What is TMS?
TMS stands for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, a non invasive and drug free treatment that targets specific areas in the brain using magnetic fields.
TMS is a proven treatment for depression (whether alone or co morbid with other psychiatric disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, OCD) and is covered by Medicare for treatment resistant depression and can also be used to treat pain.
