Treating Depression at the source

NeuroStar TMS uses focused magnetic pulses (like an MRI) that revitalize inactive synapses in your brain.9 “Waking up” these connections can have a lasting effect on neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission from Depression a reality for many people.

TMS has been shown to reduce the need for medication and improve symptoms associated with Depression, general anxiety disorder (GAD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

We are uniquely qualified to guide you through the process of tapering off medications, offering a holistic approach to mental health care. With our comprehensive support, you can confidently transition to TMS therapy, knowing that your well-being is our top priority. Take the first step toward a medication-free future and schedule a consultation with us today.

How NeuroStar® TMS Therapy Works

Before Treatment

You’ll recline comfortably in the treatment chair. During each session, a cushioned coil is precisely placed against your head while magnetic pulses deliver the therapy to the correct location that regulates mood in your brain.

You will be awake and alert during the treatment and may resume regular activities immediately afterward.

During Treatment

You may feel a tapping, tingling, or warming sensation where the coil is positioned. This is usually temporary and subsides with subsequent treatments.

After Treatment

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy: Depending on your doctor’s recommendation, each treatment takes as little as 19 minutes. You can resume normal activities immediately. Because there are no effects on alertness or memory, you can drive yourself to and from treatment sessions.

In-office treatment typically takes 19-37 minutes and is administered 5 days a week for approximately 4-6 weeks.*

Non-Depressed

A PET scan measures vital functions such as blood flow, oxygen use and blood sugar (glucose) metabolism.

FAQ's

Transcranial magnetic stimulation, often referred to as TMS, is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when antidepressant medications haven’t been effective, have ceased working, or as an alternative to medication.

More than 16 million Americans experience treatment-resistant depression (TRD). And TRD is just as debilitating as any other type of depression. It causes severe pain and suffering for those who experience it—and their loved ones. TMS does not circulate in the blood throughout the body, so it does not have side effects like weight gain, sexual dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth, sedation, etc. The most common side effects reported during clinical trials were headache and scalp discomfort —generally mild to moderate—occurring less frequently after the first week of treatment.

No. TMS Therapy involves a unique method of using pulsed magnetic fields for a therapeutic benefit. The intensity of the magnetic field is similar to that of an MRI. These techniques differ radically from the popular use of low-intensity, static magnetic fields. Those products deliver weak and undirected static fields that are not capable of activating brain cells. The activation and stimulation of brain cells is a key part of why NeuroStar TMS is so effective.
