There is a Way!
1 in stock (can be backordered)
Meet the Oasis Pro, a CES (Cranio-Electro Stimulation) handle-held device that is easy-to-use and portable. This pharmaceutical-free method improves health, memory, sleep, mental functioning, mood and cognition, as well as relieves pain.
The Oasis Pro is unique in a number of ways. It is one of the more advanced CES machines on the market and the only one that is programmable. Therefor the user can design their own CES session by frequency selection, intensity and length of treatment. There is evidence to show that CES devices can perform brain training at specific frequencies, with different benefits depending on the frequency chosen. For example, a user may choose the Delta brainwave frequency found in deep sleep to encourage relaxation, or the Beta brainwave to encourage calm alertness. The Oasis Pro also features session monitor, alerting the user if the electrical flow is poor, as well as reducing the intensity of CES at the end of a session (The Soft Off™ feature) rather than simply turning off. Research suggests this allows the brain a better chance to integrate and retain the CES results.
There are many "underground" instruments on the market, particularly on the Internet. Contrary to their anecdotal claims, most have no scientific evidence behind them. Many are nothing more than low-cost pulse generators of dubious quality and have not been fully evaluated for either efficacy or safety. They are not registered with the FDA. The Oasis Pro is registered with the FDA as a medical device and has significant medical research supporting its usage to relieve anxiety, depression, and improve focus and attention for those with ADD/ADHD.
About Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES)
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation uses a low power electrical current to stimulate the brain to restore and re-balance the various neurohormones. This has been shown to give especially great results for anxiety and insomnia. CES has been a relatively unknown and underused technology due to the fundamental Western bias in favor of pharmaceuticals.
Because the only source of current for Oasis Pro is a common nine-volt battery, its intensity is limited to 1.5 milliamps - what you would use to operate a small toy or penlight. CES has an excellent safety record. Clinical research over the past 50 years has shown that CES calms the mind, boosts relaxation, helps with sleep, relieves pain and has virtually no side effects or contraindications. It is registered and regulated by the FDA.

An excerpt from the article:
"There is ample physiological evidence showing the effects of CES on the brain and why the clinical applications are widely varied. The best part of CES is that it is easy to use, the efficacy is quite high and the equipment is fairly inexpensive. CES is well proven and should be part of the therapeutic “tool chest” of all clinicians working with generalized cognitive challenges, affective disorders and pain, including prophylactic, acute and chronic applications."

“I love this device! I am a 61 year old woman and have really bad fibromyalgia and the worst insomnia of anyone I’ve ever talked with, or that my doctor has ever seen. I push myself to do all I can, but it has been a real struggle just to stay alive. Within two days of starting CES, I started waking up at 7 AM! I work in the yard or other projects most of the morning. I rest for a couple of hours, then I go back to work. My depression has lifted, I’m enthusiastic about life, after being bored to tears with everything for years. I have had people over for dinner. I’m sleeping much more deeply, so I only seem to need 7 hours of sleep, whereas when I did sleep I would spend 10 hours asleep but never feel rested. It has been an amazing transformation. I am ordering one for my sister and another for my niece. Thank you for carrying this product at a reasonable price.“
– Karen George
“The Oasis Pro is a life-saver for me. I have fibromyalgia, migraines, and PTSD; I know my brain/pain signals frequently are not functioning as they should. My chiropractor recommended this device, and I’m so glad he did. It’s compact, easy to use, and very versatile. With the Oasis Pro, I’m able to calm anxiety that is spiraling out of control; I can encourage my body to sleep; and I can lower head and neck pain. At the time of this writing, there’s not any other home-use item offered anywhere else for such a low price.“
– Grateful Patient
“This device has really worked for me, especially in terms of sleep, mental clarity, and anxiety. I absolutely recommend it.“
Q: What is CES? Why haven’t I heard more about it?
A: CES stands for Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation. It is the process of using low power electrical current to stimulate the brain to restore and re-balance the various neurohormones. This has been shown to give especially great results for anxiety and insomnia. However, CES has been a relatively unknown and underused technology due to the fundamental Western bias in favor of pharmaceuticals.
Within the last ten years we have come to better understand the connection between brain function, neurotransmitters, and electrical stimulation. As our knowledge of this area continues to expand and new research findings emerge, so too will the popularity and increased usage of CES.
Q: Is CES safe?
A: CES has an excellent safety record. Published literature in the U.S. and abroad reports virtually no negative side effects or major contraindications from its use. The National Research Council has deemed CES to be “a non-significant risk modality.” It is registered and regulated by the FDA as a safe device. Because the only source of current for Oasis Pro is a common nine-volt battery, its intensity is limited to 1.5 milliamps – what you would use to operate a small toy or penlight. Even the unit’s maximum intensity has been shown to be safe.
Q: Do I need a prescription to get a CES Machine?
A: Yes, a prescription consult is included with your kit. Please place your order and a representative from Dr. Diane will call you.
Q: How does it work?
A: The Oasis Pro is used by attaching leads to the ears to pass the current through the head. The current is very low and most users report feeling nothing, or a slight tingling. Like aspirin and many other agents that affect the brain, CES’ exact physiological mechanism is unknown. Researchers believe that CES works by indirectly stimulating tissue in the brain’s hypothalamic area. This causes the brain to manufacture various neurohormones, restoring its state to pre-stress homeostasis and encouraging a state of calm in the whole body.
Q: How is the current transmitted?
A: You have two options: You can either place pre-gelled electrodes below each ear (after plugging the electrodes’ wires into the unit’s jack), or you can attach ear-clips, fitted with conductive electrodes, to your earlobes.
Q: How is the Oasis Pro different from other CES units?
A: The Oasis stands out as an advanced CES device. It is significantly more sophisticated than most CES machines on the market. It offers the standard frequency of 100 Hz, useful for increasing serotonin to relieve anxiety. But the Oasis Pro also offers a set of other frequencies for different results. For example, practitioners can use a frequency of .5-3 Hz, shown to increase endorphins to relieve pain.
The Oasis Pro is also the only programmable CES machine on the market. When you purchase the Oasis Pro, it comes with a set of standard sessions, which run a specific frequency (like 100Hz) for a specific amount of time. You have the option of purchasing software that allows you to tailor each session to you, changing the time or the specific frequency of the CES session for particular goals. For those interested in brain-wave entrainment, the Oasis Pro is programmable to many different brainwave frequencies, and there is data that suggests that CES technology can be used for brainwave entrainment.
The Oasis Pro has a Soft Off™ feature that slowly reduces the intensity of CES at the end of a session, rather than simply turning off like most CES machines. Research suggests this allows the brain a better chance to integrate and retain the CES results.The Oasis Pro senses the quality of the electrical flow and will inform you if there is poor current flow so you can adjust the electrodes and not waste your time.
Last, but not least, the Oasis Pro is the only CES device on the market that can perform Microcurrent Electro Therapy (MET) and Transcranial DC Stimulation. For more information on these optional additions to the Oasis Pro see below: www.mindalive.com.
There are many “underground” instruments on the market, particularly on the Internet. Contrary to their anecdotal claims, most have no scientific evidence behind them. Many are nothing more than low-cost pulse generators of dubious quality and have not been fully evaluated for either efficacy or safety. They are not registered with the FDA. The Oasis Pro is registered with the FDA as a medical device and has significant medical research supporting its usage to relieve anxiety, depression, and improve focus and attention for those with ADD/ADHD.
Q: Is the Oasis Pro registered with the FDA?
A. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes CES as a treatment for anxiety, depression and sleep (serotonin effect) and registers the Oasis Pro as a medical CES device.
Q: What is it like to use the Oasis Pro?
A: Most people find CES a pleasurable experience. The most you will ever feel is a gentle tingling sensation that you can control by simply lowering the amperage (power) of the CES current. Increasing or decreasing the amplitude does not affect how efficient the treatment is for you. Research shows that CES operates effectively at both lower and higher levels of stimulation, even at a level so low that you can’t feel a thing. A common approach is to turn the amplitude to the point of sensation, turn it down slightly below that point, and leave it there for the remainder of the session. Your own comfort level always dictates the amplitude.
Q: Is CES user-friendly?
A: Yes. The Oasis Pro is very easy to use. All you need to do is:
- 1. Attach either the ear-clips to your earlobes or the electrodes to your neck just below your ear
- 2. Insert the lead-wire into the unit’s jack
- 3. Turn the unit on and select the specific pre-programmed session you wish to run
Q: What immediate results can I expect?
A: Most people experience results almost immediately after treatment. Others notice a response after several days. The relaxed-but-alert state usually remains for an average of 12 to 72 hours after the first few sessions. With regular use, it’s possible for the patient to habituate to this preferred state of consciousness. The device should be used daily for three to four weeks before making a decision regarding its effectiveness.
Q: How does CES affect sleep?
A: CES has been approved and has well-researched benefits for the treatment of insomnia. Within the first day or two, you should notice that your sleep patterns begin to normalize, with fewer and shorter periods of awakening during the night. You’ll enjoy going to sleep more quickly after you retire for the night and a greater feeling of being rested when you awake in the morning. CES users often report an increase in vivid dreaming, resulting from compensation for lost REM sleep. Buts sleep patterns normalize — within the next two or three nights — this should become less frequent.
Q: What additional long-range changes should I expect?
A: Oasis Pro users report that depression and mood swings become less frequent, as do irrational anger, irritability, and poor impulse control. You’ll find mental confusion due to stress begin to subside. Your ability to focus and concentrate on work will become easier and more efficient, with visibly enhanced cognitive processing. Most find that the Oasis Pro helps the body to calm and stay in a state of relaxed alertness. Anxiety tends to have less ability to take root and unbalance us. As these changes take place, CES users report greater ability to enjoy the day and quickly, effectively respond to stressful situations with ease.
Q: When should the CES be used?
A: You can use the Oasis Pro when you awaken in the morning, prior to going to bed at night, and/or during the day in particular situations. You can use it both as an adjunct to meditation each morning or during stressor moments that occur unexpectedly in the course of a day – those times when you “lose it.”
Using the unit in those situations – even for as little as ten minutes – can help curb anxiety. In addition to activating actual bio-electrical changes, it can serve as a reminder that you can be with yourself in a different way – a positive affirmation that you have the power to change your emotional state and are willing to create the time and the space to do so. Ultimately, each person finds for him/herself how best to incorporate CES into one’s daily routine.
Q: How often should CES be used?
A: Use it until the symptoms disappear. Many symptoms will begin to fade after 10 minutes to three days of treatment 1 hr/day. Most will be alleviated by the tenth to fifteenth day of daily treatment, 1 hr/day. Some addiction treatment clinics use it on patients 24 hours/day, and some patients want to self-treat for many hours at a stretch. Use CES as much or as frequently as you like. CES is not addictive, and when the symptoms subside, patients often stop using CES on their own volition.
Q: Where can CES be used?
A: The Oasis Pro is about the size of a cell phone. Clients report using it just about anywhere and under a variety of circumstances. You can use it at home while watching TV, doing the dishes, or at the office while poring over a report. But CES should be treated as more than an aside – as one more task, squeezed in between others. It is an important reminder of the need for inner quiet. Though you need not interrupt your usual activity for CES, its results are generally enhanced by setting aside a special time for its use alone.
Q: What is the suggested length and frequency of treatment?
A: During the first month, the recommended usage is 30 to 45 minutes once or twice daily. Once symptoms are reduced or eliminated entirely, the frequency of treatment may be reduced to two or three times weekly. Individuals undergoing psychiatric treatment or suffering from severe anxiety and extremes of compulsive behavior often benefit from more frequent and prolonged application. When symptoms of depression or anxiety have lessened or disappeared, it is important to have continuous access to the unit as a tool for relapse prevention on an as-needed basis.
Q: What is the warranty on the Oasis Pro?
A: Please see our Satisfaction Guarantee tab above.
Q: How does CES differ from Elecrto-Convulsive Therapy (ECT)?
A: CES and ECT both deliver alternating current to the brain for therapeutic effect, but at vastly different doses. The Oasis Pro provides very gentle stimulation therapy designed for daily home use without doctor supervision – it does not cause a seizure or serious side effects. ECT, while often effective, is performed in a hospital while the patient is under anesthesia and is designed to induce a seizure.
Following are more differences:
ECT delivers 800 – 1000+ mA of electricity, which causes a seizure.
The Oasis Pro delivers 1 – 4 mA of electricity, which does not cause a seizure.
ECT is administered when a patient is under anesthesia.
The Oasis Pro delivers such a mild current that patients typically wears it while reading a book, on the computer or watching TV. The stimulation from this device is rarely perceived and is not uncomfortable.
ECT delivers a large amount of electricity in a single dose.
The Oasis Pro delivers a gentle amount of electricity on a daily basis.
ECT typically costs $30,000 and, while effective initially, its effects wear off.
The Oasis Pro costs $450 and the effects do not wear off when the device is used on a consistent basis.
Q: What is Transcranial DC Stimulation (tDCS)?
A: Transcranial DC Stimulation (tDCS) is the practice of applying direct current (DC) over the scalp with the intention of altering neuronal activity. tDCS is effective in modulating spontaneous neuronal firing. tDCS has been shown to either excite or inhibit the sensory-motor cortex, with the effects lasting over an hour. tDCS is an advanced form of treatment and the additional equipment is only sold to healthcare professionals.
Q: What is Microcurrent Electro Therapy (MET)?
A:MET is an effective and safe way to reduce physical discomfort, or speed healing and recovery. It uses a weak electrical stimulus to encourage cells to heal. The concept of MET is based, in part, on Arndt’s Law, which states that weak stimuli excites physiological activity, medium-strength stimuli encourages it and strong stimuli will suppress it. MET is meant to be used directly along a muscle to break down knots and fatigue in muscle. It is a slow frequency (like CES for pain), but the pulses are short. The standard protocol has been to use a fixed frequency of 0.5 Hz. However, Heffernan (1997) found that randomized stimulation from 0.5-3 Hz produced superior results. Our Oasis Pro uses dual-randomized low-frequency stimulation. It is believed that MET delivered at around 500 micro-amps in the 0.5 to 3 Hz range may be most effective for treating pain.
Q: Can the Oasis Pro perform brainwave entrainment?
A: Many clinicians experience confusion about the various frequencies and wave forms used with CES because some manufacturers create new buzz words for the sake of marketing. CES manufacturers generally use frequencies somewhere in the 0.1 to 40 Hz range and one at 100 Hz However, it’s mainly the electrical nature of CES itself that produces most of the benefits. Frequency has some influence, but a minor amount. As a general guideline, it is believed that CES increases neurotransmitters at any frequency, but it is believed that 100 Hz increases serotonin more and therefore is used to reduce anxiety and depression and to improve sleep, while sub-delta (in the 0.5 to 3 Hz range) increases endorphin’s and therefore is used to reduce pain and promote feelings of well-being.
Recent research involving CES frequency is the discovery that CES may entrain brain waves (Zaehle, Rach, Herrmann, 2010). Although brainwave entrainment research has not been officially done under the label of CES, it has been done with transcranial AC stimulation (tACS). TACS, in the brain wave range, appears to be nothing more than relabeled CES. Given the identical nature of tACS and CES it is likely that CES in the brain wave range has entraining properties.
Q: Are there any contraindications or side effects?
A: Do not use if you have a cardiac pacemaker. The electrical signals may cause the pacer to malfunction, leading to serious injury or death.
Do not use while driving or operating hazardous machinery.
Do not place ear clips or electrodes over skin lesions, new scars, cuts, eruptions or sunburn.
All persons who:
a) suffer from any mental disorder or psychiatric illness
b) are currently using any drugs (prescription or recreational)
c) are under the influence of alcohol
d) have serious head injuries, epilepsy, brain tumors, or strokes
Should not use the Oasis Pro unless under the supervision of a qualified health care provider
For more than 38 years, CES units have been used in hospitals and clinics, thousands have been in use by patients in their homes . No major side effect has been noted or called in to physicians or the FDA from units similar to the CES Oasis Pro device. Less than three percent of CES users report a slight headache. This is usually alleviated by simply turning down the current. If the headache recurs during ordinary use, cease using the unit and consult with your healthcare provider. In 1976 the U.S. National Research Council studied CES at FDA’s request. They determined that no significant risk could be involved in putting such small amounts of current through the head, even over time.
As with the use of any medical device, the physician/licensed practitioner should be informed of any medication or neurotransmiter blockers the patient is taking as well as the employment of cardiac pacemakers or other electronic devices as mentioned above. CES is not a substitute for professional counseling, meditation, or constructive relationships. Used in conjunction with those efforts, CES assists you in attaining a balanced emotional state.
