TMS Therapy

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

If you are experiencing constant sadness, nervousness, low energy, have difficulty focusing, have low quality of sleep, no appetite, or no longer have joy in activities you once loved, these symptoms may be indicating that you are suffering from depression, anxiety, mood disorders, or other mental health conditions.

What is TMS?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS) is a revolutionary treatment that provides hope for patients that have not received satisfactory results from medication and psychotherapy. TMS is a non-invasive brain stimulation therapy that uses repetitive electromagnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in your brain.

  • Non-Invasive
  • Does Not Require Anesthesia
  • Drug Free
  • FDA Approved

What Does TMS Therapy Treat?​

TMS for Depression

While there are many medications for the treatment of depression such as antidepressants and psychotherapy, they do not work for everyone. One-third of people who suffer from depression do not respond well to medications, with many finding that the negative side effects from these outweighing any benefits derived from them.

TMS is a FDA approved therapy that has been proven to be a safe, effective alternative for people who have not responded to antidepressant medication.

Other Conditions Treated by TMS

Several studies have found that TMS treatments can also benefit those who suffer from the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Migraines
  • PTSD
  • Bi-Polar Disorder
  • Restless Leg Syndrome

How Does TMS Work?

TMS Therapy involves the use of magnetic pulses sent safely through the skull and into the brain, making it a safe, non-invasive treatment option that brings little or no side effects. These pulses stimulate a change in neuromodulation allowing improvement of symptoms and helps to improve one’s quality of life.

Because TMS treats depression at its source (the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex area of the brain, just above the left eyebrow), one of the greatest benefits of TMS therapy is that it provides long-term relief from symptoms.

Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS)

In addition to traditional TMS, Revitalist also offers Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS). TBS is a new form of brain stimulation treatment that more accurately reflects the natural neuronal activity and rhythms in the brain.

Theta burst treatments are shorter in duration and in some patients it has been shown to produce stronger and longer-lasting relief.

Why Choose TMS Treatments?

Since 2010 TMS therapy has been recommended by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) for the treatment of major depressive disorder in adults who have not received satisfactory improvement from other antidepressant treatments. 

TMS requires a short time commitment for each treatment and is performed in our clinic; it does not involve surgery or cause pain so requires no anesthesia or pre-medication, enabling you to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. 

TMS therapy is covered by most major insurance providers, including Medicare.
