We would like to bring to your attention Alpha-Stim, which is a medical device cleared by the FDA for the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, depression and pain. Allevia Health, Inc., which is the Authorized Alpha-Stim Distributor for Oregon and Washington, has been supporting the WSPA and exhibiting with your organization for more than 15 years. Over the years, numerous MS and PhD-level psychotherapists in Washington State have successfully used our devices to enhance their clinical work, especially with patients exhibiting significant anxiety and sleep problems.
Alpha-Stim is a CES device (external cranial electrotherapy stimulator powered by 2 AA or AAA batteries) that can be used to facilitate the treatment of anxiety, stress, and insomnia without medications.
The device is highly effective at curbing the sympathetic dominance state and can be used to treat anxiety (state and trait), agitation, stress, trauma, sleep disturbances and pain (peripheral and central).
Alpha-Stim can be used in a variety of in-patient or out-patient mental health settings. A single treatment with the device typically takes only 20 minutes and can be repeated PRN during the day to control symptoms. Effects of the treatment are residual and cumulative.
Alpha-Stim can be combined with medication, CBT (individual or group), EMDR or neurofeedback. The device does not stimulate the reward pathway and thus has no potential for abuse or addiction and thus can be used to treat comorbid psychiatric disorders (e.g., GAD) in substance abuse patients where the use of medication is more limited.
Our company offers sales and rent-to-own programs to patients and providers in Oregon and Washington. We also offer 60-day provider loans of our devices that allow you to evaluate the benefits of this modality in your clinical practice.
