What Is Tms Treatment For Depression?
TMS – Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Are you or a loved one suffering from depression? Many people do not realize they suffer from a resistant form of depression. They go through life tolerating symptoms such as decreased energy, irritability, changes in eating habits, difficulty sleeping (or sleeping too much), and a lack of interest in things that once were pleasurable. If medications or other forms of treatment have not been successful, TMS Therapy may be right for you.
Our licensed psychiatrist will conduct an assessment to determine an appropriate course of treatment. This will include going over a brief medical history. All assessments are 100% confidential.
Daily treatments lasting approximately 18 minutes each are done in a comfortable setting. Treatment lasts 6-8 weeks and we offer flexible scheduling to accommodate most schedules.
Our licensed psychiatrist may recommend additional therapies to work in tandem with your TMS Treatment. Certain types of behavioral therapy are often a beneficial component to maintain the positive results from TMS.
Our helpful staff may recommend a variety of therapeutic practices for after your treatment. These may include meditation techniques, anxiety prevention exercises, and sleep hygiene tips. Ask us about these therapeutic practices after your treatment.

“I have battled depression for years and the symptoms only got worse, making it more difficult to overcome negative feelings. My therapist and counselor at the time suggested that I try TMS therapy. It saved my life. It has given me a new life. My hope is that my story will help others who, like myself, found no success with conventional medication treatment, and hopefully their road to recovery will not be as long as mine.”
– John, MDD patient treated with TMS Therapy
“My experience at Pulse has been profound! I’m about a month in and feeling significantly lifted where my general mood baseline has increased. Friends and co-workers have commented on me being lighter and more animated and not all of them are aware that I am getting TMS. I’m very grateful for the crew at Pulse who are friendly, accommodating, and operate with the utmost professionalism. I highly recommend for anyone who has also suffered from depression and other mood disorders.”
