What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?
…tried many antidepressants, therapies and continue to suffer from depression and other mental health symptoms. Then TMS may be the solution for relief of your chronic symptoms!!!!!! TMS is a non-invasive method of stimulation that relies on electromagnetic induction using an insulated coil placed over the scalp, focused on an area of the brain thought to play a role in mood regulation.
The coil generates brief magnetic pulses, which pass easily and painlessly through the skull and into the brain. The pulses generated are of the same type and strength as those generated by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines. When these pulses are administered in rapid succession, it is referred to as “repetitive TMS “ or “rTMS”, which can produce longer lasting changes in brain activity.
At RMH we use the Neurostar TMS System due to its FDA cleared and proven efficacy compared to other systems on the market.
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is an FDA-cleared, non-drug depression treatment for patients with depression who are not satisfied with the results of standard antidepressant medication. Proven safe and effective, NeuroStar TMS Therapy achieves results without the side effects often associated with antidepressant medications.
