What to Bring to Your Calmare Therapy Treatment Sessions

August 2, 2017

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, problem solved below–

We like to think that our patients and their loved ones will be enthralled by our daily good humor, great looks and professional expertise, but just in case, here are some items that we recommend you bring along to your treatments to make you more comfortable:

  1. Any medical documentation you have not sent in advance, including your New
  2.  Patient Documents, which you are welcome to send us in advance
  3. A favorite throw or blanket (thanks Melissa!)
  4. Reading materials and/or electronic devices (which are fine to use during treatment)
  5. Casual, comfortable clothing
  6. Flip-flops, slippers, socks
  7. Refillable water bottle (thanks Tony!)
  8. Epsom salts for soaking between treatments
  9. Sneakers, sunscreen and some cash if you will be going into New York City

If any of our patients can think of anything else they recommend, please add them in the comments section below.

Deena Turns to Calmare Again to Combat Chemotherapy Nerve Pain (CIPN)

June 8, 2017

Deena Lotridge came to us in 2013 after suffering from RSD for five long years. She had tried every medication, treatment and therapy, without success.

She immediately charmed us all with her no-nonsense style and ‘let’s just cut to the chase’ point-of-view. We loved her and prayed her outcome would be successful (which it was).

Deena Fights Back Against CIPN

But her battle was not over. A few years later, Deena was diagnosed with cancer, requiring several surgeries and chemotherapy. The effects of the chemo resulted in nerve damage and reignited the RSD monster.

A few weeks ago she came back to New Jersey, this time for scrambler therapy to lessen chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN), the original condition which helped Calmare win FDA-clearance in the U.S.

Thankfully, a few weeks after five Calmare booster treatments, Deena this update on Facebook:

“Thanks for all you do Dr. Cooney, not just for me, but for all of us. My RSD pain is still at 0, hands and feet still improving from CIPN. Did I mention I planted a garden and mowed the lawn today?”
