Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation

Someone asked me what to expect from CES treatments? Anxiety reduction is usually experienced during a single treatment and may last for hours or days thereafter. Insomnia is usually improved after the initial treatment but may take up to four weeks to see a significant change. For best results people treat at least 3 hours prior to bedtime. It can also be used when awakened during the night. Depression typically takes at least three weeks or more of daily treatment to experience significant improvement. Once symptoms have improved, use CES two to three times per week or less is usually sufficient to maintain good results.

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation is a clinically proven medical device that relieves anxiety, insomnia and depression using electro-medical technology. It generates a unique patented waveform no other device can offer. Unlike medications which are introduced to your body in a chemical form and then broken down to smaller components such as electrons, this begins at the electron level, allowing your body's cells to return to their natural functioning state. This provides long lasting, cumulative relief without risk of negative effects such as tolerance, and addiction to medications.

Is Cranial Electrotherapy stimulation safe? 

There are over 95 research studies and published reports, as well as ongoing research patient surveys and professional endorsements, all supporting the safety and efficacy of CES. In over three decades of studies involving approximately 8,800 people only minor, self-limiting side effects have been reported, with the two most common being headaches (0.10%) and skin reactions at the electrode sites (0.07%). In a recent five year study 8,248,920 treatments resulted in 14 instances of minor side effects, 11 of which were skin irritation at the electrode site. This CES treatment is FDA approved.
