How TMS Therapy changed Brittany's Life

Watch and listen below as Brittany describes her life-changing experience with TMS Therapy and how it helped her battle her depression. After 15 years of therapy, medications, and meditation not working, Brittany decided to try something different.

"My name is Brittany. I have suffered with depression for fifteen years. It was just normal for me, and it was normal for so long that I hadn’t realized how debilitating it was. I have taken several medications over the last fifteen years, I did therapy for years, I tried all the coping skills, the meditation, the breathing techniques. I pretty much have gone through everything. I was at my lowest of the low, and it was getting to the point where it was like, “why not try TMS”. It completely changed my life. It was super easy. You just come in, you sit down, they start it, and then it’s done. You get up and leave and you go about your day. You don’t notice that something so small can have such a huge impact. After TMS, I am a completely different person. My husband looks at me sometimes and says “I’m so glad you’re back”. I say hi to people I don’t know, again. I call and text my friends, I go for walks, I enjoy everything in life that I had taken for granted those fifteen years. It has made a complete difference in my life".

TMS Therapy has helped Brittany and thousands of patients with depression who have not received adequate support from antidepressants. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. TMS therapy is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for depression that does not require surgery or medication. Moreover, it ranks among the most technologically advanced treatments available for depression. In real clinical settings, 75% of patients showed significant response following 30 treatment sessions, and 50% achieved remission

The TMS Center at Compassion Mental Health Services is Lawrence County's first and most experienced provider of TMS therapy and has helped dozens of patients achieve remission. Our TMS technicians and board-certified psychiatrists with specialized training in TMS Therapy, will guide you throughout the process.
