Mood Control and TMS Treatment
Mood control is a function of the brain that is facilitated by chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. These chemicals are responsible for helping the brain relay impulses from one region of the brain to the other. Thus, regulating normal functions of the body. The release of neurotransmitters can be stimulated either chemically or electrically.
Our TMS treatment is a more targeted and specific method of stimulating the desired region of the brain via an electromagnetic field. The treatment is effective and can help achieve desired results. It is non-invasive, has no harmful side effects, and is fully covered by your insurance.
How TMS Works?
This process is non-invasive, thus requires no surgery or anesthetic to relax you. It is also non-systemic, hence relieving your body of the burden of the harmful and discomforting side effects that systemic antidepressant drugs can cause.
An electric field is applied to the prefrontal cortex through the TMS apparatus. This electric field stimulates the electrical release of neurotransmitters. After this direct stimulation of release, secondary stimulation of deep-lying brain regions occurs. This activation of the brain’s deeper regions helps stimulate the release of neurotransmitters at the mood control regions of the brain.
Our therapists determine the level of electric field (treatment dose) required to elicit this mood-boosting effect. Each session of treatment lasts for 18 minutes. We schedule them five days a week for nine weeks.
