TMS Therapy is a short outpatient procedure performed in a psychiatrist’s office. The treating clinician uses a treatment coil to send a pulsed magnetic field, similar in type and strength to magnetic fields produced by a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, to the part of your brain thought to control mood. 

TMS Therapy is a highly targeted treatment, reaching 2-3 centimeters into the brain directly beneath the treatment coil. The nature of the magnetic field allows it to pass through a patient’s hair, skin and skull and into the mood-regulating area of the brain without being distorted in any way. This method allows for precise, targeted magnetic pulses, minimizing the stimulation of other brain tissue.

These magnetic pulses produce very small electrical currents. The amount of electricity created in the brain is very small and cannot be felt by a patient. These small electric currents can cause the neurons (brain cells) to fire or become active and lead to the release of neurotransmitters (the brain’s chemical messengers). This increase in neuron activity in specific areas of the brain are thought to improve mood and alleviate depression.
