What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?

Transcranial magnetic stimulation is an FDA-approved non-invasive neuromodulation therapy for treatment-resistant depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Repetitive and brief magnetic pulses are given by the treatment coil. It stimulates the growth of the neural system, regulates neural connections, and releases necessary brain chemicals.

What is Ketamine Therapy?

Ketamine therapy offers a novel treatment avenue for individuals with treatment-resistant mental illnesses like depression, anxiety, PTSD, and bipolar disorder. Administered in controlled clinical settings through intramuscular and subcutaneous injections, ketamine’s rapid onset of action distinguishes it from traditional antidepressants, often alleviating symptoms within hours or days. Its mechanism of action involves modulation of neurotransmitter systems and promotion of new synaptic connections in the brain.
