Here’s how TMS works

There are specific areas of the brain involved in mood regulation. We stimulate those areas with magnetic pulses.


Expertise + Dedication = Innovation

FDA-cleared since 2008

Since the 1980s, treatment for depression has consisted mostly of antidepressants. Lots of people have felt better from antidepressants, but they don’t work for everyone. TMS therapy isn’t an antidepressant medication. Instead, it works by using gentle magnetic pulses.

Targeted to you

Unlike medications, which affect the entire body as they pass through the blood-brain barrier, TMS therapy targets depression at the source. That means you don’t have to put up with drug-related side effects, such as gastrointestinal problems, trouble sleeping, or weight gain.

Go right back to your day

Unlike other forms of brain stimulation, TMS therapy is non-invasive and non-sedating. Treatment sessions take place in our private centers and you can drive yourself to and from treatment. You can go back to work or school right away.

Dedicated to you

Your Care Team – providers, patient consultants, TMS technicians – are here for you. We work with you every step of the way to ensure you’re getting the care you need. Your TMS Technician will be with you during treatments and you’re free to chat with them or just sit and relax.
