special electodes either on the ear lobes or the head band across
the frontal bone of the head, the acuscope instrument, when set at appropriate frequencies, will induce a
relaxed concentration in 20 to 30 minutes.
This procedure as known as electro-sleep has been applied successfully by medical specialists ranging from dentists
This procedure is recommended to reduce mental fatique, enhance autonomic stability, improve concentration and as a
general procedure to prepare the patient for treatment including surgery.
This procedure can also be helpful with hyperactive children, depression, insomnia, anxiety, headaches, migraines,
visual distrubances, stimulation of the immune system and head trauma.
Other research investigations demonstrate the promise of Cranial Electrical Stimulation in other lifestyle
stress-related areas as obesity, weight gain, addiction, compulsion, alcohol, cigrattes and drug
detoxification, mood and food disorders.
Unlike drug therapy, there is no dependency, adverse side effects and benefits are sustained for progressively
longer periods of time permitting increased conditioning to behavior modification methods.
The electro-sleep phenonomen occurs when a relaxed state is induced by the transcranial application of low
intensity current such as is produced by the acuscope.
Actually the word electro-sleep is misleading in that patients are not forced into sleep; but rather guided into a
relaxed, conscious state.
Brainwaves, as they are received by an electrode on the
surface of the scalp, are the sum of electro-chemical language passing through a very large group of nerves
situated below the electrode.
Brainwaves have been categorized into four basic levels on the basis of frequency:
Delta, Theta, Alpha and Beta.
The Beta Spectrum
to 30 Hz.) represents relatively unsynchronized activity.
This activity appears to be chaotic. It is associated with normal, outward awareness, for example; taking in,
evaluation and filing away various forms of information received through the senses.
It is usually the state when an individual experiences anger, hunger, anxiety, tension and surprise.
(0.1 to 3.5 Hz.) is opposite to the Beta
spectrum and would be the result of high synchronization. Its slow rate of change is associated with relatively
unconscious states such as deep dreamless sleep.
(7.5 to 14 Hz.) is usually produced as rhythms of steady
frequency and amplitude. It is associated primarily with pleasant inward awareness, a non-drowsy but relaxed state
and a tranquil state of mind.
Outside stimulation usually interrupts this alpha rhythm.
(3.5 to 7.5) level is associated with an access to unconscious material,
drowsiness, fantasy, imagery, dreaming recall, problem solving, inspiration and creativity.
Advanced students of Yoga, Zen and other forms of meditation or inner awareness display an ability to produce
enhanced states such as Alpha and Theta activity.
It is the Alpha and Theta areas that are increased with the use of the Acuscope.
In most cases, after 10 to 30 minutes of treatment, the patient will enter the Theta state. There are a great many
benefits to anyone that uses the Acuscope for this purpose.
One 10 to 30 minute treatment with the Acuscope can replace many hours of rest.
It is common for people to need much less sleep per night. Even if you wanted to continue getting as much sleep per
night as before, patients report that the quality of sleep improves.
Many people find that during the day when they feel stressed, they simply take a
10 to 30 minute electro sleep break which stimulates a long nap.
Cranial Electrical Stimulation has shown positive
results for many kinds of ailments and disorders, including the pain and symptoms associated with the following
Achieve most restful deep sleep and improves sleep disorders
Balance mood control
Increases attention focus and memory
Helps with learning disorders (attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity)
Relieves anxiety and tension
Stressed induced asthma
Stressed induced hives
Gastrointestinal disorders, ulcers
As a treatment for acidity
During drug withdrawal (street drugs, nicotine, prescription drugs)
Chronic fatigue syndrome including fybromyalgia
Prior or after surgery to relieve pain, swelling and tissue and muscle trauma
Helpful in creative work
Helpful in preparing for examinations
Helpful as an accelerated learning tool to memorize blocks of material
Aid to reach peak performance for the athlete readying for competition
