Proven Safe and Effective. TMS is a premier alternative treatment for depression.
About TMS Therapy
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a safe, effective, innovative FDA approved therapy for
the treatment of Major Depression and certain other neuropsychiatric disorders. Using highly focused,
MRI strength magnetic pulses, TMS activates specific regions of the brain which regulate mood.
TMS uses the same strength of magnetic fields as MRIs, which have been used in tens of millions of
patients around the world. It is a short outpatient procedure performed by Dr. Vine in the outpatient
mental health clinic at Psych Recovery, Inc.
Unlike medications, which act throughout the entire body, TMS does not cause side effects such as weight
gain or sexual dysfunction. TMS does not cause cognitive side effects or memory problems that are some
times related to electro-convulsive therapy (ECT). TMS Therapy does not use anesthesia or sedation so
patients can resume their daily activities immediate after treatment.
