Don’t let insomnia slow you down.


When is the last time you got a good night’s sleep? If insomnia keeps you up all night, leaving you feeling tired, irritable, and in a fog during the day, you need a fast, safe solution for insomnia treatment to give you longer, more restful sleep.

Fortunately, you can start enjoying better sleep with the Alpha-Stim® AID. Alpha-Stim uses Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) to increase sleep time, reduce sleep disturbances, and improve overall sleep quality, with no lasting side effects and no risk of addiction. Alpha-Stim technology is based on an exclusive patented waveform that’s the most researched and proven of its kind. The waveform passes between two electrodes that you clip on to your earlobes, sending a signal to your brain that helps to significantly reduce insomnia.

How It Works

Sleeplessness starts in your brain, where electrochemical signals—called neurotransmitters—control whether we are asleep or awake. During normal sleep cycles, neurons at the base of the brain begin signaling when we fall asleep, and “switch off” the signals that keep us awake.3 When these neurotransmitters become unbalanced, the signals don’t work the way they should—disrupting sleep patterns and keeping you up all night.4

Alpha-Stim insomnia treatment safely modulates the brain’s electrochemical signals, bringing these signals back into balance with electrotherapy, so you can get more restful sleep.

Alpha-Stim electrotherapy is designed to help you avoid or reduce the need for sleep medications, but it is safe to use in conjunction with prescriptions or over-the-counter medications, if needed.
