Nestled in the rolling hills northeast of downtown San Diego lies upscale Rancho Bernardo. From the summer ARTWALK at the Bernardo Winery to the annual Rancho Bernardo Alive Street Fair this is a community filled with activity, entertainment, and joy — away from the San Diego bustle.
But these activities aren’t joyful for those who suffer from depression. Especially for those who have struggled unsuccessfully with other depression treatments. But now there is new hope.
The Achieve TMS Rancho Bernardo center offers deep transcranial magnetic stimulation, or dTMS, for the treatment of depression. Non-invasive TMS can be highly effective — even for those who haven’t had much success with other treatment for depression.
At the Rancho Bernardo center, magnetic impulses are directed to the limbic system or mood center of the brain with no adverse side effects. The treatment is simple: you come in for treatment 20 minutes per day and then return to normal daily activity. No anesthesia. No electrical shocks. Just simple magnetic pulses.
