Addressing Misconceptions: Navigating TMS Therapy Concerns

While TMS Therapy has been transformative for many, addressing concerns and providing accurate information is essential. Misconceptions like “TMS ruined my life” highlight the importance of a thorough assessment to determine if TMS is the right choice for you. No therapy is a “one size fits all” solution in mental health, so though TMS may not have worked for some, it does not mean it has not helped countless others [4]. Our dedicated team is committed to understanding your unique needs and ensuring TMS Therapy is a suitable and promising option. 


The protocol at our Los Angeles TMS Therapy center adheres to the highest safety standards. This approach has been rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness, ensuring a reliable path to mental wellness without significant or long-lasting side effects.

  • How long is a typical TMS Therapy session? A typical session lasts around 20 to 30 minutes; most individuals undergo daily sessions for several weeks.
  • When can I expect to see results? Individual responses vary, but many patients notice improved mood and overall well-being after a few weeks of consistent treatment.
  • Is TMS Therapy painful? TMS Therapy is generally well-tolerated by most individuals. Some may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, but it’s not painful.
  • Who is eligible for TMS? Eligibility for TMS is generally open to those experiencing TRD. However, there are conditions. If you have a history of seizures, mania, or metal implants in or around your head, you’re generally not considered a good candidate for TMS.
  • Does insurance cover TMS? Most insurance plans cover TMS as long as you meet the specific requirements for treating TRD. Each insurance company may have their own guidelines on what constitutes TRD, so it’s essential to consult your policy.

Informed decisions lead to better outcomes. Call today and assess for yourself if TMS Therapy is right for you.
