Built on the same ground as the historic Jantzen Beach Amusement Park way back in the 1920s, Jantzen Beach is a beautiful, invigorating space situated right on Hayden Island in the Columbia River, under a mile away from Vancouver, Washington. Jantzen Beach Center is currently known for being a major shopping destination near the North Portland area, but its historical roots tie back to the days when it was known for being the country’s largest amusement park. Determined to keep that legacy alive, Jantzen Beach is a great place to relax, or spend the day.

Our new officers are dedicated to servicing the people of North Portland, Kenton, Portsmouth, nearby Vancouver, and other areas near and around Jantzen Beach. This location is perfect to help serve both the Washington and Oregon communities with their TMS needs.
While its cultural heritage describes a place of fun and wonderment, Jantzen Beach’s days as an amusement park are long gone – and it’s not alone. Millions of Americans struggle with symptoms of depression that seem insurmountable and overwhelm. They fear that their days of fun and happiness are seeing an end, too. But life is ultimately like a roller coaster – and even if you’re on a downward curve, there’s hope out there.
That’s why we’ve opened Achieve TMS Jantzen Beach. Located in Jantzen Beach Center, Portland, close to the Columbia River, near Vancouver, WA, and in a piece of town previously dedicated to making life a little happier, TMS therapy in Vancouver & Jantzen Beach can help patients struggling with depression turn their life around and diminish their symptoms. TMS therapy is FDA-approved, thoroughly studied, and a proven effective form of depression treatment that we are thrilled to be able to provide to the Washington and Oregon communities. TMS, as the name implies, involves stimulating the portion of the brain responsible for mood regulation.
TMS is a noninvasive procedure that involves stimulating the brain’s neural activity through gentle magnetic fields, transmitted into the left prefrontal cortex of the brain through a treatment coil. A pre-requisite mapping process helps determine where to place the coil, and then, repetitive magnetic fields are directed to this site. The stimulation depolarizes neurons and stimulates the release of neurotransmitters. The treatment course of TMS therapy in Vancouver & Jantzen Beach is normally 5 days per week for 4-6 weeks.
MDD, or major depressive disorder, can have a variety of causes, such as biological, genetic , chemical and/or hormonal. Many experience MDD as a fact of life.
But it need not be that way. We at Achieve TMS specialize in a treatment involving the use of magnetic fields to stimulate electrical activity and blood flow in the left prefrontal cortex and thereby improve symptoms of depression. Transcranial magnetic stimulation does not involve surgery, electrodes, sedation, or the use of medication.
Instead, the procedure for TMS therapy in Vancouver & Jantzen Beach is simple and straightforward. You sit in a comfortable chair, with an H- coil resting comfortably on your head. After a prerequisite mapping process to best determine where to apply the treatment, the next step is simply to start stimulating the brain at the correct location. Some describe it as a tapping sensation, and others describe feeling emotional during treatment – but the effect is a long-term change in neural activity in this part of the brain and in patient’s perception and reporting of depressive symptoms.
TMS has no adverse side effects. It is safe to drive and return to work or school between treatment sessions. Each session takes about 20-30 minutes, making it convenient for patients from Vancouver or Jantzen Beach to quickly get the treatment they need. If symptoms begin to return some time after the first round of treatment has been completed, patients may seek insurance approval for booster treatments to further combat the disorder.
Achieve TMS is the most trusted provider of deep TMS therapy in Vancouver / Jantzen Beach and the rest of America for the treatment for depression. Stop the despair. Take the next step. Regain joy.
