Depression is not a fun deal, that’s a certainty. Anyone who has ever suffered with low mood will tell you how bad it feels, but when you step it up and suffer from full blown depression, there really doesn’t feel like any hope or light in the world at all. Winter time can be a troubling time for many, with the festive season not too far away, and the guilt of not really feeling that festive coming from nowhere. The important thing to remember here however, is that you are certainly not alone.
The first port of call when you visit the doctor suffering from this upsetting condition is usually anti-depressant medication, but that doesn’t work for everyone, and can sometimes bring about unpleasant side effects, which may be impossible to deal with. If that’s the case, where do you turn?
TMS therapy, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, as it is better known, is an FDA approved treatment for major depression, and for those who haven’t found any help from anti-depressants, or who can’t deal with the side effects.
Beating that winter feeling
Of course, simply feeling down because of the time of year is normal, but when the feelings turn into something much darker, it’s time to take action. TMS could be the answer, a downtime-free process which works to send complex magnetic pulses to the part of the brain which is responsible for altering and affecting mood.
Each session takes around half an hour, and basically involves you sitting in a chair, whilst you let our highly skilled staff work their magic. A magnetic coil will be placed at one side of your head, and will penetrate the brain with magnetic pulses, targeting the prefrontal cortex, which kicks into action your own neurotransmitters, altering cells and creating a balance. What happens then? You get up and go about your daily business, that’s what!
The number of treatments required to achieve a lasting result depends on the person, and this is something that will be discussed with you at your initial consultation. We are dedicated to helping the residents of Manhattan NYC beat their winter depression concerns, looking forward to a festive season that is packed with happy memories, rather than worries that darken such a bright and sparkly time of year.
