The story touched on the success of a TMS NeuroHealth Centers’ patient, who is currently in remission after suffering from depression for the last 10 years.

TMS therapy is a non-drug, FDA cleared, non-invasive medical treatment for patients suffering with depression. It uses highly focused magnetic pulses to gently stimulate the area of the brain that controls mood. This specific area has been identified as underactive in people who suffer from depression. Stimulation leads to the release of chemical neurotransmitters, relieving the symptoms of depression. Each treatment is a 30-40 minute outpatient procedure; typically administered five days a week for 4-6 weeks in its acute phase. TMS Therapy is proven form of treating depression when patients are suffering from side effects of medication and have not benefited from initial antidepressant medication.
