TMS is a non-invasive and drug-free depression treatment. In a TMS therapy session, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. They switch the TMS device on, and the coil sends magnetic pulses to the prefrontal cortex of your brain.
TMS therapy works by using this electromagnetic energy to stimulate your prefrontal cortex. This part of the brain regulates mood. In someone with depression, it’s less active than normal. TMS stimulates the prefrontal cortex and improves how it regulates mood.
Our patient testimonials prove that TMS therapy is a very effective treatment for depression!
TMS is different from other treatments in three significant ways:
TMS therapy is an effective depression treatment for people who:
Anti-depressants help many people, but they don’t work for everyone. If you don’t benefit from medication or can’t tolerate the side effects, TMS could be a viable option.
There are other depression treatments like deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. But these involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and require anesthesia. TMS therapy is effective, non-invasive, and doesn’t require anesthesia.
Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects. The most common side effect is discomfort at or near the treatment site while the treatment is happening. This discomfort usually subsides after around a week of treatment.
Most TMS patients notice improvements in their mood within two or three weeks of starting treatment. Some notice positive results even earlier than this!
TMS therapy provides long-term benefits, but you may need booster treatments once in a while to stay free from your symptoms. If you need them, it’s likely that only a few consecutive sessions a year will be necessary. In most cases, insurance covers booster treatments.
TMS has documented success treating medication-resistant depression, so most insurers cover the procedure.

Most people who have depression are eligible for TMS therapy. The main issue that might disqualify someone is the presence of non-removable metal in the head or face. This can be a problem because the metal may react unfavorably with magnetic energy. Non-removable mental can include:
