What is TMS?
Transcranial magnetic stimulation, also known as TMS (rTMS), is an in-office, FDA-approved, non-drug, non-invasive treatment for people suffering from major depressive disorder (MDD). rTMS therapy is CE (Europe) to assist with Postpartum Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, (PTSD), other anxiety disorders, tinnitus, smoking cessation, and other neurological disorders.
The Magstim name is at the forefront of the evolution of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) from its conception as a valuable research tool. Our new machine, Horizon Performance with StimGuide, allows the machine to ensure simple, precise, and consistent coil positioning by aligning 4 parameters-contact, XY location, tilt, and rotation. As research in the TMS world allows for new and improved technology, we are dedicated to providing you the best, state-of-the-art, holistic mental health care. Allowing for the wider efficacy when stimulating the neuronal circuits in the prefrontal cortex, which is under-functioning in people with MDD.
This low-stress procedure administers electromagnetic pulses without any sedation or anesthesia. Completed on an outpatient basis, rTMS is completed in 18-20 minutes under the supervision of the TMS coordinator. After relaxing 18-20 minutes, people undergoing the treatment are free to leave without supervision and continue living their life.
