Revolutionize Your Mental Wellness Journey
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is an innovative mental wellness therapy that involves passing gentle electromagnetic waves painlessly through the scalp to stimulate certain brain cells. TMS is an FDA-approved treatment for major depressive disorder (MDD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), smoking cessation, and anxiety symptoms in people with depression. Furthermore, thanks to the pioneering work by Dr. Bonci and collaborators, in Europe TMS received the CE European Community (CE) approval for the treatment of addiction as well. Many research studies have shown very promising results for its PTSD, cognitive impairment and certain neurodegenerative disorders as well.
Many people try TMS when other treatment methods such as antidepressants or psychotherapy have been ineffective, or when the results from these therapies are only partially effective. In these cases, TMS can be added seamlessly to the other treatments. TMS can be a life-changing experience. Two-thirds of people achieve full remission from depression or significant improvements in mood, including those who have previously been resistant to treatment.
