Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive FDA-approved medical procedure that uses painless magnetic pulses to help activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters. It stimulates your scalp, reaching the mood center of your brain to improve symptoms of anxiety and depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments/medications haven’t been effective.
Depression and anxiety are linked to specific areas of the brain that are known to be underactive. TMS therapy for anxiety in Long Beach stimulates these underactive areas. This therapy can help by improving the brain's ability to regulate mood and overcome depression and anxiety.
Unlike medication, TMS therapy has little to no negative side effects. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after a session.
TMS is often used as a treatment option for people who have not responded well to other forms of treatment, such as medication or psychotherapy, or for people who cannot take certain medications due to side effects or other reasons.
TMS can treat major depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia, and tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
