Today’s Question: What Should I Expect During TMS Treatment?

During treatment, patients recline comfortably and are awake and alert throughout the TMS Therapy session. No anesthesia or sedation is needed. Treatment involves placement of the magnetic coil against the patient’s head. Patients will hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on their head during treatment. The magnetic-pulse technology is proven safe and effective.

Each TMS Therapy session takes ~20 minutes to complete and is conducted right in the doctor’s office, five days a week, for approximately four to six weeks. After treatment each day, patients can immediately return to normal activities, and there’s zero medications involved so there’s no drug-like side effects commonly associated with antidepressants.

TMS Therapy is FDA-cleared depression treatment, and it’s 100% medication-free and non-invasive. Contact us today for a Free TMS Therapy Screening.
