Your dreams await!
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an FDA-approved treatment for depression. Our TMS machine uses modern state-of-the-art Brainsway equipment to target depression at the root using simple magnets, unlike ECT which uses electricity. TMS activates certain parts of the brain to "wake up" neurons in regions of the brain, notably the Dorsal Lateral Prefrontal Cortex (dl-pfc) and has extremely limited side effects - unlike medications. TMS also has numerous protocols that our office uses to address a range of mental conditions. We have many TMS specialists who will customize your unique program. These treatments can also be rotated to target specifically your condition and make a treatment plan that is unique for you!

TMS for PTSD and Trauma
TMS for PTSD has become a popular protocol since it has excellent effectiveness at reducing PTSD symptoms, such as hypervigilence, flashbacks, and general anxiety associated with trauma. This is a non-medication approach to treating PTSD that is often used in conjunction with our EMDR protocol. Individuals enrolled in our TMS services qualify for our intensive EMDR program, which is typically covered by insurance as well.
TMS for ChroniC Pain
TMS has a large body of research to support its use in the treatment of chronic pain and fibromyalgia. Recent studies have found that its benefit extends beyond neuropathic pain in that it can inhibit or excite neurons that are responsible for misfiring in pain conditions. See recent NIH study. We have succesfully worked with numerous individuals who have had failed attempts with other methods of chronic pain. The difference with Pacific Mind Spa is that we are able to utilize combination approaches, such as Hypnotherapy for Pain and EMDR: Pain Protocol in conjunction with TMS to treat and manage it once and for all!
TMS in Combination with Psychotherapy

If you are enrolled in our TMS program, we guarantee you availability for EMDR, Hypnotherapy, Brainspotting, Couples Therapy, or any other services that we offer.
