Rethink Depression Treatment
Unlike antidepressant medications, which have to travel through your entire body, our treatment targets the source of depression in the brain, where it helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a noninvasive magnetic field.
Frequently Asked Questions
TMS, or transcranial magnetic stimulation, is an alternative treatment for a variety of mental health conditions, but it is most commonly used to treat major depression and anxiety. This non-invasive therapy involves using a targeted magnetic field to stimulate under-active neurons in specific parts of the brain. TMS therapy typically takes about 6 weeks and is over 70% effective for providing long-term relief from depression symptoms.
Depression is caused by a lack of sufficient activity in the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, essentially the front left part of your brain. When this area is working properly, the entire brain lights up, creating an improved mood, working memory, and selective attention. TMS works by using magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. This is done by placing a magnetic coil near the head, which produces magnetic pulses that stimulate the nerve cells in the targeted area.
TMS may be a good option for individuals who have not responded to traditional treatments for depression, such as medication and psychotherapy. However, it is important to speak with a mental health professional to determine if TMS is right for you.
During TMS treatment, you can sit comfortably and perform passive activities like reading a book, watching TV, or listening to music. Most patients report that TMS treatment feels like a gentle tapping sensation on the skull. Some patients experience a tingling or scalp sensitivity at the stimulation site during treatment, which can typically be mitigated by placing the device at a slightly different angle.
Bringing Balance Back to Your Life
Relax in our TMS Therapy chair.
In people with depression, key areas of the brain can become inactive due to this imbalance, including areas that control mood. Our therapy can have a lasting effect on neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission from depression symptoms a reality for many patients.
Magnets treat your depression.
Our therapy uses a unique form of TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) to stimulate nerve cells in mood-controlling areas of the brain—the same areas that are underactive in people suffering from depression.
Repeat for 6 weeks.
Our patented Contact Sensing technology delivers the right dose, at the right location, every time. In just six weeks, one a week, you will be on your path to feeling better once again.
