Alpha-Stim® is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device that is proven to safely and effectively relieve pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression.
Alpha-Stim uses cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) to deliver a patented waveform via two earclip electrodes. Treatments typically take 20 minutes and can be done in your therapist’s office, or should you desire, you can purchase one through your provider, and use in the comfort of your own home.
Relief is often immediate and treatments are cumulative, meaning that, over time, the device(s) train your brain to do on it’s own what the treatment provides.
Unlike medications, Alpha-Stim treatments have no lasting side effects, no risk of addiction, and no danger of interaction with medications.
How Alpha-Stim Works
Medications are introduced to your body in a chemical form and then broken down to smaller components, such as electrons. Alpha-Stim begins at the electron level, allowing your body’s cells to return to their natural functioning state.
It does this by generating a microcurrent through the brain which stimulates and modulates specific groups of nerve cells, successfully changing the brain’s electrical and chemical activity. In changing the activity of the brain, Alpha-Stim amplifies some neurological systems and deactivates others, effectively “evening things out.”
For example: Someone suffering from anxiety may have over-active nerve cells in one part of the brain and under-active nerve cells in another part and the imbalance contributes to their anxiety. The current generated by an Alpha-Stim device calms the over-active cells and stimulates the under-active cells, restores balance to the brain, and provides relief to the anxious person.
