Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
Transcranial magnetic stimulation – or TMS, for short – is an FDA-approved therapy used to treat people with a mental health diagnosis who have not seen satisfactory improvement from medication. It is clinically proven to help patients suffering from depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and other brain health issues. Since 2010, the American Psychiatric Association has recommended TMS for the treatment of major depressive disorder.
