Achieve TMS provides transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy to help individuals coping with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and other mood disorders. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of clinical excellence, and we instill genuine care into all aspects of the patient experience.
At Achieve TMS, we recognize that treatment is just one component of healing, and we use cutting-edge technology that delivers the most efficacious TMS therapy on the market. Our TMS machines have been evaluated in more than 100 clinical trials worldwide, and they allow magnetic pulses to be delivered into specific regions of the brain that are underactive in patients with depression. Our TMS therapy is based on the most recent, peer-reviewed research on neuromodulation, and it is administered by expert physicians who provide each patient with a custom treatment plan.
During TMS therapy, a magnetic coil is placed on the patient’s head near the left temple, and localized pulses are sent up to 3cm below the skull. The pulses are directed toward underactive areas of the brain involved in mood regulation, and they create small currents that open up new neural pathways and may help trigger the release of norepinephrine, serotonin, and other important neurotransmitters.
TMS therapy requires approximately 20 minutes per session, with five sessions performed per week for six weeks. We provide personal access to our supervising physicians over theduration of your TMS treatment. In addition, our TMS technicians are trained and certified internally by Achieve TMS, and externally by third-party reviewers. They are also trained to foster relationships that are personalized and supportive.
We strive to make the patient experience seamless, convenient, and pleasant by providing unique features like flexible scheduling, which includes modified hours of operation to accommodate your needs. Thanks to our flexible scheduling, you can set up a TMS session at a day and time that works for you, undergo treatment, and resume your everyday activities immediately following therapy.
Along with flexible scheduling, we offer a relaxing office environment at all of our centers. Here, you can watch TV shows and movies on Netflix, sit comfortably in a plush treatment chair, and enjoy snacks and beverages.
We also offer over 23 treatment locations across California, Oregon, and Alaska. Regardless of which of our office locations you visit, you will receive compassionate care from physicians and technicians who value the whole person, not just the patient.
To date, we have delivered over 450,000 treatments to more than 11,000 patients, with a 70% response rate. We also employ accomplished physicians at each of our centers who are committed to helping patients coping with mood disorders, and we continuously seek collaborations with other TMS experts and researchers.
If you or someone you know is coping with a mood disorder, our team is happy to help.
