Alpha-Stim Aid Device – CurrentBody is the first company to recognise one of the fastest-growing trends in the world of beauty. With modern innovation allowing manufacturers to create devices that mimic the on-site devices used by professionals in salons, spas, and clinics, they have brought together a complete selection available for home use technology.
Their story started back in 2009 when Laurence and Andrew were first introduced, Laurence with his background in medical devices and Andrew’s vast experience in e-commerce. The concept of a website geared solely towards the technology of health and wellbeing began with a range of devices that were mostly seen in physio rooms and the homes of elite athletes.
Looking closer into the health rather than beauty technology Women Talking has been trialling The Alpha-Stim AID handheld medical device. This is a smart piece of non-evasive technology, a drug-free treatment that helps to treat a range of psychological conditions. This revolutionary device can help to treat stress, anxiety, insomnia, and depression and can be used in conjunction with most other treatments.
The device uses CES (Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation) to relax and calm the body by sending tiny electric currents via the ear clips. At first, it may seem a little daunting with the setting up of the equipment, but once a regular routine is underway the process is fast and simple. Treatments take only 20 minutes, and you can use Alpha-Stim in the privacy of your own home or take it to work with you. The device is portable, and the ear clips are unobtrusive, so you look like you’re just listening to music.
Cranial electrotherapy stimulation: How it works
Your brain naturally has electrical currents. The Alpha-Stim cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device delivers a natural level of microcurrent, via small clips worn on your earlobes, through the brain to stimulate and modulate specific groups of nerve cells. The microcurrent is tiny, just millionths of an ampere, and so gentle that most people don’t even feel it.
How will it improve my lifestyle?
You may find that any anxiety symptoms are reduced during a single treatment, but the effects can also last for hours after the treatment too. After the initial treatment, you may notice an improvement with any Insomnia you are experiencing, although it is advised that this could also take up to 3 weeks.
You can use the device at bedtime or after waking up in the middle of the night. However, CES treatments may interfere with sleep so you may find that the device is best used in the morning. It can still be used at this time to improve sleep quality at night.
Depression is a whole new, complicated chapter and cannot be generalised. However, typically it can take 3 weeks or more of daily treatment to experience significant improvement. (This is dependent on the type of depression and the level which may take considerably longer.) After the condition is under control, the use of Alpha-Stim 2 – 3 times per week or less is usually sufficient to maintain good results.
It’s not possible for the Alpha-Stim to cause long term side effects and the Aid device can be used alongside medication if given the go-ahead by your doctor.
The Alpha-Stim Aid Device is presented in a handy case, the following is included:
