Happy May, friends!

I’ll admit – I love spring and all it’s beauty, but it also seems to become another time of year when life really ramps up! The days are getting longer and if you’re like me, your list of to-dos is getting longer too! I love the activity and energy of spring and summer, but sometimes it does take a toll on my mood and sleep patterns.

I know that for many of you, this is not a new story. Millions of us struggle with poor quality sleep and emotional struggles like anxiety, depression, and the general blahs. Over time, these inconvenient “issues” start to really affect our daily routines, our relationships, and our zest for life. You deserve to really live life every moment – and that’s why I’ve dedicated a huge part of my practice as an acupuncturist to helping solve these problems for my dear sleep-deprived, anxious, stressed-out patients!

Recently, my way of treating insomnia, stress, and anxiety has taken a BIG leap. I discovered a new technology that I know will change the game for so many of my patients. My amazing find? The Alpha-Stim. I am so excited to share this with you and help you jump back into your best life.

What is the Alpha-Stim?

The Alpha-Stim is a non-invasive, pain-free, natural tool that can be used to help manage and heal a wide variety of health issues. Considering my own clinical experience, I am most excited about using the Alpha-Stim with my patients that suffer insomnia, anxiety, depression, pain, and stress. I think there is a huge realm of possibility with the new device, especially when used in conjunction with Chinese medicine to tackle the root of the issues and return the body and brain to a state of balance.

The Alpha-Stim works by using a special, exclusive microcurrent waveform to affect the cells of the body. This waveform helps to reduce the experience of pain and relax the mind. Alpha waves are the brain waves that occur in the mind during meditation, and the Alpha-Stim recreates this blissful state in the mind. This is a powerful method, because when the mind is in an alpha state there is reduced pain, anxiety, depression, and stress. The mind is also more susceptible to healing and rejuvenation in an alpha state.

Although the Alpha-Stim has the ability to stop pain and anxiety in the moment, it also has a long-term benefit. Consistent use of the Alpha-Stim, much like acupuncture, will create a compound healing effect and the potential for full relief from pain, emotional distress, and insomnia. Although I have just found this amazing resource, the Alpha-Stim has been researched and tested by practitioners and patients for over 30 years!

The Alpha-Stim’s Super Powers

For such a simple and easy treatment, the Alpha-Stim has a ton of potential. Because it works with the brain on an electrochemical level, there is a wide range of use. Our nervous system is so integral to our health and emotions, and the Alpha-Stim gives us a safe way to take back our control.
My mission as an acupuncturist is to help my patients find true health – and I believe it starts here in the nervous system. From the brain to our gut-brain, our physical bodies to our emotional ones, the paired Alpha-Stim and acupuncture team have a lot to offer. Here are a few of the conditions I am most excited to conquer with Alpha-Stim:


I see a lot of chronic and stubborn insomnia with my patients and have long been on the lookout for a way to make a massive and lasting difference. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can be lifesavers, but some cases just don’t seem to budge. That is why I am so excited about the Alpha-Stim; it could be the nudge that makes all the difference in these frustrating cases.

Unfortunately, there are not many safe ways for insomnia sufferers to find relief. Sleep aids are addictive and sometimes come with a slew of side-effects. Some may turn to alcohol or recreational drugs to fall asleep, while others endure the aggravating restlessness and make due with only a couple hours of sleep per night. Sleep is one of the most important determinants of our health and an important starting place for a holistic approach to wellness.

The Alpha-Stim can do wonders for insomnia. When tested against sleep aids like Lunesta and Sonata, the Alpha-Stim blew them out of the water with 84% effectiveness over 56 and 68% respectively. That’s huge! The best part (other than some much-deserved shut-eye!) is that there are no harmful side-effects, drowsiness, or addiction associated with the Alpha-Stim. Treatments are simple and can actually help to teach the brain healthy sleep-wake cycles, rather than acting as a Band-Aid to the problem.

Mood Balance

Mood and emotional balance is always a hot topic in my clinic. As a society, we are stressed-out, overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, and generally unhappy. That alone makes me sad! While I am always trying to help my patients find lifestyle habits and tricks (like gratitude practices, meditation, and healthy gut diets) to manage their mood holistically, we all need a little extra help sometimes. The results that the Alpha-Stim has had on improving mood, sense of well-being, relaxation, and outlook have been very encouraging.

When used to help reduce anxiety, the Alpha-Stim has shown to be a potential substitute for prescription drugs. In fact, studies show that the Alpha-Stim performs just as well, if not slightly better, than the commonly prescribed Xanax. The difference is the approach to treating anxiety. With the Alpha-Stim, we are addressing the electrochemical balance of the brain with electricity, rather than chemicals. This offers a safe, effective, and side-effect-free option for those who suffer mood imbalance.

Chronic Pain

Pain rarely travels alone; sleep troubles, irritability, weakness, fatigue, and depression are all common symptoms that seem to tag along with pain wherever it goes. This phenomenon only gets worse with chronic, long-standing, sometimes unexplained pain conditions.

Chronic pain has a lot to do with not so much injury, but brain communication gone awry. After time, the body continues to send signals which we interpret as pain in our brains. It’s almost like a song stuck on repeat. Managing the brain’s neural signaling system can help to relieve this pain response, calm the mind, and improve all those other tricky symptoms that were tagging along.

The Alpha-Stim and acupuncture shine here because of their strong ability to rewire brain signals and return the brain to a calm and meditative state. In fact, the Alpha-Stim outperformed both Oxytocin and Vicodin in a trial measuring pain relief. This is a major win, especially considering the opioid epidemic and the side effects and addictiveness related to pain killers.

See for Yourself!

One of the most rewarding experiences for me as a practitioner – and a human in general! – is to see someone overcome debilitating anxiety, decrease their stress, and get an amazing night’s sleep night after night. As a mom and business owner, I know the power of a good rest and a calm mind. It’s lifechanging!

Now that I’ve found this tool that can expedite the healing process and have an instantly beneficial effect, I can’t wait to start tracking the amazing results in my clinic. This is the perfect opportunity for someone who has suffered chronic, unrelenting insomnia, mild or severe anxiety, overwhelming stress, or nagging chronic pain. If that sounds like you, I’d love to help you supercharge your healing and find that happy, relaxed person that’s hiding under stress and sleep-deprivation.
