How does NeuroStar Advanced Therapy Work?

TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation)

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).

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.

Treatment with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is easy:

  • Therapy sessions are conducted in your doctor’s office
  • 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 one million treatments performed, this novel treatment approach to achieving remission is bringing new hope to people every day.
