THE SCIENCE OF

TMS THERAPY
EXPLAINED

  • TMS

    Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
    TMS uses a highly targeted magnetic pulse to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood, the left prefrontal cortex. The magnetic pulses have shown to have a positive effect on the neurotransmitters of the brain, leading to reduced depression symptoms and long term remission.
  • Pulses

    targeted magnetic pulse field
    The targeted magnetic pulse field produced from the coil of the TMS machine is similar in strength to that of an MRI machine.
  • Benefit

    Medication free
    68% of patients respond to the treatment, while 45% maintain remission with no systemic side effects.

Brain Activity is

reduced in depression


While the exact cause of the depression is not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain's neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.

A PET scan measures vital functions such as blood flow, oxygen use, and blood sugar (glucose) metabolism.
