Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Schaumburg
Are you struggling with depression and wondering if you’ll ever find a treatment that works? Standard treatments like medication and lifestyle adjustments don’t work for everyone. If you’re still looking for an effective depression treatment, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) could be the answer. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers (HPRTC) in Schaumburg, IL offers TMS, a safe, drug-free depression treatment that works. TMS therapy has a proven track record: 2,150,000 treatment sessions provided to over 65,000 people.
What Is TMS?
TMS depression treatment doesn’t require taking any medication and is completely non-invasive. It stimulates a region of the brain called your prefrontal cortex, which is where mood is regulated. If you have depression, this part of the brain is under-active, which means your mood isn’t regulated as well as it should be. TMS therapy stimulates the prefrontal cortex to improve your mood and lift your symptoms of depression.
When you have TMS therapy at our Schaumburg HPR treatment center, one of our technicians gently places an electromagnetic coil on your head. They switch the device on, and the coil sends painless magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex. The stimulatory effect of the magnetic pulses helps the prefrontal cortex work more effectively to regulate mood.
TMS therapy is a highly effective depression treatment. Our patient testimonials show it.

In What Ways Is TMS Different from Other Depression Treatments?
Here’s what makes TMS therapy unique:
1. It’s Drug-Free.
TMS therapy is completely drug-free, which makes it suitable for people who:
- Don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate the side effects of medication
- Don’t want to take anti-depressant drugs
Not everyone is able to, nor do they want to, take anti-depressants. TMS therapy can be a good alternative to get relief from depression.
TMS therapy isn’t the only drug-free depression treatment. Electroconvulsive therapy, vagus nerve stimulation, and deep brain stimulation are options. While these treatments are drug-free, they are also invasive, requiring surgery or unpleasant procedures, and often involving anesthesia.
TMS therapy is both drug-free and non-invasive – and you can even listen to music or watch TV while you have treatment!
3. Virtually Free of Side Effects
Some people have side effects as a result of TMS therapy, but these side effects are short-lived and mild. The most common side effect is discomfort at or near the treatment site, while having the treatment. This discomfort usually subsides after the first week of treatment sessions.
Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects.

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?
For most people, it takes around two to three weeks to start seeing positive changes in mood after beginning TMS therapy. For others, it happens even sooner!
The benefits of TMS therapy are long-term; however, you may need booster treatments to stay depression-free. If you do, it’ll likely be just one per year. Most insurance providers cover booster treatments.
Does Insurance Cover Schaumburg TMS Therapy?
TMS therapy has documented success in treating depression, and it’s FDA-approved. This means that most insurance carriers do provide coverage for TMS therapy.
