Meadowbrook Counseling Launches Innovative TMS Therapy in Orem, Utah, Offering a New Approach in Depression Treatment
Meadowbrook Counseling, renowned for its personalized and transformative therapy services, proudly introduces Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy in Orem, Utah. This pioneering treatment complements our diverse range of evidence-based approaches, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Neurofeedback, enhancing our commitment to treating complex mental health issues such as major depressive disorder (MDD), particularly in patients who have found limited success with conventional therapies.
TMS therapy, sanctioned by the FDA for depression treatment, employs magnetic fields to stimulate the brain's prefrontal cortex. This advanced method is designed to activate neurons in areas typically underactive in depressed individuals, aiming to alleviate symptoms and elevate mood. TMS has demonstrated high effectiveness, particularly for those unresponsive to traditional antidepressants. About 50% of patients experience notable symptom reduction, making it effective for conditions like MDD, anxiety, OCD, and PTSD.
The treatment is characterized by minimal, transient side effects, such as scalp discomfort or headaches, which are less severe compared to those of systemic medications. Furthermore, TMS offers long-lasting results, with many patients reporting ongoing mood improvements post-treatment. The sessions, lasting 20-40 minutes, are conveniently short, enabling easy integration into daily schedules.
Reflecting on the efficacy of TMS, a Harvard Health Blog notes that "Approximately 50% to 60% of individuals unresponsive to medications have seen a clinically meaningful response with TMS. About one-third achieve full remission." These statistics highlight TMS's transformative potential, especially in treatment-resistant cases.
At Meadowbrook Counseling, we integrate TMS therapy into our holistic healing framework, maintaining our ethos of creating a nurturing space for all clients. For more details on TMS therapy, please click here.
