About NeuroStar TMS Therapy

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is a patented TMS technology that utilizes a magnetic coil to stimulate regions of the brain associated with depression symptoms. We have found it tremendously helpful in helping resolve depression for those with treatment-resistant depression who have failed to get help from anti-depressant medications.


Non Invasive Procedure

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is a completely painless and non-surgical procedure. No anesthesia is required.


No Drug Side Effects

TMS Therapy is free of pharmaceutical intervention. After a session is over, you can confidently return to any regular daily activity such as work or school.


Most insurance companies will help cover the cost of your NeuroStar Advanced Therapy. Find out more by contacting us today.

Check out these testimonials from real TMS clients at Aspire Psychiatry: 

TMS was very, very helpful. It honestly saved my life. Summer was my TMS Technician and she made me feel at home and welcome. I owe my life to the TMS staff, not only for taking me in as a client, but also a friend. I would recommend TMS to everyone. 

TMS was amazing. It wasn't a cure all but my sleep has been way better, and my mood is so much better. Things that would have normally made me depressed for a long period of time don't any more. My bounce back time is much quicker. I would highly recommend TMS to anyone who has tried multiple medications and nothing really took the edge off.
