we Treat Mental Health

There are specific areas in your brain that control mood. In those with depression, those mood regulating areas are underactive and the neuron connections are broken.

We use transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target that key underactive area of the brain to reawaken brain connections using gentle magnetic pulses improving your brain’s ability to regulate your mood.

Depression relief without
THE side effects

TMS is NOT a drug, is NOT “shock” therapy, and is NOT surgery. And it doesn’t have any of the side effects associated with traditional antidepressants.
There is no sedation, anesthesia, or recovery time and for most people the NeuroStar TMS treatment is relaxing.
The most common side effect is mild- moderate scalp discomfort.
