Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
What is TMS?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive, FDA Cleared, medical procedure that we’ve used for over 4 years to relieve people from depression. We use the most advanced TMS system in the country (The Magstim Horizon 3.0 with StimGuide) because we want the BEST possible results for our clients.
How does TMS work?
TMS delivers magnetic pulses to a targeted area of the brain to activate the limbic system of your brain. The limbic system is composed of various regions of the brain responsible for how one experiences all major emotions. By focusing treatment to “beginning” of the limbic system, we’re able to “activate” the entire system. We have seen where clients begin experiencing relief of their depressive symptoms within 1 - 2 weeks of starting TMS, something that is difficult to achieve with traditional medications.
Why is TMS so successful?
Our clients experience 50-60% improvement in depression symptom reduction on average. These achievements occur while we are removing anti-depressant medications! Since we’re able to use real-time 3-D brain maps to guide us during the TMS procedures, we’re able to ensure accurate and consistent placement of the magnetic coil on the scalp. This helps to ensure that the magnetic pulses are delivered to the correct area of the brain with the correct intensity and frequency, which improves the efficacy of the treatment.
Do I qualify for TMS?
If you suffer from Depression, Anxiety, OCD or Chronic Pain TMS may be a good fit. Take the following assessment to find out if you are a good candidate: Patient Health Questionnaire. Once you’ve completed the assessment, take a pic and send it to your provider ** If you score higher than 10, you may be a good candidate**
