Even among the jewels of the Golden State, Temecula is something special. Established nearly 30 years ago, Temecula is a quaint and beautiful city in the southwestern portion of Riverside County, 60 miles north of San Diego. Although recently incorporated, Temecula has a rich Native American history, and is a hotspot for tourism owing to its wineries and vineyards, and the annual Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival. It also hosts an international film and music festival once a year and attracts tourists with a collection of buildings dating back to the late 19th century, from boutiques and hotels, to antique stores.
Rather than being just another stop on the way between San Diego and Los Angeles, Temecula is a special city with a rich local culture and history. Unfortunately, depression is an issue here in Temecula just as it is throughout the rest of the country, and people are starting to realize just how devastating this condition can be. The Achieve TMS center in Temecula has been established to help brighten the lives of area residents who are struggling with depression and bring them a renewed sense of hope.
Over 16 million Americans struggle with depression. While the stigma against this debilitating disease has slowly subsided in recent years, many Americans are still not aware of all of the viable treatment options available to them.
Sometimes, anti-depressants don’t work, but that does not mean all hope is lost. Here at Achieve TMS, we specialize in one highly effective alternative: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.
Our TMS Therapy in Temecula is a completely noninvasive, localized procedure, approved by the FDA, thoroughly studied and with delivering no lasting adverse side effects. The treatment sessions themselves are pain-free; they involve a coil that delivers magnetic fields into a patient’s brain, improving blood flow as well as electrical and neural activity and altering mood. Successful TMS therapy allows patients with major depressive disorder to experience joy again. Roughly 75% of patients report an improvement in symptoms and 50% report no depressive symptoms when treatment is completed. Treatment involves sessions 5 days per week, normally over a 4-6-week period.
Along with anxiety, depression is one of the most common disabilities in the developed world. Rather than a temporary state of sadness or grief, depression involves prolonged sorrow and a significant negative outlook. Many people struggling with major depressive disorder experience dysphoria, or an inability to feel joy over a lengthy period of time. There are various factors that influence the development of depression, many of them biological, and all of them rooted in the brain.
A TMS session does not involve scalpels, electrodes, or medication. All the patient needs to do is lie back in a very comfortable chair and remain still while watching a relaxing video, listening to music or meditating. A certified TMS technician will provide treatment involving an H-coil situated in a cushioned helmet that has been mapped for proper placement and placed on the scalp adjacent to the area of the brain that requires treatment. Magnetic waves are delivered into the cerebral cortex for about 20 minutes each day and patients experience a tapping sensation at treatment site. Once daily treatment is completed, patients may safely drive themselves home, or to their school or work responsibilities and resume daily routines.
BrainsWay’s Deep TMS
BrainsWay’s Deep TMS treatment is an innovative and effective treatment option for depression. BrainsWay’s depression treatment uses Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) to safely and effectively target areas of the brain associated with MDD during 20 min treatment sessions. During each session you are comfortably seated on a chair and a cushioned helmet is placed over your head. The helmet uses magnetic fields to stimulate the targeted area.
Unlike other depression treatments available, Deep TMS is effective, even in treatment resistant depression. The safety and efficacy of depression therapy with BrainsWay’s device have been demonstrated extensively in clinical trials.
With short 20 minutes sessions, and no systemic side effects, you can fit Deep TMS into your schedule and live life to the fullest again.
