Has Anyone Ever Heard Of Using An Alpha-Stim Machine To Treat Anxiety And Depression?

Has Anyone Ever Heard Of Using An Alpha-Stim Machine To Treat Anxiety And Depression?

I have one from a car accident about 10 years ago. I got it for pain but it can also be used to treat depression. I was just wondering if anyone else had ever heard of it.

I got it after a car accident for pain, I dug it out because I have been having a lot of back pain and read that it can be useful for anxiety and depression. Planning to talk to my doctor about it at my next visit, When I looked it up on line in ranged from about $750 to $1100. I got mine through a physical therapist.

I know my therapist uses something similar to a tens unit that attaches just to my ears. He only does it on real bad days. There is something else he is looking at trying that is to help me with physical pain, sound similar to a tens unit as well. Something we noticed is I get trapped in a cycle between physical pain/health and mental. Once I try pulling out of depression my physical pain or another health problem increases and then brings me back into depression. Do you think this is the same?

It is similar to a Tens, but also very different. It has the pad like a Tens but they have to be position differently. Then there are clips that hook yo your ears for depression and anxiety.
