WHAT IS TMS THERAPY?
TMS Therapy is a form of brain stimulation that uses powerful magnetic fields that are delivered through a coil placed over the scalp. While the patient is seated comfortably and fully alert, the magnetic pulses target the area of the brain that is associated with mood regulation, memory, and concentration. The magnetic pulses then induce electrical currents that reach about two centimeters into the brain tissue in the prefrontal cortex, stimulating the dormant brain cells so often seen in depressed patients. Over a period of 4-6 weeks, the brain chemistry can be reset and the patient experiences notable improvements in mood, focus, energy, and sleep quality. TMS therapy is conducted without the need for any anesthesia, so patients can immediately return to their normal activities following the treatment sessions.
