CLAREMONT, Calif., Aug. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Achieve TMS, the largest and most experienced provider of deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) for the treatment of depression, will open a state-of-the-art center in Claremont, CA on September 1. This new center will enable local residents and students to benefit from the powerful and highly effective impact of dTMS technology, which is approved by the FDA and covered by every major health insurance company in the U.S.
"With 1 in 6 Americans suffering from depression there is a huge need for treatments that are proven to make a difference in the battle against this debilitating disease," said Manish Sheth, MD, PhD. "Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is known to be an effective tool in the battle. Patients and their families are looking for an effective way to move away from depression into a place where lives are productive, balanced, healthy and well integrated. TMS is a vital tool that helps facilitate healing. We look forward to partnering with psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists in the Claremont area to expand access to this treatment option."
Deep TMS works by administering magnetic pulses through an H-coil on the scalp that is targeted to the mood center of the brain. The magnetic fields induce electrical currents that stimulate underactive neurons, helping to reset brain chemistry, resulting in improved sleep, concentration and overall mood. It is safe, non-invasive and highly effective for those who are treatment resistant and/or have experienced no relief from medication.
In more than 60 clinical studies globally, dTMS has consistently demonstrated statistically significant response and remission rates. The therapy is well tolerated by patients, causing no adverse effects. Treatment sessions are prescribed 5 days per week for 4-6 weeks, with each session lasting 20 minutes. There is no sedation involved, and no down time.
The new Achieve TMS Center in Claremont is located at 1490 Claremont Blvd. Suite 203.
Achieve TMS welcomes inquiries about the dTMS treatment and is scheduling complimentary consultations and appointments for Claremont at this time.
