Transcranial Electrical Stimulation | TES
What is Transcranial Electrical Stimulation?
Transcranial Electrical Stimulation, or TES, is a noninvasive stimulation of the brain to alter and improve brain function. Normally, two rubber electrodes will be placed on the forehead and a small electric current will pass between them through the skull and the underlying cortex. Specific areas of the brain can be targetted through placing the electrodes on different areas of the scalp and forehead.
What does Transcranial Electrical Stimulation help with?
Transcranial Electrical Stimulation helps to “reset” your brain function, thus restoring your brain’s natural rhythm. Over time, stress and particularly traumatic events can wreak havoc on your brain’s natural functioning and abilities, potentially leaving it in fight-or-flight mode (right-side brain imbalance) or in a numb state known as the freeze response (left-side brain imbalance). TES can help reset and re-balance your brain so it returns to more efficient functioning.
How many sessions of Transcranial Electrical Stimulation will I need?
You will feel a positive difference in the way you feel even after one session, but we recommend continuously getting “tune-ups” as your cognition will only continue to get better and more optimised with each session. Any imbalances will heal further with each session of TES.
Stress's Impact on the Brain
-With its two different hemispheres, the brain is usually able to stay balanced and not tip too far to the left or right. However, when a person experiences ongoing or severe amounts of stress, it can have very damaging effects on the brain and leave imbalances. As we experience trauma, the natural abilities of the brain start to decrease and become less effective, leaving our minds unable to relax or find balance and peace.
Freeze Response and
Fight or Flight Response
When our brain experiences severe stress and trauma, it can have a devastating impact. This can leave the brain suffering with either a left-side or right-side imbalance. A left-side imbalance produces a “numb” state, as a way of shielding itself and therefore “feeling” less. This is called the freeze response. On the other end of the spectrum, there is a right-side imbalance, which causes the brain to always want to either face up to or run away from a threat, which is known as the fight-or-flight response. Being constantly stuck in this anxiety state can wreak havoc on the brain, especially over longer periods of time.

Trauma and ongoing stress can have very negative impacts on the brain. Do not fret, though! There are ways of resetting the brain so that it can recover and go back to its optimal functioning. Transcranial Electrical Stimulation is a non-invasive treatment that can help with this. You will leave after the treatment feeling refreshed and more relaxed, and the brain will be optimised over time with each “tune up” treatment.
VR Therapy has proven effective in treating anxiety disorders (including generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety and agoraphobia), PTSD and depression. It even has proven useful in treating the anxiety that is associated with paranoid schizophrenia.
NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a must-have molecule in the body.
It is identified as an essential molecule which helps to maintain energy levels, cell functioning and overall health.
