Treat Anxiety, Insomnia, and Depression with the Alpha-Stim® AID

The Alpha-Stim® AID is a drug-free Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) medical device that uses low-level electrical current to safely and effectively treat anxiety, depression, and insomnia. CES was cleared by the FDA in 1992 as a prescriptive, noninvasive treatment. It has an extensive safety record, with few side effects (seen in less than 1% of users and considerable scientific evidence of the significant results patients can achieve.

The Alpha-Stim uses small earclips that provide Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) to treat anxiety, insomnia, and depression. Using a patented waveform, Alpha-Stim is proven safe and effective by more than 100 studies over the past 37 years.

Alpha-Stim treatments are cumulative; however, most patients show at least some improvement after the first cranial electrotherapy treatment
Alpha-Stim technology is safe, with no serious adverse events reported in over 30 years of clinical use
Alpha-Stim devices can be used as a first-line therapy, or as an adjunct to pharmacotherapy (without polypharmacy effects)
The Foundation: A Patented Waveform
  • The only rigorously tested CES waveform designed and refined to improve effectiveness
  • Electrotherapy treatment delivers a very low level of current in pulsed microcurrents of less than one milliampere
  • Effectively targets cell receptors, activating them through frequency matching in a manner similar to chemical ligands
Alpha-Stim Waveform
The Impact: An Electrical Intervention
  • The brain functions electrochemically and can be readily modulated by electrical intervention1,2
  • Alpha-Stim electrotherapy treatment for depression, anxiety, and insomnia impacts the electrochemical functions of the brain to improve patients’ emotional and physiologic states
    • Designed to affect the activity of subcortical brain structures known to regulate emotions
    • fMRI studies demonstrate the waveform current changes the appropriate brain structures
The Results:
Significant Improvement, Quickly, With Lasting Effect

Electroencephalographic studies show:

  • Increased alpha activity
  • Decreased delta activity
  • Decreased beta activity

As the leader in CES therapy, Alpha-Stim has helped clinicians around the world provide fast, safe, and effective relief from anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
