Get Depression Relief Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in South Elgin
Depression is a treatable illness, but not everyone responds well to the standard depression treatments. If you have depression and haven’t found relief from standard treatments such as medication and lifestyle changes, it may be time to consider transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). This depression treatment is proven effective, with 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 65,000 people. In South Elgin, Illinois, Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers offers TMS therapy for people with depression.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression treatment that doesn’t require the use of any mood-changing drugs or any invasive procedures. When you have TMS therapy at HPR Treatment Centers, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. They switch on the TMS device, and the coil delivers magnetic pulses to the prefrontal cortex of your brain.
This is an effective depression treatment because the prefrontal cortex is the region of the brain responsible for regulating mood. In people with depression, the prefrontal cortex is less active than normal. Stimulating the prefrontal cortex with magnetic pulses helps this part of the brain work more effectively, and this helps to lift your mood and ease your symptoms of depression.
How is TMS Different from Other Depression Treatments?
1. TMS Is Drug-Free.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive.
3. TMS Treatment Is Almost Side-Effect Free.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is an in-office, FDA-approved depression treatment that takes between 18 to 19 minutes per session
