TMS - Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy
TMS is like physical therapy for the brain. It uses magnetic pulses, similar in strength to MRI, to reignite dormant connections in the brain and the depression symptoms subside.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is:

Brain mapping is a procedure used to determine the treatment location and energy level of TMS pulses. The pulses are tailored to individual patients, depending on the size and shape of the head. Brain mapping takes place only one time, prior to the first session, and it takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.
You will receive daily (19-minute) TMS treatments Monday through Friday for anywhere from 6 - 9 weeks, depending on your needs and insurance. (Average 36 sessions total)
During a NeuroStar / TMS treatment session, a magnet similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.
TMS is a non-invasive treatment for patients suffering from Major Depressive Disorder who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior anti-depressant medications.
Plymouth Psych Group uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy)
