My name is Marie and I am a recovering depressed person. That is the best way I can think to put it. I am sharing my story so I can assist others that have suffered as I did so they can find alternate methods of treating their depression other than the medications that are currently the primary method.
When I first came in for treatments, I was so negative. My anxiety was overwhelming. This went on for a couple weeks. At approximately week three, the depression started lifting a little bit and I started having conversations about things other than myself. By the end of the final week, I was a different person.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) - A Drug Free Treatment for Depression. Did you know there is a drug and side-effect free treatment with long lasting results? Find out more at our Informational Event.
Join psychiatrist David Dunner, MD as he discusses a new non-drug depression treatment option that is now available.
As we mentioned before, one segment of the show featured Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a cutting-edge treatment for depression that we started offering last year. Those clips are now up on the Dr. Oz website.
The NeuroStar TMS Therapy® system, developed by Neuronetics, is the first and only non-systemic and non-invasive TMS system cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of patients with major depression who have not benefited from prior antidepressant treatment.
This non-invasive treatment for depression uses a highly focused, pulsed magnetic field to stimulate function in targeted brain regions.
It is made available to patients by prescription only and delivered under the supervision of a psychiatrist.
