The TMS Experience - Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy

By November 14, 2012

Follow me on:

Man relaxingWhat's it like to undergo TMS therapy? Does transcranial magnetic stimulation hurt? Are there side effects? What happens during a therapy session? Are there side effects? Does it leave you groggy?

In the third part of the interview with Dr. Kira Stein of the West Coast TMS Institute, speaking with Andy Behrman and me, the doctor answers all these questions. She says some patients actually fall asleep during therapy!

Sounds fascinating and a viable alternative to meds.

I’d love to see an article on CES (Cranial Electric Stimulation), how it differs from TMS and what the general feedback on it is. Thanks for all the information you put out there.
