Alpha-Stim® is the world’s leading cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device. It is in rapidly growing use by the mental health and pain management fields. This session will introduce CES as a primary anxiolytic, antidepressive and insomnia treatment, as well as a treatment for centrally mediated aspects of pain through treatment of the brain. Peripheral pain treatment with microcurrent electrical therapy (MET) will also be discussed with an emphasis on practical protocols- the art of pain management. Demonstrations of 2 - 5 minute pain management protocols will be conducted on volunteers.
1. The participant will gain an overview of CES and MET theories including research and treatment protocols.
2. To be able to begin using and prescribing CES and MET immediately following this lecture.
3. To be able to manage patients on CES and MET long term, including adverse effects.
