Depression is an illness that affects more than 14 million adults in the United States. Since each individual is unique, medication will not always help alleviate the burden of depression. Additionally, a medication’s side effects can have a negative impact on the body.
An alternative to medication, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to activate brain cells in the prefrontal cortex. As the magnetic fields move into the brain, they produce small electrical currents that activate cells which are then thought to release neurotransmitters.
