General Information

If you’ve been struggling with symptoms that have left you feeling frustrated, helpless, and hopeless, we’re here to tell you that there is a brighter future ahead. Our center specializes in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that offers new possibilities for those who have not found relief through traditional methods.

At The Healthy Brain Center, we understand the impact these conditions can have on your life, affecting not only your mental well-being but also your relationships, work/school, and overall quality of life. That’s why we’re passionate about offering hope and creating a safe and supportive environment for our patients.

 

TMS is used for a variety of mental and physical health conditions. It is a cutting-edge therapy that uses magnetic pulses to repeatedly stimulate specific areas of the brain. These gentle magnetic fields, delivered through a painless procedure, activate selected neurons and dormant neural pathways, helping to alleviate the symptoms of conditions such as depression, OCD, PTSD, chronic pain, anxious distress, and more.
We utilize state-of-the-art brain mapping technology to gain a deeper understanding of your brain’s unique patterns and responses. We also take the time to understand your symptoms, history, and goals. By utilizing StimGuide, a FDA 510K cleared navigation system, and EEG brain mapping as needed, we can tailor your TMS treatment specifically to your individual needs. These allow us to gain a deeper understanding of your brain’s unique characteristics and adapt the treatment accordingly. This combination of neuronavigational technology and our expertise enhances the precision and effectiveness of TMS, providing a tailored therapy that improves outcomes for your mental health and well-being.
TMS is often recommended for individuals who have not found relief from their symptoms through traditional methods, such as medication or therapy. Additionally, TMS is a non-invasive and drug-free treatment option that is generally well-tolerated with minimal side effects. If you prefer to explore therapies without medication or want to reduce your reliance on medication, TMS provides an appealing alternative that also allows individuals to continue their daily activities immediately following the treatment. It’s important to note that the suitability of TMS varies on an individual basis. To determine if TMS is right for you, it is recommended to undergo a comprehensive evaluation and consultation with The Healthy Brain Center TMS Psychiatrist.
We believe in treating the whole person, not just the symptoms. Alongside TMS, our sister centers, Teen Therapy Center and Family Therapy Center, offer a range of therapies that compliment TMS, including counseling, mindfulness techniques, and lifestyle recommendations, to support your overall mental wellness and enhance the benefits of your treatment. Our center is equipped with the latest TMS technology, ensuring that you receive the most advanced treatment available. The Healthy Brain Center uses a MagStim TMS machine with StimGuide neuronavigation technology to ensure you get the best outcomes with each TMS treatment. We adhere to strict safety protocols and maintain a comfortable and welcoming environment, putting your well-being at the forefront of everything we do. Our team of highly trained professionals, including a skilled and very experienced psychiatric physician supervisor and compassionate clinicians, provide the highest level of care. With years of experience in the field, we have a deep understanding of the complexities of mental health and the transformative power of TMS.
