Get Proven Relief From Depression

TMS Therapy treats depression safely, without medication. If you’re struggling with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and haven’t found relief from medications, TMS could be right for you.

What Is TMS Therapy?

TMS Therapy is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a non-drug treatment for major depression. TMS uses focused magnetic pulses, similar to an MRI, to reignite dormant synapses in the brain and help your brain function the way it was meant to.

TMS Therapy is not a drug, “shock therapy”, or surgery. It is a safe, effective treatment for depression without the side effects of medication.

Frequently Asked Questions

TMS Therapy is an innovative, FDA-cleared therapy that can help people who struggle with MDD even after taking antidepressant medication. It helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field, and is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).

TMS Therapy uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate the area of the brain that is thought to function abnormally in patients with depression. The magnetic field produces an electric current in the brain that stimulates the brain cells (neurons). This results in changes that are thought to be beneficial in the treatment of depression.

Due to its innovative treatment and proven efficacy, TMS Therapy may be covered by your insurance health plan. Many insurance companies have established medical coverage policies for TMS Therapy. Over 300 million patients have insurance policies that cover TMS Therapy through their health plans.

TMS is non-systemic (does not circulate in the blood throughout the body), so it does not have side effects such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth, sedation, etc. The most common side effects reported during clinical trials were headache and scalp discomfort – generally mild to moderate – occurring less frequently after the first week of treatment.

No. TMS Therapy involves a unique method of using pulsed magnetic fields for therapeutic benefit. The intensity of the magnetic field is similar to that of the magnetic fields used in magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI. These techniques differ radically from the popular use of low intensity, static magnetic fields. These products deliver weak and undirected static fields that are not capable of activating brain cells.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (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, TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.
