Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Columbus Circle, New York
Depression is a serious, but treatable illness. Some people benefit from treatments such as medication and lifestyle changes, but they don’t work for everyone. If you’ve tried standard depression treatments but haven’t seen improvement, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may help. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers in Columbus Circle, New York offers TMS therapy to people with depression. More than 2,150,000 sessions have been provided to over 65,000 clients, demonstrating a proven track record of helping people find relief from depression.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression therapy that doesn’t involve medication or invasive treatments. It works by stimulating your brain’s prefrontal cortex, which is the region where mood is regulated.
During a TMS therapy session, an HPR Treatment Centers technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. Once they turn the device on, the coil directs magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex. This helps those brain cells regulate your moods more effectively to improve your depression symptoms

Covered by Most Insurance
TMS is covered by Medicare, TRICARE, and most private insurers for the treatment of major depressive disorder.
How Is TMS Different from Other Depression Treatments?
TMS therapy is different from other treatments in three important ways:
1. It’s Drug-Free.
One of the most common depression treatments is medication, but drugs don’t work for everyone. Some people don’t fully benefit from medication, while others experience intolerable side effects. Some people simply prefer not to take anti-depressant drugs.
TMS could be a viable alternative without the side effects.
2. It’s Non-Invasive.
Other depression treatments include vagus nerve stimulation, deep brain stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. But these treatments involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and require anesthesia.
TMS is an effective depression treatment that is non-invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia.
3. It’s Virtually Side-Effect Free.
Less than 5% of TMS patients stop having treatment due to side effects. The most common side effect people experience is discomfort at or near the treatment site while receiving treatment. For most people, this discomfort stops after the first week of treatment.

If I could go back and talk to my depressed self, I think that all I’d really say is don’t wait. Don’t waste those months. Just do it. Make that change.
After the treatments were over, I realized that there was an accumulating sense of well-being, and that was something I had never experienced before. I was happy! I felt well!
I was in and out in 45 minutes and drove myself to and from. I had no side effects, wasn’t sleepy, and didn’t have an upset stomach. I actually had energy after a few treatments.
How Long Before You Notice the Effects of TMS Therapy?
Most people having TMS therapy notice positive changes in mood within two or three weeks of their first treatment. Some people start seeing results even earlier than this!
The benefits of TMS therapy last a long time, but some people need booster treatments occasionally. If you need booster sessions, you’ll only need a few consecutive sessions per year. In most cases, they’re covered by insurance.
