A New Treatment That Works

FDA-approved since 2008, with over 2 million successful treatments delivered. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses short targeted pulses of magnetic energy to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. This happens while the patient is awake and alert, the treatment stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.

Due to its innovative and proven success, TMS therapy is covered by most insurance plans.

  • Proven effective with majority of patients experiencing relief within several weeks
  • Long lasting symptom relief that's targeted at the source
  • Non-invasive magnetic field that activates the natural function of the brain
  • Drug free with virtually no side effects

What you can expect.

In-office TMS therapy sessions take 19-37 minutes and administered 5 days a week for 4-6 weeks.

1. Before treatment you'll recline comfortably in the TMS treatment chair. A small, curved device containing the magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head.

2. During treatment the coil delivers focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain. You'll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head.

3. After treatment you can resume normal activities immediately. Because there are no effects on alertness or memory, you can drive yourself to and from treatment sessions. You will remain awake and alert during treatment with no sedation or anesthesia.
