Don’t let insomnia slow you down.


When is the last time you got a good night’s sleep? If insomnia keeps you up all night, leaving you feeling tired, irritable, and in a fog during the day, you need a fast, safe solution for insomnia treatment to give you longer, more restful sleep.

Fortunately, you can start enjoying better sleep with the Alpha-Stim® AID. Alpha-Stim uses Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) to increase sleep time, reduce sleep disturbances, and improve overall sleep quality, with no lasting side effects and no risk of addiction.



What is Alpha-Stim?

FDA cleared for the treatment of insomnia, Alpha-Stim is a handheld, prescription medical device. It can be used while doing normal activities at home or work and takes just 20 minutes to 1 hour.

Alpha-Stim technology is based on an exclusive patented waveform that’s the most researched and proven of its kind. The waveform passes between two electrodes that you clip on to your earlobes, sending a signal to your brain that helps to significantly reduce insomnia.

To anyone passing by, it looks like you’re simply listening to music with earbuds.

What people are saying…

“I haven’t slept more than four hours in a night in years. The VA used this on me last week, 30 minutes a day for three days. I slept 6 hours two nights and almost 7 the third night. More sleep, better the mood, much less anxiety.” – Paul Reinhardt, US veteran

“It works a treat to help with anxiety and sleep issues. Fantastic product I can’t recommend it highly enough. I use it every night for 20 minutes before I go to sleep and I wake up refreshed and calm. I no longer get an adrenaline spike in the morning which is great.” – Genee Schock, UK

“It works. I am a Veteran. I couldn’t sleep and I was on medication. I am off medication and I sleep much better. Thank You.” – Judy Hughes, Veteran Flight Nurse, Gulf War

“My doctor prescribed the Alpha-Stim for my chronic insomnia. The first night I tried it, I went to sleep without any medication for the first time in years. It’s a small miracle! As I continue to use it, I find my mind is clearer, my moods more even and my stress level is at an all-time low. I’m extremely grateful to have discovered this wonderful device.” — Linda Segall

I recently discovered Alpha-Stim and the results have been nothing short of amazing. Not only have I experience relief from anxiety and insomnia, but, additionally, I have reduced accompanying physical pain.” – CH (MAJ) David J. Fair, PhD, President, American Association of Police Officers; President, Homeland Crisis Institute, Texas

“I believe Alpha-Stim has made a significant difference in my recovery, and I highly recommend it to anyone with sleeping problems, anxiety attacks, and depression.”
Mark Hansen, US Military veteran, Illinois

How It Works

Sleeplessness starts in your brain, where electrochemical signals—called neurotransmitters—control whether we are asleep or awake. During normal sleep cycles, neurons at the base of the brain begin signaling when we fall asleep, and “switch off” the signals that keep us awake.3 When these neurotransmitters become unbalanced, the signals don’t work the way they should—disrupting sleep patterns and keeping you up all night.4

By wearing earclips for 20-60 minutes, Alpha-Stim insomnia treatment safely modulates the brain’s electrochemical signals, bringing these signals back into balance with electrotherapy. This helps so you get more restful sleep, while reducing symptoms from other related mood conditions such as anxiety and depression.

Alpha-Stim electrotherapy is designed to help you avoid or reduce the need for sleep medications, but it is safe to use in conjunction with prescriptions or over-the-counter medications, if needed.

How it works

My patient has been helped A LOT with her insomnia. She had confidence in me (and, ultimately, in Alpha-Stim). It is transforming her life.

I believe Alpha-Stim has made a significant difference in my recovery, and I highly recommend it to anyone with sleeping problems, anxiety attacks, and depression.
