Stories of Hope and Recovery from Depression with Deep TMS
You know how it goes. Savvy marketers and promoters can make just about any goods or services sound simply amazing; the best thing since sliced bread, right? What really holds credibility regarding a company’s claims of success, though, is what comes straight from the customer’s mouth. When it comes to the success of the deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (dTMS) technology provided at Achieve TMS, the patients who had struggled with major depressive disorder (MDD) couldn’t be happier with the results.
The phenomenal results at Achieve TMS have proven life changing for hundreds of patients who had tried standard treatment—medications and psychotherapy—but to no avail. In fact, up to 50% of those who are treated with antidepressants do not experience relief of their symptoms. Others simply cannot tolerate the many side effects of the drugs, including irritability, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, and sleep pattern disturbances, among others. So to discover an alternative treatment for depression that requires no medications and is noninvasive, and that actually works is something to rave about.
To hear patient testimonials of how dTMS treatment at Achieve TMS changed their lives for the better, watch the video below:
How Does dTMS Work?
Achieve TMS utilizes the cutting edge BrainSway technology at its many convenient locations. A typical treatment session involves the patient simply be seated in a comfy chair and then fitted with a helmet that they will wear for 20-30 minutes. Inside the helmet is a coil system that delivers magnetic pulses—similar to an MRI machine—directly through the scalp reaching up to 6 cm into the brain. It is designed to align with the region of the brain in the prefrontal cortex targeting the limbic system, which is the mood center of our brains.
During the session a light tapping can be felt on the scalp where the pulses are activated, and the resulting electromagnetic currents stimulate the neurotransmitters, rebalancing them and allowing for ongoing improvement in sleep, concentration, and mood. The sessions are scheduled daily, five days per week, for 4-6 weeks.
Positive results from the dTMS sessions are felt even after the first week, with patients reporting that their sleep patterns had improved. As treatment progresses each week more and more positive effects are experienced. Soon they find themselves thinking more clearly. As prior patient Byron G. notes, “Feelings are more clear, clear headed and focused. Bad feelings go away faster.”
So instead of struggling with meds that may cause discomfort at best, or just don’t work at worst, individuals who have been suffering with medication-resistant depression now have an alternative treatment option that is delivering incredible results. As former patient, Marley M. states, “I noticed a change in my outlook. I started enjoying myself more and was able to live in the moment to a greater degree. I experienced more productivity at work and have slept without sleeping aids for the first time in three years.”
