What is TMS?
TMS in Brooklyn has proven positive outcomes in clients suffering from major depression, addictions, or OCD. Stimulation from magnetic pulses is used in therapy to target areas of the brain to relieve symptoms associated with these disorders over a course of treatment.
Benefits of TMS - Video
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in the treatment of depression.
As technology advances researchers are finding more ways to treat illnesses in the brain without medications.
During the TMS procedure, the patient wears a padded helmet which activates the magnetic pulses. These repeated magnetic wave pulses reach the areas of the brain which are affected by the patient’s particular illness.
How it works
TMS therapy in Brooklyn is a safe and effective procedure used to stimulate the brain’s cells with intense magnetic fields. It is typically prescribed when other treatments have failed for depression, OCD, and addiction. Magnets are attached to the client’s head and treatment is administered by a clinician who adjusts stimulation levels. It is painless and most patients experience zero to mild side effects, however, some people may experience mild headaches, sensitivity, or itchiness or pain near the treatment location. With more sessions, these effects typically get better and over-the-counter painkillers can relieve discomfort.
