Transcranial magnetic stimulation is an innovative treatment from the forefront of medical science. It offers a safe and evidence-based alternative to antidepressant medications and talk therapy.
If you’re considering TMS therapy, you might wonder how long a TMS course is, how many sessions you need, and the schedule.
What Is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS Therapy) is a non-invasive treatment that uses gentle magnetic pulses to stimulate specific brain cells that regulate mood and behavior. An evidence-based therapy, TMS can alleviate symptoms of many mental health conditions, including major depressive disorder (MDD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
TMS is a safe, painless brain stimulation therapy with few side effects. You stay conscious throughout the treatment and can drive to and from therapy sessions. TMS was cleared by the FDA for treatment-resistant depression in 2008 and OCD in 2018. We will soon offer the OCD coil through CloudNeuro TMS in late 2023.
What Is Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)?
rTMS is a type of TMS therapy that uses trains of multiple magnetic pulses (as opposed to single pulses) to stimulate nerve cells. Because almost all mental health applications of TMS therapy use rTMS therapy, the terms are often used interchangeably.
What Is Deep TMS?
Deep TMS therapy is a type of TMS therapy that stimulates brain cells in deeper brain areas. It uses specialized “H-coils” to access extensive neuronal pathways without needing to increase the intensity of the pulses.
Deep TMS has expanded the use of TMS therapy to treat symptoms of a broader range of mental disorders.
TMS Number of Sessions: How Many Treatments Are Needed?
A standard course of TMS therapy is around 36 treatment sessions – daily sessions five times a week for six weeks, and then tapering off during the final weeks.
Research has shown that one course of TMS treatment can lead to long-lasting improvements in depressive symptoms showing a sustained positive response up to year after treatment.
You can always participate in maintenance sessions after your initial treatment course. Maintenance TMS treatments vary in schedule and will depend on insurance coverage. Maintenance treatments may be beneficial for conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder, where the risk of relapse is typically higher.
How Many Sessions Does It Take for TMS to Work?
Every client is different. Some clients may notice small changes in a standard course of TMS after two to three weeks (12 – 24 sessions), while others start to see improvements after the 36 treatments have been completed. It’s recommended that clients complete an entire course of treatment regardless of when they first see improvements.
