Deep Transcranial Magenetic Stimulation Therapy
If you are suffering and looking for a solution, TMS could be the answer for your depression.
If you have tried multiple anti-depressants with inadequate results, OR if you prefer a non-medicated and non-invasive treatment for managing depression without the harsh side effects of drugs, then TMS Therapy (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) may be for you.
TMS Can Help Overcome...
Deep Sadness, Low Energy, Lack of Interest, Moods & Irritability, and Suicidal Thoughts.
Non-Invasive, Non-Drug Treatment, Non-Sedating, and Non-Systemic – nothing enters the bloodstream.
Deep TMS and PTSD
Following the MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) protocol, we treat PTSD with five sessions a week for up to six weeks, then a three-week period of less frequent sessions. After a regular round of sessions, patients have reported that their PTSD and MDD symptoms are less intense and that they are much less likely to experience them.
Each person’s experience of PTSD is different, although common symptoms of PTSD you may notice improving include:
Vivid flashbacks, as if the traumatic event is being relived
Intrusive thoughts and images
Intense distress at actual or symbolic reminders of the traumatic event
Physical sensations, such as pain, sweating, nausea, and trembling
Extreme alertness or ‘hypervigilance’
Irritability and aggressive behavior
Self-destructive behavior, such as drug and alcohol abuse
