WHAT IS TMS?

TMS Therapy Is a Revolutionary Therapy That Is Clinically Proven to Overcome Depression, Anxiety, and More.

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.

Stimulates Underactive Areas of The Brain

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.

No Negative Side Effects

Unlike medication, TMS therapy has little to no negative side effects. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after a session.

A Better Way To Feel Better

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.

An Effective Option

Common Questions that our customers ask

How long does the antidepressant effect of TMS last?

In a clinical trial, 2 out of 3 patients who had either responded to treatment or completely remitted their depression symptoms reported 12 months later that they remained at the level they were at the end of the trial. Additionally, after the trial, only 1 in 3 patients needed to return for ‘maintenance’ TMS sessions.

How does TMS Therapy differ from other alternative therapies that use magnets to treat illnesses

TMS Therapy involves a unique method of using pulsed magnetic fields for therapeutic benefit. The intensity of the magnetic field is similar to that of the magnetic fields used in magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI. These techniques differ radically from the popular use of low intensity, static magnetic fields. These products deliver weak and undirected static fields that are not capable of activating brain cells.

Is TMS Therapy covered by insurance?
