About NeuroStar TMS Therapy
NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in individuals with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).
While the precise cause of depression is not known, leading scientific theories indicate it is caused by imbalances in the brain's neurotransmitters. These imbalances are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.
What is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy
During the NeuroStar treatment session, a magnet that is similar in strength to one that is utilized in a (MRI) magnetic resonance imaging machine, is used to stimulate the nerve cells in the brain area that are thought to control a person's mood. These magnetic pulses can have a positive effect on an individual's brain transmitter levels which can make long-term remission possible.

How NeuroStar TMS Therapy Works
Here's what you can expect from a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) session:
You will recline very comfortably in the treatment chair. A small, curved magnetic coil will be positioned very lightly on your head.
NeuroStar therapy delivers precise, focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain. You'll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping on your head. Depending on your doctor's specific recommendations, each treatment will take approximately 19 minutes.
You can resume your normal daily activities immediately. Because there are no effects on alertness or memory, you can drive yourself to and from the treatment sessions.
