What is TMS Therapy?

FDA-Approved Depression Treatment

TMS is a breakthrough depression treatment. It uses MRI strength magnetic pulses to stimulate areas of the brain that are under active in patients with depression.

Covered by Insurance

TMS therapy is covered under most health insurance plans


TMS is non-systemic (not through the whole body like medication) and non-invasive (not entering the body).

No Changes in Daily Activities

TMS does not require anesthesia or sedation, so patients can resume normal daily activities following each treatment. Treatment typically lasts for about 20 minutes.

Have more questions about TMS Therapy?

How is TMS therapy different from depression medication?

TMS differs from traditional drug therapy because it uses MRI-strength magnetic pulses targeted only to specific regions of the brain that are known to be under-active in those diagnosed with major-depressive disorder or treatment-resistant depression. TMS activates and raises the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain – and can be used in conjunction with medication or as a stand-alone treatment.

Does TMS therapy hurt?

No, TMS therapy is typically regarded as painless, although few patients have reported mild discomfort during treatment. Described as a tapping feeling.

Is there a recovery period after receiving TMS therapy?
There is no recovery time after TMS therapy – you may drive home from your session.
Is TMS the same as shock therapy?
No, TMS is quite different from shock therapy. Shock therapy sends electric currents into the brain to trigger a “reset,” while TMS therapy uses magnetic energy to stimulate specific areas of the brain in order to relieve depression symptoms.
