Depression Treatment With No Medication | Santa Monica CA
Understanding TMS Therapy
TMS therapy for depression works by stimulating a part of the brain that is involved in moods and emotions. This is not electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), and does not cause memory loss or harmful side effects.
Magnetic pulses traveling through the brain only reach a small portion directly beneath the treatment coil, affecting mood without causing any adverse side effects.
TMS Therapy for Depression is Available
During TMS therapy for depression, a patient sits in a chair while a helmet is gently placed over the head. An electromagnetic coil inside the helmet painlessly delivers brief magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain that may be “asleep” because of a major depressive disorder. TMS therapy for depression does not require sedation or general anesthesia, patients are fully awake during the treatment.
