What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS treatment delivers a repetitive magnetic pulse that stimulates nerve cells and produces changes in neuronal activity in the areas of your brain related to mood control and depression. This method for treating depression has proven to be effective when other treatments have been unsuccessful.
