A new device similar to an MP3 player from Silicon Valley-based technology corporation NewReality puts a healthy spin on downloading content. The gadget, dubbed the NXTlynk™ PAD™ (Personal Achievement Device), provides “personal mental coaching” in addition to your music library. The player comes with light-pulsing glasses that stimulate and relax optic nerves. The NewReality Web site features downloadable content for guided Creative Visualization and Relaxation (CVR™) programs.

The PAD is the first portable handheld device of its kind. Similar in size and design to an iPod®, the PAD is launching with NewReality’s CVR programs, designed by esteemed therapist and award-winning author Dr. Patrick Porter. Including more than 200 different 20-minute “mental-coaching” sessions, the downloadable programs address wellness topics from stress and pain management to weight loss, smoking cessation, life mastery, golf mastery, and many more, all utilizing the mental ability to relax, focus, visualize, and achieve a desired outcome.

“We are extremely proud to launch NewReality’s PAD,” said Dr. Patrick Porter. “Delivering this portable device means major possibilities for a large percentage of the population that is looking for a helping hand – bringing what has traditionally been a clinical-based process into the home dramatically increases the likelihood of users achieving their goals.”

Already a treatment favorite at leading spas, wellness centers and resorts, NewReality’s CVR programs help users to de-stress, relax, boost mood and confidence, and help to achieve individual goals.

The PAD retails for $600 and comes pre-loaded with a selected 13-week session. The PAD plugs directly into your computer for exclusive access to a specified url where users may download additional programming. More than 100 hours of NewReality’s “personal coaching” content may be downloaded per session or as weekly or monthly subscriptions.

The programs and the PAD are available online at
