Now offering NeuroStar® TMS Advanced Therapy

Are you struggling with chronic depression? We are now scheduling patients for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), an alternative solution with proven results to activate regions of the brain that have decreased activity in people with depression. By utilizing a short-pulsed magnetic field to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, TMS provides effective treatment with fewer side effects. FDA-approved to treat Depression, TMS has also been shown effective for clients with Anxiety, ADHD, Chronic Pain, Fatigue, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Memory Loss.

We offer a Free Consultation to learn more about TMS!
