Treatment for Pain, Anxiety, Insomnia, Depression,
The Alpha-Stim® AS-100, which offers both Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) and Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET), is an FDA-approved device for treating pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression. (note: the AS-100 model has been replaced by the M model)
A CES treatment for anxiety, insomnia, and depression consists of simply clipping the probes onto your earlobes and it provides very low electrical currents, similar to those found naturally in the body, for either 20 minutes or 60 minutes. The person undergoing Alpha-Stim treatment will often report a pleasant, relaxed feeling of well-being.
An MET treatment for pain consists of surrounding any painful area of the body with the probes for ten seconds in multiple areas, which is typically completed within five minutes. After the MET treatment, a 20-minute CES treatment using the ear clips completes the procedure.
Using the Alpha-Stim® AS-100, I am now offering treatments to clients. You can choose either a Massage with Alpha-Stim or an Alpha-Stim House Call treatment without a massage (see the Services and Rates page for details).
If you have been diagnosed with any of the following conditions, it has been reported that significant improvement was made in persons with these conditions after using the Alpha-Stim for at least three weeks:
At present, there are over 125 research studies on CES in humans. The overwhelming majority of the scientific research is extremely positive.
For clients who wish to more effectively control their condition by using the Alpha-Stim daily at home, units are available for purchase. The FDA requires that the client first obtain a prescription from a licensed healthcare provider (in Florida, the prescription has to be written by a provider who can legally diagnose conditions, such as an M.D., a P.A., or a Chiropractor).

The Alpha-Stim website also has video clips of television news reports (high-speed internet connection recommended). Be sure to watch the two video clips from Orlando Channel 6--one with Dr. Anita Spitz of Titusville and one of a follow-up report with a local woman who had suffered from four migraines a week before using the Alpha-Stim. Also, check out the video clip from Dallas Channel 4 with Pensacola native/University of Florida graduate/ three-time Dallas Cowboy Super Bowl champion/ recent Dancing with the Stars TV show winner, Emmitt Smith, using the Alpha-Stim during his pro football days.

"With massage therapy alone, the intensity of my
migraines decreased; then, last month, my therapist added the Alpha-Stim with the massage ... over the last three weeks I've noticed a decrease in the number of migraines."
"Because of my job, I'm on
my feet walking on concrete almost eight hours a day, five days a
week. I had pain in my knee every day for about a month and I
figured it was from the flooring. The pain was so constant, that
it was even causing me to be irritable. Howard recommended an
Alpha-Stim treatment, so I gave it a try, even though I was
skeptical. After just a five-minute treatment, the pain level in
my knee went from a '5' (on a scale of 1 to 10) to a '0'. It
has been over a week and even though I still walk on concrete
eight hours a day, I have no pain, which is amazing!"
Many more Patient Testimonials with the conditions that were helped are available on the Alpha-Stim company website. (Note: for conditions such as migraines or Fibromyalgia, they are listed on the testimonials as "Pain") Testimonials are at:
