Mind Therapy Clinic Offers No Drug Depression Treatment, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Mind Therapy Clinic now offers Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for the treatment of severe depression.

Corte Madera, CA, October 14, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Mind Therapy Clinic psychiatric treatment now offers a FDA approved non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive outpatient treatment for depression called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or TMS. This treatment is especially welcomed in both the medical and patient communities as if offers hope to those who haven’t responded to oral anti-depressants in the past and it is an alternative for those with other health conditions which rules out a pharmaceutical treatment approach.

"As one of the only clinics in the Bay Area that provides TMS treatment, we are very excited for our patients who have proven to suffer from treatment-resistant depression. Depression is debilitating on its own, but when there is seemingly no relief, it’s unbearable," says Mark Schiller, MD, Medical Director and founder of Mind Therapy Clinic.

TMS uses a magnetic field - similar to that used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - to stimulate the brain’s dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which plays a key role in mood. TMS causes more connectivity between nerves in the brain, an increase in the amount of neural activity, and an increase in the amount of neurotransmitters such as serotonin. The increased activity of neurons in this area of the brain lessens depression.

Mind Therapy Clinic offers end-to-end care through their Intensive Outpatient Program, Partial Hospitalization Program, Center for Trauma, and various psychiatric outpatient services. Care is tailored to meet each client’s specific needs, diagnosis, types of issues and severity. Their experienced physicians, nurse practitioners, doctoral-level psychologists, master’s level therapists, trauma specialists and care providers ensure excellence in continued care with a collaborative focus.
