TMS is a revolutionary treatment that uses a highly targeted non-invasive magnetic Pulse to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain that controls depression called the left prefrontal cortex. The Magnetic Pulses have a positive stimulating effect on the neurotransmitters of the brain, reducing symptoms of depression.
Similar in strength to an MRI machine, our TMS therapy chair delivers non-invasive magnetic stimulation directly to targeted areas of the brain, painlessly and in the comfort of a peaceful environment.
75% of patients respond positively to the treatment, while 55% maintain remission with no systemic side effects.
Dr. William Nathan Upshaw is the Medical Director of Neurospa TMS. Ever since his first encounter with a TMS chair in 2010, Dr. Upshaw was not only inspired by its remarkable potential but insatiably determined to provide this breakthrough therapy to as many people as possible. Dr. Upshaw has received advanced training in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Tampa Bay Institute for Psychodynamic Studies, and has received official certification in TMS and ECT therapy from the MUSC Health Institute of Psychiatry. Today, Dr. Upshaw’s holistic experience in the field has transformed him into one of Florida’s leading advocates for widespread accessibility to TMS therapy.

While the exact cause of the depression is not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between our brain cells.
A PET scan measures vital functions such as blood flow, oxygen use, and blood sugar (glucose) metabolism. (Shown on the image here)
TMS therapy works to restore healthy neurotransmission to the affected area of the brain where these chemical imbalances exist, resulting in positive brain activity.
