TMS is fast acting, FDA-approved, medication-free and covered by most insurance providers.
The Idea Behind TMS
The idea behind how TMS works is a simple one. It is based on the fact that the brain is not just a chemical organ, it’s also an electrical one. With that being said, depression is not simply due to only a chemical imbalance in the brain. Depressed brains have less electrical activity in certain areas than non-depressed brains. We can use TMS to stimulate underperforming areas of the brain and this helps relieve depression.
