TMS Therapy for Anxiety

Everyone experiences occasional anxiety, but some people suffer from overwhelming fears of everyday situations. If you feel these excessive and persistent worries, you may have an anxiety disorder.

What is anxiety?

Anxiety causes intense, excessive, and persistent worries. Often, these sudden, intense feelings escalate into panic attacks, leaving you feeling out of control and helpless. Anxiety disorders interfere with your daily life and can lead you to avoid things you love.

Anxiety is caused by a variety of factors, including your environment, genetics, medical history, and brain chemistry. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) addresses the brain chemistry piece of anxiety. TMS treatment uses magnetic pulses to stimulate your brain, creating new neural connections and alleviating your intense anxiety.

What are the symptoms of anxiety?

  • Nervous, restless, or tense feelings
  • Increased heart rate
  • Rapid breathing
  • Sweating
  • Shaking
  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Trouble concentrating or thinking about anything other than the present worry
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) problems
  • Difficulty controlling worry
  • Avoiding things that trigger anxiety

Contact your doctor if you’re experiencing these symptoms.
