TMS stands for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. It is a safe, non-invasive, non-medication treatment for clinical depression that uses magnetic fields to stimulate the specific part of the brain known to control mood.

TMS is used on people with mental health conditions that have not seen success with medications and/or antidepressants. TMS has extremely limited side effects, especially when compared to traditional medications and antidepressants, so it is also a treatment option for people who may be suffering from side effects while trying to experience relief from their condition.

Many patients find that TMS is an amazingly effective treatment option. The FDA labeled TMS therapy to be marketed as a treatment for clinical depression in 2008.

TMS therapy is often administered in conjunction with other types of treatment, such as psychotherapy or (possibly continuing) medication management. At Mindful Health Solutions, our expert providers will work with you to create the best treatment plan for your specific needs.

Since its FDA approval as a depression treatment in 2008, further studies have shown that it has the potential to treat a wide range of conditions, many of which can be debilitating. Although the Mindful Health Solutions team focuses primarily on alleviating the symptoms of treatment-resistant depression, our clinics also provide treatment for other conditions like:

  • Anxiety
  • Autism in adults
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Body dysmorphia
  • Certain types of chronic pain
  • Memory disorders
  • Migraines
  • Mild cognitive impairment
  • Mild dementia
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • PTSD
  • Smoking cessation

There is also evidence TMS may help in recovery from stroke. Research and studies on the impact of TMS are continuing, and we at Mindful Health Solutions are excited to be at the forefront of it.

TMS therapy can be a great option to consider for people who have Major Depressive Disorder or other mental health conditions but have not had success with medications or antidepressants. It can also be a treatment option for patients who are concerned about experiencing the side effects of medications or antidepressants.
