Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

How Deep TMS Works

Unlike medications, which affect the entire body as they pass through the blood-brain barrier, TMS therapy targets depression at the source.

Understanding How Your Brian Works

For those diagnosed with depression, specific areas of the brain are known to be underactive. Stimulating these areas can improve the brain’s ability to regulate mood.

What should I expect during treatment?

The treatment integrates seamlessly into your routine. During each session, you are comfortably seated on a chair and a cushioned helmet is placed over your head. The helmet uses magnetic fields to stimulate the targeted brain area and improve depressive symptoms. The procedure requires daily sessions of 20 minutes for 4-6 weeks. As the treatment does not require hospitalization or anesthesia, and entails no memory loss and no systemic side effects, you can return to your normal routine after each session.
