What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression treatment that is drug-free and non-invasive. It works by stimulating the prefrontal cortex of your brain—where mood is regulated—with a magnetic field.
In a TMS therapy session at Ormond Beach, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head and turns the device on to deliver magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex. This helps that region of your brain regulate your mood more effectively.
As our own patient testimonials show, TMS therapy is an effective depression 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?
Three important things distinguish TMS therapy from other depression treatments:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free
Some people don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medications, or they can’t tolerate the side effects of these medications. Some people simply prefer not to take drugs. TMS therapy is a viable drug-free alternative.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive
Some depression treatments involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, often requiring anesthesia. These include electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), deep brain stimulation, and vagus nerve stimulation.
Unlike these treatments, TMS therapy is non-invasive. It doesn’t involve surgery or require anesthesia to effectively treat depression.
3. TMS Treatment Is Nearly Side-Effect Free
TMS therapy can cause temporary discomfort at or near the treatment site during a session. This usually subsides after the first week of treatment. Less than 5% of TMS patients discontinue TMS therapy due to side effects.

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 Before TMS Therapy Starts to Work?
Most people begin to feel positive results within two to three weeks of starting TMS therapy. For some, these good changes may start even sooner!
The effects of TMS therapy are long-term, but you may need booster treatments to stay free from depression. Booster treatments usually takes a few consecutive sessions per year, if at all. In most cases, insurance covers them.

Who Is Eligible for TMS?
The majority of people with depression can benefit from TMS therapy. A small number of people are ineligible, and this is typically because they have non-removable metal in their head that disqualifies them from receiving TMS. That’s because the metal reacts unfavorably with magnetic energy.
We don’t treat patients who have:
- Medical devices, such as cochlear implants, deep brain stimulators, and vagus nerve stimulators
- Bullets and shrapnel
- Facial tattoos with magnetic or metallic ink
- Some types of dental work (Most dental work is acceptable.)
