Alpha-Stim Treatment Vancouver WA

Drug-free relief from anxiety, insomnia, depression and pain

What is Alpha-Stim Therapy?

Alpha-Stim Therapy is a medical treatment via a small, hand held device that can relieve symptoms of anxiety, depression, insomnia and pain.

The Alpha-Stim device transmits a microcurrent at the site of application (often on the ear lobes). This microcurrent modulates activity in the central nervous system, influencing cells in the brainstem and facilitating alpha waves.

When the Alpha-Stim device is used for pain, electrodes are placed at the site of pain on the body where a microcurrent is transmitted which modulates nerve cell signaling and reduces the perception of pain.

How does the Alpha-Stim device work?

The Alpha-Stim device transmits a microcurrent via the earlobes which modulates activity in the central nervous system, influencing cells in the brainstem and facilitating alpha waves. Alpha waves are associated with states of mental calm and focus. Facilitating alpha states in the brain can reduce stress, improve mood and promote restfulness.

When the Alpha-Stim device is used for pain, electrodes are placed at the site of pain on the body where a microcurrent is transmitted which modulates nerve cell signaling and reduces the perception of pain.

The effects of Alpha-Stim Therapy may be noted from a single session. However, the results are cumulative and benefits increase with repeated use over the first 2 months. Patients at Northwest Health Specialties can be trained to use the device in the office with a practitioner, after which they can rent or buy an Alpha-Stim device for short or long term use at home.

Questions about Alpha-Stim treatment in Vancouver WA

What can I expect at my Alpha-Stim treatment?

A practitioner at Northwest Health Specialties will train you on the use of the Alpha-Stim device during your naturopathic medical or acupuncture appointment. Training will give you a chance to feel the sensation of the Alpha-Stim device and to become familiar functions of the device. If you decide to pursue ongoing treatment with Alpha-Stim, you may rent or purchase the device from the clinic for regular at-home use.

How long is an Alpha-Stim treatment?

Generally, the Alpha-Stim device is recommended to be used for treatment sessions of 20 to 60 minutes.

How many Alpha-Stim therapy sessions will I need?

Patients sometimes find benefit from a single Alpha-Stim treatment, however regular treatments over a period of 3-8 (or more) weeks are often needed for maximum benefit from the Alpha Stim device.

What is the difference between the Alpha-Stim devices?
There are 2 types of Alpha-Stim devices: CES and MET devices.
 
The CES, or "Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation" unit uses ear lobe clips. It treats anxiety, depression and insomnia. As a result, this unit is also often referred to as the AID unit "Anxiety, Insomnia, Depression".
 
The MET, or "Microcurrent Electrical Therapy" unit uses electrode probes or patches to treat pain. This treatment is then finished with cranial electrotherapy stimulation via ear clips, which are included in the MET kit as well. Therefore, with a MET unit, you can treat pain, and have the added benefit of improved mood, relaxation and sleep even if you do not suffer from problems in these areas!
When will I start to feel better?

You may notice some benefit from Alpha-Stim after your first treatment, however treatments are cumulative and maximum benefit generally occurs after regular treatment for several weeks.

Does Alpha-Stim Therapy hurt?

With the Alpha-Stim device you may feel a light tingling sensation from the current flow. There should never be any pain, and your practitioner can assist you in finding modifications to alleviate any potential discomfort that arises. Using the Alpha-Stim device should be very comfortable and relaxing!

How much does the Alpha-Stim device cost?

Alpha-Stim devices rent out for $87/month on contract. It is rent–to–own with the CES unit being paid off after just over 8 months, and the MET unit being paid off after 1 year.

Note: Alpha-Stim prices are subject to change before contract signing.
