TMS Treatment Provides Relief from Depression — and Mental Wellness — Often without Meds
Los Angeles, CA., JANUARY 10, 2018 – Achieve TMS, the nation’s largest and most experienced provider of deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) for the treatment of depression, is opening two state-of-the-art centers in Simi Valley and Calabasas this month with a third center scheduled to open in March in Thousand Oaks. Achieve TMS LA is a partnership between, Dr. Mindy Werner-Crohn of Calabasas Behavioral Health and Achieve TMS. Free TMS assessments are now available.
“Depression currently ranks as a leading cause of disability. With 1 in 6 Americans suffering from depression there is a huge need for treatments that are proven to make a difference in the battle against this debilitating disease” said Dr. Mindy Werner Crohn, MD, medical director of Achieve TMS LA. “Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is approved by the FDA and well-documented as a successful effective tool in the battle against depression. Patients and their families need an effective way to move away from depression into a place where lives are productive, balanced, healthy and well integrated. TMS is a vital tool that helps facilitate healing. We have a commitment to working in partnership with local psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists to expand access to this treatment option in the greater Los Angeles area.”
*Deep TMS works by administering magnetic pulses through an H-coil on the scalp that is targeted to the mood center of the brain. The magnetic fields induce electrical currents that stimulate underactive neurons, helping to reset brain chemistry, resulting in improved sleep, concentration and overall mood. It is safe, non-invasive and highly effective for those who are treatment resistant and/or have experienced little or no relief from medication.
In more than 60 clinical studies globally, dTMS has consistently demonstrated statistically significant response and remission rates. The therapy is well tolerated by patients, causing no adverse effects. Treatment sessions are prescribed five days per week for six weeks, with each session lasting 20 minutes. There is no sedation involved, no significant side effects and no down time.
Achieve TMS LA Centers are located at 23622 Calabasas Rd. Suite 320 in Calabasas and at 2950 Sycamore Dr. Suite 203 in Simi Valley.
