Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Henderson
Depression is treatable, but the most common depression treatments don’t work for everyone. If you live in or near Henderson, Nevada, you suffer from depression, and you’re ready to get your life back, you may be a candidate for transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers (HPRTC) has an office conveniently located in Henderson, NV. We’ve administered 2,150,000 treatments to more than 65,000 people, and our TMS experts are ready to help you get relief from your depression symptoms.
What Is TMS?
TMS therapy is a drug-free treatment for people with depression. It’s also non-invasive.
When you have a TMS therapy session, an HPRTC technician puts an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. Once the coil is in place, the TMS device is turned on, and the coil delivers painless magnetic pulses to your brain. These pulses stimulate the prefrontal cortex of your brain, which encourages the brain cells affected by depression to function more effectively.
The testimonials of our patients and our own experience with TMS therapy at HPRTC prove how effective treatment is.

How Is TMS Different from Other Depression Treatments?
TMS therapy differs from other depression treatments in three important ways:
1. No Drugs
The main difference between TMS therapy and other types of depression treatment is that TMS is completely drug-free. No medications are involved at all. This is an advantage because while many people do respond well to medication, others find it doesn’t help their depression. Some patients can’t tolerate—or don’t want—the side effects of anti-depressants, or they have other health concerns that don’t allow them to take medication.
The fact that TMS therapy is non-invasive sets it apart from many other drug-free depression treatments. Procedures like deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy treat depression, but they are invasive or otherwise unpleasant treatments, and they require anesthesia. TMS is simple, effective, and completely non-invasive.
3. Virtually Side-Effect Free
TMS side effects are rare. Fewer than 5% of people who have the treatment discontinue it because of them.
The most common side effect is temporary discomfort at or near the treatment site while treatment is happening. This usually goes away 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!

How Long Does TMS Therapy Take to Work?
Most people who have TMS therapy feel their mood begin to improve after two to three weeks of treatment. Some feel changes even sooner.
Although the effects of TMS last a long time, some patients occasionally need booster treatments to stay free from depression. Everyone’s schedule of booster treatments is different, but they’re generally only needed annually. Your maintenance schedule will depend on your own needs and situation. Your psychiatrist will schedule them for you, if necessary.
Most insurance providers cover booster treatments.

A typical course of treatment lasts four to six weeks. You’ll receive a schedule with a full course of treatment already planned, so it’s easy to arrange your calendar during the treatment period.
