At Reliant Family Psychiatry, your TMS sessions will be in a calm, comfortable setting, ensuring ease throughout the treatment. The procedure involves positioning a magnetic coil near your head to deliver pulses to brain areas controlling mood. Each session lasts about 30 to 60 minutes, during which you might feel a light tapping on your head and hear a clicking sound, both normal sensations.

Conveniently, no sedation is required, allowing you to immediately resume daily activities, including driving. Typically, the treatment includes five weekly sessions for 4-6 weeks, customized to your specific needs. Our commitment is to provide compassionate care and the latest in TMS therapy to support your wellness journey.

NeuroStar TMS and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

People with OCD often have parts of their brain working overtime, which causes them to repeat the same actions or thoughts again and again. rTMS therapy aims to calm these overly busy brain areas, helping to keep things in balance.

Besides treating OCD and anxiety, TMS therapy is also helpful for conditions like autism, PTSD, chronic pain, and more. These days, scientists are really seeing how useful NeuroStar therapy can be, especially for conditions that don't respond well to regular medicines or talking therapies.
