A complete change' | Inside the new alternative treatment for depression

What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?

TMS  is an innovative therapy that can help people who struggle with major depressive disorder, even after taking antidepressant medication. It helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field.

Given in an office setting without anesthesia, treatments last about 20 minutes and are usually given five days per week for six weeks with two weeks of taper sessions. Magnetic pulses, generated by a treatment coil, are used to stimulate specific mood centers of the brain.

Because TMS is a non-drug treatment, people don’t experience side effects like those associated with antidepressant medications.

TMS is a breakthrough in the treatment of  Major Depressive Disorder, because it offers a real potential for long-term remission of symptoms.  As you can see in the chart to the right, with standard drug therapy,  long-term remission becomes less likely with each prescription medication treatment attempt. As antidepressant medication increases, so can side effects and the potential for treatment failure.

TMS uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.

Precisely targeted TMS makes long-term remission possible, without the side-effects and decreasing effectiveness of drug therapies.FREE phone consultation with one of our TMS certified staff member
