Depression Treatment & TMS Therapy
TMS ( transcranial magnetic stimulation) ad is used to treat depression by stimulating the brain using electromagnetic fields, which are like those produced by an MRI machine. During TMS Therapy, a magnetic field administered in very short pulses to the part of your brain that has been shown through research as being associated with depression.
