The Alpha-Stim M unites Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) with Cranial Electrotherapy (CES) like never before. Microcurrent Electrical Therapy has been proven to treat acute, chronic and postoperative pain. This covers all sorts of conditions, including problems that are hard to treat with other methods, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia by transferring a tiny electric current to the body, which gives you long-lasting pain-relief.

Unlike TENS machines, which uses a current far greater than that of the body, MET uses a much lower and safer current to provide sustained cumulative results. By utilising CES in addition to MET, the device has the ability to treat a range of psychological conditions, like Stress, Anxiety and Insomnia. This state of the art technology is housed within a modern, easy to use design making this our most comprehensive Alpha-Stim device ever created.

Alpha-Stim features
  • Cumulative, long lasting result
  • Extremely comfortable, usually no sensation at all
  • Easy to use, one dial controls everything
  • Uses far less current, and is therefore safer than other devices for pain control
  • Use with confidence, built-in circuit self-test and 5 year warranty

The Alpha-Stim uses microcurrent electrical therapy (MET) for those suffering from acute, chronic or postoperative pain. Being non invasive, the Alpha-Stim wont interfere with most other treatments. The Alpha-Stim M is very easy to use, with the MET applied through easy to use probes or self-adhesive electrodes.

Pains the Alpha-Stim M is proven to treat:
  • Systematic Pain
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Head and Neck Pain
  • Migraines
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Lower Extremity Pain
  • Knee pain
  • Sciatica
  • Abdominal pain
  • Upper Extremity Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Back Pain
The Alpha-Stim can be extremely useful to those suffering from short term anxiety and anxiety disorder alike, due to its powerful ability to enhance relaxation. Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) drastically increases the production of alpha brain waves, which causes a state of focused relaxation. Encouraging this state will help sufferers to not only feel physically more relaxed, but also to re-asses the situations and circumstances that make them feel anxious.

Anxiety related states Alpha-Stim is proven to treat:
  • Panic Disorder
  • OCD
  • Bipolar
  • PTSD
  • Cognitive Problems (ADHD)
  • Phobias
  • Insomnia
The Alpha-Stim is FDA approved for the relief of pain, insomnia, anxiety and depression and an ideal treatment for FMS. All of these can be symptoms of FMS. Many people with FMS are sensitive to medication, or they can build up a tolerance to medication. The Alpha-Stim treatment is gentle and subtle and very rarely do people suffer from side-effects, such as those that can arise from medication. Its unique Bipolar asymmetric rectangular wave form is designed so you dont build up a tolerance.

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) has been shown in many studies to quickly, safely and effectively reduce the physical withdrawal, psychological cravings and co-morbid anxiety, insomnia and depression in people suffering from addictive disorders.

Expert testimonial

" I had been suffering with lower back pain for a few months. It was caused by a combination of factors including osteoarthritis of the spine, and just general wear and tear from regular bending and lifting. I carried out a self-diagnosis of lower lumbar pain lumbar vertebrae and sacro-iliac. The pain was very extreme. And its severity made it a terrible nuisance. It was there almost all of the time and stopped me from doing even the simplest everyday things. It was difficult to bend down, pick things up and bending in any direction was very painful and very difficult. I also found it a challenge just getting up from the sofa....I tried the Alpha-Stim. The effects from this were quite something else. It got me through a very painful episode and I have been more or less pain free ever since.

The one thing that really impressed me was the speed at which it helped act on my pain and how effective it was. It meant that I could reduce my painkillers quite dramatically.

Convenience is another reason why I like using the Alpha-Stim. I just clipped it to my belt and put the electrode on my back. I adjusted the time to an hour, 20mins or 10 mins, so theres lots of flexibility to adjust the length of treatment session. You can go about your normal activities and no-one knows that youre having treatment.

Its quite harmless. You can use it safely every day for months and thats whats attractive about the Alpha-Stim theres no drugs, so theres no side-effects, and no interaction with other medication that you might be taking. Thats the beauty of it. Its safe to use and, more importantly, very effective.

The Alpha-Stim can be used for all sorts of conditions like stress, addiction and insomnia. If it can control back pain, my goodness, what can it do for so many more conditions like these?

How Alpha-Stim Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) Works by James Giordano, Ph.D.

The exact mechanism by which Alpha-Stim technology produces effects is not fully known. However, based on previous and ongoing studies, it appears that the Alpha-Stim microcurrent waveform activates particular groups of nerve cells that are located at the brainstem. These groups of nerve cells produce the chemicals serotonin and acetylcholine which can affect the chemical activity of nerve cells that are both nearby and at more distant sites in the nervous system. In fact, these cells are situated to control the activity of nerve pathways that run up into the brain and that course down into the spinal cord.

By changing the electrical and chemical activity of certain nerve cells in the brainstem, Alpha-Stim technology appears to amplify activity in some neurological systems, and diminish activity in others. This neurological fine tuning is called modulation, and occurs either as a result of, or together with the production of a certain type of electrical activity pattern in the brain known as an alpha state which can be measured on brain wave recordings (called electro-encephalograms, abbreviated EEG). Such alpha rhythms are accompanied by feelings of calmness, relaxation and increased mental focus. The neurological mechanisms that are occurring during the alpha state appear to decrease stress-effects, reduce agitation and stabilize mood, and regulate both sensations and perceptions of particular types of pain.

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, suggesting that the electrical and chemical changes evoked by Alpha-Stim technology have led to a durable re-tuning back to normal function.

Alpha-Stim CES engages the serotonergic (5-HT) raphe nuclei of the brainstem. 5-HT inhibits brainstem cholinergic (ACh) and noradrenergic (NE) systems that project supratentorially. This suppresses thalamo-cortical activity, arousal, agitation, alters sensory processing and induces EEG alpha rhythm. As well, 5-HT can act directly to modulate pain sensation in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord, and alter pain perception, cognition and emotionality within the limbic forebrain.
