TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive and gentle brain stimulation used to treat anxiety and depression and general brain function. A gentle pulsed electromagnetic field is used to stimulate nerve cells that trigger normal synapse firing for both hemispheres and areas of the brain. TMS is shown to help reawaken electrical activity in the brain where there is reduced activity which improves neuro-transmitters.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) at Cryo Body Works are generally 5-10 minutes in duration. Three treatments weekly in a total sequence of 10 sessions are recommended for best results. TMS has shown potential for conditions such as anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, Alzheimer's, traumatic brain injury, tinnitus, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, strokes, Parkinson's, and more. Potential side effects include headache (overstimulation and dehydration), tingling, facial muscle twitching / spasms, lightheadedness. Electrical brain implants are a contraindication.
