This treatment involves 10 minute weekday session for two months. Acacia Mental Health is a leading provider of TMS near Mountain View, CA.
Studies have shown that it is very effective with long-lasting effects after treatments are completed. TMS is a non medication, alternative treatment is a great option for patients who have tried antidepressants and had poor results or cannot tolerate the side effects.
