How NeuroStar TMS Therapy™ Works

NeuroStar transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) provides targeted treatment  to locations in the brain that are less active in individuals with depression. TMS works according to Faraday’s Law (hyperlink); the TMS magnet generates energy in the brain similarly to how a magnet charges your phone.

During a NeuroStar TMS treatment session, a magnet that is comparable in intensity to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine is used to revive nerve cells in the area of the brain believed to control mood. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.
