Transcranial magnetic stimulation

What is TMS?

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a type of brain stimulation therapy. It’s a clinically proven, non-invasive, drug-free therapy that can help people who experience depression. It uses focused magnetic pulses (similar to an MRI) to revitalize inactive synapses in the brain.

There are specific areas in your brain that control mood. When synapses in those mood-regulating areas are underactive, connections are broken and depression can result. When these connections are “woken up,” it can have a lasting effect on neurotransmitter levels and can lead to long-term remission from depression for many people.


How does it work?

The human body contains electromagnetic fields. For example, your heart’s electrical system controls your heartbeat. TMS therapy uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS therapy is an alternative to medication for people who have found antidepressants unsuccessful. TMS therapy is approved by the FDA specifically for people who don’t respond to antidepressant medication.

What happens during a treatment session?

During a TMS therapy session, you’ll be seated in a comfortable chair specifically designed by NeuroStar® for TMS therapy. The treatment is noninvasive, and no medication or sedation is used. During each session, a cushioned coil is precisely placed against your head while magnetic pulses deliver the therapy to the correct location that regulates mood in your brain. Our team is right by your side, providing any support you may need during this outpatient treatment.

What are the side effects of TMS therapy?

Due to the unique nature of the treatment process, risk of side effects are minimal to none. The most common side effect may be a mild discomfort at, or near, the treatment site and in the majority of cases goes away within the first week or so of treatment.

How much does it cost?

TMS therapy is covered by most insurance. If your insurance does not cover TMS, don’t let that discourage you. We offer many other options to help alleviate the financial hurdles.

How long does each treatment session last?

TMS therapy sessions last 20 – 40 minutes each.

Can I return to my regular day after treatment?

Yes. There are no limits to your activity following treatment. No sedation or medication is used during therapy.

“Medication for depression can be an extremely effective tool. But for some patients, medication simply doesn’t provide results. TMS therapy steps in at that point. As a mental health provider, it’s extraordinary to see the positive impact TMS can have on depression and its symptoms for our patients.”
