Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?

Therapeutic Solutions offers TMS, one of the most innovative new therapies for treating depression, including patients with long-standing chronic depression.

TMS is especially effective for:

  • Individuals whose condition does not improve by taking anti-depressants
  • Individuals who cannot tolerate the side effects of anti-depressants and therefore cannot take them.

Our patients often describe the effects of TMS as “cloud lifting.” This treatment can be so successful that some patients are able to reduce or stop taking their medication altogether.

We now offer intermittent Theta Burst TMS Therapy (iTBS)

Clinicians have options to deliver treatments with Theta Burst TMS Therapy.

The difference:

  • Standard TMS can take approximately 37 minutes per session.
  • Theta burst TMS can take approximately only 3 minutes per session.

iTBS TMS Therapy can decrease time and may potentially increase efficacy. Contact us to find out more!

We also offer Stanford Neuromodulation Therapy (SNT)

The SNT protocol is TMS at an accelerated and more effective pace.

The SNT protocol :

  • Incorporates the use of a functional MRI scan to precisely determine the location of the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex. With this tool we can find the precise location in the brain that is most likely to respond to stimulation and relieve symptoms of depression.
  • Treatment Sessions last for 5 days rather than 6 to 9 weeks.

We are now offering the SNT protocol at both locations as a self-pay option because it is not covered by insurance. Contact us to find out more!

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation works by:

  •  Using an electromagnetic field to affect the part of your brain that regulates mood.
  • The treatment emits short pulses of this magnetic field to the brain’s prefrontal cortex.
  • This stimulation causes the brain cells to change, improving symptoms of depression.
  • As a comparison, an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) machine uses a similar technology.
TMS is an FDA approved treatment for depression. The patient stays awake throughout the procedure, and can return to regular activities immediately afterward. Most treatments are less than 40 minutes long, and are usually given daily for about 6 weeks.

“After three weeks of TMS, I was sleeping less during the day, becoming more involved in my family and their lives again and I noticed the absence of the negative voices in my head. Now, [at the time of writing], I can honestly say that I feel a sense of true contentment. My head feels clearer and my burdens seem lighter. In addition, I’ve been successful at tapering down my antidepressants to less than a fourth my original dose.”
