Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a safe, painless treatment for depression and certain other conditions without the use of medications. TMS uses brief, MRI strength magnetic pulses to stimulate the parts of the brain associated with the symptoms of the illness. Unlike medications, which act throughout the entire body, TMS does not cause side effects such as weight gain or sexual dysfunction. TMS can be effective even if you have failed to respond to antidepressant medications. Unlike other treatments, such as electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), TMS does not cause cognitive side effects or memory problems. No anesthesia or sedation is used, so you can drive yourself to and from treatment and even go back to work or school right after a treatment. There is no need to disrupt your usual routine.
Currently TMS is covered by most major insurance companies as well as Kaiser Permanente with a Kaiser physician referral. Our case-managers are specially trained to present your needs in an attmept to get TMS covered by your insurance. Learn more.

During that time, it was probably the darkest time in my life. I was sad and miserable all the time. Before, when I was going through depression, I felt hopeless. Since TMS, my perspective on life has been so positive that I know there is hope.Martha F
At first I thought that this treatment was just the “same old, same old.” In fact, it turned out to be a very relaxing time which I am now trying to duplicate at home as part of a regular morning routine. I always felt that the staff were there to support me completely through follow-up sessions and trying to make me comfortable. TMS exceeded my wildest expectations. Almost immediately the world looked bright and new. I so appreciate the opportunity to find a very different world and life.TMS Patient
