TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) is a non-invasive treatment that is used for the treatment of major depression. During treatment, a coil is placed on the scalp that sends magnetic currents to the part of the brain that regulates emotions. It works equally and often better than anti-depressant medication alone. It has significantly fewer side effects than traditional medication used to treat depression. It is FDA approved for major depression in adults and there is peer reviewed, evidence based-based research to support its use for PTSD, OCD and adolescent depression.
