TMS Therapy is a highly focused MRI-strength magnetic pulse that non-invasively stimulates the brain and treats major depression.
Specifically: The magnetic pulse depolarizes the cortical neurons in the brain which promotes the release of neurotransmitters. By depolarizing these neurons it modulates deeper regions of the brain that effect mood. Repeated pulse stimulation to this region of the brain are proven to have an anti-depressant effect. TMS therapy eliminates the side effects and adverse events often associated with antidepressant medications because it does not circulate throughout the body. This targeted approach to treatment is FDA cleared, safe and effective.
