Microcurrent Treatments with the Alpha-Stim®

I'm a certified practitioner in microcurrent treatments and use the device to treat pain and injury and also stress, anxiety and other psychological symptoms and disorders.

Microcurrent is a pain-free non-invasive treatment that uses a specially developed frequency to pass through the tissue and alleviate pain and promote healing.

Unlike TENS the effects of microcurrent treatments persist after treatment and are also cumulative, allowing you to quickly return to your athletic activity or everyday life.

Treatments for Pain and Injury

By using microcurrent on injury or pain clients can experience rapid relief that persists after treatment.

The treatment involves the use of a pain-free frequency waves being passed through the tissue between probes that sequentially placed around the affected area.

The frequency is not noticed but the effects are cumulative and can speed recovery.

Unlike TENS or ultrasound the waveform doesn't simply cut the pain signals or work to numb the pain but the frequency of the wave serves to promote healing and reduce pain by working in stimulate or enhance the natural currents of the body.

The sessions will often include other soft tissue work such as myofascial release to enhance recovery and a return to activity. As the treatments are part of the overall therapy session they are bespoke and can include other treatment modalities such as acupuncture and exercise routines.

Microcurrent is therefore great for many muscular-skeletal problems such as:

  • Back Pain
  • Injury
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • TMD
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Migraines
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Scars
  • Immediate Pitch-Side Care

Treatments for Psychological Conditions

Whether you suffer attacks of anxiety before the game, insomnia on the build up to events or depression and chronic anxiety in your daily life then microcurrent treatments can help.

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) uses a painless frequency to interact with and positively affect the Hypothalamus and brain stem leading to a reduction in anxiety, insomnia and depression.

The treatment is pain-free and relaxing with affects often felt straight after the first session.

CES has been shown to have great impacts on:

  • Trait Anxiety
  • State Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Panic Disorder
  • OCD
  • Cognitive Problems such as ADHD

I will often combine treatments with breathing exercises or meditation and sessions can be tailored to the individual and their needs.

CES can easily be combined with ongoing psychological therapies such as CBT and this is encouraged.
