About NeuroStar® TMS Therapy
What is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS)?
During the NeuroStar treatment session, a magnet similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine stimulates nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.
Treatment with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is simple:
- Therapy sessions are conducted in your NeuroStar clinic
- You can return to normal activities right away
- You are awake during treatment
- There are no negative effects on memory or sleep
- It’s covered by most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Tricare
With more than three million TMS therapies delivered, this novel treatment approach to achieving remission is bringing new hope to people every day.
