Transcranial Magnetic Simulation
NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) technology to target critical areas of the brain underactive in people with depression. It is not the same as the ECT (electroconvulsive therapy). Though the exact cause of depression is unknown, the principal scientific opinion is that it is produced by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells. What is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS)?
How NeuroStar TMS Therapy Works?
Here’s what you can expect from a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) session:
Before Treatment You’ll recline comfortably in the treatment chair. A small, curved magnetic coil will be placed lightly on your head.
During Treatment NeuroStar delivers focused magnetic stimulation straight to the target areas of the brain. You’ll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head.
After Treatment NeuroStar Advanced Therapy: Depending on the doctor’s recommendation, each treatment takes between 19 and 37 minutes.
