I’ve heard about this a little bit a while ago and just recently read up on it again...

TMS Therapy (or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is apparently the medication free treatment for anxiety with very minimal side affects. Using the magnetic technology, it stimulates the dormant or under productive areas of your brain responsible for anxiety and depression. Maybe I explained that wrong but that’s what I remember reading..

Anyways, does anyone have thoughts on this? Maybe even experience? Thanks! Hope everyone’s having a great day/night!

As far as I know, its been studied in universities, but a standard treatment protocol hasn't been developed or gone through clinical trials. It looks promising, but it requires the kinds of magnetic fields that MRI scanners produce, so if someone tries to get you to buy a helmet with rare earth magnets, recognize it as the snake oil that it is!

I have seen treatment centers and specialized places where doctors and trained people perform the treatment. That is what I was referring to... Is there some “home treatment” that you have seen?

I've never heard of TMS Therapy before. But I learn something new each day.

Since it sounds like TMS Therapy is rather new, than I would want the experts to know and learn more about it before getting excited about it.
