NeuroStar TMS Therapy
Proven Depression Relief That Lasts
Drug-free Depression Treatment That Works For You
TMS is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy, a non-drug treatment for major depression. TMS uses focused magnetic pulses, similar to an MRI, to reignite dormant synapses in the brain and help your brain function the way it was meant to. 9
It is not a drug, “shock” therapy, or surgery. It is a safe, effective treatment for MDD without the common side effects of medication.
Significant response was maintained 12 months after acute depression treatment.
In a naturalistic clinical study in 257 patients who did not benefit from antidepressant medications, NeuroStar Advanced Therapy offered durable effect over 1 year following acute treatment:
- 67.7% of patients responded to treatment
- 45.1% reached remission
36.2% of patients received NeuroStar Advanced Therapy reintroduction (average of 16 treatments). Long-term durability of effect has not been established in a randomized trial. Trial design used physician-directed standard of care.

Treating depression where it starts
Medical treatments for depression are usually centered around antidepressants that rely on the systems in your body to deliver relief. NeuroStar Advanced TMS treatments go right to the source of depression—your brain.
There are specific areas in your brain that control mood. When synapses in those mood-regulating areas are underactive, connections are broken and depression can result. NeuroStar revitalizes those dormant synapses, “waking up” the brain to function as it was meant to.
The #1 physician recommended TMS treatment
NeuroStar is the #1 physician recommended TMS treatment and has been proven safe and effective for patients who have not seen symptom improvement or remission from medications. If you have been diagnosed with MDD, and have not found relief from antidepressants, NeuroStar may be right for you.

Proven, lasting depression relief
NeuroStar works for people with treatment-resistant depression, and not just while you’re being treated. NeuroStar is the only TMS treatment that has proven to be effective for a year.
There is no sedation, anesthesia, or recovery time and for most people the NeuroStar treatment is relaxing. The most common side effect is mild to moderate pain or discomfort at the treatment site that usually subsides within the first week of treatment.
If you’re looking for another option for treating depression, you’re not alone
Based on a recent market research study of 500 patients diagnosed with depression, NeuroStar found that 67% of these patients were not happy with their current treatment or quality of life and were actively searching for a new treatment solution.
Many NeuroStar patients start to see improvement within 2 to 3 weeks of treatment. That can include changes in mood, fewer days of depression, and increased desire to engage with other people more often. In fact, your friends and family may notice your results before you do!
