NeuroStar TMS Therapy is an FDA-cleared safe and effective non-drug depression treatment for patients who are not satisfied with the results of standard drug therapy. This novel treatment option provides benefits without the side effects often associated with antidepressant medication.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.2

NeuroStar TMS Therapy is an in-office treatment that takes 19 to 37 minutes and is performed while the patient sits in a chair. Treatment consists of sessions administered five days a week, for up to four to six weeks.

NeuroStar Customer Testimonial

TMS treatments have given me a quality of life that I never even knew was possible.

I have suffered with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, numerous hospitalizations and suicide attempts for my entire 50 years of life. I would fall and get back up, take my medicine, see my counselor and Doctor. I looked around at other people that seemed to have life "under control" and could not understand what was wrong with me. The struggle is real; just trying to hold onto my mind so I wouldn't snap and hurt so many people, yet again. The older I got, the harder it became for the "tools" and medicine to work. I was so tired of only being able to hold on. My world had now been reduced to not leaving my home, afraid of people and the world. The fog, the whirlwind of words and images in my head and that deep tar pit ... The endless hole of depression and sadness just seemed harder and harder to keep at bay.

I didn't want to feel like this; I couldn't stand the pain and suffering anymore and I was getting so tired just trying to maintain. I was tired of always hurting everyone and myself. I had no idea how I was going to make it another day, let alone the rest of my life but, I was not going to give up trying to get "normal". Too many people cared about me, whether I did or not.
One visit, my doctor offered me the opportunity to try TMS treatments. I had heard of these treatments and had followed any news I could find. I saw and read about people being able to truly stop the internal confusion, suffering and despair; transforming their lives. I never thought that I would be able to have these treatments, mostly because why would I count? But here it was ... an opportunity to have my brain start working like "normal". I jumped at the offer! I don't even think my doctor could finish his words before I was saying YES! I had nothing to lose. I started the treatments the next day. I was the first patient to receive the TMS treatments at the office and had no idea what to expect, but I knew that if it worked, I was being given an opportunity to live and not just survive.

For 36 days this treatment became my priority. Having suffered with this my entire 50 years, I had no idea of what to expect. I couldn't imagine what it would be like or feel like not to have to "hang on". I took each day as a surprise gift and each day was. My first appointment made a difference; I was smiling and laughing for real, not the "fake it till you make it thing" and even found myself at the ice cream store by myself! TMS treatments seem to have jump started my brain into working correctly. I now find myself automatically using the tools I have been taught without thinking about it. All this time and effort, in not giving up has worked and wasn't for not!

The treatments were painless and the only side effects was a feeling of getting happy and my mind got more clear, stronger and less rattled every day. (Oh, also, cheeks sore from smiling so much!) I don't feel overwhelmed or anxious anymore. I feel confident, strong, happy and eternally grateful! No more suffering. It just disappeared! It wasn't like a light just turned on, it's more like a dimmer light switch, each and every day was a little lighter, brighter and a feeling of finally being free of this nightmare. I finally have peace.

I am amazed at my transformation into happiness and freedom. I now feel a joy that I never knew existed. My head is clear and I understand and I can just accept things so much easier! I am in charge of my emotions; they don't run me anymore. The world is quite literally brighter and so much lighter! My brain feels different and my mind is free from the fog and even that dreadful tar pit of despair closed up and went completely away. I feel balanced. I finally feel complete and whole. I know I count. I am so happy to be alive! I am ready to move forward and live a happy, full life!
