Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy

Did you ever have a client with depression where medication and psychotherapy did not seem to have any results? TMS Therapy is a promising new treatment using magnetic fields on nerves in the brain. I know we may think magnetic bracelets or mattresses being the rage are not therapeutic. I would not run out and invest in those, but this type of magnetic treatment was approved of by the FDA in 2011. Some patients who struggled long term were even cured of depression. It will be interesting to see the long term affects of TMS.
