CES instrument (cranial electrotherapy stimulator) offers a non-drug therapy for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and insomnia. CES has been used in numerous countries around the world for over 30 years. It involves the application of mild microcurrent electrical impulses to the head via electrodes applied behind the ears or by means of ear-clip electrodes.
CES should be used under direction of a licensed health care practitioner. Individual results will vary, but many patients report significant improvement of their Stress-Related Symptoms over a period of 2 to 3 weeks daily use. Following the initial series of CES Ultra applications, the device may be used on occasion as needed to maintain the achieved level of improvements. Normally, CES is used once or twice daily for 30 minutes per session or longer if desired.

The CES Ultra™ is very easy and safe to use. Read the manual completely before operating the unit. Note the safety precautions and the discussion of those who should not use the CES Ultra, for example, if you have a pace maker.Unpacking the CES Ultra™
The CES Ultra™ is an electro cranial stimulation device. It comes with a 9–volt battery, a small white bottle with saline solution, ear clips and self–adhesive sensors.A 9–volt battery comes with each CES Ultra™ unit. You can also use rechargeables.When the battery is properly installed, a light will appear when the unit is turned on.To remove the battery pull the red ribbon up firmly and the battery will pop out.Attaching the leads.
There is only one way to attach the leads to the CES Ultra™ unit. Plug the leads into the front of the device. If the leads don’t go in easily, don’t force them. If you try to jam the leads in they may become damaged. Turn the leads around and insert them in the opposite way.
There are two sets of leads. One is for the ear clips and the other is for the self–adhesive soft gel pads. Use either the ear clips or the self–adhesive electrodes, not both. Read the manual for instructions on how to use each of the leads and sensors and check the hook up chart that comes with the manual.
Ear clips or self–adhesive soft gel pads are used to slightly stimulate the vagus nerve. This nerve goes into the oldest part of the brain called the “reptilian brain”. This stimulation quickly stabilizes the equilibrium of the central nervous system. No electricity goes into the brain at all.
If the self–adhesive electrode gel pads become too sticky or tacky, wet you finger and rub it over the electrode. It’s important that the electrodes don’t become too wet. If the self–adhesive electrodes lose their stickiness altogether, place them in the refrigerator.
Follow the instructions in the manual for attaching the ear clips to the leads. A small white bottle comes with the CES Ultra™ to use with saline solution. The saline solution helps the conductivity of the ear clips. You can refill the bottle with water and add a small amount of salt. Note: Most users find that they do not need to use saline.Put a small drop of saline solution on the cushion pad of each ear clip. Place the cushion side on the top of the ear lobe. Place one ear clip on each ear lobe and adjust the clips until they are comfortable. If the ear clips feel tight move them to another part of the ear lobe. Don’t place them at the top of the ear.
Place one drop of saline solution on the cushion of each ear clip every 30 minutes, or when dry to the touch.
Self–Adhesive Electrode Gal Pads
If the self–adhesive electrode gel pads are preferred read the instructions in the manual to see how to attach them using the other set of leads. Use the manual and the chart to see where the self–adhesive electrode gel pads are placed on the skin behind each ear lobe.If the self–adhesive electrode gel pads aren’t sticking to the skin, wet a finger slightly and rub it over the electrode. It’s important that the electrodes don’t become too wet. If the electrodes are too wet place them in the refrigerator with the black side facing up.
Operating the CES Ultra™
Insert the battery at the base of the unit. Once the ear clips or self–adhesive electrodes are in place turn the CES Ultra™ on. Turn the knob at the top clockwise. A light will come on. Continue to turn the knob slowly to the right until you feel a tingling sensation on one or both of your ear lobes or under one of both of the self–adhesive electrodes.Turn the knob back down just below the tingling. You don’t want to feel the tingling during a session. If you don’t feel any tingling at all, turn the knob clockwise all the way to the right. If tingling occurs during a session turn the knob down until the tingling stops.
Positive results can be experienced almost immediately, though for some it may require longer. For lasting benefits, the CES Ultra™ should be continued at intervals on an as–needed basis.
Setting the timer
To set the timer press the small black button in the center, to the right of the green yellow and red buttons. This will change the settings. If the time settings don’t change, turn the unit off and then on again.If the unit is set for 30 or 45 minutes, it will stop automatically after 30 or 45 minutes, even if you’re asleep. It’s important to use the battery charger and rechargeable batteries. A single batter in the charger, or two, will table about two hours to charge.
The CES Ultra™ is portable and fits easily into a pocket. The CES Ultraä can be used as many times as needed during the day or week. The CES Ultra™ a can be used while doing any activity – driving the car, watching TV, at the computer, reading, at a desk, doing homework – anywhere and any activity. The unit should not be used in water.
CES Ultra™ is safe to use the while sleeping because when set for 30 or 45 minutes it will turn itself off automatically. However, be cautious, because even though the session ends, the battery is still on and you may wake up with a dead battery.
Using the ‘Continuous’ setting is not recommended because you may forget its running and you may also run the risk of draining the battery. Even though it stops running itself automatically, the unit still needs to be turned off to keep the battery from draining.
The CES Ultra™ is safe and easy to use
The CES Ultra™ is completely non–invasive, safe and easy to use. Positive results can be experienced almost immediately, though for some it may take longer. Be patient.
When first using the CES Ultra™ set the timer for 30 or 45 minutes. Press the small black button to change the time settings.
For quicker results use the unit for 3 hours a day, or longer, for two to six weeks, or until symptoms disappear.
How Often Do I Use the CES Ultra™?
You can set the CES Ultra for 30 or 45 minutes. Press the small black button to change the time setting. If the unit is set for 30 or 45 minutes, it will stop automatically after 30 or 45 minutes, even if you’re asleep. If you fall asleep while using the unit you may run the risk of draining the battery. Using the ‘Continuous’ setting is not recommended because you may forget its running and you may also run the risk of draining the battery. Even though it stops running itself automatically, the unit still needs to be turned off to keep the battery from draining.
The CES Ultra™ is completely non–invasive and safe to use no matter how often you use it.
When first using the CES Ultra™ do three 45 minute sessions a day. Some symptoms disappear quickly and others may take longer. Be patient.
The CES Ultra™ can also be used for longer periods of time, for example it can be use 3 – 6 hours a day, or even continuously without any danger, for the first two to three weeks after which time the frequency may be reduced.
Positive results can be experienced almost immediately.
The CES Ultra™ is typically used two to three times a day for 45 minutes over a period of several weeks. When symptoms disappear the frequency may be reduced.
It is completely safe and positive results can be experienced almost immediately, though for some it may require longer. For lasting benefits, the CES Ultra™ should be continued at intervals on an as–needed basis. It is compact and portable and can be used anywhere and at any time.
The CES Ultra™ can also be used for longer periods of time. For quicker results it can be used for 3 hours a day, or longer, for the first two weeks. The unit can actually be used for any amount of time each day without any danger or side affects.
