Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Boynton Beach
Depression is a serious illness, but treatments such as medication and lifestyle changes help many people. However, those treatments don’t work for everyone. If you’ve tried these treatments and are still suffering with depression, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may help. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers (HPRTC) is offering TMS in a convenient Boynton Beach location. TMS therapy has a proven track record of success, with 2,150,000 treatments given to over 65,000 people. TMS therapy can help you find the joy in life again.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a drug-free depression treatment that is completely non-invasive. In TMS therapy, the prefrontal cortex of the brain is stimulated with a magnetic field. The prefrontal cortex is where mood is regulated, and the magnetic stimulation helps this part of the brain work more effectively.
When you have TMS therapy at HPRTC, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. When the device is turned on, the coil sends magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex to help you regulate your own moods more effectively.
TMS therapy is a highly effective depression treatment, as our patient testimonials show.

What Is TMS Different from Other Depression Treatments?
TMS therapy is different from other treatments in three important ways:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free.
Because TMS therapy is completely drug free, it’s a good option for people who:
- Don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate the side effects of medication
- Don’t want to take anti-depressant drugs
Anti-depressants do help many people, but not everyone can or wants to take them. TMS therapy can be a good alternative to get relief from depression.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive.
There are other drug-free depression treatments. These include electroconvulsive therapy, vagus nerve stimulation, and deep brain stimulation. But these involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and anesthesia. TMS doesn’t require any unpleasant procedures and is completely non-invasive.
3. TMS Is Nearly Side-Effect Free.
Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects. The most common side effects involve temporary discomfort at or near the treatment site, during the treatment. For most people, this subsides after the first week of treatment.

How Long Does It Take for TMS Therapy to Work?
Most people who have TMS notice positive mood changes after just two to three weeks of starting treatment – some even sooner!
The effects of TMS last a long time, but some people need booster treatments to stay free from depression. If you need booster treatments, it’ll most likely be just one treatment a year. For most people, insurance covers the cost of booster treatments.

What Else Should You Know about TMS Therapy in Boynton Beach?
What to Expect During Your First Appointment
At your first appointment at HPRTC, you’ll complete some paperwork, and then have an interview with our psychiatrist. The paperwork takes around 15 minutes, and the interview takes up to 45 minutes. The psychiatrist will review your medical and mental health history, and then discuss the treatment with you. You’ll have the chance to ask any questions you have about TMS therapy. We want you to have all the information you need to make a confident decision!
How Long Is the Treatment Schedule?
When you become an HPRTC patient, you’ll receive a written schedule of all your appointments, so you can make any accommodations that are necessary for treatment.
The full course of treatment is typically four to six weeks, with up to five sessions a week.
Who Is Eligible for TMS?
Most people with depression can benefit from TMS therapy, and most people are eligible. The main thing that disqualifies people is the presence of non-removable metal in the head. This is a problem because the metal reacts unfavorably with magnetic energy. Non-removable metal can include:
- A medical device, such as a vagus or deep brain stimulator, or a cochlear implant
- Shrapnel or bullets
- A facial tattoo that uses metallic or magnetic ink
- Some dental work (Most is okay.)
How Long Is a TMS Treatment?
Each treatment session at HPRTC takes 18 to 20 minutes.
