A New Possibility for the Treatment of Depression

If you’re like so many who suffer from depression, you have tried multiple medications or therapies searching for relief. These treatments don’t deliver satisfactory results for everyone, and they often come with significant side effects that only add to the struggle. It can be an exhausting cycle of trial and error that feels never ending.

 

Drug-Free Depression Treatment

TMS is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy, a non-drug treatment for major depression. TMS uses focused magnetic pulses, similar to an MRI, to reignite dormant synapses in the brain and help your brain function the way it was meant to. It is not a drug, “shock” therapy, or surgery. It is a safe, effective treatment for MDD without the common side effects of medication.

How Soon Will You See Results?

Many NeuroStar patients start to see improvement within 2 to 3 weeks of treatment. That can include changes in mood, fewer days of depression, and increased desire to engage with other people more often. In fact, your friends and family may notice your results before you do! As with any therapy, completion is key. Completing the full 6-week course of NeuroStar treatment gives the best chance for delivering long lasting relief from depression.

Does It Hurt?

During each 19-minute session, a cushioned coil is precisely placed against your head while magnetic pulses deliver the therapy to the correct location that regulates mood in your brain. You may feel a tapping, tingling, or warming sensation where the coil is positioned. This is usually temporary and subsides with subsequent treatments. You will be awake and alert during the treatment and may resume regular activities immediately afterward.
