The nature of depression may look different for each person, but TMS treatment gives hope to long lasting relief from symptoms. 


What to Expect

Each patient suffering from severe and debilitating depression will have the opportunity to have a consultation with our therapy team at Gemini TMS. Our team of professionals will evaluate your symptoms and mental health history to determine if you will be a successful candidate for TMS therapy. Working with your therapist, an individualized treatment plan will be created that best suits your mental health needs.

Our professionals will identify the regions of your brain that will be treated with magnetic stimulation. Mapping out these specific sites provides patients with the most effective treatment. The brain’s nerve cells that dictate and alter mood will be treated with stimulation, encouraging the neurons to become active.

How It Works

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (or TMS) is a non-invasive form of brain stimulation. TMS treatment targets magnetic pulses to specific areas of the brain that are directly associated with controlling mood and depression. 

The nerve cells in this region are stimulated, altering the brain’s neurotransmitter levels. TMS is an intensive approach which stimulates the areas of the brain that have a significant decrease of activity. This therapy requires several sessions over a period of weeks. However, many patients find their depression symptoms lifting early on in their treatment.
