Neurostar uses magnetic pulses to stimulate ares of the brain that can be causing depression.

People suffering from depression have reported improvements in as little as 4 weeks. Psychiatric Care Center is the only psychiatric center in Redding to offer NeuroStar TMS Therapy.

NeuroStar TMS Treatment
What is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS)?

During a NeuroStar treatment session, a magnet similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.

Here’s what you can expect from a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) session:

Before treatment

  • You’ll recline comfortably in the treatment chair
  • A small, curved magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head

During treatment

  • NeuroStar delivers focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain
  • You’ll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head

After treatment

  • You can resume normal activities immediately
  • Because there are no effects on alertness or memory, you can drive yourself to and from treatment sessions
Treatment with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is easy:
  • Therapy sessions are conducted in our Redding psychiatric office
  • You can return to normal activities right away
  • You are awake during treatment
  • There are no negative effects on memory or sleep
  • It’s covered by most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Tricare

With more than four million treatments performed, this novel treatment approach to achieving remission is bringing new hope to people every day.

NeuroStar TMS Treatment
What happens during a typical NeuroStar TMS treatment session?

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.
