It is now official! Our first Greenbrook TMS NeuroHealth Centers location is open for business. The first of a national network of centers offering Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy, Tyson’s Corner (McLean, Virginia) opened its doors in November, 2011.
TMS Therapy is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive medical treatment for patients with depression without any of the side effects typically experienced with antidepressant medication, such as weight gain, sexual problems or fatigue. It uses highly focused magnetic pulses to gently stimulate the area of the brain that controls mood. This specific area has been identified as under active in people who suffer from depression. Stimulation leads to the release of chemical neurotransmitters, relieving the symptoms of depression.
