TMS is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic pulses directed toward the prefrontal cortex of the brain. The magnetic pulses change the magnetic field and stimulate the neurons within the mood center. The treatment lasts between 4-6 weeks, 5 days a week, and approximately 40 minutes per session. The treatment is short term but can result in a long lasting relief.
The TMS Wellness Institute has received mixed reviews from healthgrades.com. It received a rating of 2.9 out of 5 stars.
