What is CES
CES, cranial electrotherapy stimulation, is a therapeutic procedure using mild battery-powered electronic stimulation for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
The stimulation is applied using ear clips or electrodes attached to the ear lobes. Usually, the patient experiences the electrical stimulation as a gentle tingling sensation, although sometimes no sensation is felt.
CES is typically administered once a day for 30-60 minutes, though frequency of usage may vary depending on the patient’s needs and condition. Positive results may be experienced immediately, though for some, it takes up to three or four weeks. For lasting benefits, treatment should be continued at regular intervals, or on an as-needed basis.
