TMS Therapy


What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy


TMS therapy is a noninvasive brain stimulation therapy that utilizes electromagnetic pulses  to stimulate underactive neural pathways in the brain. This FDA approved treatment has been clinically proven to deliver significant relief and remission of a multitude of mental health disorders including depression, anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) – even for those patients who have not seen improvement from traditional medications.

How does TMS therapy work?


NeuroStar TMS Therapy uses targeted and precise electromagnetic stimulation to revitalize inactive areas of the brain that are responsible for regulating mood and performing other important functions.

What happens during a TMS session?


During your first appointment, your TMS team will work with you to customize the spa-like treatment chair to your specific comfort settings. Your TMS provider will then perform a mapping process to accurately position the magnetic coil above the specific area of the brain that is being targeted for therapy. During each treatment, You’ll be awake and aware the entire time, which is often of comfort to those who are new to the therapy. The coil is positioned in the specific location for maximal activation of the brain area that we are targeting, and the treatment begins. Even with the earbuds you’ll likely hear the “clicking noise” and you’ll feel a tender tapping from the coil. 19 minutes later, later the treatment is completed and you’re able to drive home on your own and resume your normal daily life. A standard course of TMS Therapy includes 36 treatment sessions, 5 treatments per week, each lasting under 20 minutes -But, all of your specifications are prescribed by your provider and are dependent on your response to the treatment and to what you need to achieve.
