Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Englewood
There are standard methods that can successfully treat depression, but they don’t work for everyone. If you’ve tried treatments like medication and lifestyle changes without seeing any benefit, then transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be a good alternative. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers in Englewood, New Jersey offers TMS therapy, a treatment with a proven track record of success. More than 2,150,000 sessions have been provided to over 65,000 people, and TMS therapy could be the depression treatment that changes your life for the better.
What Is TMS?
TMS therapy is a non-invasive depression treatment that doesn’t require medication. Instead, it uses magnetic energy to stimulate the prefrontal cortex of the brain. In people with depression, the prefrontal cortex has a lower activity level than normal, and this makes it harder for the brain to regulate mood. Stimulating the prefrontal cortex with a magnetic field helps it function normally.
When you have TMS therapy at HPR Treatment Centers, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. When they switch the TMS device on, the coil emits magnetic energy, which penetrates to the prefrontal cortex of your brain to improve its activity level.
TMS therapy is a highly 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 in three important ways:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free
Because TMS therapy is a drug-free treatment, 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-depressant medication helps many people with depression, but not everyone benefits or can take them. TMS therapy can be an effective way to treat depression that is resistant to medication.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive
Other depression treatments, like electroconvulsive therapy, deep brain stimulation, and vagus nerve stimulation, can be effective, but they involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and also require anesthesia.
TMS therapy is a viable alternative because it’s non-invasive as well as drug-free. When you have TMS, you sit comfortably in a chair, and can even watch TV or listen to music while you have the treatment.
3. TMS Treatment Is Almost Side-Effect Free.
TMS does have side effects, but they’re mild and generally only temporary. Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects. Of those people, the most common side effect is a temporary feeling of discomfort at or near the treatment site. This usually goes away within the first week of treatment sessions.

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?
With TMS therapy, it typically takes just two to three weeks to see positive changes in mood. For some people, the results happen even faster!
The depression relief that TMS provides last a long time, but some people need booster treatments to stay free from depression. If you need booster treatments, it’s likely you’ll need just a few consecutive treatments per year. Insurance does cover these sessions.
