TMS: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-invasive, FDA approved alternative treatment indicated for use in patients who have Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, as well as ObsessiveCompulsive Disorder and have not responded to psychiatric medication.
It is also an approved treatment for smoking cessation.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has emerged as a promising and effective therapeutic intervention for individuals grappling with treatment-resistant depression (TRD). In cases where traditional treatments such as medications and psychotherapy have proven insufficient, 

TMS offers a novel approach by utilizing magnetic fields to stimulate specific regions of the brain associated with mood regulation. As a result, TMS stands as a beacon of hope in the realm of mental health, offering renewed possibilities for individuals seeking effective solutions to break free from the grip of persistent depressive symptoms.
