How Does Alpha-Stim Work?

Alpha-Stim is a cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device, almost similar in size to a small cellphone. It is designed to deliver a very tiny microcurrent, through small clips attached to a person's earlobes, to the brain. This current, which is so gentle that few people can feel it, will then stimulate and adjust a specific set of nerve cells in the brain. CES can bring relief to those who have anxiety and depression. It can also counter insomnia and improve sleep quality significantly.

Alpha-Stim treatment usually lasts for 20 minutes and up to an hour, depending on what the doctor says. Being a portable device, treatment can be done at the office during a long break, in the privacy of your own home, or at a therapy center. With the clips being small and attached to your ears, you will look like you are relaxing while listening to music.

Alpha-Stim can also be used to provide electrical stimulation on areas of the body that is experiencing post-traumatic, acute, or chronic pain for pain management.
