Step 3.

Starting TMS Treatment

Start Treatment Same Day.

Starting rTMS Treatment. On the first day, your motor threshold and treatment intensity will be determined. Objective measurement of your depression symptoms will be completed by our mental health (TMS) technician. You are now ready to start your first session of rTMS treatment.

All this can be done in one day and you can start treatment on the same day too. 

The rTMS sessions are 20 minutes long and you will receive 3000 magnetic pulses per session.

How long is it before benefits from TMS are observed?

Patients need 20 to 30 sessions of rTMS to derive the most benefit in the treatment of their depression. “In clinical trials, one in two patients achieved significant relief of symptoms after four weeks of treatment and one in three experienced complete remission after six weeks of treatment. Some patients may experience results in less time, while others may take longer.

During the course of TMS treatment, the TMS technician continually re-evaluates your condition and your response to the treatment as well as periodic assessments of the dose level and coil position to ensure the most effective treatment.
