillows, scented items and keep them in a handy bag on the plane or in the car with you.
  10. Don’t be nervous!  The treatments are non-invasive and have no side effects.

We received a great question from a family coming to New Jersey for Calmare scrambler therapy next week from California–

“What should we bring?

Of the hundreds of posts we’ve published since we introduced Calmare in 2011, we’ve never shared a list of suggested items to bring with you:

Fear not--with our patients' help, we've assembled several things that we hope will make your trip, your treatment and your stay in New Jersey/New York City area as comfortable as possible.
