There’s Hope and Help For Treatment-resistant Depression

Living with treatment-resistant depression can feel like traveling through the metaphorical tunnel without the hope of seeing the light at the end. If medications have not helped or only been partially efficacious, TMS may be the therapy for you.

At Memor Health, we know how frustrating and demoralizing it can be to try to search and search for the right treatment for your depression. That’s why we’re adding Magstim® TMS Therapy for Depression to our offerings to help our patients. This noninvasive treatment can help individuals with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) that doesn’t respond to psychotherapy, medication, or other holistic modalities. For many people, TMS can be the light at the end of the tunnel and help them find a place of ease.

TMS is a noninvasive procedure performed in a doctor’s office or clinic, like Memor health. Treatment sessions last less than 45 minutes and are typically performed five days per week, over six weeks. After completing a series of treatment sessions, almost two out of three patients feel relief from their depression.

What’s The Science Behind Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy?

video-img

So, how does Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy help alleviate depression? We need to dig into how our brains work to understand how it works.

Our brains are a collection of nerve cells with trillions of connections that control our conscious and unconscious actions, including how we move, perceive the world, feel emotions, and process information. It relies on the activation of electrical impulses along nerve fibers that trigger biochemical changes at nerve junctions. A nerve cell fires when an electrical impulse travels along its lane. It communicates with other nerve cells by releasing neurotransmitters, which create electrical impulses in other cells. However, in depressed patients, the electrical activity in some brain regions can be reduced.

Scientists have discovered that Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation can change the electrical events occurring in the brain by using magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. For depression, TMS can stimulate nerve cells in the region of your brain involved in mood control and activate areas with decreased activity.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) FAQs

Q.
A.

What is it like to receive TMS therapy for depression?

A.

During a TMS session, a focused electromagnetic coil is placed against your scalp near your forehead and delivers repetitive magnetic pulses o the targeted area of the brain. So, sometimes TMS is also called Repetitive TMS or RTMS.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is usually conducted in an outpatient setting like Memor Health. Treatment sessions last less than 45 minutes and are typically performed five days per week, over six weeks.

You will be seated in a comfortable chair, some measurements may be taken, and you may receive earplugs.

Your doctor will position the magnetic coil on your head, and treatment will begin. You may feel a moderate tapping on your head under the treatment coil, and you will remain awake and alert throughout treatment.

Following your session, you will be able to drive home, and you can resume normal activities for the rest of the day.

Q.
A.

How much does Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation cost?

A.

TMS is covered by most insurance companies. Please contact Memor Health about your insurance plan. We also offer a cash rate. Our staff can discuss the details with you.

Q.
A.

How is TMS different from ECT?

A.

TMS and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) are effective in treating depression, but ECT is associated with far more side effects and is significantly more intense.

ECT is performed in a hospital, and you must be anesthetized and restrained during the procedure. ECT works by applying a brief electrical pulse to the brain that medically induces a seizure.

By contrast, TMS is affordable, less invasive, and involves no downtime.

Q.
A.

Are there any side effects from Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?

A.

TMS is a safe and well-tolerated treatment with very few side effects. Clinical studies show that the most common side effects are mild to moderate scalp discomfort and mild headaches, both of which are short term2

Q.
A.

Am I eligible to receive TMS therapy for depression?

A.

In the US, TMS therapy is appropriate for adults with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication in the current episode.

I used to live my life totally within a level of black and white. And now I live in a world where I can see all the different colors. I can see joy. I can see sadness. I can see ecstasy. I can see pain. (TMS Therapy) gives me the opportunity to actually live my life for the first time. Do not sit there and live this way because you don’t.

TMS Therapy Testimonial

Dr. K,

I had such a positive experience with my TMS sessions, I felt compelled to write this testimonial. During the first week, I was dreading with the thought of having to drive from Minden to Reno, 36 different times, but that dread went away because every day when I arrived, I felt so welcomes by Frances, and Tiffany, that I actually looked forward for anothyer session. I didn’t have a since negative issue with any of my sessions, and I gained alot of respect for Tiffant, not only because she was very professional, but I could sense she would get great joy in treatments that had success with certain patients. And we got along so well, that I wouldn’t hesitate to do a booster sessioni, if I feel I need it.

Even though I have only had 2 sessions with Jim so far, I am very pleased, my only regret, is if I has known there were therapists like him, I would have been more open minded before, and seen a therapist years ago. I also would like you to know that it means a lot to me that you have found time with your busy schedule, to fit me and take care of my medications for me.

TMS Therapy Testimonial

To whom it may concern,

TMS therapy saved my life. It really helped rewire my brain and to have hope and be excited for life. Getting back on schedule by keeping appointments really helped bring structure to my life. Tiffany was really encouraging and bright and cheerful every time I got to see her. She is calm and confident in her work and the treatment, and you can tell without her even saying it. She kept me talking and smiling and made each session go by in the blink of an eye. Tiffany is such a great, amazing, hard-working woman and I really enjoyed and looked forward to coming into treatment every day. She is relatable, and easy to talk to. The treatment itself wasn’t painful and I didn’t have very many side effects. Either way Tiffany walked me through all the ups and downs of the treatment, getting waves of big emotions and knowing that it was going to be okay. I do not believe that getting this treatment with anyone else would have gone as good or have been this successful. I would highly recommend TMS to anyone struggling with major depression. I saw changes happening within the first few weeks of treatment, and it might sound scary but it’s not painful and can even be relaxing. I talk about my experience in the treatment and with Tiffany every chance that I get. It changed how I think, in the best ways possible.

Thank you so much for your time,
Maggie C.

TMS Therapy Testimonial

Tiffany, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude for the exceptional care and support you provided to my cousin Cheryl throughout her recent journey with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) treatment. Your compassionate approach and unwavering dedication truly made a remarkable difference in Cheryl’s overall experience and outcome.

For years, Cheryl battled with depression and anxiety, and it seemed like an endless uphill struggle. However, upon learning about the TMS treatment option, I suggested we explore it together. Despite initial skepticism from Cheryl, your reassuring presence and calm demeanor helped her feel at ease during each session.

As Cheryl progressed through the treatments, I began noticing subtle yet significant changes in her demeanor, even though she remained doubtful of its effectiveness. It wasn’t long before Cheryl herself started acknowledging the positive shifts in her well-being, a sentiment echoed by fellow residents and staff at her assisted living community.

Tiffany, your dedication to your profession and genuine care for Cheryl’s well-being did not go unnoticed. Your expertise played a pivotal role in Cheryl’s journey towards healing, and for that, we are immensely grateful. I also want to express appreciation to Memor Health for introducing this groundbreaking technology to our community, offering hope and healing to those in need.

Thank you once again for your exceptional service and unwavering commitment to improving lives.

Warm Regards,

Ken M.

TMS Therapy Testimonial

I really appreciate the staff at Memor Health; they were able to schedule me almost immediately for my first TMS session. They were kind and compassionate, and I actually enjoyed going to the office every day. The TMS treatments were a lot faster than I thought; outside of the first week (where I only had a mild headache), I didn’t experience any other side effects. My depression slowly improved each week, and I’m grateful to Dr. K and her team for helping me navigate an extremely difficult time in my life. For those who feel like they are running out of options, I highly recommend reaching out to Memor Health; their innovate approach to healing depression changed my life.  

See you later this week, 

Amy
