TMS Therapy Reviews From Patients
Alexia’s TMS Review
My name is Alexia,
I’ve suffered from really bad anxiety my whole life.
And when I got to college, I started experiencing really severe depression. I’m about three years out of college now, and it’s kind of unfortunate
that it took such a long time, but, finally, I found Success TMS, and that’s helped me find a lot of hope, and make progress in my journey.
I was trying to seek help for a long time, starting when I was about a sophomore in college, and I wasn’t really getting the help that I wanted to. I didn’t feel that I had people who were able to relate to my experience when I talked to my friends about it.
When I talked to therapists about it, I felt like they didn’t always take me very seriously. And when I tried taking medications, it was just disastrous. I experienced the worst side effects. I gained 30 pounds.
I had a psychotic break in response to one of the medications, and I had to take time off from school, and that was completely devastating. I was really discouraged, and I think I suffered a lot more than I needed to because I didn’t really feel like I had anyone to talk to, and I didn’t feel like the medications were really helping me. I felt like they were actually making things worse.
So I, doing my own independent research, found Success TMS. I didn’t want to give up hope entirely, even though I had tried all of the traditional methods of treating my depression and anxiety.
So I started doing a lot of research, and I found Success TMS. And now that I’ve started with Success TMS, I feel like I don’t have so many lows during my day or during my week, during my life, in my experiences.
I feel really consistently like I’m in a good place and a good mood, and that is amazing to feel free from anxiety and depression, and even, at worst, suicidal thinking. The staff at Success TMS is absolutely fantastic.
And I think one of the aspects of the treatment that is more difficult is that you have to come every single day for a relatively long period of time, not too long, but it’s a commitment to do TMS.
And the staff at Success TMS is so supportive, and that makes it easy for me to come here every day because I look forward to seeing my treater and to seeing the familiar faces at the front office because they’re all so kind and encouraging.
And I definitely look forward to coming to treatment every day because of the staff here. I would say to anyone who’s suffering with severe depression, anxiety, and who is losing their sense of hope to not give up.
When I started, before I came to Success TMS, I was in a really low place, where I felt really hopeless. And in a lot of ways, Success TMS was kind of what I was telling myself was my last hope. And luckily, it worked.
I would recommend that everyone try Success TMS because, at worst-case scenario, there would be no change, but at best-case scenario, it would be completely life-altering in a positive way.
And that’s what my experience with the treatment has been, is that I’ve experienced a
level of calm with my anxiety, and stability and contentment with as far as my depression goes that I haven’t experienced in a really long time.
So I would definitely recommend Success TMS to anyone who’s losing hope.
Success TMS has been my hope.
How Does TMS Feel?
The feeling of TMS is described by patients in this video to be annoying for the first few sessions, not painful, weird, and even relaxing depending on the patient’s experience.

TMS VS Prescription Medication
We’ve become very comfortable with the idea of modern medicine having a quick fix for whatever ailment we’re suffering from today.
What if there was an answer that didn’t include putting more substances into your body?
If you’re interested in getting the full picture, compare TMS vs Medications here.
You’re probably well versed in the unending list of unpleasant side effects that come along with the cocktail of drugs.
Anything for the chance to swap them out with an alternative that didn’t make you feel like a shadow of yourself, right?
Now you can with TMS Therapy.
What is TMS Therapy?
TMS is also covered by insurance. Most insurance providers in the U.S. cover TMS therapy. Medicare also covers TMS which means over 300 million Americans are covered. Medicaid covers TMS in some states like New Jersey.
TMS uses MRI strength magnets to stimulate a specific area of the brain (prefrontal cortex) that is underactive in people with depression.
Patients sit comfortably in a chair and TMS is administered by a certified treater.
1 session lasts roughly 18 minutes and it takes 6-8 weeks of treatments.
Before treatments ever begin, a mapping is conducted which isolates the exact treatment area and appropriate pulse strength. Once the mapping is complete you’ll be sure that all future sessions provide accurate and effective TMS treatments.
TMS therapy has been approved in the U.S. to treat Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), anxiety, migraines, OCD, smoking cessation; however, it’s in the trial stages for so much more like weight loss, bipolar disorder to autism to even help with post-stroke physical therapy outcomes.
Why Try TMS Therapy?
If you’ve tried medication and seen few positive results, TMS might be for you.
If the side effects of the medication have become too much, TMS might be for you.
If you’ve had enough of medication and would like to try a treatment that’s proven more effective than meds, TMS might be for you.
