What is Alpha-Stim?

Alpha-Stim® is the drug-free, clinically proven treatment to alleviate anxiety, insomnia, and pain. Alpha-Stim® generates a unique, proprietary microcurrent waveform that no other device can offer. Much like every white pill is not the same, the uniqueness of Alpha-Stim®’s waveform produces results vastly different from other devices.

The waveform is analogous to the precise chemical compound that differentiates one drug from another. Alpha-Stim's waveform is distinctive in its proven safety and efficacy.

For Anxiety

Use Alpha-Stim daily or as needed to control anxiety symptoms with cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES). ​Anxiety reduction is usually experienced during a single 20-min treatment and may last for hours or days thereafter.


After 5 weeks of treatment with Alpha-Stim CES, participants
reported an average of 94% decrease in anxiety.2

For Insomnia

Alpha-Stim provides a drug-free treatment of insomnia without the side effects of medication. Insomnia is usually improved after the initial treatment but may take up to 4 weeks to see a significant change. It can also be used when awakened during the night.


The number of subjects rating their quality of sleep as poor dropped from 60% at the beginning of the study to 5%.3

For pain

Use hand held probes or self-adhesive electrodes to treat acute, post traumatic or chronic pain. Pain relief is usually experienced immediately or it may continue to diminish hours after treatment.


In a study of severe pain patients, Alpha-Stim significantly reduced pain by an average of 71% after only 5 treatments.1
