What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?

TMS is a safe and effective evidence-based treatment for mood disorders, like depression. Clinical data shows that TMS is effective for depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar depression, and migraines. 

It has been FDA-approved for the treatment of depression since 2008. 

TMS stimulates the brain non-invasively to “reset” and “reprogram” neural networks. This improves mood, energy, motivation, impulsivity, self-control, concentration, focus, and creativity. 

TMS differs from usual treatments, such as medications, because it retrains healthy neural networks bringing long-term relief from symptoms.

Client-centered and Evidence-based TMS Treatment

TMS therapy uses safe magnetic waves to increase connectivity and communication via neuroplasticity. It pinpoints specific areas, “resetting” and “retraining” brain networks.

People experience improvement in their depression and symptoms related to their motivation, energy, anxiety, sleep, PTSD, and tolerance to stress. Most people experience no side effects. 

Patients often report having relief from mood symptoms within weeks of starting. This allows you to enjoy the things that are important. This reconnects you with your life, happiness, and mental wellbeing.

How does TMS Work?

The frontal cortex is usually the area that’s stimulated in TMS.  The TMS coil is placed against the person’s head and when the TMS machine is turned on, that magnetic field goes through the skin, scalp, and skull and interacts with the prefrontal cortex. When it does, a current develops in the brain. That current allows, creates or causes nerve cells to fire. You could look at it the other way around, that nerve cells fire because of the magnetic field and that creates a current. It actually changes in currents. So the part of the brain that you hold it up to has a big impact on how it works because psychiatric conditions may need different locations of stimulation.
