What is the Alpha-Stim?

The ALPHA-STIM® AID is a Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation* (CES) device

that relieves depression, anxiety and insomnia using electromedical thechnology.

What does the Alpha-Stim AID threat?

Your moods and emotions, including anxiety and depression, are controlled through electrochemical signals in your brain. When these signals aren’t functioning properly, the hormones and neurotransmitters that regulate your emotions can become unbalanced.

The technology is based on an exclusive patented waveform that modulates the brain’s electrochemical signals.  The waveform passes between two electrodes that clip on to your earlobes, sending a signal to your brain that helps to reduce anxiety.

The Alpha-Stim has also been shown to be  an effective application for PTSD*, ADD/ADHD, OCD,  and Addictions.

How does the Alpha-Stim work?

The Alpha-Stim Device activates particular groups of nerve cells (serotonin, acetylcholine), that are located at the brain stem. By changing the electrical and chemical activity of certain nerve cells in the brain stem, it amplifies activity in some neurological systems and diminishes activity in others, therefore reducing Anxiety. This Neurological fine tuning occurs either as a result of, or together with the production of a certain type of electrical activity pattern in the brain known as Alpha State. Such Alpha rhythms are accompanied by feelings of calmness, relaxation and increased mental focus. These effects can be produced after a single treatment, and repeated treatments have been shown to increase the relative strength and duration of these effects. In some cases, effects have been stable and permanent.

Is the Alpha-Stim safe to use?

Yes.  It is safe to use on clients of all ages. In 30+ years of clinical studies, involving 8,800 people, only minor side effects such as headaches and skin irritation at electrode sites have been reported by a tiny fraction of users.

How long will I have to use the Alpha-Stim?

Alpha-Stim treatments are cumulative; however, most patients show at least some improvement after the first treatment.

How do I get started with the Alpha-Stim?
