ALPHA-STIM - Effective Relief from Pain, Anxiety, Depression & Insomnia

Alpha-Stim® – A proven, non-drug solution for Anxiety, Depression,
Insomnia, Pain, Fibromyalgia and Addictions.

Both the Alpha-Stim® "AID" and "M" models use Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES), whilst the Alpha-Stim®  "M"  model additionally provides Microcurrent Electrotherapy (MET).

Both CES and MET are provided by means of a microcurrent with a propietory waveform that delivers far better and longer lasting results than the commonly available TENS machines, which are now commonly marketed for pain-relief machine.


Why are CES & MET devices such as the Alpha-Stim® superior to TENS machines?

  • CES produces a cumulative, long lasting result

  • CES is extremely comfortable, the microcurrent usually produces no sensation at all when in use

  • Easy to use, one dial controls everything

  • Uses far less current, and is therefore safer than other devices for pain control


As well as pain relief, the Alpha-Stim® and other similar devices (such as the Oasis Pro), can also be used to provide relief from a range of psychological conditions with marked positive results.

In fact CES / MET  have a long history of delivering results. For example, since 1981, figures show that t
he Alpha Stim has benefited over 10 million people, providing relief from both pain and psychological disorders.

CES / MET devices : Safe, Easy and Effective

Safe

Devices such as the Alpha-Stim® have a proven safety record, with 95 research studies, published reports and ongoing research, physician and patient surveys. Over 30 years, studies involving 8,800 people have reported only minor side effects. The two most common of these were headaches (reported by 1 in every 1000 patients) and skin irritation at the electrode sites (reported by 7 in every 10,000 patients, and only seen in light-skinned people).

Easy

CES / MET devices such as the Alpha-Stim® is so easy to use, that you can administer it yourself at home while relaxing, reading, using a computer or watching TV. Built-in safety features ensure that the device is functioning properly... and being small and portable, they are easy to take with you, wherever you go.

...and Effective

Rather than say anything ourselves about how effective CES /MET devices are, just take a look at these figures we've got for the use of Alpha-Stim® in treating a range of psychological and physical conditions... the numbers speak for themselves:

Peer-Reviewed Outcomes on 2,500 Alpha-Stim® Patients' Self-Reports

Tables 2 & 3, below, indicate the degree of improvement shown by patients (expressed as a percentage improvement in symptoms) following three weeks of treatment of their condition with Alpha-Stim. In all, 2,500 patients were reviewed (1,949 with physical conditions and 723 with psychological and emotional conditions).
