TMS Therapy – A Versatile and Effective Approach to Depression

TMS therapy utilizes magnetic fields to stimulate specific regions of the brain associated with mood regulation and mental health. This non-invasive method has gained recognition for its efficacy in treating a range of conditions, particularly when traditional treatments have not yielded optimal results.

TMS therapy is entirely safe. The magnetic fields do not provide any measurable level of radiation, and there are no known long term side effects. Stimulating those areas of the brain has the potential to address many common conditions, including:

  • Major Depressive Disorder
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Treatment-Resistant Depression

Aware Behavioral Health’s TMS therapy program is designed to be adaptable, catering to the varied needs and medical histories of our diverse patient population.

The Benefits of TMS Therapy at Aware Behavioral Health

TMS therapy offers several advantages, making it an appealing choice for many individuals. It is primarily used for depression, but Dr. Sehdev may recommend it for other struggles as well. Benefits include:

  • Non-Invasive Treatment – TMS therapy does not require surgery or implantation of electrodes, making it a less daunting option for those wary of invasive procedures.
  • Minimal Side Effects – Compared to traditional psychiatric medications, TMS therapy typically presents with fewer and less severe side effects.
  • Efficacy in Treatment-Resistant Cases – TMS has shown promise in providing relief for individuals who have not responded to conventional treatments, offering new hope for recovery.
  • Compatibility with Other Treatments – TMS therapy can be used in conjunction with medication and psychotherapy, allowing for a comprehensive, multi-faceted approach to mental health care.

TMS therapy involves a series of treatment sessions, typically conducted over four to six weeks. During each session, the patient sits comfortably while a TMS coil is positioned near their head. Magnetic pulses are then directed to specific brain regions, stimulating neural activity to alleviate symptoms of mental health disorders.
