Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in North Miami
Depression is a serious illness, but it’s also a treatable one. For many people, however, standard treatments such as medication and lifestyle changes just aren’t enough. If you’ve tried these treatments without seeing any improvement, a treatment called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) might offer some relief. You can find it at Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers, conveniently located in North Miami, Florida. TMS therapy has provided over 2,150,000 sessions to more than 65,000 people and can help you reclaim a life of joy.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a non-invasive depression treatment that is entirely drug-free. In TMS therapy, the prefrontal cortex of the brain is stimulated with a magnetic field. The prefrontal cortex is where emotions are regulated, and the magnetic stimulation helps these cells work more effectively.
When you have TMS therapy at HPR Treatment Centers, a technician will place an electromagnetic coil gently on your head and turn the device on. The coil sends electromagnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex to help your brain regulate mood more effectively.
TMS therapy is a very effective depression treatment, as our patient testimonials show.

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 for three important reasons.
1. TMS Is Drug-Free
TMS is a drug-free treatment, so it can help people who:
- Don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate the side effects of medication
- Want to avoid taking anti-depressant drugs
Anti-depressant drugs help many people, but not everyone benefits from them. If you’ve tried anti-depressants without success, or prefer to avoid taking medication, TMS therapy may be a good alternative.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive.
There are other depression treatments, such as vagus nerve stimulation, deep brain stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. However, these involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures and require anesthesia. TMS therapy is an effective treatment that’s non-invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia.
3. TMS Treatment Is Almost Side-Effect Free.
Less than 5% of people who have TMS therapy discontinue the therapy due to side effects. For those people, there can be short-lived discomfort at or near the treatment site, during the treatment. This doesn’t usually last past 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 Does It Take TMS Therapy to Work?
Most people start to feel positive effects of TMS therapy within two or three weeks of starting treatment. Some people feel the benefits even sooner!
TMS therapy provides long-term effects, but booster treatments are sometimes needed to stay free from depression. If your depression requires booster treatments, you’ll likely need a few consecutive sessions per year. For most people, insurance covers the costs of booster treatments.

Are You Eligible for TMS?
Most people with depression can benefit from TMS, but some people may be ineligible for treatment for reasons that don’t relate to the treatment itself. If you have any kind of non-removable metal in your head, you’ll generally be ineligible because the metal reacts unfavorably with magnetic energy. If you have any of the following, you may be ineligible for TMS:
- A medical device, such as a cochlear implant, deep brain stimulator, or vagus nerve stimulator
- Shrapnel or bullets
- A facial tattoo with metallic or magnetic ink
- Some dental work (Most is acceptable.)
How Long Is TMS Treatment?
A single session of TMS therapy at HPR Treatment Centers in Miami takes 18 to 19 minutes. A typical course of treatment is four to six weeks, with up to five sessions a week.
