Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) means stimulating the brain directly using small electrical fields. TMS has been proven safe and can be very effective. Totally non-invasive method and a non-drug option, TMS only influences the brain and does not alter the rest of the body’s chemistry. In fact, by reestablishing the Neuro-Chemical balance, it stabilizes the whole mind-body integration.
TMS is highly effective therapy which reaches the part of your brain closely involved in emotion and mood. It’s quite small. Doctors know it by name as the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and believe it is one of the most inter-connected parts of the brain. This is the most evolved area in the whole universe! Once TMS targets the DLPFC location in your brain, it enhances your neurochemical balance in your brain.
At the end of their treatments, patients who had received rTMS Therapy were four times more likely to achieve remission compared to patients receiving alternative treatment. More than 1/2 experienced significant improvement in their depression symptoms and more than 1/3 experienced complete remission. Patients treated with the rTMS System also experienced significant improvement in a multitude of other symptoms including, panic, anxiety and physical symptoms (such as poor motivation, appetite changes, aches and pains, and lack of energy) associated with depression. rTMS Therapy is also used concurrently with antidepressants as per the doctor’s prescription. By the end of the 12-month period, 2 out of 3 patients who had either responded or completely remitted after TMS treatment remained at the symptom levels they reported at the end of the treatment phase.
