Safe and Effective
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is a cranial electrotherapy stimulation device that works by gently stimulating the brain to produce serotonin - the same neurochemical that is increased by antidepressant medication. Increasing serotonin, which is responsible for healthy mood and sleep, allows our device to successfully treat multiple symptoms. The stimulation feels pleasant during the 20-minute treatment session and leaves the patient feeling calm and relaxed.
Preferred by Top Hospitals and Psychiatrists
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® was designed to be used at home but is also preferred by many top hospitals, clinics and treatment centers. It is approved for use in 11 of New York City's largest hospitals, including Bellevue Hospital and Metropolitan Hospital. Over 1500 board-certified psychiatrists prescribe the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® to their patients.
Similar to how pharmaceutical drugs must be FDA-Approved to enter the market, medical devices must be FDA-Cleared. The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is FDA-Cleared for the treatment of depression, as well as the related symptoms of anxiety and insomnia. The device may be used safely in conjunction with any medication and has been proven to be safe and effective in multiple published studies. Watch the video in the How It Works section (below) to see how easy it is to use.
Improve Sleep Quality
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is capable of significantly improving sleep quality and is cleared by the FDA for the treatment of insomnia. If you do not suffer from insomnia and only use the device to treat depression or anxiety, you may still experience improvement in sleep quality. Use the device for 20 minutes before bedtime if you want to get to sleep quickly, sleep through the night and wake up fully refreshed. The device is able to treat insomnia in addition to depression and anxiety because it stimulates the brain's production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates both mood and sleep.
Not a Sedative
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is not a sedative - it works by reducing anxiety and improving neurochemical production that improves sleep quality. In published studies, most patients experience improvement in sleep quality during the first week of daily use.
The Best Alternative to Sleep Medication
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is often prescribed as an alternative to Ambien or other sleep medication. Special Forces soldiers have used the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® to eliminate dependency on sleep medication. The device is preferred by hospitals, treatment centers and sleep doctors because it eliminates sleep disturbance without causing the side effects of sleep medication.
Effective Anxiety Relief
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is cleared by the FDA for the treatment of anxiety. By using the device for 20 minutes, twice a day, most patients are able to reduce or eliminate anxiety within the first week or two, including symptoms associated with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. The device treats anxiety by stimulating the brain's production of serotonin, GABA, beta-endorphins and other neurotransmitters that help reduce anxiety. The stimulation feels pleasant during the 20-minute treatment session, often causing the patient to feel immediately relaxed.
The device is non-addictive and may be used safely in conjunction with medication or as a stand alone therapy. It causes no serious side effects and has been proven to be safe and effective in multiple published studies.
Advanced Pain Relief
Although the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is used on the head to treat depression, anxiety and insomnia, it is used on the body to treat pain. The device is cleared by the FDA for the symptomatic relief of chronic intractable pain (pain that has persisted for at least 3 months), post-traumatic acute pain (pain caused by an injury) and post-surgical pain. Conditions that qualify to be treated include: Fibromyalgia, Arthritis / Osteoarthritis, Nerve Pain / Neuropathy, Lower Back Pain, Post-Injury Joint Pain and Abdominal Pain.
Many private insurance companies reimburse patients for the purchase of the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® when it is prescribed for pain. The device may be used in conjunction with any medication, causes no serious side effects and has been proven to be safe and effective in multiple published studies.
Consistent Use is Important
In published studies, most patients report a noticeable reduction in depression symptoms within the first two weeks of twice-daily use. If the device does not reduce or eliminate your symptoms within two weeks, you may increase the stimulation setting from Level 2 to Level 4. Once symptoms are eliminated, you may begin using the device on a maintenance basis, several times a week, or on an "as needed" basis. If the device does not reduce or eliminate your symptoms, you may return it for a full refund (within 60 days of receipt).
How to Purchase a Device
You may purchase a device through this website. Before we can ship a device within the United States, the FDA requires that we first receive faxed or emailed medical authorization or a prescription from your doctor or other licensed healthcare practitioner (nurse, psychologist, therapist, chiropractor or acupuncturist). You may also obtain convenient over-the-phone authorization. If you live in Canada or Europe, no medical authorization or prescription is required.
Doctor & Patient Testimonials
Does it work? Columbia University psychiatrist Richard P. Brown says he has used the device with 400 severely depressed patients and that more than 70% find relief -- about twice the rate of anti-depressants."

I have used the Fisher Wallace Stimulator for several years to control pain. I have Sjogren’s Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I use it twice a day. If I forget to use it, I am reminded because I feel severe pain. I cannot recommend this machine enough. This kind of pain relief is very important, as it has no side effects and it is really effective.

I have had great success using the device to treat severe, chronic insomnia in patients who are resistant to pharmacotherapy. Also, patients who seek a drug-free alternative to treat insomnia have used the Fisher Wallace Stimulator to reduce or eliminate their dependence on prescription drugs.
