What is TMS Therapy

TMS therapy is new and novel type of brain stimulation that treats depression using brief electromagnetic pulses (significantly
weaker than those used in an MRI machine). These pulses pass through the skull easily and stimulate neurons in underactive
regions of the brain thought to be responsible for depression. First approved in 2008 it is an effective form of treatment against
drug resistant depression. TMS therapy has been demonstrated to be safe, well tolerated, and effective in numerous clinical trials
and double blind studies, with little to no side effects. Tens of millions of people around the world have received TMS therapy.
Research shows it to be at least as effective as antidepressant medication. Close to 70% of patients receiving TMS therapy will
feel some benefit and relief in depression symptoms – half of those patients will be in full remission after treatment.
