AN INTRODUCTION TO TMS SERVICES
What is TMS?
TMS stands for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. It is an FDA cleared, non-medication based treatment for depression. Research is also showing TMS to be beneficial in helping those dealing with conditions such as PTSD, OCD, Addictions, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, and Chronic Pain. TMS is widely researched and poised to dramatically change the treatment of psychological and neurological conditions.
We are excited to be able to offer this treatment and participate in most insurance plans to reduce costs for our patients.
Most patients will pay less for their care than the cost of psychiatric medications.
Once all medical and financial arrangements are finalized, often the same day that you meet with the physician, we will start your TMS treatments. You will set a time of day that is convenient for you. You will return 5 days a week until your treatment is complete, usually 4-6 weeks based on the nature of your symptoms.
We promise to make the entire process as comfortable and straight forward as possible.
• During TMS depression treatment sessions, clients remain alert and awake.
• After the session, clients can return home independently and resume their normal daily routine
• TMS does NOT hurt. While transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) clients sometimes report mild headaches and scalp discomfort after the first treatment, the minor irritation subsides after a few sessions.
If interested, please let one of the front office staff or treatment staff aware that you are interested in this effective treatment.
