Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS Therapy) in San Diego

What is TMS Treatment?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted magnetic field to stimulate areas of the brain that control mood and are typically underactive in people with depression or anxiety.

Is TMS Safe and Effective?

TMS therapy is FDA-approved to treat patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvements from antidepressant medications. Over 1 million TMS treatments have been performed on over 25,000 patients.

Long-lasting Relief of Symptoms

In an open-label study, 68% of the participants who were followed for a year maintained the benefits of TMS sessions.
