For decades, people with depression have taken medications only to find that they stop working or have a lot of side effects.
Now there is an option that is more potent than medications and with better results. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive, non-drug treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression and other mental afflictions. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven't been effective but can be used when medications are not an option or not desired. It is NOT ECT (Electroconvulsive Shock Therapy). It does NOT require anesthesia and has NO side effects.
During a TMS session, an electromagnetic coil is placed against your scalp near your forehead. The electromagnet painlessly delivers a magnetic pulse that stimulates nerve cells in the region of your brain involved in mood control and depression. It may activate regions of the brain that have decreased activity in people with depression resulting in alleviation of depression and preventing relapse. The effects are long lasting and much more powerful than that of medications alone. Typically, the sessions are 37 min a day; for 36 days.
