The 19 minute treatment sessions are fast acting, noninvasive and tailored specifically for each patient’s needs.
What is TMS?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate areas of the brain associated with depression and other mental health symptoms. It was approved by the FDA in 2008 and is now used as a safe alternative to medication or other treatments such as psychotherapy or electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Unlike ECT, there are no general anesthesia or memory loss side effects associated with TMS.
Benefits of TMS Therapy
The benefits of this form of therapy include improved mood and behavior, increased energy levels, reduced anxiety levels, improved sleep quality, better concentration, improved social functioning, and more. In addition to these benefits, research has also shown that TMS can reduce suicidal thoughts in patients with major depressive disorder. Finally, one of the greatest advantages of this form of therapy is that it requires very few visits compared to other forms of mental health treatments such as psychotherapy or medications.
How Does It Work?
During a typical session, a technician will place a small device on your head that emits short bursts of magnetic energy which passes through your skull and stimulates areas in your brain involved in depression and other mental health symptoms. This stimulation can help regulate brain chemistry which can lead to relief from depression symptoms. The process is painless and generally lasts about 19 minutes per session. Most people typically receive five sessions per week over the course of four weeks but the number may vary depending on your individual situation.
