It's not you, it's the brain.

A deficiency in left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex activity, situated at the frontal left region of the brain, is a contributing factor to depression. When this specific area functions optimally, it triggers widespread brain activation, leading to enhanced mood, improved working memory, and heightened selective attention.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a cutting-edge therapy that uses brief electromagnetic pulses to treat various brain conditions safely and effectively. The magnetic energy pulses stimulate cells in specific parts of the brain to improve mood, memory, sleep, and general cerebral performance. TMS can be used to help patients achieve remission from many conditions and improve their quality of life.
TMS is non-invasive, well-tolerated, and requires no advanced preparation, anesthesia, or recovery time. It is a great option for those who are not responding well to drug therapy, wish to try a non-drug treatment, or have no other treatment options. This treatment has been approved by the FDA and has limited side effects. Since TMS involves strong electromagnetic energy, those with pacemakers, implanted medical devices, and brain aneurysm coils are ineligible for treatment.
You will feel a tapping sensation on the side of the head during TMS. Some patients describe it as a “woodpecker” sensation on the side of the head. The intensity of the treatment is adjusted to your comfort level. Most patients say that they get used to the sensation in a matter of minutes. You will be given earplugs to help minimize the noise and help you relax, making the experience as seamless as possible for you.

For best results, it is highly recommended to complete a course of 10 sessions over 2 weeks. This is the initiation phase of the treatment to train the brain to build a response to the TMS treatment. Follow-up maintenance sessions will then be determined on a case-by-case basis with the treating physician.

Rachel B.

I was in a really low place suffering from terrible depression and anxiety. In addition to acupuncture, Dr. Helen suggested I add in TMS to accelerate recovery. By my 5th TMS session I was feeling so much better, the depression was gone. After the 10th TMS session, my anxiety was gone! I felt like myself again. I continued doing it 6 times after that to ensure everything was solid and it was! Dr. Helen and Chloe are so caring, kind, empathetic and honest, I cannot suggest TMS enough. If you are considering doing it, think no further, it will change your life for the best.

Shelley S.

I went to my regular neurology appointment with Dr. Helen Ly. I had been really struggling and asked her about Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy. She was able to get me in quickly and start my treatment plan. I saw a 95% decrease in my depression and an 85% decrease in my anxiety. I saw a 90% increase in my concentration and focus all in my first two weeks of treatment. I would definitely recommend TMS therapy at Body Brain Balance.

TMS has truly changed my life. I suffer from trigeminal neuralgia. With the help of Dr’s Ly and staff, I have been able to remain functional even during the most intensive flare ups. They are kind, understanding, and always patient oriented. Whatever your issue, if TMS is an option, I strongly advise that you try it. As I said, it has changed my life and I could never thank them enough.
