What Is TMS?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, sometimes known by its acronym, TMS, is a non-invasive, non-systemic, treatment for depression. In October 2008, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved NeuroStar TMS Therapy as a treatment for major depression. TMS Therapy may be indicated for individuals whose depressive symptoms have not been significantly reduced by antidepressant medications and psychotherapy.

Safe & Effective

As an FDA-approved treatment, TMS Therapy has undergone rigorous clinical trials to determine its safety and efficacy.

In-Office Treatment

TMS Therapy is performed 5 days per week, for a period of 4-6 weeks in a psychiatrist's office.

No Side Effects

TMS Therapy is a non-drug, non-systemic treatment option, so it does not have the same side effects that are associated with traditional anti-depressant medications.

Minimal Discomfort

Temporary pain or discomfort at or near the treatment site during TMS Therapy is common, but typically resolves within the first week.

A Revolutionary Treatment Option Targeting Depression At Its Source

At California Medical Behavioral Health, we believe that there is no “one-size fits all” approach to treating depression. While anti-depressants and psychotherapy can be viable treatment options for some individuals, they do not work for everyone. 

TMS Therapy targets an area of the brain called the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which is involved in mood regulation and has been shown to be under-active in individuals struggling from depression.

We know it can be overwhelming when deciding between treatment options for yourself or a loved one. That is why we are committed to helping you every step of the way.
