TMS is a therapy that is both safe and non-invasive, without the need for drugs. It works by using magnetic waves to stimulate specific areas of the brain that are responsible for emotions and mood.
Through electromagnetic pulsing, TMS effectively communicates with the brain in its own electrical ‘language’, gradually guiding it back to a more normal level of activity. This therapy strengthens and reinforces the brain circuits associated with positive mood and mental well-being.

This is where TMS stands out as a form of treatment. By stimulating a specific pathway in the brain, a single instance of positivity, a positive emotion, or a positive thought can have a beneficial effect. However, it is important to note that this process takes time. During a TMS treatment session, which can last anywhere from three to nineteen minutes, the targeted pathway in the brain is repeatedly stimulated with thousands of pulses. This repetitive stimulation helps to amplify the response and retrain the brain to experience reduced levels of depression and anxiety.
A typical TMS program consists of roughly 36 sessions. Throughout the treatment, your brain is stimulated with approximately 100,000 pulses or ‘exercises’. Consider the scenario of practicing a golf swing, a tennis serve, or a piano melody 100,000 times… you would become quite skilled at it. Repeated practice leads to perfection. TMS facilitates this repetitive practice without any effort required from the patient. As your brain continues to engage in these positive pathways, it becomes increasingly proficient in generating positive thoughts and emotions.

The response rate of TMS is significantly higher than 50%, specifically for patients who have treatment-resistant depression. Numerous TMS clinics consistently report a response rate of 60-70% or even higher. Almost half of all patients seeking treatment experience complete remission of depressive symptoms. This presents a much greater likelihood of success compared to trying your third or fourth medication. Furthermore, TMS treatment does not carry the risk of systemic side effects. In terms of long-term response rates and the probability of ongoing relief from depression, TMS outperforms medications even after one year of treatment.
TMS has been researched and utilized in the treatment of various mental health disorders, including Anxiety, PTSD, OCD, Bipolar Depression, and Postpartum Depression. There is undoubtedly a promising future ahead in the field of mental health care. Clarity TMS Chicago is thrilled to be involved in this upcoming era and encourages you to contemplate TMS therapy if you are experiencing persistent mental health symptoms that are unresponsive to treatment.
