Deep TMS therapy is a revolutionary new method that can potentially give us the ability to mitigate the symptoms of a variety of mental and medical health issues. Using an electromagnetic coil inside of a helmet-like piece of TMS equipment, deep TMS therapy uses these coils to release non-invasive magnetic pulses that reach the deeper neurological structures in your brain, and these pulses can potentially regulate and stabilize some forms of neural activity.

At LifeThrive, we are proud to provide a wide variety of therapy, functional medicine, and counseling services to folks around southern Illinois, including deep TMS therapy. The potential that deep TMS therapy has to help people is incredible, and there are a wide variety of disorders that are already in experimental treatment with deep TMS therapy, including major depressive disorder, OCD, Parkinsons, Alzheimers, multiple sclerosis (MS), chronic pain, smoking cessation, anxiety, PTSD, and epilepsy. Learn more about TMS therapy on this page, and how LifeThrive could potentially revolutionize your life with a deep TMS therapy treatment.
