ALPHA STIM 100 - What is it?
from the library of Robert L. Talley, DDS.
The Alpha Stim 100 is an electronic stimulation device that induces a comfortable sensation called Alpha relaxation. Alpha relaxation originates from the part of the brain stem which controls the wake/sleep cycle. Therefore, the Alpha Stim can be used to help reduce anxiety, tension headache and create a general relaxation. Alpha relaxation is also a pre-hypnotic state.
How does it feel?
Most people experience changes in perception of body weight. Usually, a heavy feeling at first and a lighter sensation as time passes with the instrument in use. A general feeling of "well-being" is created. Often, a tingling sensation in the ears or extremities occurs during part of the treatment time.
One office treatment generally lasts 12-24 hours. It can last for up to 48 hours with some individuals. If you feel extremely relaxed, you should wait before leaving the office and driving yourself home.
The Alpha Stim can help the musculo-skeletal system return to normal comfort and function faster that it could without its use.
