TMS Therapy in Las Vegas
What is TMS?
TMS is a drug-free, non-invasive, and personalized depression therapy
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation has revolutionized the treatment of mental health and addiction, with FDA-clearances to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and smoking addiction. TMS treatment is effective, safe, and generally well-tolerated for people with these common brain disorders. The treatment has been demonstrated to be effective for those who have not improved sufficiently from medication or psychotherapy. TMS is a neurostimulation technology that uses a magnetic coil to activate neural networks in target areas of the brain implicated in mental health and addiction disorders. Treatment involves sitting comfortably in a chair in our office and wearing a helmet for approximately 20 minutes. TMS treatment does not cause systemic side effects and does not require hospitalization or anesthesia.
The Benefits of TMS
How Does TMS Work?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS, is like giving your brain a gentle wake-up call. We use a special device to send small magnetic pulses to certain parts of your brain, kind of like tapping it on the shoulder. This tapping helps to activate or calm down specific areas, sort of like adjusting the volume on a radio. Over time, these little taps can make a big difference, especially for things like mood or anxiety. It's a personalized approach to enhancing brain function and promoting mental well-being over the course of treatment.

What To Expect
Your First Session
During your session you'll be comfortably seated, and a small electromagnetic coil will be carefully positioned near your scalp . You may feel a tapping or clicking sensation on your head as the magnetic pulses are delivered. While there's no need for anesthesia, and the procedure is non-invasive, you might experience mild discomfort or a tingling sensation during the treatment. Sessions typically last around 30 to 60 minutes, and the frequency and duration will be part of your personalized treatment plan. Many individuals continue with their daily activities immediately afterward.
Ongoing Treatment Sessions
Sessions are generally conducted on a regular schedule, as outlined in your personalized treatment plan. Consistency is key, and the duration of your TMS sessions will align with your therapeutic goals. Throughout the ongoing process, open communication with your healthcare team remains crucial. Any changes in your experience or concerns should be shared to ensure that the treatment parameters are continuously optimized to best meet your needs.
