Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
Safe & Non-Invasive Treatment for Depression
What is TMS?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS, uses an MRI strength magnet to stimulate areas of the brain that controls mood. Recent research shown that these magnetic pulses may have positive effect on depression with long-lasting relief.
It is a proven treatment option for adults who have depression and have not responded to antidepressant therapy.

We are proud to partner with NeuroStar to provide this safe, effective, and drug-free treatment for depression.
Neurostar is the #1 physician-recommended TMS Therapy for the treatment of depression.
TMS involves delivering magnetic pulses to specific parts of the brain.
A typical session is about 19-37 minutes daily over 4-6 weeks.
TMS does not circulate in the blood throughout the body, so it does not have side effects like weight gain, sexual dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth, sedation, etc. The most common side effects reported during clinical trials were headache and scalp discomfort —generally mild to moderate—occurring less frequently after the first week of treatment.
No. TMS Therapy involves a unique method of using pulsed magnetic fields for a therapeutic benefit. The intensity of the magnetic field is similar to that of an MRI. These techniques differ radically from the popular use of low intensity, static magnetic fields. Those products deliver weak and undirected static fields that are not capable of activating brain cells. The activation and stimulation of brain cells is a key part of why TMS is so effective.
