What Is TMS Therapy?

TMS therapy is a physical treatment designed to activate depressed areas of your brain. It safely delivers magnetic pulses to specific cognitive regions associated with mood regulation, behavior, and emotion. Over time, TMS therapy trains your brain to improve its activity in these areas, easing your mental health symptoms.

Patients who are unfamiliar with TMS technology should be aware that it is not surgery, medication, hypnosis, or sedation, nor is it the same as electroconvulsive therapy. TMS is a safe, FDA-approved treatment that is low-risk for most patients. At The TMS Center of New Jersey, we offer NeuroStar Advanced TMS therapy, the top physician-recommended treatment of its kind.

With advanced technology and proven clinical results, NeuroStar is one of the most highly recommended TMS therapies for clinical depression, OCD, and anxiety. Backed by high-quality, rigorous research and clinical trials, NeuroStar has a reputation for being a safe and effective treatment for qualifying adult and adolescent patients.

Am I A Good Candidate for NeuroStar?

If you are a patient with MDD, OCD, or anxiety, you may be eligible for TMS therapy. This treatment is ideal if you have not seen success with traditional treatment methods. However, NeuroStar is not suitable for the following:

As with any medical treatment, you should consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if NeuroStar is the best option for you.
