"My eyes saw more clearly. My brain felt
like I had brain surgery to take away
the fogginess and fatigue."
“I would say at about my fifth week of

wasn’t able to function. After 6 weeks of
NeuroStar TMS Therapy, I was back to work;
I was enjoying my kids again and
I had my life back.”
“After about three weeks of daily TMS Therapy…
the light in the room looked different and the air
in the room felt different, and all of a sudden when
I got out of bed I felt lighter. I felt lifted out of
that heavy dark hopeless feeling.”
Sunita, 28 year old
