Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, a Breakthrough Treatment for Migraine Relief?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy has been widely used in treating the symptoms of depression. Recent studies, such as those done at the American Academy of Neurology 1and the University of Duisburg-Essen2 in Germany, are now showing the extensive potential TMS therapy has in the treatment of migraines. What’s more, studies are indicating the potential TMS therapy has in opening doors for safer and more effective treatment of many other brain-related illnesses including tinnitus, auditory hallucinations, anxiety disorders, and schizophrenia.
I’m Depressed; How Long Until I Feel Better with TMS?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is still a fairly new tool in the shed of tools we have to fight depression. And as with any new treatment, patients still have questions and concerns that are going unanswered – Will it hurt? Will it give me nasty side effects? Will it work for me? If you or a loved one is currently suffering from depression and are considering TMS Therapy, I recommend you visit our TMS FAQ section or contact us for a free consultation.

Is Depression Inherited?
Depression is a complex disease with treatment options that help one group of patients but are ineffective for another. There are many reasons why your depression may not have the same clinical factors as someone else’s, and one of the most discussed factors is genetics. There are numerous cases where a patient suffering from depression has had a parent and/or close relative who had also suffered from the disease and for many years this was considered an unfortunate coincidence.
TMS NeuroHealth Centers: First Non-Drug Treatment for Depression Center in Tyson’s Corner
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.
