Cranial Electric Stimulation (CES)

Depression

CES is a noninvasive procedure that has been used for decades in the United States to treat anxiety, depression, and insomnia in the general population. CES is therapy that a person can do at home. Although there are studies that show CES was helpful in generalized anxiety and OCD (Feusner, Kerwin et al., 2008), the test had a small number of patients, and in future tests it did not show any more difference than the placebo for depression (Carel, Eugster et al., 2009).
