TMS Therapy in Bradenton & Sarasota

If you suffer from depression, you may want to consider Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS therapy, from NeuroSpa TMS®. This is a pleasant,  safe treatment method that is cleared by the FDA. We’ve seen incredible success providing TMS depression treatment – nearly 53% of our patients report their symptoms are in total remission, while 90 percent report significant improvements in symptoms related to depression and anxiety related to depression. TMS may also help people suffering from depression related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety.

Our remission and improvement rates are far higher than the national average. We believe the reason is that the members of our medical staff are TMS therapy experts, who know how to precisely administer treatment in the most effective manner possible.

TMS Therapy – The Basics

TMS treatment works by sending non-invasive magnetic pulses through the brain, stimulating nerve cells located in the prefrontal cortex. The purpose of TMS treatment is to restore balance in the brain, promoting positive rather than negative activity. Research shows TMS treatment can help improve neurotransmitter functioning and provide relief of the debilitating symptoms associated with depression.

TMS therapy is a groundbreaking method of depression treatment that could not only help reduce your reliance on powerful drugs or counseling, it could also help you lead a life you might not have imagined possible.

The professionals with NeuroSpa TMS® will provide the depression therapy you need to finally free yourself of the symptoms you’ve been experiencing.

Will Insurance Pay for TMS Therapy For Depression?

In many cases, the answer is, “yes” but this all depends on your insurance carrier and their necessary criteria needed to cover treatment. TMS for depression from NeuroSpa TMS® in Bradenton, Sarasota & Lakewood Ranch, Florida is covered by most major providers, such as Medicare and TriCare. Get in touch with our Lakewood Ranch office and one of our friendly team members will happily walk you through your payment options. When you give us a call, you’ll be taking a critical first step toward recovery.

How TMS May Be Able to Help Those Suffering From Depression, PTSD and Anxiety

People having to deal with depression, PTSD and anxiety are searching for relief from the frustrating symptoms they’re experiencing. Here’s some further information on how TMS treatment may help.

Depression and TMS

You may have gone through depression therapy yourself, or you may know someone dealing with this terrible condition. Either way, you’re all too familiar with just how debilitating depression can be. The effects are not only emotional, but also physical. People with depression often experience irritability, anxiousness and deep feelings of sadness. They can also have mysterious aches all over their body that appear for no apparent reason.

A doctor will typically diagnose someone with depression when that person experiences symptoms for two or more weeks. Don’t hesitate to talk to a therapist or another professional if you believe you may have depressive symptoms. Depression is actually a lot more common than you may think. About one in six people suffer from depression at some point in their lives.

In most cases, someone with the condition will see a psychologist, a psychiatrist or some other professional for depression therapy and counseling. These experts often provide a significant amount of help. However, in some instances, people still experience symptoms. TMS from NeuroSpa TMS® may help you find the relief you’ve been seeking.

Many people who suffer from depression often take powerful drugs that can have harsh side effects. TMS therapy could eliminate the need to take medication. It’s a gentle, non-invasive treatment method that helps restore normal brain function. Patients undergoing treatment at NeuroSpa TMS® have enjoyed amazing results – nine out of 10 report a dramatic reduction in symptoms, and nearly six out of 10 say they’ve gone into complete remission.

We hope you give TMS therapy a chance. You won’t experience any systemic side effects, and it may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Anxiety and TMS

A lot of people in the United States – about 40 million, in fact – deal with anxiety. This condition will typically occur when someone deals with an unexpected source of stress and the mind and body have a hard time handling it. Obsessive-compulsive disorder is just one of several types of anxiety.

People with anxiety usually experience the following symptoms:

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Fear
  • Panic
  • Stress
  • Uncontrollable thoughts

There are a lot of anxiety treatment methods, including cognitive behavioral therapy, medication and more. While anxiety therapy and other approaches have been very successful, they don’t always work. But TMS does show promise in terms of helping people with anxiety that is related to their depression. It may be worth it for you to see if it can help. TMS for anxiety is not covered by insurance, but contact NeuroSpa TMS® to see how if we can bring relief to you or a loved one.


Anyone who’s experienced a traumatic situation can develop PTSD. It’s more commonly associated with people who have been through a war, but it can affect others who’ve never stepped on a battlefield. PTSD symptoms include:

  • Doing everything you can to stay away from anything that reminds you of the trauma.
  • Sudden, aggressive outbursts.
  • An inability to escape memories of the trauma.

TMS may be an effective method for depression related PTSD treatment.Insurance does not cover TMS for PTSD, but contact NeuroSpa TMS® in Lakewood Ranch so we can walk you through your potential options.
