What is TMS?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. Here are some bullet points to explain TMS:

  • TMS uses a coil that is placed over the scalp to deliver magnetic pulses to the brain.
  • These pulses create small electric currents that can stimulate or inhibit the activity of the brain cells, depending on the frequency and intensity of the pulses.
  • TMS is often used to treat depression, anxiety, and other psychiatric disorders by targeting specific areas of the brain that are thought to be involved in these conditions.
  • TMS can also be used to study brain function and to map out the connections between different areas of the brain.
  • TMS is considered a safe and well-tolerated treatment with minimal side effects, although some patients may experience headaches, dizziness, or other mild discomfort during or after treatment.
  • TMS sessions typically last about 30 minutes and are administered daily for several weeks.
  • TMS can be used in combination with other treatments, such as medication or psychotherapy, to improve treatment outcomes.
  • TMS is currently FDA-approved for the treatment of depression, OCD, and migraines, and is being investigated for its potential use in a variety of other conditions.

While Middle Path Counseling MO does not do TMS we work with great organizations in the Kansas City Area.
