TMS, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Therapy is a new and innovative therapy that has begun to unravel throughout the psychology world. Magnetic stimulation is a procedure that requires electromagnets to be set in place in the area of the brain that stabilizes mood sensitivity. Magnetic pulses are delivered to stimulate the nerves. The procedure takes about 30-60 minutes every day. It’s been approved by the FDA and produces no serious side effects other than a headache and slight discomfort from the electro pulses. Most individuals don’t have these side effects after the first time or two. TMS Therapy treatment generally lasts about four to eight weeks depending on the patient’s response to the electromagnets. Individuals who have TMS Therapy can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure. TMS Therapy is not to be confused with electroconvulsive therapy, known as “shock therapy”, this type of therapy is mainly used in seizure patients to relax the muscles. Its side effects are confusion and memory loss and do require a longer recovery time with primary care physicians. TMS Therapy is a safer procedure and doesn’t require a recovery time. Patients are able to resume normal daily activities.
TMS Therapy differs from taking antidepressants. It’s a procedure that pertains mainly to the scalp, therefore, no medication is needed for the procedure. Another upside to TMS Therapy is the fact that it doesn’t enter the bloodstream like taking medications will do. This procedure is done simply to the effect of an MRI and will not work with magnets in the household, please don’t try this at home. It’s a procedure that needs to be completed by medical professionals. Not everyone will benefit from TMS Therapy, it’s always important to consult the primary physician before starting the procedure.
