Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Lone Tree
Depression is a common mental illness that affects millions of people every year. Standard treatments such as medication and lifestyle changes can help, but they don’t work for everyone. If you’ve tried the standard treatments but haven’t found any relief, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be able to help you. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers offers TMS therapy in a convenient Lone Tree location. With 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 65,000 people to date, TMS is proven to be successful for treating depression.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression treatment that is both drug-free and non-invasive. In TMS therapy, the prefrontal cortex of the brain is exposed to electromagnetic energy. This is the part of the brain where mood is regulated. In people with depression, the ability for the prefrontal cortex to regulate mood is suppressed. The electromagnetic energy we use in TMS therapy provides the stimulation the prefrontal cortex needs to work more effectively.
When you have TMS therapy at HPR Treatment Centers, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. They turn the device on to send magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex for the duration of the treatment.

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 reasons:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free
TMS therapy is completely drug free. This means it’s a good option for people who:
- Don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate medication side effects
- Don’t want to take anti-depressants
Anti-depressants help many people, but they’re not suitable for everyone. TMS therapy is an effective, drug-free alternative to treat depression.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive
There are some other options for people who want to try depression treatment, like electroconvulsive therapy and brain stimulators. But they involve anesthesia or invasive surgery or procedures. TMS doesn’t involve any invasive or unpleasant procedures.
3. TMS Treatment Is Almost Side-Effect Free.
Fewer than 5% of patients stop their TMS therapy due to side effects. Most people who have side effects only experience temporary discomfort at the treatment site, during the treatment. For people who have this side effect, it usually subsides after the first week of treatment.

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 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 positive effects of TMS can last a long time, but some people need booster treatments to stay depression-free. If you need booster treatments, it’ll most likely be a few consecutive sessions per year.
Does Insurance Cover TMS Therapy?
TMS therapy has proven success in treating 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 720-534-3048 for a free insurance verification. It takes just a few minutes to confirm your insurance pre-approval!
