TMS is an FDA-approved, medical treatment for people who have tried various forms of antidepressant treatments but still have not achieved relief from symptoms of major depression. These include people who have not benefited from talk therapy or from taking medications, or those who cannot tolerate antidepressants due to their side effects.
TMS is an outpatient, non-invasive treatment that doesn’t require surgery or implantation of electrodes. It uses magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in parts of your brain that are involved in mood control and depression. It is a proven, non-drug treatment that brings hope to people suffering from major depression.
