How Alpha-Stim® WorksThe brain is both a chemical and electrical machine that produces neurotransmitters to control electrical outputs throughout the body. By modulating the brain’s electrochemical signals, you can safely and effectively improve mood conditions such as anxiety and depression, and experience better sleep. These symptoms are controlled by the body’s central nervous system, which is comprised of billions of cells. These cells are responsible for carrying the electrochemical signals between the brain and the body. Researchers believe that Alpha-Stim® treatment helps to re-establish optimal brain chemistry and improves the efficiency of neural connections by sending tiny electrical currents to targeted cells in the brain using a method called Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES). These currents normalize the electrical output of the brain and increase the production of serotonin and other neurotransmitters, which are believed to increase relaxation, inhibit feelings of agitation and arousal, and allow the body’s nervous system to regain balance and create patterns in the brain called alpha rhythms. Once an alpha state is attained, the individual experiences mental focus and relaxation. Alpha-Stim® safely and effectively improves mood conditions such as anxiety and depression, and aids in the treatment of insomnia and pain. The effect of Alpha-Stim® is cumulative, meaning each treatment builds upon the last, and will not lose its effect over time, as with many medications. Most users notice an immediate reduction in anxiety and stress during the very first treatment. Doctors are seeing strong clinical benefits with Alpha-Stim®, and research shows that 9 out of 10 patients achieve significant relief of 25% or better improvement from their symptoms even when nothing else has worked for them. Over the past 35 years, this technology has been the subject of over 100 independent research studies and published reports that substantiate the efficacy. Most importantly, Alpha-Stim® has NO significant side effects, and can be used concurrently with traditional treatments including psychotherapy and psychiatric medications. Our psychiatric colleagues have even reported that they can often reduce or sometimes discontinue medications for their patients using Alpha-Stim®. Would you like to learn more about how Alpha-Stim® may help you? If so, we would be happy to arrange a time for you to try Alpha-Stim® CES yourself. Try it for 20 minutes, and you can experience firsthand how CES makes you feel more relaxed and focused. Once we have assessed that Alpha-Stim® fits your needs, you can request the treatment during your scheduled therapy appointments for added benefit in reducing anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbance. You can also schedule stand-alone treatments or even purchase a device for home use. North Texas Psychology offers Alpha-Stim® treatment during scheduled therapy appointments or as a stand-alone treatment in our office. In addition, the Alpha-Stim® device can be prescribed and purchased for home use through our office.
Getting Started with Alpha-Stim®
We are proud to offer Alpha-Stim® as a safe and effective treatment method for anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The treatment is non-invasive, drug-free, and can be used in conjunction with most other treatments. Our psychologists are fully trained on how to get the best possible results from this treatment.
To use the device in-office without participating in therapy or to purchase an Alpha-Stim® device for home use, you will be required to attend a half-hour session where we will assess whether or not the device is appropriate for your individual needs. If found to be a good candidate, you will receive training and a prescription upon request. After the assessment, you may schedule future on-site treatments, or you can purchase a device to use in your home. The $50 fee for the assessment is waived for those purchasing a device through our office.
