TMS works by sending gentle, harmless magnetic pulses throughout the patient’s brain. These pulses stimulate nerve cells located in the prefrontal cortex. That might sound a little imposing, but these pulses are not uncomfortable at all. You’ll be very relaxed through the entire session.
TMS is a form of depression therapy that brings the brain back into balance. Rather than your brain undergoing primarily negative activity, TMS promotes positive activity instead.
According to research, TMS treatment may help improve the ways in which neurotransmitters in the brain function. When this happens, that reduces the often debilitating symptoms that people with depression experience.
Many people who undergo TMS therapy could find that they no longer have to rely on counseling or strong medications. This could help them lead a life they might have only dreamed was possible.

People who have to deal with depression and anxiety/PTSD related to depression often feel overwhelmed. But TMS treatment may be able to help with these issues. Here’s a quick look at how that might be possible.
If you’ve ever experienced depression therapy, or a loved one has to deal with this horrible disorder on a daily basis, you know how hard it can be. Depression can be debilitating, not only from an emotional standpoint but a physical one as well. Sufferers often have to endure not only profound feelings of sadness, but they may also be irritable and anxious on a regular basis. Some people with depression can even experience aches throughout their body that seem to appear out of the blue.
A doctor will typically make a diagnosis of depression after symptoms have occurred for about two or three weeks or more. If you think you might have depression, please talk to a therapist, a psychologist, a psychiatrist, or another qualified professional as soon as you can. Don’t be ashamed, because you’re not alone. About 16 percent of people – or one person in every six – have to deal with this problem at one time or another.
After seeing a professional, many people still suffer from depression symptoms. That’s where NeuroSpa TMS® comes in. It could help you put your symptoms in the past.
In addition to counseling from a therapist, some people with depression must often take powerful medications – often times, these medications can have troublesome side effects. TMS therapy could help you without the need for medication. This non-invasive, gentle method of depression treatment can help get your brain back into proper balance. The results have been very encouraging – about 81% of our patients report fewer symptoms, while 53% experienced total remission.
Call today to see if TMS therapy could be right for you. There are no systemic side effects, and it could make all the difference in helping you get back to normal.
If you’ve ever gone through an extremely traumatic experience, you might be suffering from PTSD as a result. Most people think that people only develop PTSD after going through a war, but it can affect anyone. Symptoms include aggressive outbursts that occur suddenly, and going out of your way to avoid anything that reminds you of the experience. Many people with PTSD also find it nearly impossible to avoid memories of their trauma.
TMS could be an effective way to treat depression related PTSD. While TMS for PTSD is not covered by insurance, we can explore potential options with you. Just get in touch with NeuroSpa TMS® in Citrus Park to learn more.
Anxiety is also a common disorder, affecting approximately 40 million in the U.S. alone. It usually occurs when a person unexpectedly experiences some sort of stress, and their body and mind simply can’t handle it. If you deal with stress, panic or fear, you have difficulty getting to sleep, or you have thoughts you can’t control, there’s a chance you might have anxiety.
Anxiety treatment comes in several forms, including medication and cognitive behavioral therapy. In many cases, conventional anxiety therapy works very well – in some cases, however, it doesn’t. TMS has shown promising results when it comes to treating people with anxiety related to depression. Insurance doesn’t cover TMS for anxiety, but you may have other options.
