Three Reasons Why You Should Get a Preowned MyoCalme From StimTens

Three Reasons Why You Should Get a Preowned MyoCalme From StimTens

CES therapy is an FDA-approved treatment option for conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, and more. The treatment uses electrical signals, so there are no pharmaceuticals involved. And since the treatment is FDA approved, you know its effectiveness has been demonstrated. Once you get a prescription from your doctor, you can order a MyoCalme device from places like StimTens. However, before you buy a new unit, here are four reasons why you should consider getting a used MyoCalme device from StimTens.

Significant Savings Compared to Buying a New Unit

To start with the most apparent benefit, buying a gently-used MyoCalme device from StimTens is significantly less expensive than buying a new model. At StimTens, you can get pre-owned MyoCalme equipment for just $259. That price is almost half the cost of a new unit. Saving on the amount of the device makes CES therapy even more cost-effective than it already is. Since you're not buying medication every month, a used MyoCalme pays for itself in cost savings in a matter of months.

Most Pre-owned MyoCalme Devices Are Gently Used

The way MyoCalme devices work ensures that the pre-owned unit you get from StimTens will be gently used. The MyoCalme device connects to electrodes which are placed on your body. So the owner of the apparatus has few chances to damage the device during regular use. And when you get pre-owned MyoCalme equipment from StimTens, these electrodes and attachments are replaced. The pre-owned unit also comes with everything you need, so you don't have to worry about the device missing key pieces. Beside the pre-owned MyoCalme in perfect working condition, you get a new carbon ear clip electrodes and lead wire, a new two-pair 1" x .5" cloth electrodes, a 15 ml tube of electrode gel, new 9V rechargeable battery and charger,  and a new StimTens' carrying case. 

Thoroughly Tested and Guaranteed

Quality control is one of the reasons people are apprehensive about buying used products. To ensure that there are never any issues with products we sell, each gently-used MyoCalme is tested by StimTens before it's shipped out to you. We guarantee that the unit you receive will be in 100 percent perfect working condition. All accessories included with this MyoCalme package are brand new, only the MyoCalme CES device itself has been used. At worst, these MyoCalme stimulators may have some minor blemishes, but the performance of the device itself will be perfection. Besides, all of the equipment mentioned in the previous entry, used MyoCalme devices from StimTens comes with two more things to put a buyer's mind at ease. Not only do you get a 30-day trial period, but we also give buyers a one-year warranty. Unlike when you buy a used car, there's no risk in getting a pre-owned MyoCalme device from StimTens.

3 Situations Where You Should Use Your MyoCalme CES Device

3 Situations Where You Should Use Your MyoCalme CES Device

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation is an FDA-approved therapy that can treat a range of health conditions. One of the best things about this surgery free, non-pharmaceutical treatment is that you can bring the system with you wherever you go. The STIM-TENS Mycolcame Device is a handheld CES treatment device. Here are four situations where you should consider using your MyoCalme Device. 

In the Bedroom

CES therapy has been shown to have a significant impact on reducing the symptoms of insomnia. This useful ability gives you a reason to use your MyoCalme device in your bedroom before bed. In research cited by the publication, Practical Pain Management, “After 30 minutes of stimulation daily for ten days, it was found that those patients receiving actual CES went to sleep faster, awoke fewer times during the night, spent more time in Stage IV sleep, and reported feeling more rested the following morning.” The same study found that the effects lasted over time. When the subjects were followed up years later, the ones who used CES therapy were still getting a better night’s rest.

Before Heading Into a Stressful Situation

Another benefit of CES therapy is reducing stress and anxiety. Using MyoCalme before heading into a stressful situation, such as a college exam or an important business meeting, you can reduce the anxiety that may prevent you from doing your best. CES therapy is believed to work by influencing changes in cortical brain activity that cause altered connectivity in the so-called default mode network (DMN). The CES devices cause small changes in the DMN which lead to changes in the brain's resting state and overall level of arousal, with the result being reduced anxiety. Though the science can be difficult to understand, the medical equipment based on these principles is easy to use. To use MyoCalme, simply attach the ear clip electrodes, set the time and power, then sit back and relax for 20 to 30 minutes. 

When You Need Help with Depression Symptoms

CES therapy is also an effective treatment option for people with depression. Patients with depression often report positive results after the first treatment, with most reporting positive results within the first few weeks. Some patients can use a CES device to supplement or replace their pharmaceutical-based treatment. Another reason to consider CES therapy is that it's a cost-effective solution when compared to daily medications. You only have to buy the CES device once, rather than continually purchase medication refills.

Though CES therapy is effective and easy-to-use, you need a doctor’s permission first. Before you get a prescription for a CES device, your doctor will use several tests to see how well you may respond to CES therapy. Once you get your prescription, it’s time to get your MyoCalme Stimulator device.

You’ll see that it’s powerful and advanced enough for a professional, but simple enough that anyone can use. You can buy a MyoCalme Device from our online store, and you can even save money by getting a gently-used MyoCalme stimulator from someone who completed their CES therapy. 

3 Ways You Can Benefit By Using Electrotherapy Stimulation

3 Ways You Can Benefit By Using Electrotherapy Stimulation

Your smartphone is an excellent example of the advances that have been made in technology miniaturization. Shrinking technology isn't just for communication and entertainment. Medical device manufacturers have made it easier for people to treat their conditions without bulky equipment. StimTens makes various electrotherapy devices that can enhance your emotional and physical well being. Here are three ways you can benefit from electrotherapy stimulation. 

Sleep Better at Night

Insomnia and an overall lack of sleep is an epidemic in modern society. According to research cited by the CDC, nearly one in three U.S. adults don’t get enough rest. Lack of sleep can make you less productive at work and less attentive on the road. Electrotherapy can be used to help fight insomnia. StimTens makes a MyoCalme CES therapy device that can alleviate anxiety, insomnia, and depression. 

Our MyoCalme device, which is cleared by the FDA, is compact and easy to use. All you do is attach the ear clip devices and relax for 20-30 minutes. The device sends signals to your brain that affect the balance of hormones related to stress and sleep. Besides helping you rest at night, you can bring the device with you and use it anytime you need help relaxing.

Reduce Stress

Cranial Electrotherapy is also useful for treating various mental health issues, such as stress. The Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation provided by our MyoCalme device can help balance hormones in your body that affect stress and anxiety. Your body uses hormones and chemicals to regulate flight and fight responses. By using CES therapy, you can balance these signals, which will leave you feeling more relaxed. A 2017 meta-analysis of five studies of CES patients found “evidence that CES may be moderately beneficial for patients with depression and anxiety.”

Treat Depression

As the analysis mentioned above stated, the technology at the core of the MyoCalme device can also be used to treat the symptoms of depression. A 2018 report from the VA also noted that there was “evidence for a possible beneficial effect of modest size in patients who have anxiety with depression.” By helping patients with issues related to stress, anxiety, and depression, using CES devices like MyoCalme can also alleviate desires to drink and smoke. If you’re interested in trying CES Therapy for yourself, you can save some money by getting a pre-owned MyoCalme device for under $250

There was also a recent study that showed the effectiveness of CES therapy for treating depression. Researchers looked at the impact of CES, on a group of people with bipolar II depression between the ages of 23 and 71 with bipolar II depression. Using devices similar to MyoCalme (where the current is directed through the earlobes), treatment was delivered five days a week over two weeks. According to a write-up on BP Hope,  “Participants saw a significant decrease in depression symptoms, with results persisting over a period of four weeks.”

There are a lot of ways that electrotherapy can be used as a drug-free alternative for various stress-related conditions. Talk to your doctor about ways you can supplement your treatment for anxiety, depression, and insomnia using electrotherapy devices like MyoCalme. And if you are in the market for a high-quality electrotherapy device, you can find what you need at StimTens. Send us a message online if you have questions about our products.
