TMS therapy is a groundbreaking treatment for depression that uses MRI technology to stimulate nerve cells in your brain that regulate mood. It is FDA-approved, non-invasive, practically free of side effects, and covered by most insurance providers.

TMS is very effective for patients who have treatment-resistant depression. Over half of patients respond to TMS and more than one-third achieve remission. This is great news for patients who have tried various treatment methods without improvement.

TMS uses magnetic pulses through a device to directly target the region of the brain responsible for mood to improve symptoms of depression.
