Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) is an innovative treatment that offers lasting relief from depression symptoms. dTMS has been clinically proven to be an effective and non-invasive alternative for those who were not able to find relief from prescription medications. dTMS has also been shown to have none of the side effects that are commonly seen in antidepressant treatment and electric shock therapy (ECT).

TMS Leading Alternative Depression Treatment
For many people, medication resistant depression leaves them feeling hopeless and without an option that works for them. With Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), it provides an effective alternative for depression treatment that will allow for the brain to create an equilibrium and find balance. Even if you have tried electric shock therapy in the past without relief, TMS can be the treatment option that works for you.
How TMS works
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation utilizes a magnetic stimulating coil that is placed gently on the patient’s head. The coil produces a magnetic field that pulses directly to the brain where mood is regulated. The stimulation activates the chemicals in the mood to produce the natural feeling of happiness and well-being. The TMS difference is that is produces long lasting results with the least side effects.
