Alpha-Stim is a handheld medical device that relieves stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

Its therapeutic abilities have been acclaimed by healthcare professionals and patients worldwide and effectiveness has been repeatedly verified through more clinical studies than with any other device in its class.
Since 1977 BainUltra has been manufacturing therapeutic bathtubs with Hydro-Thermo Massage (the unique combination of air, water and heat). The original concept was engineered with the help of an osteopath seeking new ways of helping his patients. Customers have found that BainUltra bathtubs contribute to improving relaxation, health and well-being on a number of physical, mental and emotional levels.
Stress Mastery Questionnaire (SMQ)
The SMQ is a valid and reliable stress “risk” assessment tool that can be adapted to any stress management or wellness program. The SMQ was created using standard psychometric test development methodology and subsequently validated through a rigorous year-long study supported by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (N.I.O.S.H.). It is one of only a few scientifically developed stress risk assessment tools currently available and is recognized as the “gold standard” for use in stress management training, coaching and personal self-development programs.
So many things in our lives can affect our health. Stress is one factor that can cause our mental and physical health to break down. The American Institute of Stress recommends taking brief breaks each hour whenever possible – and to more fully wind down your mind and body every few hours by taking a 15-minute break. Watching Stress-Less TV is the new way to turn on and tune out. The side effects? Enhanced feelings of well-being, more energy, less muscle tension and a greater resilience to stressful events. So tune-in today and start feeling the way you should when your mind is rested, recharged and ready to take on the world.
