Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in the treatment of Major Depression. TMS utilizes pulses of magnetic energy, similar to those produced by a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, to stimulate areas of the brain known to control mood. TMS therapy is an effective alternative treatment for depression without medications. Family Care Center offers both Brainsway and MagVita machines. Though both are used in the treatment of Major Depression, the Brainsway machine is now FDA approved for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and the MagVita machine is now FDA approved for Theta Burst treatment of Depression which is a 3 minute treatment.
