What is TMS Therapy?

TMS Therapy is a cutting-edge, non-invasive technique used to manage and treat various mental health disorders. This innovative therapeutic approach uses magnetic fields to stimulate specific brain regions associated with mental health conditions.

TMS Therapy operates on a simple yet powerful principle. By targeting areas of the brain that are underperforming or underactive due to illnesses like depression, anxiety, or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), TMS can stimulate these areas, promoting healthier brain activity and alleviating symptoms.

At Clearwave Mental Health in New York, we utilize this advanced and progressive approach to help our patients regain control over their mental health and improve their overall quality of life. Learn more about How TMS Therapy Works on our comprehensive page.

Does TMS Therapy Work?

Over the years, research and clinical trials have established TMS Therapy’s efficacy. In a 2019 study, 66% of people with treatment-resistant depression improved significantly after receiving TMS therapy combined with psychotherapy, with 56% reaching remission. This FDA-cleared treatment is recognized and covered by many major health insurance providers and has successfully delivered over 15,000 effective treatments at our Clearwave Mental Health practice.

Our experienced team of medical professionals has witnessed the life-changing results that TMS Therapy can bring about. Patients who have previously struggled to find effective treatments for their mental health conditions have found renewed hope and tangible progress with this innovative approach.

When Should I Seek TMS Therapy?

An estimated 280 million people have depression worldwide, making mental health support critical. TMS Therapy plays a crucial role in this scenario. If you or someone you care about are battling a mental health condition such as depression, anxiety, OCD, or bipolar disorder, and traditional treatments have been insufficient, it’s vital to consider options like TMS Therapy. This innovative treatment could be the breakthrough to secure a healthier, happier future.

Additionally, TMS Therapy has shown promising results as a treatment for postpartum depression. This condition, affecting many new mothers, can be particularly challenging to treat using traditional methods. With its non-invasive nature and minimal side effects, TMS Therapy presents a supportive, empathetic approach to helping mothers navigate their way out of postpartum depression.

It is a safe and effective alternative to medication, offering a proven path toward remission for those feeling trapped by their conditions. TMS therapy can allow many individuals to break free from their struggles and reclaim control over their lives.

How TMS therapy works?

What is a TMS Treatment Like?

Hear our patients tell their stories

We have been performing Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) since December, 2009. We were the first practice to offer TMS in the Hudson Valley, New York. We have performed thousands of treatments over the past years and have the most experience of any TMS clinicians in our region.

What you can expect during your TMS treatment:

During treatment, you will relax in our spa-like chair. Our suite offers a relaxing environment to listen to music, audiobook, watch a movie or your favorite show on TV while undergoing TMS therapy. Your TMS session will be a short outpatient procedure that lasts about 30 minutes. You can also speak with the TMS technician whenever necessary if you have any questions during or after the treatment. One of the benefits of TMS is that after the treatment you can return to your normal routine, including driving.

Your first treatment session:

Our doctors will go through with you the consent form and give you ample time to have your questions asked and fully answered. After the consent is signed, our doctors will determine how to most effectively administer TMS treatments. They will perform a test to identify the treatment strength needed, called a motor threshold. This test identifies the magnetic field strength that will be used in your treatment. This field strength is customized for each patient to deliver the correct treatment dose. To do this our doctors will stimulate the brain on the left side of your head to get your right hand to move. Everyone has their own individual motor threshold. Our team will provide the TMS treatment at a dose just above your motor threshold.

After this initial procedure, our doctors will determine the specific location of where the TMS treatment will be applied and the treatment coil will be moved to that location. Our team will strive for the optimal treatment. This approach has resulted in our strong clinical and safety experience.

During your treatment session our technician will place the magnetic coil gently against the front part of your scalp and then the TMS Therapy System will deliver rapid series of “pulses” of the magnetic field usually in 4 second intervals with 10 pulses delivered per second with a rest interval in between. The pulses will feel like tapping on your scalp. Most patients find the sensation “different” and some find it uncomfortable in the first few treatments. We are experienced in making TMS Therapy comfortable, safe and effective.

After TMS Therapy

Immediately following each treatment session, you may return to your normal daily routine, including driving. During or after treatment you may experience headache or discomfort at the site of stimulation. These side effects are mild to moderate in intensity and lessen as further treatment sessions are administered. You can take a common over the counter pain remedies such as acetaminophen to manage these symptoms.

What Is a Typical Treatment Course Like?

Typically a recommended course of TMS treatment is 36 sessions, occurring initially 5 times per week for the first several weeks and then slowly decreasing the frequency of treatment. Our experienced psychiatrists may adjust your treatment schedule based on their clinical expertise and your treatment response.  At the Clearwave Mental Health, we work to accommodate your schedule to help you achieve optimal results.

Is TMS Therapy Uncomfortable?

No, the most common potential side effect related to treatment is a light headache and scalp discomfort during treatment sessions. These side effects are generally mild to moderate, and occur less frequently after the first week of treatment.

Can I take antidepressants while receiving TMS Therapy?

Yes. In clinical trials, TMS therapy was safely administered with and without other antidepressant medications.
