WHAT IS TMS?

Approved by the FDA and covered by most insurance plans, this therapy works by stimulating specific parts of the brain known to be underactive in people battling depression.

IS TMS AN OPTION FOR ME?

If you or a loved one is struggling with depression…

Or you have not yet found relief from antidepressant medications, you may want to consider TMS as an effective treatment option. Consider these questions below to help you decide:

  • Have you taken more than 1 antidepressant medication?
  • Have medications failed to provide you relief from your symptoms?
  • Is depression negatively affecting your work life and ability to make a living?

  • Do the side effects from medications diminish the benefits you feel?
  • Has depression increased your doctor visits for other healthcare concerns?
  • Does depression still hold too much control over your life?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, TMS is a viable treatment option for you!

BEFORE TREATMENT

At a TMS clinic, you’ll sit reclined in a comfortable chair where the doctor will place a small, curved magnetic coil on your head for your session, which will be around 20-30 minutes.

DURING TREATMENT

The TMS machine sends a series of brief magnetic pulses – no stronger than those in a typical MRI – to the target areas of the brain. You are awake during the session and will feel only a light tapping sensation. You can relax, listen to music or even watch television during treatment.

AFTER TREATMENT

You can resume your day as usual! With no effects on memory, function, or alertness, you can perform normal activities immediately, such as driving back to work or picking up your children.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

A typical full course of treatment lasts 6-8 weeks, though this may vary depending on a patient’s response to treatment. Sessions are administered 5 days a week by trained TMS technicians and with close assessment of your progress. This is an easily tolerated therapy, with no involvement of drugs and minimal side effects. You may only feel a mild temporary headache or fatigue that goes away quickly.
