TMS – What To Expect During Treatment

Here’s what you can expect from a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) session:

Before Treatment

You’ll recline comfortably in the treatment chair. A curved magnetic coil will be positioned on your head. 

During Treatment 

You’ll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head as the NeuroStar coil focuses treatment precisely at the source of the depression: the brain. The patented Contact Sensing technology ensures the prescribed dose is delivered, every treatment, every pulse. 

After Treatment

 With NeuroStar TMS you are fully awake and alert during treatment and may drive home and resume daily activities immediately afterwards. Depending on your doctor’s recommendation, a typical NeuroStar treatment plan includes 36 sessions that each last between 19-37 minutes. Completing the full NeuroStar treatment course gives the best chance for delivering long-lasting relief from depression.

You can resume normal activities immediately.

Because there are no effects on alertness or memory, you can drive yourself to and from treatment sessions.
