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).
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.

Major depressive disorder, also known as clinical depression, affects over 7 percent of adults in the United States. Many take medication to ease or alleviate their symptoms. However, medication doesn’t work for everyone.
