MagVita TMS Therapy ® system is a complete system for effectively treating depression.

What is Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) Therapy?
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a clinically-proven therapy for Major Depressive Disorder. It is an FDA-approved therapy in which a cranial device delivers magnetic pulses to targeted neurons that regulate the mood. This non-invasive magnetic activity has been used to help patients overcome severe depressive disorders.
Since 1992, MagVenture has been the leading researcher and provider of rTMS therapy devices, and Restorative Brain Clinic is a proud partner, delivering fast results to our patients.
How Does rTMS Work?
rTMS works by delivering painless, targeted pulses of magnetic energy via electromagnetic coils. These coils are placed directly on your head and are focused on the part of your brain that regulates mood. By stimulating this part of your brain, new connections and pathways are formed, relieving depression symptoms for most patients.
rTMS Can Help you Overcome Depression
rTMS Treatment Program
Each rTMS treatment is customized for you. During your first appointment, your Restorative Brain Clinic doctor will discuss your symptoms and analyze where to place the MagVenture TMS.
Once placed, your therapy will last between 30 and 60 minutes. During this therapy, you’ll be awake, alert, and able to relax. Afterward, you can go about your day as usual. Side effects are mild and include a headache, lightheadedness, and general discomfort. Many patients see results in as little as two weeks.
How Effective is rTMS?
In a 2010 study, the first round of rTMS therapy was found to be successful for 14 percent of patients; in the second round of rTMS, it increased to 30 percent.
For some people with depression, traditional treatments aren’t successful. MagVenture’s rTMS treatment is approved by the FDA for depressed patients who do not respond to at least one antidepressant medication.
