Alpha-Stim® is an electrotherapy device used to effectively treat Anxiety, Depression and Insomnia. Since 1981, Alpha-Stim has helped hundreds of thousands of people achieve remarkable results.
The cranial electrotherapy stimulation device relieves symptoms of Anxiety, Insomnia, and Depression quickly and safely. It can be offered to use while in therapy sessions to increase therapy effectiveness or as a stand-alone treatment outside of counseling sessions for Anxiety and Depression treatment at the Lansdowne office.
How Alpha-Stim works
Mood conditions (like anxiety and depression), and insomnia are all controlled by your body’s central nervous system. The billions of individual cells that comprise the nervous system communicate every sensation by conducting electrochemical signals between the cells in your body and brain.
The Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device works by transmitting a unique, patented electrical waveform to modulate the cells’ signals to return to baseline, normal functioning—significantly reducing pain, anxiety, depression, or insomnia without medication. The device clips on the ear lope and is provided for 20, 40- or 60-minute sessions. The strength of the wavelength of determined by the length of time the device is used.
Safety, impressive results, and long-term effectiveness
Physician and patient surveys that show 90% of the people who use Alpha-Stim® CES and MET devices get significant relief when using it as a form of pain, anxiety, depression, or insomnia treatment. This is supported by over 100 completed independent research studies and published reports, many of which were randomly controlled trials to ensure rigorous testing and clinically validated results on the medical devices.
Eighty-three percent (83%) of Alpha-Stim CES active users reported a decrease in anxiety. Eighty-two percent (82%) of participants reported a decrease greater in depression symptoms. Some even reported a more noticeable reduction than taking medication alone. When the device is consistently used, people reported better sleep quality with an increase in an average of 43 minutes of sleep a night.
