Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate the nerve cells in your brain to improve your symptoms. It activates certain areas in the brain to treat mood disorders like; depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD and more. TMS can also treat substance abuse, pain and migraines. TMS does not require any anesthesia. There are plenty of ways in how TMS treatments are conducted, one of which is an electromagnetic coil placed against your scalp. The coil, painlessly delivers magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the part of your brain controlling moods.
Where traditional modalities of psychotherapy don’t work or your treatment plans have side effects that worsen your symptoms then TMS might be the right next step for you. With TMS treatments, there is no one size fits all approach. At SayMed we tailor each of your symptoms to your own personalized plan. The best part of a TMS treatment is that it takes about 40 minutes each session and once it’s done you’re able to go to your normal day to day activities.
