Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Hinsdale
Depression is a serious illness, but it’s treatable. Standard depression treatments, such as medication and lifestyle changes, don’t work for everyone. If you’ve tried these treatments without experiencing any relief, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be able to help. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers in Hinsdale, Illinois offers TMS therapy in a comfortable, relaxed environment. With 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 65,000 people, TMS is a proven treatment for people with depression.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression treatment that is non-invasive and drug-free. It works by exposing the prefrontal cortex of the brain to electromagnetic energy.
When you have TMS therapy at HPR Treatment Centers, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. Once they turn the device on, the coil sends magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex.
The prefrontal cortex is the part of the brain where mood is regulated. In someone with depression, the prefrontal cortex isn’t as active, so it doesn’t regulate mood well. The electromagnetic energy from TMS therapy stimulates the prefrontal cortex and helps it work to 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 ways:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free
Because TMS therapy is completely drug free, it’s a good option for people who:
- Don’t see the desired results from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate the side effects of medication
- Don’t want to take anti-depressant drugs
Anti-depressants help many people, but not everyone can or wants to take drugs for depression. TMS therapy can be a good alternative.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive
There are some other options for depression treatment. These include deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. However, many people are hesitant to try these treatments because they involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and anesthesia.
TMS therapy is a simple treatment that is easily tolerated because it’s non-invasive and drug-free.
3. TMS Treatment Is Nearly Side-Effect Free
Fewer than 5% of people who have TMS therapy stop treatment because of side effects. The most common side effect is discomfort felt at the treatment site, while the treatment is taking place. For most people who experience this, the discomfort subsides after the first week of treatment sessions.

Just because you’ve suffered from anxiety and depression all of your life doesn’t mean you have to live with it forever. See how TMS is changing lives every day.
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 who have TMS notice an improvement in their mood after only two or three weeks of starting treatment. For some people, this happens even sooner!
The effects of TMS are long-term, but some people need booster treatments to maintain the effects. For most people who need booster sessions, a few consecutive treatments a year is enough.
Does Insurance Cover TMS Therapy?
TMS therapy is clinically proven to treat depression, so most insurance companies provide coverage. Insurance covers the cost of booster treatments in most cases, too. If you’re not sure about your insurance coverage, call HPR Treatment Centers at (877) 959-2430 for a free insurance verification. It takes just a few minutes for us to confirm your insurance pre-approval.

- A medical device, such as a cochlear implant, or vagus or deep brain stimulator
