Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy in Massachusetts

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive medical procedure used to treat certain mental health conditions, primarily depression, when other treatments have been ineffective or poorly tolerated. What you should know about TMS:

How TMS Works:

- TMS involves the use of a magnetic coil placed near the scalp to generate magnetic pulses.
- These pulses create electric currents in specific regions of the brain, primarily the dorso-lateral prefrontal cortex.
- The stimulation is thought to regulate brain activity and improve mood.


- TMS is primarily used to treat depression, particularly major depressive disorder.
- It may also be considered for other conditions such as anxiety disorders, OCD, bipolar disorder, and certain neurological conditions like migraines and tinnitus, although its efficacy for these conditions may vary.

Non-Invasive and Outpatient:

- TMS is non-invasive, meaning it doesn't require surgery or anesthesia.
- It is typically done on an outpatient basis, and you can return to your daily activities after each session.

Treatment Duration:

- TMS typically involves a series of daily sessions (Monday to Friday) over several weeks. A standard course may consist of 30-36 sessions.
- Each session lasts about 20-30 minutes

Minimal Side Effects:

- TMS is generally well-tolerated with minimal side effects.
- Common side effects may include mild scalp discomfort or headache during or after treatment.


- TMS has shown efficacy in treating depression, particularly for individuals who have not responded well to other treatments like medication or therapy.
- Response rates vary, but many people experience significant symptom improvement.


TMS is considered safe, but it may not be suitable for everyone. Your healthcare provider will assess your medical history to determine if you are a suitable candidate.

Cost and Insurance:

Almost all insurance plans cover TMS treatment for specific diagnoses.

Combination Therapies:

TMS can be used in combination with other therapies, such as medication and psychotherapy, to enhance treatment outcomes.

Research and Advancements:

Ongoing research is exploring the potential of TMS for various mental health and neurological conditions, and advancements in TMS technology continue to improve its precision and effectiveness.
