Get Depression Relief Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in South Barrington
Although depression is a treatable illness, the most common treatments—medication and lifestyle changes—aren’t effective for everyone. If you’ve tried these treatments without success, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may help you find the relief you’re looking for. This treatment has a proven record of success, with more than 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 65,000 people. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers (HPRTC) in South Barrington, Illinois offers TMS therapy, a depression treatment that can help you rediscover life’s joys.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression treatment that is drug-free and doesn’t involve any invasive procedures. In TMS therapy, the prefrontal cortex of the brain is stimulated with magnetic energy, so it works more effectively to regulate mood.
When you have TMS therapy in South Barrington, an HPRTC technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. They turn on the device, and the coil emits magnetic pulses that stimulate your prefrontal cortex. Exposure to the magnetic field helps your brain regulate your mood to lift your depression symptoms.
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 depression treatments in three important ways:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free.
TMS therapy is drug-free. This means it’s a good option for people who:
- Don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate medication’s side effects
- Don’t want to take drugs for depression
Medication works for many people, but not everyone can or wants to take anti-depressants. TMS therapy can be a good alternative for depression treatment.
2. TMS Therapy Is Non-Invasive.
TMS therapy isn’t the only drug-free depression treatment. Some others are vagus nerve stimulation, deep brain stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. However, these are unpleasant procedures or involve invasive surgery, as well as anesthesia.
TMS therapy is very different: There’s no anesthesia and no unpleasant or invasive procedures. Instead, you are awake, alert, and comfortable.
3. TMS Treatment Is Almost Side-Effect Free.
Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects. For these patients, there can be discomfort at or near the treatment site during the treatment. This usually subsides after the first week.

How Long Does It Take for TMS Therapy to Work?
For most people, it takes only two to three weeks of treatment for the positive effects to be noticeable. Sometimes it happens even sooner!
The effects of TMS are long-term, but some people need occasional booster treatments to stay depression-free. If you need booster treatments, it’s likely you’ll need only one per year.

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