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.

Three Big Uses of CES Therapy & TENS Machines

Three Big Uses of CES Therapy & TENS Machines

As a top CES device and TENS machine provider in the Atlanta area, we hear a lot of questions about these types of equipment and what they do. We offer our customers high quality Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) gear, as well as some Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) machines and we make it our business to be knowledgeable about how these are used by customers.

Because this is part of the frontier of Western medicine, it can be a little more subjective than other types of treatments. Our customers like to know the benefits of these devices as well as the functionality.

Here are three ideas about how TENS/CES equipment is commonly used: CES for Anxiety and Depression

Cranial electrotherapy stimulation has been a go­to method for many people who are struggling with various forms of anxiety and depression, such as panic attacks, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety and more. Certain devices have been FDA cleared for these uses. CES offers a non­drug method of treatment for anxiety and depression problems that affect so many millions of Americans each year.

CES for Sleep Disorders

Another big use of CES gear is in the treatment of insomnia and various sleep disorders.

Again, prior to the advent of these types of equipment, patients often went directly to using substances to help them sleep. You've heard about self­medicating, where those avoiding modern medical care simply use alcohol or other soporifics to get the sleep that they need. That's kind of a worst case scenario, and some patients actually get prescribed a sleeping pill or use natural items like melatonin.

In any case, sleep is critically important, and affects every area of our lives. People who do not get enough deep sleep on a continual basis run the risk of suffering from various secondary health problems and quality of life issues.

CES devices can be a frontline method of treatment for sleep disorders, and that on its own can be a very attractive reason for a medical office to purchase these devices.

Improving sleep quality improves our health – and having a non­substance, non­invasive way to cure these types of issues is a big value to people.

TENS therapy and Athletics

TENS equipment is often used by both athletes and non­athletes to stimulate muscles. While there is a consensus that TENS therapy doesn't really stimulate muscle enough

to build new muscle, dealing with contracting and expanding muscles can be critically valuable for many of those who want to enhance their performance, or even just stay safer while doing recreational or team athletics. Changing the ways that our muscles work changes the ways that we work out, as any fitness pro will tell you!

Talk to StimTens WorldWide LLC about all of the uses that medical offices can get out of these innovative cutting­edge machines. We specialize in providing CES and TENS gear that is built to do what it is intended to. Our CES machines include a 30­day trial period.
