Our expert view
Alpha-Stim M gives you quick, natural and sustainable pain relief, as well as treating a range of associated conditions such as anxiety, depression and insomnia.
Using a unique combination of Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) and Cranial Electrotherapy (CES), the handheld device transfers a tiny electric current to soothe and calm the body.
This waveform activates key groups of nerve cells that are located at the brainstem.
As you continue to use the device, the therapy creates a domino effect down the spinal cord and across the body, bringing your brain's electrochemical signals back into balance to help you feel fully rested.
With a simple treatment plan, the device can be effective when used just 20 minutes every day to induce a pleasant, relaxed feeling of wellbeing.

Why it works
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.
What's the Difference?
Alpha-Stim create electrotherapy devices to effectively treat chronic, acute, and post-traumatic pain, and anxiety, insomnia, and depression.
Prescribed by doctors and other healthcare professionals around the world, as well as clinically proven in NHS trials, Alpha-Stim AID and Alpha-Stim have some notable differences whilst both offering life-changing results to patients.
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 stabilise mood and regulate both sensations and perceptions of particular types of pain.
Why It Works
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.
The Alpha-Stim® M may affect the operation of implanted demand-type cardiac pacemakers and implanted defibrillators.
For external use only. Do not allow children to use or handle this device without adult supervision. Do not operate potentially dangerous machinery or vehicles during treatment and in some cases for several hours after treatment. Safety of stimulation has not been established during pregnancy.
