Get Depression Relief Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Oklahoma City, OK
Depression is a treatable illness, but standard treatments such as anti-depressant medication and lifestyle changes don’t work for everyone. If you’ve tried these treatments without success, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be an option.
In partnership with Rivus Wellness & Research Institute, Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers offers TMS therapy at a convenient location in Oklahoma City. TMS has a proven record of success, with more than 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 69,000 people. This treatment could help you break free from depression.
What Is TMS?
TMS therapy is a non-invasive depression treatment that is also drug-free. It works by stimulating the prefrontal cortex of your brain, which is less active when you have depression. Stimulating this part of the brain makes it more active, lifting depression and improving your mood.
When you have TMS therapy at HPR Treatment Centers in Oklahoma City, you sit comfortably in a chair, and a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. When they switch the device on, the coil emits magnetic pulses. These penetrate your prefrontal cortex to help it work more effectively.
TMS is a highly successful depression treatment, as our patient testimonials show.

Covered by Most Insurance

How Is TMS Different from Other Depression Treatments?
TMS therapy is different from other treatments in three significant ways:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free
TMS therapy is drug free, so it’s a good option for people who:
- Don’t benefit fully from depression medication
- Can’t tolerate anti-depressant side effects
- Don’t want to treat their depression with drugs
Anti-depressants simply aren’t the best choice for everyone.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive
There are other effective depression treatments, including deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. However, these involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and also require anesthesia.
TMS is different because it’s non-invasive. It’s an effective treatment that’s much more comfortable to have than these procedures.
3. TMS Treatment Is Almost Side-Effect Free
Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects. For those patients, the most common side effect is short-lived discomfort at or near the treatment site, during treatment. This usually subsides 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!
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 notice positive changes in their mood within two to three weeks of starting TMS therapy. For some, it happens even sooner!
Some people have booster treatments to maintain the effects of TMS. When booster treatments are needed, it usually takes a few consecutive sessions per year.
