The Best TMS Therapy Clinics in Los Angeles, California

TMS Therapy is one of the fastest growing mental health treatments in the United States. There is evidence that TMS — which stands for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation — can help treat depression, PTSD, anxiety and many other mental health issues.

Just as encouraging, many insurance plans cover TMS therapy for a wide range of conditions. (Not all conditions, however).

If you’ve not heard of TMS therapy, it’s a non-invasive method of brain stimulation. It uses electromagnetic waves to target areas of the brain that are thought to effect a person’s mood. And while we currently don’t exactly know why TMS therapy produces many successful results, there is growing research that it does.

Since TMS therapy doesn’t involve a patient taking any form of medication (like SSRIs, psychedelics or anything else), it has become increasingly popular. TMS therapy results often show up within two weeks after treatment, so results are more noticeable when compared to options like antidepressants — which can take six weeks before they start working.

However, like all therapeutic methods, there are some downsides.

Not only can TMS temporarily make you feel a bit odd during the session, but there is a bit of discomfort — however, this gets better with regular visits. TMS therapy also does not work for everyone. Finally, in extremely rare cases, there can be lingering side effects — the risk of developing a seizure during TMS therapy is about 0.1 percent.

But because research is beginning to support TMS therapy for a variety of mental health issues, let’s dive into what to look for when discovering whether this alternative therapy is right for you.
