The FDA-cleared Alpha-Stim Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) and Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) have helped hundreds of thousands of people achieve remarkable results. Surveys of Alpha-Stim users show overwhelming evidence of the effectiveness of the Alpha-Stim device, listed below:
% Reporting Significant Improvement (>25%)*
Depression + Anxiety
*Patient self-reports after using Alpha-Stim technology for at least 3 weeks.

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, Alpha-Stim has proven to quickly and safely provide relief from pain, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
Quickly and safely help patients get relief from symptoms of anxiety, depression, and insomnia
Quickly and safely deliver sustainable pain relief along with relief from symptoms of anxiety, depression, and insomnia

Why You Should Prescribe Alpha-Stim
You can confidently prescribe Alpha-Stim to supplement medications for patients suffering from acute, chronic, and post-traumatic pain, and to help control mood conditions. You can also use it as first-line therapy for patients unresponsive—or not sufficiently responsive—to medications.
Used appropriately, Alpha-Stim M and AID may provide significant symptom improvements for many of your patients:
- Patients suffering from pain, anxiety, or insomnia can enjoy noticeable relief after just one treatment
- Depression patients typically get significant symptom relief after three weeks of daily treatments
- Once you’ve gotten your patients’ condition(s) under control, you can decrease use of the device. Alpha-Stim is that powerful.
Alpha-Stim Patented Waveform
Alpha-Stim delivers solid relief to patients time after time, as demonstrated in numerous clinical studies conducted over 30+ years.
Alpha-Stim’s ability to deliver beneficial effects after a single treatment abounds in fMRI, LORETA and EEG mechanistic studies and clinical double-blind, randomly-controlled medical, psychological, and dental studies.1-11
Over a five year period, Alpha-Stim saves your patients thousands of dollars compared with drugs typically prescribed for anxiety, insomnia, depression and pain.12

Although rare, please note that Alpha-Stim may put patients into a euphoric state that temporarily limits their mental and/or physical abilities to perform potentially dangerous tasks for several hours. Advise them to be careful when operating a car, truck, or heavy machinery until they know how Alpha-Stim affects them.
You won’t have to worry about lasting side effects. None have been reported. Some patients get occasional self-limiting reactions such as lightheadedness, headaches, or skin irritation from the electrodes.
