Life is too short feel sad and depressed all the time. If you or a loved one is suffering from major depressive disorder (MDD) or any type of depression, Flourish Mental Health is here to help you overcome your mental health struggle through a procedure called dTMS therapy.

What is dTMS?

dTMS stands for Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, a type of therapy and non-invasive medical procedure that is used to treat certain neurological and psychiatric conditions, such as major depressive disorder (MDD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). A variation of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), dTMS therapy typically targets deeper regions of the brain.

dTMS is an FDA-approved procedure and uses a technology similar to what is used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and procedures.

How does dTMS Therapy Work?

With dTMS therapy, a magnetic coil is placed on the scalp of the patient to deliver brief magnetic pulses and stimulate the deeper areas of the brain, such as the prefrontal cortex which is responsible for mood regulation, focus, and emotion and reaction management.

The dTMS device delivers a series of magnetic pulses, which induce small electrical currents in the brain. These currents help modulate neural activity in the targeted brain area, normalizing brain function and alleviating symptoms of depression. Each session typically lasts around 20 to 30 minutes, and patients usually undergo multiple sessions over several weeks to see visible results. dTMS is administered under the supervision of trained healthcare professionals.

This procedure is primarily used as an alternative treatment for individuals who have not adequately or effectively responded to medications and other treatments. For instance, if a patient cannot tolerate or does not wish to use antidepressant medications, dTMS can be a great alternative.
