How Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Works?

TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that cause depression. Our expert staff aid you to ensure your treatment is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Short Daily Treatments Working Around Your Schedule

Each TMS treatment typically lasts between 18 and 25 minutes.  Treatment occurs while you are sitting comfortably in a chair. 

Most patients enjoy listening to music, reading a book or watching TV during treatment. 

TMS treatment does not affect our patients’ ability to perform normal daily activities.

Return for Your Next Sessions

A full course of TMS Treatment is 36 sessions.  For optimal results, it is recommended that patients undergo treatment five days per week for the first several weeks before slowly decreasing the number of weekly treatments.  At the TMS Center of the Hudson Valley, we work with you to develop a treatment schedule that fits your needs and optimizes your results.

How NeuroStar TMS Therapy Works with Dr. Randy Pardell

When you are severely depressed, there may be certain chemical imbalances in your brain.  Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (“TMS”) identifies which areas of your brain are experiencing these chemical imbalances and uses magnetic energy to stimulate those areas of your brain and reset these imbalances.  Randy I. Pardell, MD, who is a world-renowned expert in TMS and is President-Elect of the Clinical TMS Society, develops an individualized treatment protocol to help you regain normal cognitive function and alleviate depressive symptoms.  TMS is performed in our office, while you are fully awake, and sitting comfortably in a chair.  TMS treatment provides gentle, continuous stimulation to the targeted area of your brain.  Our trained and experienced staff ensures that each and every treatment is comfortable and safe.
