Very Effective

TMS therapy provides long-term results for people suffering from depression. It is backed by multiple clinical trials that show it’s a safe and effective treatment and can also be helpful for OCD, PTSD, and anxiety. In an open-label study, 68% of the participants who were followed for one year after therapy for depression maintained the benefits of TMS. Although this is a long-term treatment, the effects of TMS on your depression may not be permanent. Some people need maintenance treatments, but usually only once per year.


Free from the Side Effects of Medication

Anti-depressant medications can cause undesired side effects. TMS therapy doesn’t involve medication, so you won’t have to experience any of the adverse effects of medications. Fewer than 5% of TMS patients stop treatment because of adverse effects. The most common side effects is a slight discomfort at the treatment site, during treatment. This initial side effect normals subsides after the first week of treatment.
