What is NeuroStar Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy is now available at Embracing Life Wellness Center in Riverview, Florida. Dr. Fickey and her staff are excited to offer this profoundly effective treatment to the community and their patients.
NeuroStar TMS is an advanced therapy which uses a targeted, pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. The pulses, produced through a NeuroStar FDA approved device, are delivered directly to the specific area of the brain involved in depression.
NeuroStar TMS stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in individuals with depressive symptoms during 19-minute treatment sessions. Unlike medications that are dispersed throughout the entire body, this is a targeted treatment for depression without the common side effects caused by medications.
After someone has failed two or more antidepressant medications, the chance of getting to remission is significantly low in comparison to the response and remission rates NeuroStar offers.
NeuroStar TMS is not electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and it is covered under insurance policies. Contact us today to set up a consultation to begin achieving full remission of your symptoms.
