DEEP TMS – Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Depression and OCD. Call today for a free consultation.
If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, you may have heard about TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation). TMS is an FDA-approved alternative to medication for treating Depression, without side effects such as weight gain, loss of sleep, lessened libido or fogged thinking.
Deep TMS differs from standard TMS in that the magnetic pulse is able to reach deeper (limbic) areas of the brain. The limbic area impacts mood regulation and motivation. which is often negatively affected in patients who are depressed or suffer from OCD symptoms.
Interpersonal Psychiatry has been offering TMS services to its patients longer than any other provider in the area. Our experience in Deep TMS makes for a supportive and caring healing process for our patients.
Deep TMS is offered at both our Lawrence and Kansas City locations.

What Is Deep TMS?
Deep TMS from Interpersonal Psychiatry
Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) uses magnetic waves to reach deep into a targeted area of the brain called the limbic system, which impacts mood regulation and motivation.
Deep TMS stimulates the neurons in the limbic system, which promotes building neural connections. This stimulation can alleviate the symptoms of OCD and Depression.
Deep TMS is an FDA-approved safe alternative to medication for Depression and OCD. Deep TMS has none of the side effects associated with medication, such as weight gain, loss of sleep, fogged thinking, and lessened libido.
Deep TMS is often completely covered by insurance, leaving no out of pocket cost to you.
