TMS NeuroHealth Centers Opens Door to Non-Drug Treatment for Depression in Tysons Corner

MCLEAN, VIRGINIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2011) - TMS NeuroHealth Centers is pleased to announce the opening of TMS NeuroHealth Centers, Tysons Corner, the first of a national network of centers offering TMS Therapy, a proven non-drug treatment for depression.

TMS Therapy is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive medical treatment for patients with depression without any of the side effects typically experienced with antidepressant medication, such as weight gain, sexual problems or fatigue. It uses highly focused magnetic pulses to gently stimulate the area of the brain that controls mood. This specific area has been identified as underactive in people who suffer from depression. Stimulation leads to the release of chemical neurotransmitters, relieving the symptoms of depression.

TMS treatments take less than an hour and are conducted in-office at our comfortable TMS NeuroHealth Centers, over a six week period. Patients can resume normal activities, such as driving themselves home or to work, immediately following treatment.

Dr. Niku Singh, Medical Director of TMS NeuroHealth Centers, Tysons Corner commented, "Depression is a physical condition and we are excited to offer this most advanced targeted therapy that stimulates the area of the brain affected. Studies have shown that 1 in 2 patients experience significant improvement and 1 in 3 are completely free of depression symptoms after six weeks of TMS Therapy. These results exceed what can be expected from anti-depressant medication."
