How Does TMS Work?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation uses MRI strength magnetic pulses to safely and effectively stimulate the brain to improve mood and alleviate depression. This stimulation causes the brain to release neurotransmitters in a way that is similar to medication, while avoiding the risk of systemic side effects such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, fatigue, nausea, or worsened symptoms.

What Are TMS Treatments Like?

TMS feels like tapping on the head. Parameters are adjusted to ensure the patient’s comfort. Treatments are generally 19 minutes long and are completed three to five times weekly. A typical course of TMS therapy involves 30 treatments. Treatments are scheduled as conveniently as possible and patients are able to fully resume daily activities immediately following treatment.

Many patients have reported improvements in anxiety, irritability, libido, energy, focus, concentration, nicotine cravings, food cravings, and overall sense of wellbeing. TMS is not associated with any systemic side effects.
