An Overview of Our TMS Therapy Program
Wondering what TMS therapy is? This depression treatment is entirely non-invasive, using magnetic pulses to stimulate areas of the brain. This safe, painless, and FDA-approved therapy works differently than other traditional treatment approaches.
By stimulating areas of the brain that control mood, TMS therapy can make a lasting impact on depression. Treatment sessions are quick and straightforward, taking place in our comfortable office setting. Sessions take place over the course of a few weeks, and you go home with no lasting side effects. It involves a series of sessions, typically five times per week for four to six weeks.
What to Expect in a TMS Therapy Program
TMS is a non-invasive procedure, meaning it does not require any kind of surgery or medications. The process is simple and painless—clients only need to sit in a comfortable chair while the magnetic field is administered through a coil placed against their forehead. Typically, clients report feeling relaxed during the procedure with no feelings of discomfort or pain.
A TMS treatment program is a safe and effective alternative to medications. However, it’s important to speak with your doctor about all the treatment options available to you. If you’ve exhausted traditional treatment options on your journey to healing, Columbia Associates can help you determine if TMS therapy is right for you. Your comfort, control, and well-being are our top priorities, and we’re here to answer your questions and give you the information you need to find the right solution.
