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.
