What is TMS Therapy?

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is an FDA-approved non-medication-based option for treating depression. TMS generates a magnetic field that creates a mild electric current. This activates brain cells that tend to be underactive in depression, while promoting the release of neurotransmitters to help improve mood. TMS targets the part of the brain specifically involved in mood regulation. TMS also works on a concept called neuroplasticity. By stimulating the left prefrontal cortex, TMS therapy can create new brain pathways for more effective transmission.

Will TMS Therapy Work for Me?

TMS therapy has been found to help up to 50% of patients achieve remission, and it has produced up to a 75% response rate in other patients who were unable to get sufficient relief from conventional treatments such as medication management or psychotherapy. TMS therapy works best when used in combination with other therapy modalities. Ongoing and completed clinical trials suggest applying TMS technology to conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar depression, PTSD, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, autism and chronic pain as well as smoking cessation and stroke rehabilitation.

Why Choose New Frontiers?

Numerous studies have shown that a multipronged treatment approach is superior to any single-modality therapy for various psychiatric conditions. The reason: How we feel is affected by a multitude of factors. Dr. Hong Yin is an experienced provider of high-quality TMS as well as a strong advocate for practicing evidence-based treatments (effectiveness substantiated by medical literature), including TMS. She considers all the factors that affect how you feel.

To create the most effective treatment plan, Dr. Yin needs a clear picture of the underlying causes. Her aim is to get an accurate diagnostic picture and then deliver appropriate treatment and medical advice for your individual circumstances. This often includes evidence-based medication management (e.g. the right class, duration of treatment and dosage) as well as various psychotherapy modalities (e.g. dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure response prevention) in addition to TMS. She provides helpful treatment options and she helps you formulate a plan to sustain your therapeutic benefits.
