What Parts of the Brain Does NeuroStar TMS Affect?
Unlike medications that affect the whole body, NeuroStar Advanced TMS targets only the brain.
When an individual is affected by depression or anxiety, this means that a part of the brain is underactive. NeuroStar Advanced TMS aims to stimulate the brain to provide mood regulation and improve symptoms.
What Does NeuroStar TMS Feel Like?
People usually report that NeuroStar Advanced TMS feels like a tapping sensation on their scalp. Nothing is touching your scalp in reality; it is just a sensation caused by the magnetic pulses.
The great thing about NeuroStar Advanced TMS is that you can go about your day after your treatment as it doesn’t cause any disturbance to your alertness or memory.
Little to No Side Effects
Contrary to the side effects of medication which include nausea, dry mouth, insomnia, dizziness, fatigue, and sexual problems, NeuroStar TMS has little to no side effects.
NeuroStar Advanced TMS therapy is considered to be very safe. NeuroStar TMS is non-invasive, and there is no discomfort felt during the sessions. You remain awake the entire time, so there is no risk from anesthesia.
NeuroStar TMS usually has mild side effects, if any. You might experience headaches, or feel lightheaded during treatment.
Short Daily Treatment Sessions Working Around Your Schedule
Each NeuroStar TMS treatment typically lasts between 18 and 25 minutes. Treatment occurs while you are sitting comfortably in a chair.
Most patients enjoy listening to music, reading a book, or watching TV during treatment. NeuroStar Advanced TMS treatment does not affect our patients’ ability to perform normal daily activities.
