Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy:
- FDA Approved
- No Side Effects
- Medication Free
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a safe, painless treatment for depression and certain other conditions without the use of medications. TMS uses brief, MRI strength magnetic pulses to stimulate the parts of the brain associated with the symptoms of the illness. Unlike medications, which act throughout the entire body, TMS does not cause side effects such as weight gain or sexual dysfunction.
TMS can be effective even if you have failed to respond to antidepressant medications. Unlike other treatments, such as electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), TMS does not cause cognitive side effects or memory problems. No anesthesia or sedation is used, so you can can drive yourself to and from treatment and even go back to work or school right after a treatment. There is no need to disrupt your usual routine.
What is a Typical Course of TMS Therapy?
A typical course of TMS lasts 4-6 weeks. Treatments are given daily, Monday through Friday. Each treatment session lasts about 40 minutes.
