Nicole suffered from depression throughout her life. She experienced dysphonia, fatigue, and suicidal ideation. Nicole did not get any therapeutic relief from medications she tried. Moreover, she became more depressed when her medication made her gain a significant amount of weight. Nicole felt like her life was out of control. She came to TMS NeuroHealth Centers hesitant that anything else would work. It took her some time, but eventually Nicole opened up during treatments to her technician and she enjoyed talking and setting goals during this time. By the end of six weeks, Nicole was better able to cope with stressful situations, she had more energy, was more productive and decided to go back to school. She felt it had increased her mental acuity. “I feel smarter, thanks to TMS.”
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS Therapy) is a safe and effective treatment for individuals diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) who have not experienced satisfactory improvement from antidepressant medication. TMS Therapy can be used in conjunction with medication or as a stand-alone treatment.
TMS Therapy works by delivering magnetic pulses to specific areas of the brain involved in mood regulation – areas known to be underactive in those diagnosed with MDD. The magnetic pulses stimulate brain cells, thereby improving the brain’s ability to regulate mood. FREE Consultation.
