Beneficial Technologies

Steve Rees
As I have spent much of my time introducing people to the wonderful effects of 528 Hz music
from the harp, I would now like to introduce some other technologies that have proven to be
beneficial to our bodies for health and wellbeing. I have decided that these devices and
technologies are so important, that I have started an online store to be able to offer these
items for people to purchase. www.thecalmingstore.com is a place that brings these items
together into one place to make it easy to find these devices that can become a part of our lives
for health and wellbeing.
Light Therapy
Just like sound, light travels in waves of energy. While sound requires a medium like water or
air to travel through, light can travel through a vacuum because it is actual photons traveling in
energy waves. Various frequencies or wavelengths of light have different affects on our bodies.
Some can be helpful, and some, like ultraviolet, can give us a sunburn. One company that has
done a tremendous amount of research to discover which wavelengths are beneficial to us is
the DPL Technology Company, and I am happy to announce that we are working together with
The Calming Store to offer these FDA approved devises for your benefit.
ReVive Light Therapy® uses Deep Penetrating Light (dpl®) Technology, working from the inside
out to penetrate deeper, and enhances the body’s cell repair mechanism. Research and clinical
studies have demonstrated dramatic effects in pain relief, injury recovery, acne treatment and
anti-aging treatment with light therapy. These LED light therapy devices have been engineered
to medical grade specifications and are safe for all skin types.
DPL has identified the specific spectrums of light that generate the desired effects naturally
within our body’s cellular structure and replicated these spectrums with high power LED light
micro-chips. They have been able to remove all harmful and non-productive light spectrums
and deliver concentrated doses of the effective spectrum of light to the body.
Water Filtration
Clean water is becoming harder and harder to obtain today, and it is becoming more and more
expensive. Who would have thought 50 years ago that a gallon of clean drinking water would
cost more than a gallon of gasoline? Many chemicals are making their way into our water
sources and it is becoming more and more necessary to either buy water from a clean source or
filter it ourselves.
I am happy to announce that The Calming Store and Berkey Water Systems have agreed to
work together to provide the state of art in water treatment systems. As an Authorized Dealer,
The Calming Store can provide you with any one of the systems that Berkey manufactures. Our
only limitation is that we can only sell the “Outdoor Systems” in California and we are not able
to sell any in the State of Iowa.

The Berkey system is superior to other systems because it operates by running the water
through the charcoal filters by gravity, thus allowing enough time to remove the impurities
from the water. Many tests have been performed on the quality of the Berkey filtered water
and they routinely outshine the other systems on the market. Most other systems use
pressurized water to push the water through the filter so there is less contact time that is
necessary for absorbing the contaminates.
Clean water is necessary for optimal health in our daily routines. Water helps us detoxify and
helps replenish our cells and keep them from becoming dehydrated. Good water helps keep
our blood flow brisk and prevents it from becoming sluggish through concentration. Plentiful
water also helps keep our various organs in top functioning condition. Pure water is a simple
thing, yet so necessary for optimal health.
Ionic Foot Bath Detox
This treatment seems to not be too popular or available among the general public. I ran into it
myself several years ago when visiting a friend who offered it to people for various conditions.
The idea is that our lymph system is constantly detoxifying our bodies as it was designed.
However, if we can help the lymph system to discharge the toxins, we help it to work better.
The ion bath places a small electric current through a source of water and the current makes
ions our of the water that then attract the toxins out of the lymph system. The first time I did
this I was amazed at the color of the water when I was done. All that “color” came out of me
and it didn’t look like I would miss any of it!
I have found that in my last few years, I have suffered from gout and I have also found that the
foot bath really helps the pain and inflammation of the gout condition be less and leave much
faster than before. Of course, I cannot guarantee any results, but I would encourage you to try
it and see what it can do for you.
Power Strips
I first ran across this technology from a friend who has studied extensively about the energy
pathways that connect our cells throughout our bodies – some refer to them as meridians. It is
well documented that our cells produce a very low level of infrared light when they are healthy,
and they connect with each other through this light or energy network spread throughout our
bodies. When there is an area of disease, there is also a blockage in that area of this network. If
we can detect that blockage and open it up, there can be improvement.
Pain is often an indicator of that blockage. Power Strips™ are a Class 1 medical device uniquely
designed to provide temporary relief of minor aches and pains. Natural elements, such as
germanium, marine phytoplankton and red ginseng are combined to help provide a safe, all-
natural solution for your regular pain management needs. As an all-natural adhesive, safe for
daily use, Power Strips redirect the body’s original heat and energy into the areas of the body
to which Power Strips are applied, amplifying relief and comfort.

Essential Oils
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of
essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds,
bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with
protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their
intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long
been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and
your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic
benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils
are boundless. The Calming Store has teamed up with doTerra to offer a high-quality product
for these various applications.
Along with the essential oils we are also offering a variety of diffusers. Diffusers work to
vaporize the essential oils into the air so that we can breathe in the scents and experience the
calming effects of the oils as they are smelled. Many people feel that their symptoms from
colds and other maladies are eased and they are helped to feel better.
Frequency Generators
There are several different ways to generate sound frequencies for health and wellbeing.
Tuning forks have been used for centuries to help tune instruments because these forks keep
the accurate frequency that is used for a specific note. As we have come to learn more about
the beneficial effects of various frequencies on our health, these tuning forks have become
more popular. We are offering a whole assortment of various frequencies so that you may
choose the ones that you feel are beneficial to you.
We are also offering the singing bowls that are also tuned to different frequencies. These
provide a different way of sounding a frequency but with a different character to the sound.
Another way of producing various frequencies is to have a set of tuned wind chimes that sound
out as the breeze activates them. All through the day, these pleasant chimes will softly sound
out the wonderful notes that are associated with these beneficial frequencies.
Water Features
We are also offering a variety of in-home water features that offer the sound of falling water to
delight the ear. It is felt by many people that the sound of running water is a restful sound that
has a calming effect on the listener. These waterfalls offer a wonderful background sound to
any home. Not only do these water features offer the wonderful sound of falling water, but
they are artistically presented for and aesthetic appeal.

Quality Leather
There is nothing like the feel of leather - whether it is a purse, a notebook, carry bag or a brief
case. The softness and subtleness of the leather seems to have a calming effect as we connect
with it. We have teamed up with a provider to offer fine leather goods for those items that we
use daily and want to last. Unlike cheap vinyl items that become brittle and crack, these leather
items will last many years if taken care of properly. There is nothing like undoing the leather
thong around a leather-bound journal and resting it against your lap as you enter a thoughtful
note of your observations for the day.
Jewelry
Another category we are offering is meaningful jewelry. We have connected with an artist from
Israel that makes an array of fine products that convey a spiritual journey. Many people find it
significant to carry a piece of jewelry that reminds of them of a spiritual reality or a significant
event in their lives. Many find a calming effect when they view a piece of jewelry that reminds
them of a purpose and plan in their lives. Our hope is that you find these pieces a meaningful
addition to your lives.
Harps
Because I am a harpist and have many lessons on YouTube, I am asked frequently for a
suggestion of a good harp to begin with that will remain useful once they advance in technique
and ability. I am happy to recommend the Harpsicle family and I offer them here on this store. I
am pleased to have worked with the Rees Harp Company out of Rising Sun, Indiana to be able
to offer this quality instrument. I use one for my traveling harp when I need to travel
internationally and have found it both a great beginner harp and a wonderful travel harp with
which I give concerts when I find myself abroad. Its excellent sound quality and string tension
make it a real contender for the most versatile harp available.
