Innovation close to home, TMS Therapy

Published on Wednesday January 10, 2024

Did you know that Centra Psychiatric & Behavioral Health provides Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy as an innovative treatment for depression? 

This therapy provides patients who have not experienced improvement in depression symptoms from medication with an alternative treatment option. TMS helps activate the natural function of the brain's neurotransmitters using a noninvasive magnetic field similar to that of an MRI. 

Because it uses a precise magnetic pulse, it is effective exactly where it needs to be. Additionally, TMS does not require anesthesia or sedation, so patients can resume normal activities following each treatment. Treatment sessions typically last for about 20 to 30 minutes.
