NeuroStar® delivers our advanced and unique form of TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation), a non-invasive therapy that uses targeted magnetic pulses to stimulate areas of the brain that are underactive in people suffering from depression
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy for Mental Health is an FDA-cleared, non-drug, non-invasive therapy that can help you achieve long-term relief from the symptoms of depression. Over 110,000 patients have been treated with NeuroStar.
Neurostar Works By Working Differently
Unlike antidepressant medications, which have to travel through your entire body, NeuroStar targets the source of depression in the brain, where it helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field.
Rethink the way You Treat Your Depression
Have you already tried antidepressant medications? Are you concerned about their side effects? Are you interested in a non-drug, non-invasive treatment? If this sounds like you, Neurostar could be a great option to discuss with your provider
How does it work
Research has shown that depression can be caused by an imbalance in the brain’s neurotransmitters, the chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.
In people with depression, key areas of the brain can become inactive due to this imbalance, including areas that control mood. By stimulating these areas, NeuroStar® Advanced Therapy for Mental Health can have a lasting effect on neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission from depression symptoms a reality for many patients.
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy uses a unique form of TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) to stimulate nerve cells in mood-controlling areas of the brain—the same areas that are underactive in people suffering from depression. An FDA-cleared technology, NeuroStar is backed by the largest clinical data set of any TMS system for depression
NeuroStar is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy). The targeted magnetic pulses used in our treatments are similar in strength to those used in an MRI machine, and cause no effects on your alertness.
