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 that regulate mood.

TMS uses the same powerful 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 and his highly-trained, experienced staff 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 sometimes associated with electro-convulsive therapy (ECT). TMS Therapy does not use anesthesia or sedation, so patients can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.
