What to Expect with TMS Therapy in Chesapeake VA

TMS Therapy employs magnetic fields to treat mood and behavior issues. In order to deliver the right amount of stimulation, MRI-strength magnetic fields are created with the TMS Therapy system. The treatment coil is positioned on the patient’s head over the left prefrontal cortex, which is associated with mood regulation. 

The magnetic treatment coil only reaches 2-3 centimeters into your brain directly beneath it; the waves do not reach all parts of the brain. The magnets move in and produce minuscule electrical currents that activate this part of the brain to improve mood without any negative consequences from the treatment itself.
