What is TMS?
Offered at our clinic in Manhattan, TMS is a safe and well-tolerated therapy for treating depression, OCD, and anxiety. The procedure is non-intrusive, and patients stay awake throughout the therapy session. Using a magnetic device, small electric currents are produced to stimulate areas of the brain causing disorder symptoms.

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.
