How Alpha-Stim Works for Anxiety, Insomnia, Depression* & Pain
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) for anxiety, insomnia, and depression, and Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) for pain.
CES is a form of non-invasive brain stimulation that applies rhythmic, low amplitude current to the brain via earclip electrodes. Psychiatric disorders, such as anxiety and insomnia, are associated with alterations in electric activity in large-scale brain networks. Research suggests that Alpha-Stim® CES modulates large-scale brain network activity patterns in two synergistic ways:
Stimulating Cranial Nerves including the Vagus Nerve
Directly Modulating Cortical Oscillations in the temporal lobe, which is part of the default mode network.
PRF treatment has progressively gained a place in the management of chronic pain syndromes. The concept is appealing because long-lasting effects are reported without complications. Link
How does it work? “Pulsed radiofrequency creates a nerve modulation, significantly reducing inflammation and its associated symptoms,” stated Dr. Alessandro Napoli, Ph.D., the study’s senior author and a professor of interventional radiology at Sapienza University.
