TMS Therapy is focused on the areas of the brain that control mood so it does not negatively affect thinking and memory functions, or any other normal brain functions.
During TMS Therapy, there is no need for sedation or anesthesia; patients are awake, alert and are able to resume normal activities after a treatment session. We administer TMS in a convenient outpatient setting, so there is no hospitalisation needed.
TMS is 100% free of medication side effects. Unlike traditional antidepressant medications, TMS Therapy does not cause weight gain, sexual dysfunction, nausea, fatigue or negative cognitive effects.
An average of 20 sessions is typically needed, with sessions held at least twice per week. After a course of TMS Therapy, most patients enjoy long-lasting benefits.
TMS Therapy uses magnetic energy to stimulate brain cells which helps them to naturally release needed chemicals necessary for proper mood regulation.
We only apply protocols which have shown the latest clinical efficacy. By combining TMS with Psychotherapy, studies show this is effective in 66% of the population who suffer Depression.
TMS is recommended for people diagnosed with Depression who have not responded to medications. neuroCare’s experienced Psychiatric staff will supervise your program with a referral from your doctor.
Practitioners working in neuroCare Clinics apply state-of-the-art assessment methods to gain a better understanding of a person’s neurophysiology and to recommend a more targeted therapy program.
