  • TMS:  Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

What is TMS? 

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a safe, effective, way to treat depression without medications 

• It was invented in 1985, first used for depression in 1994 & FDA approved in 2008

What Does TMS Feel Like? 

• Gentle tapping on the scalp 

• Painless & non-invasive
• No surgery, sedation, or anesthesia 

Patients can resume normal daily activity after their treatment including driving, school and work

Is TMS for me? 

• Are you getting partial or zero results from anti-depressant medication?
• Do the side effects of anti-depressant medication outweigh the benefits?
• Are you taking more than one anti-depressant medication?
• Is your depression interfering with your ability to function? 

Who is NOT a candidate for TMS? 

• Anyone with a history of seizures 

Anyone with metal in their brain (such as bullets or implants) 

• Anyone with a cardiac pacemaker

How long does each session take? 

• TMS is an in-office procedure that takes between 8 and 38 minutes each session

• 4 or 5 sessions per week for 4-6 weeks 

• Total of 20-30 sessions

Can I keep taking my medications and/or doing therapy?
• Yes

Is TMS covered by insurance? 

• we are having an opening special, 1 week, no charge

• Many insurance policies pay up to 50% for each session 

• Payment plans are available to spread the cost over time (carecredit.com) 

• For us, helping people feel better and be present for their family and friends is the most important thing, so we work with you to find a payment that you feel comfortable with if possible

Is it safe? 

Yes. There are no serious short or long term side effects. The odds of having a seizure are 1/30,000. None of our patients have experienced this. 

After 6 weeks, is it done, or will more be needed? 

1/3 of patients nationally get continued treatment but less often (about once per week). For us it is closer to 2-4%. 

What are the chances it will work? 

Studies have found that the odds of Remission (full recovery: 95-100% reduction of symptoms) are about 1/3, and the odds of Response (50% or more reduction of symptoms) are about 1/3. 

What if the treatment does not work? 

There are advanced TMS treatments also available including: Theta Burst Stimulation, Deep Coil TMS, Individualized EEG Frequency Stimulation and Neuro-navigation. 

•  other options can be discussed at your first visit

The TrueMind Clinic is committed to safely helping people with the most effective new technology. 

For a limited time we are offering the first week free of charge.

How does it work?

• TMS uses a powerful magnetic field to stimulate and strengthen part of the frontal lobe of the brain (DLPFC) 

• This stimulation excites neurons, which are under-active in patients with depression

• This increase in brain activity causes an increase in BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor) and certain neurotransmitters, this increases connections between brain cells (axonal sprouting) thereby improving brain function and mood in patients with depression.

Can TMS be used with other conditions? 

• Yes, if a patient has depression, and seeks TMS treatment, often symptoms from the other condition may be improved

What if I don’t have depression? 

Some other conditions can be treated with TMS, this is called “off label”. There are other treatments also available for other conditions.

In their own words... 

“I was skeptical at first, I had so many questions. But everything fell into place, I felt more motivated so I had the energy to keep going. I am grateful that my psychiatrist suggested looking into this.” Gloria J., High School English Teacher

“I don’t get tired anymore because of my busy mind. I used to get overwhelmed, too many things coming at me at once. Now, I do one thing. I don’t feel anxiety about all the other thing, and when I finish, I do another. I used to drink 2-4 coffees per a day, now just one in the morning. I used to push myself, now it feels effortless. My best competitive time was 1:35, now it is down to 1:15.”   Kay B., World Class Athlete

“Everything is clearer, I can be more present at school and at home. Not only is my depression gone, but my attention and memory is better than it has ever been.” Benjamin S., Student

“Even though I did it for relief from depression, it also helped with my Parkinson’s disease. I can think again, walk better, enjoy things and roll over in bed for the first time in years.” Bill T., Retired Judge

“Thank you for always being available when we had questions or concerns and thank you for giving us our daughter back. It is so nice to see her smile again. It has been 11 months now and she still has not had any return of depression.” Janet J., (Mother)
