Is TMS Therapy/Treatment For Me?

Learn today whether or not TMS Therapy will work for you.

TMS treatment is usually prescribed when you have a depression disorder that’s been treatment-resistant or OCD. Your insurance will take a look at whether or not you have it. In many cases, insurance will only cover your treatments if you’ve gone through failed trials.

To learn more please contact us and watch the video to find out if TMS therapy is the right treatment for you.

How Does TMS Therapy Work?

TMS therapy was created to help with depression that otherwise wouldn’t be treated.

Essentially how it works is a magnetic field point to the portion of your brain that “hardwires” everything. It nudges and pushes those circuits to help realign your brain to function more normal.

This is explained in more detail in the brain and if you’d like to learn more please contact us today.
