Get Depression Relief Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Orland Park
Depression is a treatable illness, with standard treatments such as medication and lifestyle changes that help many people. For some, however, these standard treatments are not effective. If you’ve tried medication and other depression treatments but are still suffering, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be able to offer some relief. TMS has a proven track record of success, with 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 65,000 people. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers in Orland Park, Florida offers TMS, a depression treatment that could help you get your life back.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression treatment that is non-invasive and doesn’t involve the use of any medications. In TMS therapy, the prefrontal cortex of the brain is stimulated with magnetic energy. This helps the brain cells function more effectively to regulate your mood.
When you have TMS at HPR Treatment Centers, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. They turn the device on, and the coil emits magnetic pulses that painlessly penetrate your prefrontal cortex. This stimulates your brain cells, so they are better able to regulate your mood.
TMS therapy is a highly effective 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 important ways:
1. It’s Drug-Free.
TMS therapy is completely drug free, so it’s ideal for people who:
- Don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate medication side effects
- Don’t want to take medication for depression
Anti-depressants do help many people, but they’re not right for everyone. TMS therapy can be a good alternative to get relief from depression.
2. It’s Non-Invasive.
TMS is not the only depression-treatment option; there are others, including deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. While these can be effective, they involve unpleasant procedures or invasive surgery, and require anesthesia.
TMS is not invasive at all, and it doesn’t involve any unpleasant procedures. During the treatment, you sit comfortably in a chair and can even listen to music or watch TV.
3. TMS Treatment Is Almost Side-Effect Free
Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects. For those patients, there can be discomfort at or near the treatment area, during the treatment. This usually stops after the first week of sessions.

How Long Does It Take for TMS Therapy to Work?
Most people who have TMS start to notice positive changes to their mood within two or three weeks of starting TMS therapy—some even sooner!
The effects of TMS are long-term, but booster treatments may be needed to stay free from depression. If you need booster treatments, you’ll probably need just a couple consecutive treatments per year.
Does Insurance Cover TMS Therapy?
TMS therapy is clinically proven as an effective depression treatment, so most insurance carriers do provide coverage. Insurance usually covers booster treatments, too.

- Shrapnel or bullets
- A tattoo on the face or head that uses metallic or magnetic ink
