TMS Therapy in Orlando

Luxury Psychiatry Medical Spa, located about 30 minutes west of Orlando in Winter Garden, FL, provides transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for those needing treatment for major depressive disorder and anxiety that aren’t responding well to medicinal treatment.

TMS is an FDA-approved, non-invasive therapy that utilizes repetitive, short magnetic bursts that target specific areas in the brain. Many people respond to TMS therapy after scheduling and receiving several treatments. Furthermore, TMS is covered by most insurance companies.

How We Use TMS Therapy

Specific Nerve Targeting

Transcranial magnetic stimulation works by targeting specific nerve cells in the brain that regulate mood and other depressive symptoms. After physicians map out your brain to target specific neurons, treatment consists of placing a paddle with two loops near your forehead over your scalp. A current travels through the loops which generate an electromagnetic field perpendicular to the paddle. This electromagnetic field is strongest where the two loops (coils) meet.

Brain Pattern Alteration

The coils administer electrical impulses to your brain through your scalp and skull. These impulses cause certain neurons in your brain to fire in a way that alters brain patterns associated with depression and anxiety. By stimulating the neurons through electrical impulses, TMS therapy works through several sessions over several weeks to treat depression and certain anxiety disorders.

Conditions We Treat with TMS Therapy

TMS therapy treats treatment-resistant depression and associated mental health issues, like obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). TMS may also help those with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Treatment-Resistant Depression

Treatment-resistant depression is a very complex, pervasive, serious type of depression that doesn't respond well to or at all to conventional treatment and medications. There are certain parts of the brain responsible for depression and other mood disorders. TMS therapy targets those neurons in the brain's prefrontal cortex. 

The brain consists of 90 billion neurons and 100 billion nerves that sometimes slow and misfire, creating pathways to nowhere. TMS therapy stimulates your brain's neurons to create new pathways to the trillions of nerve synapses that help regulate mood and emotion, easing symptoms of depression. 

The FDA approved TMS therapy in 2008 to treat treatment-resistant depression. There are currently two types of TMS therapy: repetitive TMS (rTMS) and deep TMS (dTMS). 


The FDA approved TMS therapy in 2012 to treat OCD. Other anxiety disorders are still undergoing clinical trials and research and are yet to be FDA-approved. However, discuss your anxiety symptoms and medications during your initial assessment with your intake coordinator to further understand if your anxiety symptoms can be relieved by TMS therapy.

Benefits of TMS Therapy

The Future of TMS Therapy

The future of transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy is promising as new clinical trials and research are ongoing around the world. The FDA recently approved a more targeted form of TMS therapy called the Stanford Accelerated Intelligent Neuromodulation Therapy (SAINT). SAINT TMS utilizes functional brain imaging to further specialize therapy and will be available for clinical use this year.
