What is Neuronetics NeuroStar?
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 causes of depression are not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance in the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.
What is NeuroStar Advanced Technology for TMS?
We offer TMS therapy in NYC with NeuroStar technology. During a NeuroStar treatment session, a magnet similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, is used to stimulate nerve cells in the areas of the brain that control the mood.
The magnetic pulses you’ll receive in TMS sessions may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.
With more than one million sessions performed, this treatment method for achieving remission from severe depression is bringing new hope to people every day.
