The Evolution of Alpha-Stim®: From a 40-lb Box to a Sleek Handheld Device

The Evolution of Alpha-Stim®: From a 40-lb Box to a Sleek Handheld Device

Over the years, the design of Alpha-Stim has evolved, but the underlying technology has been proven effective time and again at treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and pain. Alpha-Stim uses a patented waveform that sets it apart from all other treatments. The AID transmits microcurrents into the brain through noninvasive ear clip electrodes to treat anxiety, insomnia, and depression. The M uses Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) along with CES, and delivers microcurrents directly to the site of pain via probes placed on the body.

Alpha-Stim is not a drug. In fact, it is more effective than medications, and without the risk of addiction or lasting side effects. It is FDA cleared and available by prescription in the United States. Outside of the U.S., Alpha-Stim is available over the counter.

No matter what it looks like on the outside, Alpha-Stim remains a safe and effective treatment for anxiety, insomnia, depression, and pain. Get started today and see why Alpha-Stim has been trusted by practitioners and patients since leg warmers and acid-wash jeans were cool.
