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. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers (HPRTC) 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 65,000 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 HPRTC 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.

TMS Therapy: Are You Covered?
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 not only drug-free, it’s also 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.

What Else Should You Know about TMS Therapy in Oklahoma City?
What to Expect During Your First Appointment?
Your first appointment has two parts. The first part involves completing some paperwork and takes around 15 minutes. The second part is an interview with the HPRTC psychiatrist, which takes up to 45 minutes. During your chat with our psychiatrist, they review your medical and mental health history and address your questions, so you can make a confident decision!
How Long Is the Treatment Schedule?
When you become an HPRTC patient, we’ll give you a written calendar of all your appointments, so you can make any accommodations you need for treatment.

Who Is Eligible for TMS?
Most people with depression can benefit from TMS therapy. Some people are ineligible for treatment for reasons that aren’t directly related to the treatment. The main issue that disqualifies someone is the presence of metal in the head that can’t be removed. This can include:
- A medical device, such as a cochlear implant, vagus nerve, or deep brain stimulator
- Bullets or shrapnel
- A tattoo on the face or head that uses metallic or magnetic ink
- Some dental work (Most is acceptable.)
How Long Is a TMS Treatment?
Each treatment session at HPRTC lasts 20 minutes.
