A treatment option for depression and OCD

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a clinically proven and FDA-cleared treatment for depression and OCD. TMS works by sending short magnetic pulses to target the affected area of the brain – stimulating and activating neural pathways so that the inactive signals begin firing and working again.


How TMS works

TMS treatment strengthens neural pathways in the brain that influence thoughts, emotions and behaviors. TMS is FDA cleared for treating depression and OCD.
When experiencing a mental health condition or a mood disorder the brain’s ability to regulate emotions may not function at full capacity. This can result in signals along the neural pathways that normally regulate mood, emotions and/or thoughts not working properly.
TMS treatment works by sending short magnetic pulses to exactly the areas of the brain that you want to treat – stimulating and activating neural pathways and restoring the emotional control center.
TMS is non-invasive and well tolerated by the vast majority of patients. The person receiving TMS is awake during the treatment and can return to normal activities immediately after (no medication or anesthesia is required).
Treatment time can range from five minutes to 60 minutes, depending on the type of therapy. A typical course of treatment is approximately 6 weeks.
TMS therapy may offer an alternative treatment option for patients who do not respond well to medication or are unable to tolerate it. Studies suggest that combining TMS therapy with counseling or psychotherapy may lead to improved outcomes.
