Relief From Depression in Just 5 Weeks
Deep TMS therapy can alleviate and reduce symptoms of treatment-resistant depression. Similar to an MRI, Deep TMS uses gentle magnetic fields to stimulate the specific regions of the brain responsible for mood. Therapy begins with 20 minute sessions five days a week, for around four weeks, with maintenance sessions less regularly in the weeks to follow. Deep TMS is highly effective, with nearly 50% of patients citing relief from depressive symptoms during treatment. More impressive, up to 80% of patients cite relief from depressive symptoms by the end of their treatment.

Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of Deep TMS is its low rate of recurrent symptoms. After treatment, many patients find that their cloud has lifted. Plus, unlike other treatments, dTMS has no side effects. Deep TMS has shown amazing results and provides many with breakthrough relief.
How it Works
First, an evaluation: During your first visit to our clinic, we review your medical history and symptoms. We work with you to determine whether or not Deep TMS is the right therapy for you. If we determine that you are a candidate for dTMS, we can then begin treatment.
The dTMS process: While your first Deep TMS treatment takes up to an hour, subsequent treatments are much shorter at around 20 minutes. You sit comfortably in a chair, and a technician fits you with a specialty helmet. This helmet features an H-shaped coil that targets nerve cells with brief pulses, which ease depression symptoms by rebalancing abnormal structures in deeper brain tissues.
During the treatment: You will experience a tapping sensation throughout the treatment, and you’ll be able to listen to music, read a book, watch tv, or be on your phone. Though it is rare, you may experience brief discomfort, including local moderate headaches or irritation. However, it will likely dissipate after the session and can be eased by over the counter analgesics.
After the treatment: You are welcome to lounge in our waiting room or drive yourself home. Since dTMS does not involve anesthesia or hospitalization like other depression treatments, you can continue with your day as planned.
Long term success: After the initial few weeks, treatment may drop to just two or three sessions per week. Many people see improvement by five weeks, and then continue maintenance sessions moving forward. These sessions are eventually phased out when patients become symptom free. Data has shown that patients can experience at least two to three years of remission after dTMS treatment is complete. If after that point depressive symptoms reoccur, patients can be treated again in just a few dTMS sessions.
