Clinical trials have proven the effectiveness of TMS Therapy in treating major depression in people who have not benefited from antidepressant medications.
NeuroStar® TMS Therapy is a medical procedure that works by delivering highly focused MRI-strength magnetic pulses to noninvasively stimulate the prefrontal cortex (area of brain that controls mood) and treat major depression. When receiving TMS a simple magnetic coil is placed on your head – and some people may hear a slight clicking or feel a tapping sensation.

While the exact cause of depression is not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells. NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).
