Get Depression Relief Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Highland Park
Depression is a treatable illness, but many common depression treatments aren’t effective for everyone. If standard treatments just don’t work for you, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) might be the solution. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers (HPRTC) is located conveniently in Highland Park, Illinois. Here we offer TMS therapy, a depression treatment that has provided more than 2,150,000 treatment sessions to over 65,000 people.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression treatment that’s non-invasive and doesn’t require medication. During sessions, magnetic pulses stimulate the prefrontal cortex. This part of the brain is responsible for regulating emotions, and magnetic stimulation aids these cells in controlling your emotions.
When you have a TMS session at HPRTC in Highland Park, our technician gently places an electromagnetic coil on your head. When the device is turned on, the coil sends electromagnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex, which help your brain regulate your mood.
TMS therapy is very effective at treating depression – just look at our patient testimonials!

TMS Therapy: Are You Covered?
TMS Is Different from Other Depression Treatments: How?
1. It’s Drug-Free.
TMS doesn’t involve the use of drugs, so it can help people who:
- Don’t fully benefit from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate medication’s side effects
- Don’t want to take taking anti-depressants
Many people benefit from taking anti-depressant medications, but not everyone does. If you’ve tried depression medication without seeing any benefit, or want to avoid medication, TMS therapy may offer a solution.
2. It’s Non-Invasive.
Other depression treatments, such as deep brain stimulation, electroconvulsive therapy, and vagus nerve stimulation, are drug-free, but they require invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and anesthesia too.
TMS therapy is non-invasive, and you won’t need anesthesia.
3. It’s Almost Side-Effect Free.
TMS therapy can cause minor, short-lived side effects, like discomfort at or near the treatment site, that usually subside after the first week of treatment. Fewer than 5% of people who have TMS therapy stop the treatment due to side effects.

TMS has long-term benefits, but some people do need booster treatments to stay depression-free. If you need booster treatments, you’ll likely need only one per year. Most people find their insurance covers the booster treatments as well as the initial course of TMS therapy.
