Before and After TMS Therapy Treatment

Learn how TMS Treatment helped both Kelly and Daniel treat their depression and the positive impact it had on their lives.

Below are 2 video testimonials discussing the before and after TMS treatment for their depression.

Daniel’s Story

Before TMS:

  • Suffered through 7 years of hell having nothing and wanting nothing
  • 5 unsuccessful suicide attempts
  • 15+ medications
  • 5 hospitalizations

After TMS:

  • Had a new sense of hope
  • Enjoys his days instead of cutting them short
  • Owes his life to the TMS treatment

I completed Neurostar treatment in April of this year and life has been normal—fun, exciting! I engage with people socially. I engage with my daughter. I enjoy things that I lost. I don’t go to bed at 5 o’clock in the afternoon any more. I actually stay up…I’m back to my night owl personality where I’m up enjoying life wanting to extend my days rather than cut them short.

Daniel, Neurostar Patient

Kelly’s Story

Before TMS:

  • Medications had bad side effects or would do absolutely nothing which was just as discouraging as the side effects.
  • Would have actually given anything to feel sad because she couldn’t feel anything at all.

After TMS:

  • Woke up and walked outside and it was as if the sky was bluer. Felt like she had been going through life with a dimmer switch and all of the sudden everything was so clear and there was this clarity that she had never had before.
  • Went from someone who is completely numb and empty of life to someone who looks forward to every day.

My friends and family say that they noticed a complete 180 as far as my mood, my energy. They say that I’m a completely different, more vibrant version of myself than I was before.

Kelly, Neurostar Patient

About Neurostar® TMS Treatment

NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy). While the exact cause of depression is not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.

How TMS Treatment Works

TMS Therapy is a treatment that is performed in a psychiatrist’s office, under his or her supervision, using a medical device called the NeuroStar TMS Therapy system. NeuroStar TMS Therapy is:

  • Non-invasive, meaning that it does not involve surgery. It does not require any anesthesia or sedation, as the patient remains awake and alert during the treatment.
  • Non-systemic, meaning that it is not taken by mouth and does not circulate in the bloodstream throughout the body.

The typical initial treatment course consists of at least 5 treatments per week over a 6-9 week period, for an average of 30-36 total treatments. Each treatment session lasts approximately 19-40 minutes, depending on what the doctor determines is the correct protocol.
