Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is a device that helps treat depression, anxiety and insomnia. Clinically proven in multiple published studies, the device can be used with or without medication.
Clinical studies show that depression is often linked to an imbalance of certain chemicals in the brain. One of these chemicals is called serotonin – often referred to as the body’s mood stabilizer because it controls happiness and anxiety.

Fisher Wallace Stimulator – It delivers a gentle electrical pulse that stimulates the brain to produce serotonin and other chemicals required for healthy mood and sleep.
It features small battery-operated electrodes that stimulate serotonin production, while also lowering a stress hormone called cortisol. It is painless and mostly free from side effects. While some people may feel a slight tingling or massaging sensation, many people feel nothing at all.
To treat depression and anxiety, patients wear the device for 20 minutes per day while resting or going about normal activities. To treat insomnia, the device can be used within two hours before bedtime. It’s that simple.
Many patients do not feel the stimulation at all, while some may feel a mild tingling at the sponge contact sites.
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® works by gently stimulating your brain to produce certain naturally occurring chemicals that improve mood. One of these chemicals is serotonin, known as the body’s mood regulator. The Stimulator also promotes alpha waves, which have a calming effect on the body. Additionally, the device helps to lower cortisol, your body’s stress hormone. The Stimulator treats insomnia but is not a sedative – instead, the device helps your brain produce a restful state that accelerates sleep onset and enables longer periods of sleep.
Neurostimulation devices such as the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® are cleared by the FDA for the treatment of insomnia, anxiety and depression.
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is not cleared by the FDA for the treatment of depression, anxiety or insomnia. tDCS was FDA approved in 2004 for Iontophoresis, which is a noninvasive method to deliver medicine or other chemicals through the skin with external patches and a small electrical charge. Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is not typically an at-home treatment modality, and as a result, can be very expensive because it often requires office visits and doctor supervision during treatment sessions. Insurance companies will not reimburse patients for purchasing or using tDCS for “off label” uses such as the treatment of depression.
