This portable, non-pharmaceutical therapy is used to treat issues like insomnia, depression, anxiety, and more. This isn’t just some fad gadget health product. The Food and Drug Administration has cleared equipment like the Myocalme CES Therapy device to help users with a range of conditions. If you’re curious about trying CES therapy, here are five things you should know about a MyoCalme device.

You Won’t Spend Money On Batteries

Not only is the MyoCalme beneficial for your health, it’s also cost effective and “green” for the environment. Unlike other FDA cleared CES devices, that use MANY disposable batteries, the MyoCalme CES therapy device includes a rechargeable battery that you may use over and over. In fact, the new MyoCalme 2.0 model, available August 2019, includes an internal rechargeable battery that recharges in a few hours. This is the only FDA cleared device that includes this feature.

Your MyoCalme Device Can Be Used Anywhere

When people think about medical equipment, it's often bulky apparatuses that need to be used in a select location and at a particular time. For example, a dialysis machine isn't going anywhere. One of the benefits of the MyoCalme devices you can get from StimTen is that it can be used anywhere. MyoCalme devices are small and lightweight. They can easily be stored in a purse, bag, briefcase, or pocket. This portability means patients can take advantage of the benefits of CES therapy whenever they need it. 

The Best Place to Use a MyoCalme Device

Though a MyoCalme CES device can be used anywhere, there are some recommendations for the best place to use it. If possible, you should find a quiet, comfortable position when using your CES therapy device. Preferably, a place with as few distractions as possible. Once you've found your spot, you may recline, lie down, or sit upright; however you feel most comfortable. Even in stressful situations, it's possible to find a quiet spot where you can relieve your stress by using a MyoCalme device. One main advantage of the MyoCalme device is that it is very discreet, thanks to the earclip electrodes, it simply appears like you’re listening to music on your smartphone when you’re using it so you’re welcome to take it to your favorite place to relax.

Length of Treatment

Customers that use CES therapy often report benefits as soon as they start using their device, while others may take a few weeks before they notice lasting results. The results can be somewhat different depending how individuals respond to electrotherapy. One thing to keep in mind, is that the positive results are cumulative so you will continue to see improvement over time. The recommended length of a MyoCalme session is typically 30 minutes.

4 Benefits to Using a MyoCalme Device for CES Therapy

4 Benefits to Using a MyoCalme Device for CES Therapy

The human brain is a very sophisticated organ, and there is still much that we don't know about the way it operates. One thing we do know about the brain is that it is controlled by electrical signals. The electrical activity in your brain regulates everything from your heartbeat to your hormone levels. Using an FDA-approved cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device, such as a MyoCalme device, to modulate signals to your brain can have positive health benefits.

Here are four benefits to using a MyoCalme device for CES therapy.

Portable CES Treatment

With a name like cranial electrotherapy, many people assume that CES treatment requires large, expensive machinery. However, one of the benefits of CES is therapy is that it's easy to use, and the equipment is very portable. CES devices like Myocalme use a cell phone-sized apparatus that stimulates the cranium, so it can easily be carried in a pocket, purse, bag, or briefcase. And though electrotherapy may sound a little intimidating, CES devices use currents below four milliamps, which means they usually can't even be sensed by the consumer.

FDA-Approved Treatment

CES therapy is a non-pharmaceutical treatment for various conditions, and that fact can make some consumers wary. There are many products on the market that claim to use electrical currents for ways that aren’t substantiated by research. However, CES devices, like MyoCalme, have been recognized by the FDA as a treatment for treatment of depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders. CES therapy is a legitimate treatment option, and authorization is required in order to purchase a device in the U.S.A. Mental Health America noted that research for CES therapy was “promising” and that “given minimal side effects, experimentation with CES is a reasonable choice if other treatments prove ineffective or are poorly tolerated.”

Beneficial for Treating Several Conditions

CES therapy has been around internationally for over 50 years, but it’s only recently begun to gain traction in the U.S. Enough studies have been done to establish the benefits of CES therapy in treating some conditions, such as insomnia, anxiety, and depression. Additional studies and clinical trials suggest other conditions can be helped by using CES therapy. People with conditions like ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD, cognitive dysfunction, and traumatic brain injury should consider asking their doctor if CES therapy could be an option.

Can Be Used in Conjunction with Other Treatment

One of the benefits of CES therapy is that it addresses medical issues in a way that’s different from most other treatment options. This factor means that CES therapy can often be used in

conjunction with another treatment option without worry. A patient who is already taking medication for depression can use a Myocalme device to help with their anxiety without worrying about adverse drug interactions. There are no known contraindications to the use of CES. And any side effects are uncommon and of minimal severity.

Like any treatment option, CES therapy won't work for everyone. However, given the potential benefits and the lack of dangerous side effects make it something worth trying. If you're like most people, you will have positive outcomes from using the CES device. And if you don't, you won't be any worse off, and you can sell the used equipment to someone else who wants to try CES therapy.

The Steps to Getting a MyoCalme CES Device

The Steps to Getting a MyoCalme CES Device

Many consumers are eager to get their hands on a MyoCalme device once they learn about the potential benefits of cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES). It’s a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical treatment option for anxiety, insomnia, depression, and more. These devices aren’t some fad trend. These devices are cleared by the FDA and have been shown to be effective for the issues mentioned earlier. StimTens is the best place to shop online for MyoCalme devices, the MyoCalme is an excellent choice for many individuals but there are some initial steps required in order to receive your device.

Make Sure MyoCalme is Right For You

Cranial electrotherapy stimulation is a legitimate treatment option for several conditions, and individuals in the USA are required to submit an authorization to receive the device. If you suffer from issues related to stress, depression, insomnia, anxiety, etc., you may be a good candidate for CES treatments. Because CES therapy is relatively new, many doctors & health professionals don’t think to suggest it to their patients. If you let your health professional know that you’re interested in trying CES therapy, they will let you know if it’s an appropriate option for you. CES treatments, like the MyoCalme device, don’t use pharmaceuticals and are

non-addictive, so most physicians are more than happy to let their patients try this alternative when it’s suggested. StimTens actually received most of their business from health professional referrals.

Submitting Your Authorization

There are two ways for consumers to provide their authorization information. The fastest method is to use our online authorization that is available directly on the website. You fill out a quick questionnaire, which we then submit to a licensed health professional to confirm, this process typically takes less than 30 minutes. There's an $18 fee for this online processing, but once it's approved, we can immediately send out your MyoCalme device.

You can also submit your own authorization that has come from a licensed health professional. The authorizing practitioner can include a medical doctor (MD), nurse practitioner, chiropractor, psychiatrist, psychologist, physician assistant, acupuncturist, or a social worker (in some cases). Contact us if you have any questions about the authorization process.

Choose a New or Used MyoCalme Device

Stimten’s offers both new or gently-used MyoCalme devices. Both devices will work well and are guaranteed by StimTens. However, used devices are less expensive, with the only difference being some minor wear and tear. Whether you choose used or new, StimTens has the MyoCalme CES device for you.

Another thing to consider at this junction is the way you intend to attach the electrode to your ear. The MyoCalme device has comfortable ear clips that are easy to use. However, some users prefer the included 1" x .5" cloth electrodes. These alternatives can be placed just behind the ear in the small indentation just behind the earlobe. Depending on the style you plan on using most, StimTens has accessories you may want to buy while ordering your device.
