“For about 20 minutes a day, five days a week, magnetic pulses targeted the part of my ‘sleeping’ brain that was making me sick. By the fourth week of treatment—a miracle!

Excited about my life and the future.”

What to Expect from TMS Treatment

Here’s what you will likely experience from a TMS treatment:

  • You remain awake during treatment, seated in a comfortable chair while a magnet gently stimulates your brain.
  • TMS treatments are painless and last just 20 minutes.
  • TMS works by stimulating neurons in a focused area of the brain that impact moods and by strengthening connections to the brain where the impact can be permanent.
  • TMS generally produces transformative results after about six weeks of treatment (20-minute sessions, five days a week).

If you haven’t found relief from other depression treatments, turn to the leading provider of TMS in the Pacific Northwest. The ABHC team is here to help.

What to Expect from TMS Treatment

TMS uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression. It’s an in-office treatment that takes 19 to 37 minutes and is performed while the patient sits in a chair. Treatment consists of sessions administered five days a week, for up to four to six weeks. There are no effects on alertness or understanding. Patients can drive themselves to and from their treatment sessions.
