One of the hallmarks of the integrative medicine philosophy is applying complimentary and holistic approaches to illness. Many of our patients come to us looking for alternatives to powerful mind-altering pharmaceuticals. Lake Travis Integrative Medicine is on the forefront of regularly exploring and implementing new approaches. One of our biggest successes is our Alpha-Stim program.
Alpha-Stim is an easy to use, at-home electrotherapy device prescribed around the world to effectively treat chronic, acute, and post-traumatic pain, as well as anxiety, insomnia, and depression. The treatment uses a physician-invented technology that addresses the fact that the body is a complex series of electrical impulses that control all physiological functions. Modulating these electrical impulses brings relief for most patients.
Alpha-Stim treatments amplify some neurological system activity and deactivate others in a fine-tuning process called neuromodulation. This unique and simple to use pain relief and depression treatment device can produce beneficial effects after even a single treatment. Evidence for the efficacy of neuromodulation abounds in fMRI, LORETA, and EEG mechanistic studies and clinical double-blind, randomly-controlled medical, psychological, and dentistry studies.
We offer treatments and rentals using both types of devices:
- The Alpha-Stim AID Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulator for anxiety, insomnia, and depression
- The Alpha-Stim M, Microcurrent & Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulator, which adds an additional frequency and delivery methods for managing and treating pain to the Alpha-Stim AID experience.
Please call the office or email Allison to learn more about this innovative and effective treatment modality and the costs involved.
