Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive treatment that stimulates nerves in the brain with magnetic pulses.

During a TMS session, a healthcare professional places a magnetic coil against a person’s scalp or forehead. This coil delivers a magnetic pulse that passes through the skull, stimulating nerves in specific parts of the brain.

When someone has TMS therapy, a doctor administers pulses one after the other in rapid succession. Using this technique produces longer-lasting changes in the brain.

The magnetic pulses are the same type and strength as those that an MRI machine emits. A person will not feel them, and they should not cause any pain.

TMS treats a variety of disorders, ranging from anxiety and depression to OCD and is a treatment modality that is covered by insurance.


The Seamless Process of Healing

Treatment-resistant depression resides in the brain. TMS works beautifully at targeting precise areas of the brain that are in an imbalance. The treatment process usually occurs once a day, five days a week, and can last many weeks. Sessions of healing can range anywhere from 25 to 45 minutes. The process will be custom-tailored to how you respond. We will adjust accordingly to your needs. Our dedicated professionals will ensure everything is ready for your session. As the device is positioned in its proper place, it will go through continuous cycles during the process.
You may feel a modest tapping as the machine cycles through its various phases. Please do not hesitate to inform our professionals of any questions or concerns you may have. TMS devices such as MagVenture as put through rigorous and lengthy approval processes by the FDA. Only a handful of devices are approved. Long-term clinical studies have shown there to be “no adverse effects associated with long-term TMS therapy.” Side effects range from being non-existent to mild. You may experience a meek headache and or mild sensations in the areas around your head and face.

A Groundbreaking Technology

MS is a non-invasive treatment that stimulates your brain with pulses of magnetic energy that has been shown to be powerfully effective in treating depression. Although many FDA-approved devices administer TMS, they are not all created equal. A recent study conducted at the Awakenings KC Clinical Neuroscience Institute produced some interesting results. “We found there to be a significant difference in the average time to remission for MDD between the NeuroStar and MagVenture machines. MagVenture instrument experienced a shorter mean time to remission, higher overall 6-week remission rates.” The authors of the study did note that further research has to be done to make definitive conclusions about the differing degrees of efficacy between TMS devices. Nevertheless, MagVenture has always been at the forefront of innovation in the tricky field of brain science. BHR has been partnering with MagVenture for over three years, offering our patients the highest level of neurological care.

TMS & MagVenture -Brain Health Restoration’s NeuroModulation Partner

“When I started the company (MagVenture) in the early 1990s, it appeared to me there were a lot of unused opportunities in using TMS. I, therefore, decided to develop the most advanced, powerful solutions to brain researchers.”-Stig Wanding Anderson, founder and CEO of MagVenture.
