Alpha-Stim® Technology

Fast, safe relief from pain, anxiety, depression, & insomnia

Alpha-Stim is an electrotherapy device prescribed around the world by physicians and other healthcare professionals to effectively treat chronic, acute, and post-traumatic pain, and anxiety, insomnia, and depression.

Why Alpha-Stim?

Our emotions are regulated by different signals in our brains. These signals are activated, or are turned on, by neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, that help with regulation of our feelings and pain sensations. Sometimes these signals are off balance and may cause emotional or physical pain. The signals may need help getting back on track. This can be done with medication, talk therapy techniques such as mindfulness, or physical activities such as exercise. Alpha-Stim can also help to re-balance the neurotransmitters in the brain by safely emitting signals that are similar to brain waves to help with anxiety, depression, sleep and pain.

How Does it Work?

The Alpha-Stim AID utilizes cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) to deliver the exact waveform that is necessary to treat anxiety, insomnia, and depression. The waveform increases alpha waves and decreases delta waves which activates neurotransmitters for the regulation of mood and emotions, the decrease of agitation, and enhances changes in sensory processing. Some people initially experience groggy or euphoric relaxation initially. While others start to feel the alertness right away, with no “brainfog,” clearer vision and energy. The trick is to continue to use the Alpha-Stim past the groggy phase and into the more clear and alert phase to produce results.

Administration of the Alpha-Stim is done through electrodes placed on the earlobes. The device can be used from 20-60 minutes each day depending on the current used.

Clinically proven(link to research)

Alpha-Stim is supported by over 95 completed independent research studies and published reports that utilize some of the most rigorous, controlled clinical study methods. Again and again, the Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device has proven to quickly and safely provide relief from pain, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

In a study of severe pain patients, Alpha-Stim significantly reduced pain by an average of 71% after only 5 treatments. In a post-traumatic pain study, 56% of patients at 3 months and 85% at 6 months were somewhat or very satisfied with the device. Chronic pain patients using Alpha-Stim reported significantly improved functionality than their usual care. Eighty-three percent (83%) of Alpha-Stim users with anxiety reported a reduction in symptoms after just one session. Eighty-two percent (82%) reported a reduction in depression after 5 weeks of use. Alpha-Stim users reported an increased sleep time of an average of 43 minutes after 5 weeks of use and reduction of sleep disturbances after 8 weeks of use.

How to get started
