TMS Therapy

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy

Depression is a common, and serious, medical issue. It effects the way you think, feel, and act. The symptoms of depression can vary, and may include: feeling sad, worthless, or guilty, loss of interest in activities you enjoy, changes in appetite, increased fatigue, and difficulty thinking or concentrating, amongst other symptoms. Depression is highly treatable, with 80-90% of patients responding to treatment. For those that have found traditional treatment ineffective, TMS Therapy can provide hope for remission from depression.

TMS (Transcranial Magentic Stimulation) Therpay is a non-invase procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain responsible for depression and mood control. These painless magnetic pulses work to improve the symptoms of depression.
