What Is NeuroStar TMS?

There are many treatment options available for clinical depression. However, some patients are concerned about negative side effects often associated with depression medications. TMS makes long-term remission from depression possible, without the side effects of drugs.

TMS, or transcranial magnetic stimulation, is an advanced therapy which uses a targeted, pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. The pulses, produced through a NeuroStar FDA approved device, are delivered directly to the specific area of the brain involved in depression. Over 3 million treatments have been safely performed by the NeuroStar device. At Embracing Life Wellness Center, we have successfully treated more than 100 patients, with 84% of patients experiencing relief of their depressive symptoms, and with 50% achieving remission.

If you or a loved one are currently diagnosed with treatment-resistant depression by a psychiatrist, physician, or qualified healthcare professional, TMS therapy may be an option. TMS therapy is considered a scheduled medical procedure and in many cases is covered by insurance for adults over 18. Our 5-minute questionnaire can help us start the conversation to determine whether TMS therapy is the right treatment option for you.

When beginning NeuroStar TMS therapy, you can expect:

  • Daily treatments 5 days a week for 6 weeks*
  • Each treatment lasts approximately 18-19 minutes*
