NeuroStar delivers our advanced and unique form of TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation), a noninvasive therapy that uses targeted magnetic pulses to stimulate areas of the brain that are underactive in people suffering from depression.
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy for Mental Health is an FDA-cleared, non-drug, noninvasive therapy that can help you achieve long-term relief from the symptoms of depression. Over 112,000 patients have been treated with NeuroStar.
How does NeuroStar work?
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy uses a unique form of TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) to stimulate nerve cells in mood-controlling areas of the brain—the same areas that are underactive in people suffering from depression.
An FDA-cleared technology, NeuroStar is backed by the largest clinical data set of any TMS system for depression.

Here’s what you can expect from a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) session
You’ll recline comfortably in the treatment chair. A small, curved magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head.
NeuroStar delivers focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain. You’ll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head.
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy: Depending on your doctor’s recommendation, each treatment takes between 19 and 37 minutes.
You can resume normal activities immediately.
Because there are no effects on alertness or memory, you can drive yourself to and from treatment sessions. In-office treatment with NeuroStar TMS Therapy typically takes 19-37 minutes and is administered 5 days a week for approximately 4-6 weeks.
